Strategy Advisory programs refer to many things, not only creating the familiar, 3- year strategic plan for an organization.

Collaboration, business development, marketing, talent development and intellectual property are all different types of strategy advisory programs.

Here are examples of a 90 day and 12+ month strategy advisory program.

If you email me at darrensmith@cimastrategic.com I will cheerfully send you two steps to consider in regards to improving your current strategy.

Darren’s strategy advisory philosophy:

Less is more.

Simple is beautiful.

We don’t need perfection, we need success.

At the completion of a strategy advisory program, many of my best clients retain me in the role of advisor.

Unlike a lawyer’s ‘retainer’, which is simply a deposit, this represents unlimited access to me.

I help you gain the clarity needed to significantly accelerate the speed and quality of your decision-making. I act as a sounding board and give my clients a third-party objective view to quickly propel them and their businesses forward. My clients report immediate and dramatic improvement in both personal and company-wide performance.

Ongoing conversations that are regularly addressed in our discussions include:

How do I get my global team aligned with the stated goals of the organization?

What steps should our company be taking to maximize talent?

How can I improve our employee’s interactions with our customers?

How do a foster a culture of innovation?

How do I know if I have the right team in place?

Our conversations are candid. We don’t waste time dancing around issues. We identify the root cause of a problem and the most direct solution. We build on strengths.

My services are designed with the client’s best interest in mind. Some prefer direct access via phone, e-mail and Skype, while others desire face-to-face meetings, supported by phone, e-mail and Skype. I offer preferential pricing to organizations that enroll three or more executives in a program. Give me a call today to begin an advisor relationship.

Even more questions…

What do I need to do today to attract top talent that will stick around?

Can you guide me through the termination of a long-term employee who is no longer working out?

How do I prepare my organization for the shift in the labor demographics?

What do I personally need to do to be a better leader for my people and how can I get them to do the same for their employees?

What do I need to do to develop a team that can operate efficiently without me?

I used to have fun at work, but no longer do. How do I put joy back in my work life again?

How do I work smarter so I can have more balance in my life?

How does our organization create a ‘best project I ever worked on’ experience every time?
