I wrote The Executive Entrepreneur to reach readers like you for three reasons.
First, my great joy in life is helping other people succeed and being a part of that journey. I’ve been lucky enough to help improve the education of millions of young people, lead some of the most challenging national and global transformation programs being delivered right now and work with many ambitious and talented leaders. My firm belief is that with the right support, of which this book is only a part, you can succeed way beyond your current level of performance.
Second, I was frustrated at seeing so much mediocre coaching and support for leaders. Most management books these days repeat themselves around a single insight, and the coaching world is exploding with inexperienced newcomers. It can be hard to sort the wheat from the chaff. My aim is to help you cut through that by sharing my practical and first-hand experience of what works in simple, straightforward steps that anyone can follow.
Third, I wanted to share some the insights I have gathered in my journey from the safe haven of the British civil service into the commercial world of the big consultancies, where I worked in KPMG, Capgemini, and made the equivalent of partner in PA Consulting before setting up on my own. I've gained a wide range of experience, know-how and tool sets that I share with you in this book. I hope you enjoy it!
