The hardest step for an executive to take is One Step Back — far enough from your business as it is to see it As It Could Be.

I specialize in two areas:

  • Assisting executives and their teams to effectively lead significant business shifts involving growth, productivity improvement, restructuring and the challenges of mobilizing commitment in turbulent times.
  • Advising small business owners as they explore their exit strategies for leaving their business with pride, profit and a legacy.

In all cases, my emphasis is to…

  • Create strategy alignment
  • Strengthen execution discipline and
  • Build enduring cultures and leadership values.


I was extensively involved for over 10 years consulting on the highly regarded change efforts of Jack Welch in the many GE businesses and also applying those successful practices to dozens of companies in the US and internationally. In addition to this ‘big, product-based company’ experience, I worked with small and mid-size growth and emerging companies.  Finally, I understand the unique environment of professional services companies as I also founded, grew and successfully sold an internationally recognized consulting firm.


I work exclusively with a small number of executives and their companies whose leaders are forward thinking, values driven, and always looking to learn.

Please feel free to contact me if you’d like to discuss how to drive your company or your exit plans forward.



I am grateful and fortunate to have worked with Pamela while a senior leader at GE and later running a small private equity-owned company.  Pam helped me navigate through difficult organizational changes.  She has the rare ability to help leaders both develop strategy and define the implementation tactics and resources that enable success.

Pamela has worked with me for over 20 years in several emerging companies. As our executive teams continuously evolve, she helps me build the trust, teamwork, leadership and strategic thinking we need to move through important company transitions and decisions. I can think out loud with her and count on her experience and wisdom … and candor!
