Issues Management

" When faced with a complex human resource issue, it is often prudent to seek advice from a trustworthy outsider with experience and expertise in managing and resolving potentially dangerous situations confidentially."

Examples of assignments I’ve undertaken:


  • “High-potential” leader on a rotational assignment whose actions have crippled a once-prosperous division.  His political connections within the larger organization added complexity to the situation.
  • Midlevel executive whose intimidating behaviors had alienated a once-effective team.  Only after several talented employees left the firm was the problem brought to light.
  • Minor equity partner who had sabotaged operations and client relationships.  When confronted, he launched a barrage of lawsuits demanding exorbitant bonus awards and damages.
  • Business partner whose actions have led to a criminal fraud investigation.  He had implicated his (innocent) partner with false accusations causing great difficulty for all concerned.


"In these examples and others, I worked with the organization to assess the situation and the person in question, identify available options, and then develop a strategy and tactics to achieve a resolution to the management issue."
