About My Perspective

I help leaders grow right and leave risk left. Together we assess what these leaders need to know in order to grow their enterprise.

Whether confronting crisis or developing strategy, clients have come to me with complex situational problems and ongoing strategic needs. In addition to the facts and analyses they themselves can provide, they need refined research and analysis from a new, objective perspective. I help clients consider all sides of each problem in order to derive clear choices among best solutions and fast decisions:

  • Converting what I have seen in functional risk and strategy, I help these leaders identify what they need to know, sort through options, and move forward towards solid growth.
  • Together we make their teams independently responsible, reliable and really useful.
  • We look back at history and through the present circumstances to forecast and prevent crises, mitigate and resolve active crises, and ensure healthy growth to the right of risk.
  • Where the enterprise is experiencing set backs, together we encourage rebound by breaking the repetitive crisis cycle.

I partner with my clients to ask the “impertinent” questions necessary for clarity of vision.
