Having a trusted sounding board is considered to be a central shaper of extraordinary CEO careers.
Dan provides this subtle, yet high value service on an ongoing basis to a select group of CEOs.
Dan’s CEO advisory offering has been developed as a natural extension of the relationships he has built with CEOs worldwide, all of whom share the desire to build great companies.
His advisory approach is not a static, passive process, bound to hourly sessions – rather, it takes a free form that fits within a CEO’s demanding schedule and allows for maximum access when a client needs it most.
Dan works with CEOs who have a clearly defined need, a keen desire to learn and who will take the primary role in shaping the development work they do with him.
Dan believes CEOs need to have four fundamental competencies:
These competencies cut across all aspects of the CEO mandate, including: crafting strategy; executing strategy: shaping ethics; building a culture; developing emerging leadership capabilities; defining organisational purpose; invigorating an organisation; restructuring the organisation, setting high standards; overcoming obstacles; attracting talent, and self-efficacy.
Dan’s CEO engagement model is differentiated from typical advisory arrangements. In order to maximise value for his advisory clients, Dan has created an engagement model that allows for always-on advice that can take multiple forms in accordance with each client’s particular needs. This engagement can include:
In-person, formal planned sessions
Dan prefers long-term relationships that have fixed monthly fee, retainer-type arrangements that are activated only when his services are used. This provides his CEO clients with an at-the-ready resource without the overhead burden brought about by typical inflexible retainer relationships.
