Strategic Planning and Decisionmaking
Combining business acumen with graceful facilitation, I have worked with dozens of business units and several non-profit clients to create, define, refine and communicate their strategic plans. I use a data-centered and interactive approach to identifying new business opportunities, focus limited resources on more robust outcomes, and clarify initiatives.
In a workshop setting, I have facilitated groups from two to 25 participants. Objectives range from making a difficult decision to futuristic scenario planning, screening new technologies to reviewing potential acquisition candidates. Utilizing a host of tools and exercises, I customize the collective time to fit the specific needs of the client.
After managing projects for larger consulting firms for over ten years, I continue to oversee projects for my clients and consulting colleagues. As team advisor for Tuck Global Consultancy, I work with second-year MBA students in a second-year elective that applies their coursework to an International consulting assignment sponsored by a major corporation.
Leadership and Organization Development
Coaching business leaders has been a part of my consulting work for over a decade. Today I continue to work closely with my client leaders and their leadership teams, and have added Executive Coaching to my leadership offering.
Technology Screening and Business Development
In both one-on-one and small group setting, I have coached and led efforts to explore new technologies and new applications for existing technologies. Working for and with business development managers, we have identified growth opportunities based on new markets, products, and geographies, and new ways of thinking about their business.
Senior Management and Boardroom Communications
Finetuning their interpersonal and visual (PowerPoint) skills, I help managers and students become better communicators. Identifying a deliberate communications strategy, creating and presenting a coherent story, and designing high-impact visuals have raised the credibility of hundreds of my clients and students over the years.
