The Management Sherpa™

Helping people, organizations, and communities reach summits

Mountain Climber

When it's time to overcome the hills in your business, we navigate you towards the summit.

“Guides tell someone what mountain to climb. Sherpas, on the other hand, let the climber pick the mountain to be climbed, then spend most of their time laying the ropes in advance so the climber can move a little faster. More importantly, Sherpas tell climbers what they don’t need to take in order to make the summit.” — Bob Downs, Dream Big

When you are facing challenges in your business, The Management Sherpa™ plans the approach to guide you to success.

We’ve been there, figuratively and literally, facing hills and challenges, and re-strategizing ways to deliver success. Leaders recognize that sometimes it takes a new lens on the business, a paradigm shift for tackling problems, to “yard up” and navigate those hills and deliver results.

A MANAGEMENT SHERPA – A business native known to GUIDE and help CARRY the load for clients preparing for an ambitious journey.

Developing
Organizational Capability

Organizational capability is a company’s ability to identify strategy, manage resources, develop tools and design business processes to effectively equip its people towards delivering results and gaining an advantage over competitors. A company’s organizational capability must be unique and focus on its ability to delight and serve customers. We assist organizations in shaping this strategy and journey.

Enhancing
Execution Capability

Strategy is only as good as an organization’s ability to execute it. Organizations must effectively prioritize goals and manage the day-to-day churn in order to deliver business results. Disciplined execution drives predictable and sustainable outcomes. Clarity, priorities, measurement, scorecards and agility are key. We assist organizations in designing processes to effectively execute “the path" to the summit.

"Vic was such a pleasure to work with and proved to be the perfect consultant for this project! From the beginning, he shared a wealth of knowledge that multiplied the quality of the project deliverables and my understanding of performance management. Vic was very considerate of our organization's needs, always making sure there was a clarity of focus on how tasks were being accomplished while also acknowledging all of our senior leadership's feedback. He was also punctual and attentive at every meeting, with strong communication throughout the project. The speed of analysis and insight with which Vic was able to come up with a solution to our performance management needs made him invaluable. Something that would've taken me at least 6 months to figure out and create on my own was flawlessly executed with his assistance in 2 months. Even before the project was over, I was able to share updates with my team and align the final deliverables with other parts of our organization's strategic plan in a way that highly impressed senior leadership.

I learn from sharing with and listening to Vic. He creates a well-rounded coaching environment where sometimes the teacher can also be the student. Vic is not shy about turning challenges into opportunities or stepping back to absorb a new lesson into his true self.
