The EMG form of leadership is both left- and right-brained. Our left brains bring real-world analytical skill, methodology (but not orthodoxy) and efficient strategic thinking. Our right brains bring the creativity, sensitivity and smarts to navigate the unknowns and the political landscape that comes with every significant business transformation project.
We help make your people, vendors and budgets better able to achieve specific and critically important objectives. As leaders we are catalyzers, enhancers and force multipliers. That means by adding just a little, you gain a lot. In consulting parlance, we are a non-leveraged model. We deliver specific leadership to a specific challenge for a specific amount of time – and that creates a force-multiplier effect to your existing resources.
Hire us because you have something vitally important you need to get done – and you want it done with minimum disruption and maximum efficiency. We focus, augment and enable your success. As people, we are as humble and ego-free as we are creative and tenacious.
When a great leader has done their job well, and the objective has been achieved, the team members look at each other and say, “We did it.” At the end of an engagement, we aim to leave behind a powerful sense of team unity and a feeling of accomplishment based on completion of a mission-critical business objective. And that’s about you, not us. That’s why we chose the most generic name we could come up with.
As individuals, EMG’s leaders all possess wisdom acquired through many years of solving complex business challenges. Most have spent time at a Big 5 firm. Many have advanced degrees. All have a long list of past successes. As a firm, we have delivered over a decade of successful engagements across a broad range of business evolution challenges and a diverse array of industries.
Once, a client interrupted us during a meeting to say: “I get the feeling you would do this for free.”
The people at EMG have all decided to walk away from the traditional consulting firms because we do not want to sit behind a desk selling work that others execute. We all love solving problems, leading and seeing projects through until the end too much to be mere observers.
