Did you know that a 1.56% monthly rate of change will enable you to double your revenue in 3 years?

Here’s a one page way to get there.

Patrick Lencioni sixteen years ago wrote his leadership fable titled “The FOUR OBSESSIONS of an EXTRAORDINARY EXECUTIVE”. Here’s a  link to his Friday with Vistage webinar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqz6rEPAnmg

His focus was on:

  1. Build and maintain a cohesive leadership team
  2. Create organizational clarity
  3. Over-communicate organizational charity
  4. Reinforce organizational charity through human system

His book can be read in a weekend (180 pages) worth the purchase and read. February 15 & 16, 2017 Michael Lorsch, from The Table Group will be in Austin leading a 3 hour workshop for business leaders through Lencioni’s thought process.

Task: do a visual planning session with post-its (stickies) with your team and prioritize the top 3 groupings needed to reach and exceed your intended outcome. Pick a topic: process improvement, problem, opportunity and have each of your team come up with 7 words on 7 different post-it’s and create your infinity wall. You will amazed in how quick clarity is found and how much you learn about the real issues facing you.



Setting realistic weekly, monthly, and quarterly goals, objectives and targets and holding your team accountable is a step in the right direction to double your revenue in 3 years.

I grew up in Carlsbad, north San Diego County, lost my dad as a teenager, went into the USAF for four years and hired on with 3M in 1969. Received my AA from Santa Barbara City College, BA and Masters from Redlands University and after 33 plus years, I retired from 3M in 2002. As I look back on my life, I have been creating myself and developing my skill sets to be a business coach and a Vistage Chair. I am president of SEOT, a "personal improvement" consulting firm spending most of my time working with Central Texas executives running small to medium size for-profit companies who are focusing on improving their profitability greater than their competition. My area of interest is assisting senior executives in creating a better balance between business commitments and personal relationships. I also facilatate three leadership labs each consisting of a dozen owners, presidents and CEOs. We meet monthly both in a group setting as well as in a 1-to-1 coaching session. Our focus is to sharpen each others' skills in becoming better leaders, making better decisions and taking ourselves and companies to that next level. Who are we? My members are experienced top executives who recognize that they don’t have all the answers and who actively seek the company of successful peers—both to give and receive insights and ideas. My members mine the 200 plus years of chief executive experience that comes together in our monthly meetings and members are eager to offer their own experience and insights in the process. As a group, we spend our time exploring topics members can't discuss anywhere else. My members have many other places where they can engage in idle, "cocktail party" chatter. Our mission is to provide the setting for discussing the "undiscussable." Where or who can you go to for confidential, honest feedback to assist you in minimizing your personal "Worry List"?
