Kyle, like many of us, has had a winding path to where he is today. The things he learned along the way have helped form and develop his unique consulting and coaching methodology.
After selling his second company at 28 years old, Kyle wasn’t sure what to do, so he went back to school to study Psychology. Soon thereafter, his new mentor, a professor, asked him if he’d like to become a consultant in the organizational behavior space.
It was in this role that Kyle was put in a situation that would dictate his career path from then on.
New to the consulting field, Kyle figured he’d be shadowing a colleague when he flew in to meet with the CEO and other executives of a billion dollar company. It wasn’t until the night before the big meeting that he found out he and he alone would be going in.
In this moment Kyle had to make a decision: Bail, or take the risk and see how he did. It was then that the idea of Strategic Reaction was born. Instead of following his initial instinct and high-tailing it out of there, he decided to take a step back and assess what he wanted from the situation: Why not take the challenge head on and see how he fared?
It was a good thing he did because the company in question became a client for 5+ years.
Kyle ended up becoming a strategy consultant for Fortune 500 companies, but something didn’t sit right with him.
All of these businesses were focused on one thing: Profit. He’d had too many experiences where profit was rising, yet no one’s life was any different or better. Whose life would really be different based on that additional margin?
From this line of questioning came the seed for Absolute Value Creation, a policy that rejected profit for profit’s sake and instead prioritized maximizing value creation while still increasing returns.
Today Kyle teaches this strategy to organizations dedicated to maximizing value creation and benefiting the lives of their employees, their customers, the public, and themselves.
