C.L.I.M.B. is a systematic roadmap for business success. You know a lot about business but do not have the different elements fitting together to help you achieve business success. We help you identify those success factors and help tie them together so you can continue to learn and become more successful. We will help you identify and shed your 'baggage', and assess (and solidify) your foundational blocks before you acquire more knowledge, skills and techniques.
Comfort Zone and Confidence. Each of us has a comfort zone where we feel 'safe'. If being in business is outside your comfort zone, you need to understand and overcome it. You must assess, build and manage your self-confidence, irrespective of your experience, title or wealth.
Leverage your Strengths. You must leverage your known strengths for short-term results and long-term performance
Increase your Strength by adding those required for business success and also outnumber your weaknesses
Minimize (or eliminate) your weaknesses
Build on your successes to build momentum and confidence
It includes online content available 24x7; weekly coaching sessions with an MIT alumnus and seasoned business coaches who will address specific issues in each module on the roadmap; in-person events and retreats for 'deep dives' in particular success elements and more - see answers to 'Resources' below.
This program was conceived and put together by Ram V. Iyer, an MIT graduate with a business degree from the Sloan School of Management. Ram works with people wanting to succeed in business – he lives and breathes it. He will guide you from experiences (successes and failures), a place of knowledge (MIT education, an engineering degree and two masters degrees, including one in business), different business experiences (startups, small, midsize and Fortune100 companies) and different roles (engineering, operations, strategy, sales, executive, entrepreneurship, head cook and bottle washer) for over 30 years.
He has worked for Boeing and Lucent, and started three companies, is an renowned expert on midsize companies and hosts two podcasts on business. He has interviewed several hundred business leaders across the United States, Germany and India. His colleagues are seasoned business people who have ‘been there, done that’ in various business roles. The advisors are among the ‘Who’s Who’ in various elements for business success.
Business success requires many elements – knowledge, skills, intelligence (emotional and smarts), specific actions, networks and judgment. There was no one place where you could go and get this range – until now. Almost every group out there that offers assistance works on one aspect, but business success is not achieved with a ‘one-trick pony’ – you need a range of elements for greater business success.
You spent 4 years in college getting a basic degree and perhaps 2 years in business school getting an MBA. How long this will take depends upon where you are. Moreover, you should view this as an ongoing investment in yourself – getting better and achieving greater success every day.
A lot depends on where you are. We have designed a series of quizzes (assessments) that will give you a quick idea of where you stand and what gaps you need to fill.
We believe it will. That’s why we have been investing – and will continue to invest – our blood and sweat to build this program for anybody around the world who is seriously committed to achieving business success. We will do our part; you need to commit to doing yours. Together, we can help you achieve greater business success; and, we will help you – every day!
Every day, we learn new insights into achieving greater business success and those will become blog posts, podcasts and events soon after.
