Clifton/Strength Finders: Strategic Thinking
Leaders with great strategic thinking strengths are the people who keep us all focused on what could be. They are constantly absorbing and analyzing information and helping the team make better decision. People with this strength continually stretch our thinking for the future.
As a CEO/Founder of your Company, I think you have two primary responsibilities:
- Cast and continually communicate your VISION for your Company.
- Hire the best people on planet Earth to help you achieve your Vision.
I may be one of the best people on this planet to help you realize that vision!
I became an entrepreneur and built my first company based on my sales talent. At age 19 I was the top salesman in the United States for a company that had 44 offices. A year later I was the top sales manager for the same company. Several years later still in my early 20’s, I began selling houses and sold 17 houses my first month. I didn’t know that was nearly impossible. Sometimes not knowing how difficult things are can be a blessing. I started my first Company at age 26 and grew to 22 locations within a couple of years without outside capital or debt. Since that first Company, I’ve founded a dozen companies, helped over half of the Fortune 500 and countless entrepreneurs. My passion is Creating Exceptional Customer Experiences or what I call CX to the power of two or CX2.
My mission is to help others, help others. Personally, I support St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and several Ministries. Professionally, I help entrepreneurs sell more & service better. The results from true Customer Centricity are literally astonishing and for most Companies that most significant improvement you can implement.
