What’s more, you’re great with customers, a strong communicator, and you know how to empower teams. You’ve sharpened your ability to help others become the best they can be.
What’s the next step?
For 40 years, says leadership coach Susan Colantuono, traditional career advice has focused on developing yourself and helping develop others. That approach makes sense, but it’s missing a crucial “third side” of the career development triangle: understanding strategy and financials, where an organization is headed, and your role in moving the organization forward (watch Susan’s TED talk for more).
But how can you do that without getting an executive MBA, studying accounting, or taking a stint on a strategy team?
In my experience, the best way to learn business modeling is through immersive practice sessions where, with professionals from diverse industries, you repeatedly build and deconstruct both enterprise and personal business models, all under expert guidance. Such sessions help you explore and clarify your professional identity.
That’s what we do at our Business Model You® workshops — please consider joining us! Our next open session is in Munich in May.
