Are You, Your Group Or Your Project
Not Where You Want To Be?
Then you want to get from where you are to where you want to be faster, smoother
and with less wear and tear.
Your journey from "A to Z" could be one of these transistions:
- From a smaller role to a much bigger role
- From individiual contibutor to manager
- From managing local to managing globally
- From a career flat spot to a career high
- From a struggling team to a high performing team
- From a questionable initiative to a strong initiative
- From a misfiring organization to a thriving organization
- From being a small company to being a bigger company
To lay out the best path forward, I recommend you do a comprehensive evaluation of the
current situation. You will learn a lot about how you can get your group, project or yourself
where you want to be and faster.
For over twenty years I have been enabling organizations, projects and managers to be more successful at VMware, Cisco Systems, Amazon Lab126, Sun Microsystems, Adaptec, HP, TI,
GE and at over 50 small and large client companies.
I am a Transition Expert. Through my guidance and resources I enable managers to get from where they are to where they want to be faster and easier.
I want to serve as your strategy partner and progress accelerator.
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.
“Neil's strong client partnering approach works well with managers who prefer resources that help them find the right answers for them or their organization rather than giving you standard, 'works anywhere' answers."
What Might Be Helpful
What could be attractive is behind the scenes support that enables you to meet your goals that is convenient, efficient, delivered in useable chunks, affordable and non-intrusive.
If so, perhaps my online guidance and resources (assessments, guides, checklists, models, templates, processes) can be helpful to you in moving forward faster and more smoothly.
I would be happy to share with you the lessons learned and skills I gathered through twenty years of experience in making organizations, projects and managers more successful at VMware, Cisco Systems, Amazon Lab126, Sun Microsystems, Adaptec, HP, TI, GE, small companies and start ups.

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 and pick the best one 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.
If you would like to meet to discuss your goals and challenges and do a diagnosis of the situation, I would be happy to give you my thoughts about getting from "A to Z".
If it is a mutual fit, I can also outline how I can be helpful as you move forward. If you think this complimentary meeting would be beneficial, please schedule an appointment with the online calendar.
I look forward to talking with you.
