Many times over the course of my career I’ve sought the counsel of mentors and smart people. I’m seeking that out now more than ever.
As part of my work in entrepreneurship and Blue Ocean Strategy consulting, I find that I don’t like working completely alone. When I’m going into big conversations attempting to solve big problems, I’m generally inviting people, people that are better, stronger, and faster than me to come along.
When a client desires help, it’s about delivering the results. I won’t let my lack of expertise get in the way.
Also, I find it is just more satisfying to be part of a community.
I have a vision for the Blue Ocean Strategist. Right now, it’s a simple website with a growing content list, some decent traffic, a couple of courses in draft stage and that’s about it.
I’ve launched a “community” of sorts. The mission is to allow practitioners of Blue Ocean Strategy and corporate or public sector change agents to have a community without the noise of LinkedIn and Facebook. Over time, I’m hopeful that there will be courses monetized and information offered that raises the tides for all boats.
If you or anyone you know has an interest in joining a strategic planning group where contributions and questions will truly be recognized, I invite you.
The rules are simple. Massive respect to all. Lift others up at all times and leave religion and politics out of all conversations unless they are part of cases studies being shared via the group.
If you’re interested in joining, click here.
If you have questions and want to discuss possible future directions of the group, I’m open to that call as well.
