How We Work Together

Whether I'm working with companies or executives, everything we do is focused on helping you to:

  1. Know what you've done - by deconstructing, reconstructing, rediscovering and assessing the value you've delivered.

  2. Know your potential - by rediscovering and clearly articulating how you've delivered value, and your potential to deliver differentiated value.

  3. Know the purpose behind your value - by rediscovering and articulating why you do what you do.

  4. Identify and close the gaps necessary to achieve your potential.

  5. Act! Knowledge is inert. Acting on what you know to close gaps and achieve your potential is what counts.

"If you’re serious about really understanding your strengths, your weaknesses, and optimizing the chance you’re going to pick the correct role with the correct company... you owe it to yourself to engage with Ron."

David P. Moran | CEO
Travelport Digital |Dublin, Ireland

"Ron's framework not only keeps you focused on mapping and communicating your value, it enables you to assess whether or not you're increasing your value proposition
or if you're off track."

Michael J.T. Steep | SVP, Global Operations
PARC - A Xerox Company

"He helps you understand how to apply very relevant sales techniques,
which many people do not instinctively possess, to position your value."

What We Do

As partners, we work together to realize your vision, mission, strategy, and key outcomes by leveraging the 3 areas of core competency I’ve developed (Sales, Marketing, and Messaging & Communications) across a synergistic career comprised of Executive Coaching (+20 years), Retained Executive Search, and Sales Performance Coaching all built on a foundation of Business Process Reengineering. Having coached executives all over the world, we work together to unleash your leadership ability to build corporate cultures that inspire employees. I guide clients in how to identify, creatively communicate, and position their differentiated value to influence, inspire, and grow their businesses to include developing prospective leaders who will help achieve their vision. I speak to anyone who will listen. I work to be my own best case study. I practice everything I preach.

  • We take an unconventional approach: From messaging to the scope of executive client engagement, we challenge your leadership perception of the status quo by asking bigger questions. We shake things up by developing insightful new perspectives enabling you as a leader to lean into bigger problems. Only when you see or hear things in a new way will you see a bigger picture.

  • Networking = Collaboration: 50 million executives can't be wrong. For more than 2 decades, I've collaborated with an extensive executive network on an unprecedented global scale.

"Over the last year, Ron has given me mind-opening tools and techniques enabling me to acquire greater perspective to think differently and approach problems differently."

What are executives saying?

"If you want to find out how to sell yourself to a broader audience – talk to Ron. If you haven’t been able to sell yourself to others – talk to Ron."
