I believe in “stretching” people and organizations to be more than they thought possible
This starts with “Challenging the Status Quo,” one of the core values.The Strategy in Motion™ process starts with “Listening and Learning” to determine if the way we have “always” done it is truly the best way as our reality shifts. Then, developing the strategic plan with a shared “vision” for a company (or a team) is extremely powerful.
My dad was a catalyst who stretched and challenged me in many ways. He always asked me the same question, “Have you written anything yet?” As an entrepreneur, he would remind me he was “successfully unemployed” because he worked for himself. Though he had great ideas, passion, and charisma, he was never able to successfully scale a company. My dad lacked a “sherpa” and sacrificed everything – including his family. Strategic planning would have helped him enormously.
