What do I do?
I weave dreams & organise chaos. I simplify the complex, improve the status quo & help you work towards the 'future' that could be.
What exactly do I do?
What I'm really good at is working with people to gather ideas (or issues) & then I help structure them into a manageable cohesive picture.
Its about themes, visions, building blocks & roadmaps. Its about accepting things as they are, aiming for simplicity & listening to the people who know your business.
How do I do it?
I listen, ask questions & then listen again. I need to listen because I'm not the expert - you & your people are. After that I help clarify, classify & sort.
Can't anyone do that?
Some can but not all. Truth is we all have strengths & weaknesses & some of you aren't naturals at this - you are too 'into' detail or too occupied 'doing' to see what I can see.
A simple summary......
I approach you & your people with humility, naivety & wonder. I use a mix of tact, collaboration & genuine interest to help identify opportunities & problems. I overlay these with your vision & like magic together we create a roadmap that helps your organisation navigate a world of change.
Am I available to everyone?
No. I have strong principles & choose not to work with some.
Can I be hired?
I have a full time gig but it doesnt preclude small opportunities especially for community, not for profits & volunteer organisations. It never hurts to ask.
