Thanks for visiting: what have we done?

If I were independently wealthy the events of the past three months would make total sense. In November, after 8 years with MDA Leadership Consulting; including two as Managing Partner, and two as President — I left the firm to start my own venture. Now, with two kids in private college and a 14 year old still at home…my wife Melinda and I are seeking to lead the life we imagine. We intend to build a virtual, low overhead consultancy with a “Robin Hood” strategy — sharing what the Blue Chip companies know about leadership and strategy for the benefit of closely held businesses and professional non-profits who can’t or don’t want to pay Blue Chip consulting fees. Our mission: We celebrate, develop and inspire ordinary people to lead with courage and change the world around them for Good!

In the coming days we will share stories about exciting work and seek opinions about philosophies, strategies and our ideas. You can follow us here, on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn. Thanks to everyone who encouraged us to take the plunge. Stay tuned…
