Experience is important. Learning is important. The only way to learn and get that valued experience is by listening. We will listen carefully to your challenges and problems and work to develop a plan that meets your specific needs, not one that is pre-packaged.
I have spent the last thirty years of my career in the midst of local government, economic development and growing small to medium size enterprises. Whether is it a comprehensive plan, a strategic development issue, business planning, innovation, communication, or managing teams I can help you. Areas of expertise include:
Strategic Planning and Design -- Using non-linear tools like Strategic Foresight, Design Thinking and Group Flow Dynamics we can exponentially accelerate your business organization. The weaknesses inherent in traditional strategic planning methods and outcomes will pale in comparison to the 21st Century tools we can bring to your business, organization or project. This also leads to innovation an creativity on an accelerated scale creating more wins for you and your organization
Economic Development Administration and Organizational Development -- What does it take to start, grow and mange a new economic development organization? How do we create strategy and plan to grow and expand our economy? What are the best practices in the areas of finance, administration attraction, business retention, entrepreneurship, workforce development, resilient communities, circular economies and other aspects of a local economy. We have have either done the work or done the research and can assist you.
Capital Creation for Economic Development and Non-Profits -- "A good plan attracts capital" said Abraham Lincoln... or was it Albert Einstein? It doesn't matter because whoever said it was right. Whether it is a private sector business or a non-profit, a good plan will attract the capital needed to flourish. Our experience developing plans and executing on fundraising can help your project, large or small prosper.
Futures Thinking -- The world is changing at even a greater pace than it has in the past. The next few decades will bring new challenges created by political, social, economic, and environmental driving forces that we have not seen before. Is your business, economic development organization, or community ready for these changes? How will it impact your economic development or business growth strategy? We can help sort through these changes using Futures thinking tools and strategies.
Leadership and Personal Performance -- My years in the field have taught me the best habits and practices of leaders and high impact performers. Learn from the successes and mistakes I have made and take advantage of the research I have done in the field of altered states of consciousness or "Flow". Imagine performing at levels 200, 300 or even 500% above your current levels of achievement? I can help get you there.
