Hear featured Leading Coach was Leading Coaches’ Academy Faculty Member Gerhard Schwandt, an efficiency expert who coaches about efficiency in the context of energy. He engaged us in a conversation about how to think about our work flow in ways that allow us to create customized systems for how we work. What are the hats you wear in your work? What must be done? What shouldn’t be done? What is only desirable and therefore not aligned with your criteria for the well being of your business? As a former 5-star executive chef, Gerhard earned the Michelin Star within his first 2 years in the US. He then started working for a promotions company and broke every sales record before buying the company and expanding it. While doing that, he started an import business and expanded that before selling both companies and then working as the executive chef on a cruise line for several years. He’s also traveled around the world as a speaker and consultant before starting his Efficiency Management Systems company in 2002 with his business partner in Germany. There’s no way he could have done all of that without wisdom and expertise in the area of efficiency and energy flows!
