Don’t hire a consultant!

In most cases the important knowledge for sustainable change does not come from an external consultant. Solving complex problems by using the expertise that resides inside an organization can be extremely powerful.

This is what I realized over the 100+ transformation projects I have conducted. My clients love the well-planned workshops I facilitate for them.  Two to three days with typically 10-20, but sometimes even 50 or 150 individuals can create enormous amounts of energy. Whether in offsite, physical settings or in online formats — both works. Imagine how this could help you to align your troops and steer your transformation.

Assignments ranging from large, complex transformation programs in international settings to highly specialized strategy projects. Working to a large extent — but not exclusively — in Life Sciences and Healthcare, innovation, customer focus, and performance improvement are my main areas of interest. But what I like most: getting the experts to talk to each other.

Why Strategy Coaching is better than Strategy Consulting

Do you trust your people to come up with a solution or would you rather pay consultants to tell you the way forward? If you have read my website until this point, you will know my preference.

If you now want to understand how this might work in real life, take a look at this short video. You can see me in action during a strategy workshop. I also explain the essence of Strategy Coaching and how this differs from classical strategy consulting.

Leverage the expertise of your own people!

Collaborative problem solving can be designed. Workshops need to actively involve all relevant stakeholders to co-create the best solution for a complex problem. Take a look at this 2-minute video to see an example.

Each workshop is tailor-made. Participants create and refine the solution working in parallel teams in iterations. This way, you not only achieve results quickly but you align all stakeholders to agree and promote the solution. It accelerates the implementation and creates ownership.

And you spend much less on consultants. Many virtual formats available
