Communication Isn’t the Problem, It’s the Opportunity

Since 1984 I’ve had the privilege of working with over 3,000 growing businesses, government agencies, and non-profit organizations — helping them map their strategies, develop their leaders, and build their cultures. These experiences have convinced me that the most overlooked opportunity in every organization is improving communication.

That’s where I come in. We start by assessing the current situation to ensure that we understand the real problem and don’t chase a solution that doesn’t change anything. Then we work together to map a path for creating the desired results outcome in a way that makes it stick long after I am gone.

When you know you need an outside perspective, are tired of not getting all the voices into the conversation, and don’t want to see your next initiative achieve less than you had hoped, let’s talk.

  • Michael helped me clarify our strategic direction and priorities, increasing employee engagement and driving 5% savings with our annual goods and services spend. His customized tools and exercises to get us on the right track—I have a solid sustainable strategic plan, employee engagement is up at 85%, and cost savings have exceeded our goals. What I appreciate most about working with Michael is his ability to cut through the predictable politics of a project, keep everyone happy (and laughing) and deliver the expected results and then some.

  • Our staff is made up of people who tell stories for a living. So choosing someone come in to lead us through an entire day of how to tell stories better was a bit daunting. I shouldn't have worried. Michael Hudson hit it out of the park. He helped our ENTIRE staff focus on our story, and how to tell it, and even took it a step further — a collective lightbulb went off as we realized we were missing a key component of how to talk to our audience, our tribe, and to really connect with them. Michael's a quick study and has an amazing talent of coming up with fresh ideas even in a room full of industry veterans.
