Who I am
A highly focused individual, I live a life of purpose, exploring my talents and following my passions.
I am a keen observer of human nature.
I possess a strong sense of empathy and understanding of what motivates people to strive for increased performance.
This, combined with the ability to see the big picture makes me ideally suited for consulting and achievement facilitating work.
What I do
I assist people in conceiving and following a structured approach to achievement of their personal, business or organizational objectives.
I advocate the top-down methodology, whereby the big picture is ascertained and agreed on, before pursuing specific outcomes.
I help people elevate their thinking from the day to day horizons, evaluate what they do, how they do it and whether there are better ways of doing it.
I’ve been designing and implementing systems to help improve organizational performance for the past 15 years.
My extensive experience in creating computer systems has led me into the domain of systems for human behavior.
My ability to recognize and utilize personal ambition, company culture and interpersonal dynamics allows me to help organizations move forward more effectively.
I begin with the individual at the highest level within the organization, whom I have access to.
First, I help establish absolute clarity and document the objectives of that person’s role in the organization.
Then I assist with working out a systemic way of achieving these objectives, whilst simultaneously moving the individual towards the fulfillment of their personal aspirations.
I repeat this process with every person down the chain of command, helping align individual ambition with organizational objectives.
In my experience, focusing on short-term gains always results in long-term pains, both on the individual and on the organizational level.
Being part of dysfunctional consulting teams several times in my career has been an invaluable experience that taught me what does not work.
I am a strong believer in teaching to fish, and serve mostly as a facilitator of the process rather than telling people what to do.
As an outsider and an impartial observer, I help people and organizations build better systems, better businesses and better lives.
