The Salontai Consulting Group provides several value-added services that complement our principal strategy, business, and leadership activities.
Gerry Salontai speaks routinely at conferences on a variety of topics. He also presents to executive teams, boards of directors, senior leadership groups, and shareholders. His easy-going, approachable style authenticates the energy, passion, experience, and insight that make his presentations so unusually effective. Focusing on strategy, business, and leadership, he provides easy-to-apply, how-to guidance that audience members can apply in their personal or business endeavors. Some of his best-known topics are:
- “The Top Trends Impacting Your Company’s Future”
- “Thinking BIG to achieve BIG”
- “Strategic Leadership”
- “Practices of Best-In-Class Companies”
- “Growing Profitably in Any Economy”
- “Lessons in Leadership – the Top 7 to Shape Your Career”
- “Balancing Life, Work, and Leadership for the Long Haul”
The length of each can be adjusted to the time available. Gerry can also modify these topics, or develop new ones, for the unique needs of specific clients and audiences.
“The top” can be lonely – at times even scary. Today’s executives must deal with unprecedented economic pressures and the need to move faster than their counterparts of the past. Any number of top executives, especially those somewhat new to the job, can benefit from a sounding board, trusted advisor, coach or mentor – someone who’s been there before. Gerry Salontai connects with emerging leaders at all levels and can relate his many decades of experience from the perspective of hands-on experience in his many leadership positions held during his career.
Today’s businesses cannot afford to have a Board of Directors that functions as a rubber stamp. There’s too much fiduciary responsibility involved. And there’s too much competition. Likewise, the Board can’t afford to spend undue amounts of time mirroring the duties of the top leadership or management team on operational topics that should be the responsibility of the CEO. Rather, the Board should function to ensure the company achieves the organization's vision and strategic direction, and maintain its policy and short and long-term financial strength, while providing sustainability of the enterprise into the future.
Gerry Salontai provides fiduciary, strategic, financial, and general board-governance expertise to Boards of Directors. His no-nonsense, transparent and direct style helps companies achieve their goals in a spirit of teamwork and collaboration among the Directors and the Management team.
