Develop Business Thinking for Business Success 


Achieve greater success by becoming a better business thinker!



We have found  that the reasons people fail in business roles is from a lack of business thinking – a 'business way' of looking at things. It is a skill that can be taught and developed over time. Many entrepreneurs, business owners and employees in business roles fail to achieve business success often lack business thinking. Similarly, many family businesses have younger generations who apparently do not have a ‘business bone’ in their body which may stem from a lack of business thinking. If you are one of them, you could benefit from developing ‘business thinking’.

Business thinking is a way of constantly evaluating situations from two perspectives – how you can add value in the situation and get compensated for adding the value. Some people call it business-mindedness. If you become more business‐minded, you will do more interesting work and receive greater compensation than you currently do. 


The advice and counsel of most academics and experts keeps harking on the symptoms of business failure while failing to tackle some of the big root causes read the article 'Business Advice is Like Much of Modern Medicine' in our blog -


We have developed a one-day workshop -  a combination of talks, exercises and group discussions to help you develop business thinking.

"If your thinking is NOT business-minded, all the money, technology and outside talent cannot result in business success. "



​"A lack of business thinking is the root cause of poor business success (or failure)."
