  • Rob Lawrence
    Charlie has this unique ability to turn, what can be, creative chaos into a calm and concrete strategic plan. I've been following Charlie for almost six years now and can attest a proportion of my own success directly to his ideas, models, and resources."

Collaborative Webinars and Inspirational Interviews

  • Making Plans That Work

    The secret to doing your best work is mastering mid-term planning: not the project kickoff, and not its wrapup, but that slog in between, where the real work takes place. Michael Bungay Stanier and I discuss how to master the middle and make plans that actually work.

  • Sam Hunter
    I was so thrilled to find out that I could easily implement Charlie's methods to a stalled project, and finally get it under way with a clearer view of getting it finished. He looks at the entire picture - not just what need to get done, but an honest analysis of what could get in the way too. This methodology is the first I've used that makes me feel like I have a realistic grasp on what I'm doing, and what I need to get done."
