Weve all been there no matter what type of company we have. Our staff and perhaps our Board of Directors have looked at an issue and seem to come up with the same ineffectual answer. Were at a standstill. Being immersed in a specific industry has its advantages, but can also lead to blindness for new approaches and answers. As business owners and leaders, sometimes we need a different perspective. But who do we turn to?
Thats where I was in early 2008, with a number of critical issues that needed to be prioritized, addressed, and resolved. When I met Jim Sandler of KM Consulting, I could envision the value of the excellent individual coaching.
Within my first one-to-one meeting with Jim, he came up with two to three outstanding ideas to turn my upcoming fundraiser into an even bigger success. Once I saw how quickly and deftly he identified my challenges and created and proposed solutions, I realized that bridging knowledge from industry to industry was his specialty. And through that insight and his direct and clear approach, he is truly able to cultivate an inspired and effective coaching situation.
His wisdom, creative angles and experience is now an integral part of how I approach and tackle short term and long range challenges and opportunities. Our arts organization is flourishing and growing, because he is helping ME to flourish and grow.
Every month, I work Jim Sandler for ideas, goals and also to celebrate the successful outcomes; and it absolutely works for me.
