Think Like A Strategy Consultant
An Online Course To Teach You The Tools, Mindsets, & Principles of Top-Tier Strategy Consultants
Here's a secret no one will tell you:
It's easier to hire former strategy consultants to run your company than promote from within
Consulting firms train people to think like CEOs. Every piece of information is tested against the question, "why does this matter for the company?"
When former consultants join companies in various industries they are playing a different game than everyone else. They understand the bigger picture and don't get stuck in their careers.
I want to teach you the tools, frameworks and secrets of strategy consulting so you can:
Escape Middle Management
Don't get lost staying busy instead of getting promoted. I want to help you learn the skills to stand out as the go-to person on the team
Influence & Persuade Senior Leaders
The highest levels of the organization need to know what they are looking at, why it matters, and what to do next. I'll help you learn this language.
Develop A Process For Doing Great Work
Companies prioritize getting things done, not your growth. I will teach you a "process" for approaching your work so that you are always getting better.
I Built This Course To Help People Learn These Skills & Apply Them Immediately
(and so you don't need to go work 80-hour weeks in the industry)
This Course Is For:
Strategy, Financial & Analytics Leaders: Who work with data are actively helping to shape the direction of their company, solving complex problems and giving executive-level presentations
Senior Executives: Who want to learn how to develop a strategy, communicate to senior leaders & Boards, and want to have more confidence in developing a vision
Freelance Consultants: Who never worked at a top consulting firm but do data-intensive or information-heavy work with clients.
Students or New Grads: Who want to improve their corporate communications and problem solving (this is not a good fit for case practice)
"This course helped me get promoted! It provides a framework to communicate complex business problems in a clear and concise manner. I wish I knew about MECE sooner."
Andrew K., Sales Strategy Consultant

Indra Nooyi On How Consulting Helped Her Become CEO of Pepsi
“I don’t think I could have gotten here without a strategy consultant background because it taught me inductive thinking. It taught me how to think of the problem in micro terms but also to zoom out and put the problem in the context of its broader environment and then zoom back in to solve the problem"
