Tom, originally trained as an architect, brings a different perspective to the process of analyzing organizational problems and drafting solutions. Tom is an expert at seeing the links between the whole and the elements of an organization, ranging from the business fundamentals evidenced in the hard data, to the psychodynamics between individuals on the executive team faced with tough, long-range decisions.
His particular specialty, and the subject of his book, is leadership transition. Tom has aided corporations and nonprofit associations to seize leadership transitions as a major strategic opportunity to strengthen the organization.
Tom is a prolific writer. It is his natural impulse to extract lessons from the particulars of a client situation and express them in a form that can be shared with other CFAR consultants, clients and the greater world of business thinkers. He frequently coauthors articles and working papers with clients.
