For the past 20 years, Doug Sundheim has helped leaders from Fortune 500 companies to small entrepreneurial firms get out of their comfort zones and take smart risks. In the process, he's developed a set of practical tools for action that anyone can use to get out of the gates when things feel risky.
Doug has worked with leaders and teams from Morgan Stanley, Barclay's, Bertelsmann, Citigroup, Harvard Management Company, HSBC Bank USA, Procter and Gamble, and The University of Chicago. His approch is grounded in both research-based leadership practices and firing-line experiences for what really works in business.
Here's what Joanna Rupp, Chief Operating Officer of the Univeristy of Chicago Office of Investments had to say about Doug's approach:
"The risk taking tools that Doug Sundheim shares are easy to understand and use in a real world context. I consider myself an intelligent risk taker and this framework has helped me and my team get even better."
Prior to his team and leader consulting work Doug worked for ad agencies and an Internet strategy consulting firm. He also started a 100-person catering company in his early twenties.
