The Leadership Advisor

Monthly Newsletter

Few entrepreneurs or executives have time to read, absorb, and extract meaningful information from the blizzard of media that bombards us daily.  If you are like most leaders, you spend your day mired in operations, sales, meetings, turf battles, public relations, and firefighting. If you are a top executive at a Fortune 500 company, you may have the time to read, but not to work with front-line teams to see how the latest management fad works in the trenches.   And frankly, since most business writing is just plain terrible, you've probably wasted days of your life reading drivel (even HBR is not immune), wishing you could reclaim those precious hours to do something productive instead. The Leadership Advisor Monthly Newsletter can help.

Each month, I pull together global business, tech, economic, legal, and political news; book and media reviews; management science techniques and tools you can use; helpful web and community resources; peer-to-peer interviews; plus lessons learned from 20 years of helping international clients, from the Fortune 50 to solopreneurs, distilled into a pithy, easy-to-read 8-page newsletter format full of actionable content.

Value for leaders

Readers have reported that a single suggestion in an article proved invaluable to them, saving them or making them thousands of dollars, relieving them of considerable management grief, or even helping them land a six-figure client of their own.

"Curtis, really enjoyed this article. As the COO of a start-up with a relatively fresh crew of executive leadership we're constantly struggling to come to grips with the best use of our individual time. ...Reading perspectives like this is incredibly helpful in crafting a strategy for how to best utilize my own time within the organization..."

Chief Operating Officer at APX Labs

Outsource your research for pennies a day

Why is this so useful for executives? Consider it "outsourcing" of your ongoing leadership research and learning, a duty which is incumbent upon every executive, and a critical survival skill if you are a lone-wolf solopreneur. Or consider it Consulting Lite.  However you frame it, it's an invaluable time-saver, and a quick way to connect with peers, and broaden your knowledge.

Here are some topics addressed in the past:

Subscriptions are only $125 per year for 12 issues, delivered monthly via email. That's about 34 cents per day. Personally, I enjoy my NFL Sunday Ticket on TV, and freely hand over several times that much money to Starbuck's each year, but I can't say that either of those has ever saved or made me a single dime. If even one idea in The Leadership Advisor Monthly proves useful to you, it is likely to return multiples on your investment, reduce the stress that comes with the corner office, and give you tools to use year after year.  How much is that worth?
