Our Mission: DEVELOP 10 PERCENTERS!

There exists an incredible language barrier between the C-suite (those who set strategic direction) and project managers (those charged with its execution). Only 10% of people say they understand their company’s strategy and its connection to their daily work. It’s hard to run a business or a project with those kinds of numbers. Our mission is to develop 10 Percenters.

Who are 10 Percenters? Read more...

Simply stated, 10 Percenters are a rare a breed of project leaders who consistently deliver meaningful results through the cooperative efforts of others. There are four important points to be made here.

  1. 10 Percenters are project leaders, meaning their primary responsibility is to lead and direct others in the completion of mission critical projects (often without the legitimate authority to do so).
  2. They’re consistent with their delivery. While they treat each project and person as unique, their approach is both steady and reliable.
  3. They know what constitutes meaningful results – always maintaining a clear line-of-site between the team’s efforts and the broader goals of the business.
  4. They work carefully to ensure the cooperative efforts of others by fostering an atmosphere of trust, inclusiveness and mutual respect.

Every piece of content… every public speaking engagement… every workshop and seminar… every e-course… every mentoring and coaching session… is focused on the development 10 percenters! That’s it. That’s why we exist. I encourage you to explore our site and put our thinking to the test. We’ll supply you with the tools for thought and practice you’ll need to join the exclusive ranks 10 Percent.
