Fix the Right Problems

Strategy execution and change are difficult, because people are stuck in the sludge of old ways of working. Your people have built work habits that belong to the past, while your agenda is planted firmly in the future –we help you bridge those worlds.

We start from a different problem: We diagnose and disrupt legacy behavioural systems to accelerate Strategy Execution. Change doesn’t occur in a vacuum, it occurs amidst day-to-day expectations, routines, and assumptions –all of which are very strong, and many of which are out-of-date and unproductive. You can ignore these patterns, at your peril, or you can harness them to unleash new ways of working.

This is where we work. Organizations have complex social environments that protect the status quo. We address the social web of routines, behavioural norms, and ways of working that conspire to kill change and strategy execution; we find actionable ways for your people to bring your vision to life, within the realities of their day-to-day.

What We Offer

Our name, “Like Mind Advisory,” serves three purposes:

It Is A Warning

Organizations domesticate people, they build ways of thinking that are far too alike in their people . . . leaders should be cautious about how “like minded” their people are

It Is An Offer

We work with people of a “like mind” to us . . . people who want to change the world, and are not satisfied with how things have been done in this space

It Is A Promise

We “like minds” and we’ll make you think differently about how to get great performance

About Us

Founding Philosophy:

Like Minds Advisory was established to provide a unique perspective on strategy execution. We believe strategy execution and leadership are a contact sport; we build learning into how work gets done, using the leverage points that exist in your people’s lives to affect change quickly, and at pace.

Our Approach:

Like Minds Advisory was founded to offer a different lens on strategy execution. There is a rich interplay between strategy, execution, and people; most people oversimplify these interactions, and fail to execute anything new. Integrating learning into everyday work, we leverage key points in your team’s lives to drive rapid and impactful change. Drawing from two decades of global, award-winning experience, we operate from a distinct vantage point and adhere to unique guidelines.

Client Commitment:

We take on a limited number of clients, because quality comes first. We limit our clientele to be true partners, catalysts, and conscience, dedicated to making your vision come to life.
