Experience is important. Learning is important. The only way to learn and get that valued experience is by listening. Listening well.
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, listening to the leaders and people in the community. Whether is it a comprehensive plan, a strategic development issue, business planning, innovation, communication, or managing teams I have been there.
Economic Development and Organizational Development -- How do we create strategy and plan to grow and expand our economy? What are the best practices business attraction, business retention, entrepreneurship, resilient communities, circular economies? I have have either done the work or done the research and can assist you.
Leadership -- Every one who runs for office runs on a platform of economic development, yet they (you) probably don't want to admit you don't know much about the. how, why's and what's of economic development. We can help.
Strategic Planning and Foresight -- 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 organization, business or community ready for these changes? How will it impact your growth strategy? I can help sort through these changes using futures thinking tools and strategies.
High Octane 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.
