For years, I’ve had people tell me I should go into consulting.
I’ve always had a passion for sales, customer service and leadership development. The three are always intertwined and, regardless of the industry I’m associated with, my attention inevitably turns to some combination of these three topics. No matter what problem I’m trying to solve, the solution involves either growing the business, improving the service so we can grow the business, or addressing leadership issues so we can improve the service in order to grow the business.
I believe in addressing issues head on, and I’ve developed a reputation for tackling problems and opportunities in these areas. So this year, I finally decided to take the plunge and see what I could do to help even more organizations improve in these areas. Taking the easy way out, I quickly decided to call my new venture The Voland Group.
So who is this group, you ask? Well, over the years, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some pretty sharp folks – superstars in a variety of areas. Marketing, finance, training, data analysis, etc. You name it, and I probably know a go-to person or two in that area. But what makes them special is that their passion.
You know that feeling when you meet a kindred spirit? Someone who believes what you believe, thinks the way you think and dreams the way you dream? What if you could gather all of these people together into a sort of super-group? Imagine a team of people, each with their own unique skill sets, that come together as the need arises in order to save the day. That’s how The Voland Group works.
Those who know me will tell you that I don’t believe in doing things half-way. I don’t tackle a job unless I plan to be successful. And success for me doesn’t mean meeting my client’s expectations. It means blowing them out of the water. So depending on the client’s needs and the skills required, I tap into my Rolodex of superheros and assemble a team that will make a real difference. It’s taken a while, but I’ve finally developed a web site as well. I’ll be using this blog to share my thoughts on topics related to our core mission. But because this blog is for you, I’d love to hear what you’d like to read about.
There you have it. Ready or not, The Voland Group is here. Please introduce yourself. We’d love to meet you.
