David Tait and Glenn Yonemitsu are both management consultants who have worked in different countries, with hundreds of clients, in various industries.  Over their careers, they have noticed that some issues keep appearing - issues that impact leaders and organizations and inhibit success. 


As colleagues, regular collaborators, and former classmates, they regularly discuss managerial and leadership problems, searching for solutions to problems they have observed.  Their objective is simple: to gain a better understanding of common managerial issues, so they can help their clients improve the practice of leadership, leading to better performance.


Strategic discomfort and managerial courage are two of the issues that they have researched and written.  Both David and Glenn speak, write, and work with clients on these issues. 


If you would like to discuss your specific situation and whether strategic discomfort is right for your organization, please contact either David or Glenn.  You can send either an email by clicking on their names (below).
