Extra-ordinary Consulting

We talk here a lot about the need to be extra-ordinary. Above normal, something that stands out and draws people to come back to see what you are doing, or to talk about you to their colleagues.

I could have just posted my experiences and views on how you can become extraordinary. I could have, but thats what everybody else does. And after all, I want this to be a home of extraordinary consulting.

So I have reached out to some of the worlds leading thinkers on consulting. High profile and successful people who have inspired thousand with their frank speaking styles, leading edge techniques, and powerful results.

The results have been remarkable.

I hope their advice, insight and unique views are as useful to you as they have been to me.
