A brief profile of my clients
My clients are decision-makers and goal-setters accountable for their organization’s growth. Typically, owners, CEOs, general managers, non-profit executive directors, and team leaders.
Common clues that they need my help.
How do their problems and needs come up in conversation? What to they say they’re dealing with? Typically they talk about external threats (competitors, regulations, tastes) and demands (materials and logistics costs , hiring and tastes). Or internal obstacles (brittle organization adaptability and capabilities, weak staff performance, inefficient processes and partners, and culture breakdown)
Few admit outright to be unable to generate growth. No one admits they can’t figure out how to innovate.
