How are we together?

Who do we want to become?

Is there something about the way we’re working together that we want to change?

Where are we going/What’s the horizon?

What needs to change for us to move toward that horizon with improved surefootedness and success?

Do we have the right people and infrastructure to get there?

Are there areas where we’re not meeting our own expectations?  Our customer’s expectations?

What’s happening?

What’s the one thing that would make the greatest difference in how we perform together and execute as a team?


As you think about holding your team offsites in Q4, I wanted to share some of the questions I pose when working with senior leadership teams.  Depending on business circumstances and goals, we might be exploring any number of things from faster and more flawless execution to redefining mission and values.  But the common thread is moving toward becoming a more Self-Correcting Team℠ — more anticipatory, cohesive, responsive, adaptable, trusting, efficient, resilient, and accountable.

All without you being the taskmaster, hub, or getting dragged into the weeds.

For more on working together to build a Self-Correcting Team℠, drop me a note:   My next openings are in September.  Highly customized, in-person sessions tailored to your specific goals.  With prep work and debrief between you and I for each session.


Also in September, there will be two openings in the Private Guidance Magnificent Leadership® Ascension Program.

This unique offering of concierge consulting is designed for bold leaders like you who want to create a lasting imprint of meaningful contribution to the world.

Bespoke, comprehensive, confidential.
Customized development, trusted guidance, priority access to my calendar, personalized strategic sessions, review of materials, preparation for high stakes presentations, after-hours responsiveness, and full, unlimited, direct access to me for executive, business, and personal coaching.

Fees begin at $15,000/month or 135K annually.  2 openings, late September.

For a significantly lower investment, you can apply to attend the Magnificent Leadership® Annual Event on October 19+20 in Raleigh.  This is the only live, in-person event I offer all year, and it will sell out.  Go here to read about this year’s program and reserve your spot at this unique business leadership event. It only happens once a year and has extraordinary guest speakers talking about real business successes and challenges.

Questions?  You can reach me here.

I hope you’re soaking up summer.  And preparing for fall.
