Everyone who runs a company wants it to be successful

They start their organization or take over the leadership of an existing enterprise with the clear intention to pilot the company toward a successful future, to build a supportive team, and grow sales and profitability.

They bring all of their life’s experiences to bear and invest their heart, soul and energy into getting everyone in the company to do their assigned jobs to the best of their ability, to work together as a team, and to sacrifice their personal agendas for the sake of the vision of the leader.

While they expect disappointments and setbacks, they are determined to overcome them and grow sales and profitability, but something is missing…

For far too many, the results are not positive

According to the small business administration, at least 70% of all companies that start each year fail and go out of business within 10 years and the ones that survive, most do not reach their full potential.

Here’s the problem: Leaders assume that if you know your product or service, running a company should be the easy part. That’s simply not the case. There’s an art and science to running a company and it’s just as sophisticated as any product or service you might have.

Getting everyone on the team to work together synergistically on behalf of a common vision and set of goals sounds nice but turns out difficult for most to accomplish.

After that laundry list of things that aren’t going right you are probably asking yourself… but what do I do?

My story,

Following receipt of an engineering degree from the City University of New York, I spent four years working in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Washington, DC. At the same time, I attended George Washington Law School at night, graduating in the top 10% of my class. I then moved to California with my wife and daughter and soon opened a private law practice.

After 11 years into my law practice, I found myself struggling financially, unable to keep my staff happy and unaware of how to build a successful and profitable practice. Life had not prepared me for what I was facing. Can you relate? Do you find yourself facing challenges you just don’t know how to deal with effectively?

img_0554Motivated by the desire to make my business profitable, I began researching what it takes for people to produce extraordinary results in their personal lives and careers and for companies to break through to new levels of profitability and success. I took classes, read books and signed up for one seminar after another. Finally, after several years of study, I became a partner in a major law firm, managing an office and enjoying a large income I had only dreamed of previously. I discovered there are answers to the problems we face in business. And now I know what they are.

In 1984, I decided to retire from my law practice so I could help other companies take the same success journey I had taken. Using what I learned, through trial and error, I realized I could guide others to move to their own success goals, bypassing costly, time-consuming detours. I created a 15-step system to deliver repeatable results and I have been teaching that system for the last 30+ years. That is what’s available to you with the Enlightened Business Growth philosophy.

Today, I work as a successful business coach and professional speaker. I speak before SH_unshackled coverthousands of people each year and share my advice with CEOs of corporations of all sizes. My book, Unshackled Leadership has received successful reviews and garnered a following among executives, professionals and students.  I’ve been recognized as an “expert” on radio and TV for my extensive business expertise.

What distinguishes me from other business and/or leadership coaches and speakers is our 15-step system that has been proven to get results for over 30 years. We are ready to make this system available to you if you are ready to watch your company grow 2 or 3 times faster than you have ever experienced.
