    One of the best things about strategy consulting is that you get to work across a broad spectrum of industries, giving you exposure to a lot of the wonderful variety that exists around us in the business world. However, one of the most unnerving things about strategic consulting is that you’re supposed to be able to increase productivity across this very same landscape without respect to the size, type, and complexity of the client. Whether it’s Betty Billionaire or Sammy Startup, you’re there to add value. While we can’t give you comprehensive advice to equip you for any and…

With both competing for a slice of the AU$43 billion home improvement market Masters has a got a few things wrong. Point 4 (below) describes workplace culture as a significant differentiator. I had the pleasure of doing some culture work with Bunnings a few years ago and I can tell you their service-oriented culture is no accident. And…

    All too often people think in terms of what’s not working as opposed to what’s working. They see the proverbial glass as being half empty as opposed to half full and expect the worst will happen. There are nine negative consequences to this type of thinking. 1. Our mindset shifts to playing not to lose as opposed to playing to win. 2. Our energy plummets as does the energy of those we interact with. 3. Our customers become reticent to engage with us fully. 4. Our ability to use our talents and skills in compelling and powerful ways is diminished. 5. We live in a place of scarcity…

Being a purveyor of positivity allows for the following benefits: 1. During times of change and uncertainty positive people…
