What’s described here is a consulting practice involving business clients, many of them large firms, with lots of employees. How is this relevant to ReInvention UnLtd, which is about helping individuals define and implement a ‘new’ direction in their lives?
The fundamental, central theme in both the consulting practice and ReInvention UnLtd is Change, something we all find difficult, often intimidating, when it comes to changing something about ourselves.
In essence, Nick’s practice comes down to working with a wide variety of individuals in their roles as CEO’s, entrepreneurs, executives, leaders and managers, on Change…. Change in how they see themselves, their roles, their interactions with and impact on others, and the results they get. In the business world, productive change results when the client defines for him/herself the specific issue, objective or goal, and develops the right game plan.
The same is true in the business of ReInventing the next phase of life.
