As Woody Allen once said “Those who can’t do, teach. Those who can’t teach, teach gym.” No offense to teachers. Nor to George Bernard Shaw, who wrote the original line that Mr. Allen paraphrased and added to beautifully.
The point is that you need to be very selective in your choice of business expertise. The perspective, knowhow, and ability to “cut through the noise” and ask the right questions are all something that can only be learned through direct experience. And not just past experience, but current.
This is why in addition to Threadian I continue to build my own business at XY Wellness.
By my nature and by commitment to my clients, I will neither allow my curiosity to be sated nor my pace of learning to slow.
The expertise that I bring to each engagement is hard earned. As a successful senior executive and company builder, I am able to work with my clients on a wide-range of strategic issues across a wide array of customer segments.
Collaboration and partnership are the hallmarks of every Threadian engagement. Frequently my clients hold more answers than they realize, but need my help to properly frame a complex, difficult issue. To ask better questions.
Like my clients, I do not hesitate to ask for help or tap into additional resources whenever the problem at-hand warrants it. This is not about ego; this is about your success.
