prime chief of staff for leaders

Today's leaders need more than a support person. They need a support system. 

The brutal truth: you can be more effective

Only 9% of executives are satisfied with how they spend their time. Let's change that.

We create more effective leaders by constructing an executive office that works for you and your organization. Focus on what matters most, and leave the rest to us.

Lead with intention

Eliminate distractions so you can lead your teams with a new sense of purpose and connectedness.

MAKE BETTER DECISIONS, FASTER

Ensure you have the best information to make decisions quickly and without second-guessing.

Reclaim your time and impact

Create space in your workflow to consider the big picture, future opportunities, and top priorities.


WE'RE SERIOUS ABOUT YOUR SUCCESS

Level up your effectiveness with a Chief of Staff.

Chiefs of Staff are the ultimate protectors of executive time. They find efficient and productive ways to keep you focused on the right priorities with the support of administrative staff. With this in mind, it's easy to see how a Chief of Staff can improve your impact.

THE Outcome
THE CHALLENGE
OUR SOLUTION

Know where
time goes

You're spending too little time on strategy and, instead, putting out fires. 

Manage non-strategic work and communicate where your time is spent to key stakeholders.

Focus on

results

You focus on output over outcomes because you're too in the weeds.

Ensure completion of priorities, redirect attention, and improve office operations.

Promote communication

Communication is too top-down, infrequent, or only after major change.

Bridge team communication for better integration and knowledge sharing.

Build on strengths

You're not utilizing your strengths, leaving you feeling burned out and frustrated.

Cover leadership gaps with differing strengths that amplify your impact and mitigate blindspots. 

Concentrate on A-list priorities

You're pulled in so many directions, priorities often become neglected.

Implement a strategic framework for accountability and alignment.

Make better decisions

Decisions are made too rashly before all implications are understood or uncovered.

Ensure the right information arrives at the right point in your decision-making process.

"Executive effectiveness is not only about achieving results for the organization, it's about how  we achieve those results. If you meet your goals at the expense of your values, that is not success."
