Going back to College


Roberta Matuson receiving degree from Alan Weiss, Ph.D.

You are never too old to learn! Last week, I graduated from the Million Dollar Consulting College ® presented by  Alan Weiss. Ph.D.  Only a handful of people are selected for this very prestigious program. The week was spent learning, interacting and practicing consulting techniques with other world-class consultants.

Here are just a few of the many learning points I took away from this experience:

  1. Innovation is the key to improving organizations that are interested in raising the bar.
  2. In this economy, it is not enough to be good. You must excel to compete.
  3. If you are not failing, you are not trying.
  4. To continuously improve, we must all take chances.
  5. It is much easier to place a band-aid on a problem than it is to implement preventative measures. That's why so many initiatives fail to fix the true problems.
Over the next several months, I will be contacting former clients to share what I've learned during this incredible week. I will also be working on new product offerings that will dramatically improve the condition of my clients. Feel free to reach out to me as well.

Graduating from college again has given me a new zest for learning. If you have been putting off plans to increase your learning, I would encourage you to move forward in 2009. The timing will never be perfect, but as Alan Weiss says, "We are after success, not perfection."
