The importance of knowing what stage of growth your organization is in
The single most important finance strategy you’ll ever use
The difference between high leverage and low leverage leadership
The secret to eliminating the overwhelm that feels so central to leadership.
I’ll also share concrete, real-world examples about how my clients have made a few simple yet critical shifts in their approaches to strategy, finances, and leadership to set their organizations up for massive growth.
