The summer months are a great time for writing and I’m pleased to announce that I have a new book project in development. As I celebrate 10 years as an independent business advisor, it’s important to continue sharing knowledge with the goal of helping leaders to identify strategies to build stronger companies and is consistent with my previous books, courses, and the many articles that I have published over the years.
In my travels, I see various “leadership” resources; however, many lack practical tools that could be readily implemented to generate meaningful results, while others bring little in the way of direct business experience. To each their own, however, I prefer to focus on fundamental actions that business leaders could take to build value in their companies, while filtering out areas that detract from doing so. As an executive, I’ve had a direct role in launching, growing, and transitioning companies, which is a very different type of experience than the norm (if you’ve done it, you will know what I mean). Focusing on strategies that get results and having a resource who has been in the trench is an approach that can move companies forward more effectively and this has never been more important than in today’s new economy.
I have a theory that companies find reasons to opt out of what is in their own best interest. Take a moment and think about what that means. Those who resist this temptation, and instead, face the challenge of building a better business head on, represent the relative few who are positioned for market leadership. This is a powerful mindset and ability, representing the companies that are the choice of strategic partners, investors, successors, and of course, customers. With the right strategies and assistance, this could be your company.
I hope that everyone has an enjoyable and successful summer. Stay tuned for book publication and release details coming soon.
