We are comfortable advising in volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environments.  In the multi-national, fast-paced, combat environments of Iraq, Afghanistan, the Sahara, and the Balkans, we had the opportunity to collaborate success with some of the world's finest leaders.  Our lives in the US Army Special Forces were challenging, gratifying, and fun.  It's in this same spirit of our "Green Beret" past that we apply our passion for genuine leadership, kindness, and mission success to inspire you and your organization to summit your own epic objectives.

An azimuth is a direction on a compass.  This is our azimuth...

I advised our Nation's friends to be successful in volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environments in my past career. I was blessed with the opportunity to make a difference in a multi-national, fast-paced environment in Afghanistan, the Sahara, and the Balkans. My career as a U.S. Army Green Beret was challenging, gratifying, and fun.  After retiring from 30 years of service, I founded Azimuth Consulting Group to continue serving others and making a difference.  Then and now, I have found that focusing on a combination of "incremental progression" and "kindness" is the most effective weapon in my kit bag.  The big idea of the Azimuth Consulting Group is to take the hard-earned lessons learned from Special Operations in combat and seamlessly translate them into corporate sector leadership. With Azimuth, we conduct face-to-face and cloud-based executive and team coaching, facilitate strategic planning and employee satisfaction surveys and advise other important organizational development requirements.  Finally, we lead a wilderness-based leadership development expedition called "The Traverse." 

I have discovered that my life now as a corporate "Green Beret" is equally challenging, gratifying, and fun.
