Trust is developed over time.
While serving in the advisor to CEOs role, my clients have achieved great financial results, built effective teams, developed more confidence and a clear path to the future, and enhanced their leadership skills.
Some simply wanted a confidential thought partner with whom they could sort through the challenges of leadership. As a high performing client said, “I am a much better CEO because of our work together!” In his case we explored many people issues, board relationships, business strategy, acquisitions and his personal effectiveness as a CEO.
Another client said, “I can always count on you to tell me what I need to hear.” The challenge of being the top dog is that everyone tells you what you want to hear rather than what you need to hear. If you want someone with whom you feel comfortable exploring issues and who will call it like it is, we should have a conversation.
Frankly, no one wakes up one morning and says, “I think that I’ll find a trusted advisor today.” The best way for us to determine whether or not we should work together is for us to get together a few times and talk. If you want to understand my perspective towards leadership or business strategy, read a dozen of my blogs or grab one of my books. I enjoy being an advisor to CEOS, so if I sound like someone who might be able to help you be even more successful, give me a call.
