There is no problem that will not yield to an hour and a white board
As an executive, I found that whether the "problem" was a technical setback, the need for a whole new strategy, or implementing an new initiative, we could go from anxiety to momentum through one focused discussion. Of course, full development or implementation of those ideas takes much more than an hour, but the point is this: When a business faces an important issue, there is tremendous benefit to getting everyone engaged and aligned on a productive track fast.
You can go from stalled to confident, organized action quickly by accessing competent bandwidth.
In many cases I:
- Know how to address such an issue
- Unlock the power of what your people already know (and flag key missing knowledge)
- Help the team use informed intuition when data is incomplete
- Generate motivation and momentum
