Do you know a CEO facing changes that are frustrating them? Clients typically call when they are looking to make changes in themselves or their organizations. Often, this is when they need to find new ways to scale, develop exit strategies, get unstuck from a business plateau, re-think strategies or about how to better execute, innovate, or develop more effective leadership. When CEOs are feeling frustrated by resistance, or they are finding it just isn't fun anymore, they should talk to John.
