05: Making No Regrets Decisions with Mike Figliuolo

Rethink Sales Podcast

Back in March when the pandemic struck, most of us couldn’t imagine how it would impact a holiday season eight months in the future. Turns out, we weren't asking the right questions about how public health, policy, politics, and technology would affect our lives beyond the initial lockdowns. And here we are. When faced with a problem to solve or a decision to make, do you ask the right questions? Often, business leaders will analyze trends that are directly related to their companies and industries, but neglect to consider how the intersection of political, environmental, or cultural trends can create challenges as well as opportunities. It begins by asking the right questions. Connect with us on LinkedIn!

29. Mike Figliuolo on running a successful training firm

Unleashed - How to Thrive as an Independent Professional

Our guest today is Mike Figliuolo, a McKinsey alum and West Point graduate. Mike is the founder and Managing Director of ThoughtLeadersLLC, which provides training to corporations that is inspired by the types of internal training that consultants receive at McKinsey and other top firms. He is also the author of three books One Piece of Paper: The Simple Approach to Powerful, Personal Leadership  The Elegant Pitch: Create a Compelling Recommendation, Build Broad Support, and Get it Approved Lead Inside the Box: How Smart Leaders Guide Their Teams to Exceptional Results, which Mike co-authored with Victor Prince. I heard about Mike’s firm from several Umbrex members, who have helped deliver some training sessions for Mike, and I recognized his name because Mike was the very first person to interview me when I applied to McKinsey, seventeen years ago.  So it was nice to reconnect. In this episode, Mike gives an overview of his most popular courses and talks through lessons learned he has had in building a training firm. Lesson 1 – somewhat counterintuitive - don’t customize your training! I like the metaphor he uses to explain why: you need to be at the baseline or at the net. Mike shares the business model of how the fees get split four ways each time a session is delivered: one share for the person who wrote the course; one share for the person who sold that particular session; one person who delivered the session; and one share for the house. Do take a look at his firm’s website: thought leaders llc.com Mike is happy to write a check to consultants who help him develop new business, so if know some clients that could benefit from his firm’s services, he’d love to hear from you.
