Malcolm Avner’s clients are business owners and organization leaders who are driven to improve leadership performance and regain passion for work. Clients are empowered to achieve goals by addressing self-defeating patterns of behavior and thought.
Working 1-to-1 with Malcolm or in small group of company leaders, clients are able to more efficiently resolve business issues, increase leadership effectiveness, improve communication skills, and shift the culture of an organization.
On the personal side, clients acquire knowledge, tools and support that enhance their sense of well-being, personal relationships, and life experience.
Leaders who become Malcolm’s clients…
- believe as he does, that business has unlimited potential to elevate humanity and benefit the planet
- behave as he does, treating employees and other stakeholders with genuine caring and a win-win approach
- think as he does, committed to continuous improvement and greater wisdom
- feel as he did, disappointed and frustrated that the business isn’t more successful and work more fulfilling
Early in his careers – both as a professional athlete and a business builder – Malcolm’s focus was guided by conventional wisdom on how to achieve success: do it alone; follow the rules; and outwork the competition. He followed that guidance and, by most measures, found success in numerous endeavors. But something was missing: a sense of meaningful impact. He eventually realized that while hard work and following the rules can generate success, the success is hollow because the guidance is incomplete.
After experiencing some painful but necessary business lessons, and doing some serious soul searching, he discovered new guidance that led to impactful, meaningful work as a coach:
- Endeavors that are aligned with a higher purpose (more than just making money or impressing people) are the most rewarding – financially, emotionally, and spiritually
- Updating longstanding beliefs and behavior patterns – even the ones that seem most sacred – opens the door to better results
- Having fun at work isn’t a diversion of energy – it’s a source of energy…and creativity… and motivation!
