MaxImize Your Executive Level Team


This team has to rely on each others strengths and minimize the weaknesses (areas of opportunity). We have long supported the concept promoted by the authors in “First Break All the Rules.” That is – discover the strengths of individuals and develop them more. Hire backup to their weaknesses.

This also means if you need a leader that can think quickly and make decisions at a pace to keep several balls in the air at the same time and you hire a person whose strength is careful analysis and great with details, it is a formula for frustration and even failure.

Create a formula for success.
