A Message . . .
thirty years have passed since I took on my first consulting assignment.
practice began with technical focus and has become people driven.
Clients have become more sophisticated and people have become more important.
are more savvy and have greater choices in the market place.
has typically become the highest cost of doing business and now drives more
decisions around how a company competes in the marketplace than ever before.
clients continue to worry about costs, margins, marketing and competitiveness,
many are realizing the consequences of short-sighted hiring and training and
the lack of an environment to foster retention, the result of which is high
turnover and lower customer satisfaction.
very early in my consulting career, my focus with clients has been to emphasize
the need to engage staff - in training, coaching and community building.
has changed significantly for me in the past ten years is the emphasis on
empowering both staff and ownership to develop an approach that honors the
organization as a community while attending to the process of resolution and
a celebration of the result.
is significantly different from a client perspective is the trend by clients
to retain services for their own education in building a lasting organization
as well as improving the overall satisfaction of their staffs.
work today contains more and more components centered around community/diversity,
and awareness and listening than at any other time in my career.
am immensely pleased that by furthering my own education, my clients find
benefit and more satisfaction in their businesses.
There is, after all, no greater joy than seeing others succeed, and realizing emotional and financial success for ourselves as well...
