Are you focusing on your company's productivity levels? Quality? Leadership skills? Team effectiveness? Overall employee motivation? Organizational design? How about putting people in a room and having them discover the power of moving to an efficiently-designed, well-led organization that taps into the energy of individual ownership and teamwork?
So you think you really know what it takes to be a leader in the communications age? You believe that some things are just impossible to do unless you see it happen?

“Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat” Sun Tzu – The Art of War. Most companies that close down use the wrong strategy and wrong tactics. It is a combination for failure. There is a thin line between strategy and tactics; they are different yet both of them are integral in the path to success. Implementing one without the other is ineffective and counter – productive.
Why is it that organizations want to change and just can't seem to fast enough? Why is it that companies and people confuse incremental change with transformation [real deep change]? Today, our workplace and markets keep changing. New ways of thinking and behaving are required because change is major in scope, discontinuous with the past and generally irreversible.
