We’re going to solve the most difficult problem your organisation has. And we’re going to do it without any investment. We’re also going to leverage the best untapped resources you’ve got. And we’ll do all this without creating extra work for you, the leader.
The catch is you must be able to handle the truth of what we reveal to you. And not every leader can. Many prefer to appear certain even if wrong, rather than being right if it means seeming uncertain. It seems to be a political thing.
But if you’re a secure leader and can handle truth in all it’s glorious messiness then we can help unpack the issues keeping you awake at night and deal effectively with them.
Don’t be so sure …
I made this exact offer to an executive at a major organisation. ‘Yes this is a major problem we haven’t been able to solve’ he replied. ‘Yes’ he also said in response to a demonstration, ‘I can how it works. But …’ he declared ‘budgets are a problem.’ A common refrain!
So I offered it for free.
I’m still waiting…
Budgets aren’t really his problem. Power is. He’s putting fires out everywhere with the tools he’s already got and their ineffectiveness makes him busy - and this provides an illusion of value. But now a leader in a rival industry - who can handle the truth - is starting to do it? What effect will this have on our reluctant executive? Is he better at playing catch up than early adopting?
Don’t let this happen to you. Tell us what your problem is … we’ll show you how we can help.
