For you reading this post and familiar with my writings, you will know that this topic of the use of external marketing, business strategy consultants is one that is dear to my heart.

With the current state of the economy and no immediate signs of an impending upturn, corporations are having to slash budgets and in many cases make many key individuals with very specific skills leave the company.

This is where I see in the near future the use of corporate business strategy consultants [such as myself] becoming more and more in demand as companies look for that vital input of skills and strategies.

The problem that businesses face of cours is that of needing a particular role fulfilled and, not having the time to train staff to be able to perform that role. In these instances will turn increasingly to external expertise.

The beauty of using external expertise is the vast amount of perspective, knowledge and experience that they bring. Also, I have found one great advantage being that I often come having worked in multiple industries whereas we see that typically an executive may have been with one company and in that industry for over a decade.

This perceived strength I have found, is something that in fact acts as a weakness as consultants are able to use strategies and tactics from other industries, modify them and bring benefit to completely different industries.

If you are a manager, person of influence, agency executive maybe looking for someone to help kick start a particular business circumstance, consider this post and – I’d be more that interested in hearing your perspective.

To your success,

The question of how to make use of emotional intelligence with businesses is one that is being asked by people found all over the world. It is the seperation of Personal And Self Development from business that it looked at which up until recent years was the way to look at things.

Now of course, we are looking at the most successful leaders and managers [see the book Primal Leadership] and noting that it is something more than their academic accomplishments or their straight line IQ neural connection but; their ability to adapt to and connect with other people.

Emotional Intelligence and the associated Social Intelligence is a critical attribute that is to be embraced by leaders as it is the ability of the manager or leader to get other individuals in the team to execute tasks and to be willing to come up with new ideas.

As we continue to live in this technologically advanced world with organisations looking for the competitive edge, it looks as though this focus on [some say] the more ‘woolly aspects of our skillset could well be the component that sets one manager apart from another.

I’ve felt privileged to have the requisite skillset to be able to combine Business Strategy Development and Self Development skills in order to help organisations and individuals to move foward by first understanding and getting in touch with Emotional & Social Intelligence.

Feel free to contact me should you wish to discuss this or any other business development matter.

As Companies and Businesses as well as organisations of all kinds look for the competitive edge, we have seen that the traditional measure of competence i.e. IQ is not the only measure that is being used as means for hiring staff, developing leaders and ensuring that the future …

… workers and leaders [i.e. the school children] have the necessary skills to give any organisation much needed competitive advantages.

I am currently in India rolling out a series of Organisational Effectiveness seminars throughout the country that will give leaders the tools to first, develop their own EQ competencies and then to be in a position to develop others in their organisations.

Of course Emotional Intelligence In The Workplace is receiving much attention today – why ? because ‘straight A’ individuals are being hired and managers are realising that the ability to be in touch with oneself [Emotional Intelligence] and correspondingly be able to influence and reach others [Social Intelligence] are some of the key skills that are needed today.

It is great to see that here in India leaders have seen the need for such competencies and I am glad to be here to use my skills to effectively assist in changing the world through promoting excellence via Emotional Intelligence.

Does your organisation need a little help from a different perspective ??

Get in touch and maybe we can together do something to improve your circumstance.
