This week, I’m relaunching my beloved organization design consultancy. My little practice was acquired by a boutique management-consulting firm in 2013—there, I became the Chief Innovation Officer and got to lead a crew of geniuses and launch products I am proud of. I had an amazing couple of years with that team; we created a unique coaching model, leadership curriculum, validated assessment tool, talent management solution, and methodology for transforming organizations. For the first time in my career, learning was a significant part of my role; now I’m back on my own, with a lot of new moves, excited to execute.
I get the complexity of workplaces. As a recovering HR exec and management consultant, I know that most organizations aren’t where they’d like to be, especially culturally. Good leaders want to be better. And the notion that evolving our leadership and our organizations is not “core” to the “real” business is nonsense. We can do better, people; I know this to be true.
Are you excited? I’m excited.
