Become a Proactive Executive

“I can not imagine having gone through this journey without Chris’ guidance, support and experience.”

Are you looking for more job satisfaction, swifter advancement and higher compensation but not sure how to reach your goals? Are you struggling with how to regain career momentum in the midst of economic, pandemic, inflationary turbulence? You’re not alone.

The simple truth is that a majority of bright, motivated, highly capable executives have the same questions.  Why?  In great part because effective career management during both good times and inevitable turbulence is not taught in school, but instead through the “school of hard knocks”. By the time you’ve learned these lessons, the mistakes have already been made, they accumulate and become unwelcome career decelerators.  You do not have to be knocked around needlessly. There is a pragmatic, actionable and proven formula for successful career formation and management that produces enhanced job satisfaction, more assured advancement, and greater life time earnings…conservatively 35% greater. This is achieved through proactive and proven career management insights, fundamentals and disciplines.

“More than ever, today’s chaotic, pandemic stricken, and technology disrupted economy requires proactive and pragmatic career management.”


The good news: 65% of an executive’s career success is attributable to controllable factors:

  • education/training
  • skills you choose to develop
  • experiences you receive
  • the opportunities you pursue
  • decisions you make
  • how you decide to position and differentiate yourself in the talent market.

Over the course of my 30-year career with Spencer Stuart, a leading global executive search firm, I formally assessed the careers of roughly 6,000 executives and had a unique opportunity to observe firsthand how successful careers are formed or derailed. These observations produced a wealth of practical insight about how the most successful and highly paid executives accelerate and optimize their careers.

Today as a senior executive coach, mentor, seminar/webinar/workshop leader, and author (THE PROACTIVE EXECUTIVE, “5 Star” rated on Amazon) I am focused on helping aspiring C-suite executives, as well as, disrupted and displaced C-suite professionals achieve success. This is accomplished through a proven set of proactive career management disciplines. To learn more, I encourage you to take a few moments and explore the resources on this website.
