Manager Transitions

  • Moving from managing a function to managing multiple functions
  • Moving from managing locally to managing globally
  • Moving from project manager to strategic program manager
  • Moving from a career flat spot to a career high opportunity

Organization Transitions

  •  Moving from struggling team to high performing team
  •  Moving from questionable initiative to strong initiative
  •  Moving from misfiring organization to thriving organization
  •  Moving from small company to a bigger company


Understanding Where "A" Is

current situation.

Getting from "A to Z"

Now comes the tricky part.  Getting from "A to Z". 

 

You will need the right strategy for moving ahead. That requires knowing alternative ways you can get to where you want to be and which one fits best for you and your situation. 

 

You will want to know what issues you will likely run into and how to deal with them. And, you will want to find ways to help you stay positive when things do not quite go the way you want them.

 

 

What Might Be Helpful

What could be attractive is behind the scenes support that is convenient, efficient, delivered in bite sized useable chunks, affordable and non-intrusive. Support that includes someone who serves as your strategy partner and progress accelerator.

 

Someone who could give feedback on your thinking and your strategies, plans and issues. And support that provides access to deep insight surveys, proven best practices tools and referrals to other resources that accelerate progress.

 

 

Can I Help?

If any of this rings true for you, my online guidance sessions and deep insight tools can enable you to get where you want faster with less wear and tear.

 

I have been enabling managers, programs and organizations to accelerate progress and be more successful for over 20 years. I have served as an executive, program manager and internal consultant at VMware, Cisco Systems, Amazon Lab126, Sun Microsystems, Adaptec, HP, TI, and GE. Client companies have included startups, small firms, mid-sized companies and the big brand companies.

 

I now serve as a Transition Advisor.  Through my guidance and resources I enable managers and their organizations or programs to get from where they are to where they want to be faster and easier.  I am an effective and efficient teacher, barrier buster and guide for those who want to leverage my deep experience.  I would be happy to share with you the lessons learned and the skills I developed through twenty years of experience so your career and progress accelerates.

How I Work With You

The highest value, most affordable support is provided online via phone and computer screen sharing so I can show you tools.

 

Here is how I often work to help managers achieve their goals.

 

First I enable managers to fully diagnose the current situation by conducting a comprehensive, objective assessment of strengths, blind spots and gaps.

 

Then based upon that data we consider different strategies for moving ahead and pick the best strategy for the situation.  I also help lay out a roadmap that stages activities in a carefully sequenced manner.  This avoids overloading you, your organization or your project team as the strategy is implemented.

 

I then can provide on-going guidance in weekly 30 minute chunks as you work through the details of planning and implementing the strategy.

 

My guidance and tools also speeds up learning for managers.  They learn faster and deeper while doing.

 

 

My Experience

I have been doing management consulting for over 20 years.   I have been fortunate to consult to a wide variety of clients in many industries and all levels. I have served as an executive, program manager and internal consultant at VMware, Cisco Systems, Amazon Lab126, Sun Microsystems, Adaptec, HP, TI, and GE. Client companies have included startups, small firms, mid-sized companies and the big brand companies.

 

 

My Mission

My mission is to enable managers to achieve great results with less stress and fewer hours.  I want to accelerate their capability building. I want to help them enjoy their work and career more. I want them to get the rewards they deserve by working at their fullest potential.   I want to serve as their strategy partner and progress accelerator.
