Dr. Don Gilman, professional speaker, trainer, and consultant, is a principal with Gilman Consulting Group, Inc.,
a global consulting firm, and author of the upcoming book, "Critical Thinking is a Contact Sport: How SpaceX and Tesla
create high-performing teams". With a Doctorate degree in Organization Change, as well as advanced degrees in Engineering
Physics, Nuclear Engineering, and Engineering Management, Don is uniquely positioned to understand the challenges organizations
face today in creating and leveraging high-performing teams in order to capture new opportunities and/or stay competitive
in the global marketplace. Don's firm made its name doing strategy work, and large-scale change-implementation projects.
A key element of Don's work has been to use a wide variety of diagnostic tools to determine the cause of problem
facing a team or an organization. Like a medical doctor, Don doesn't just treat the symptoms, as often the symptom is
masking a larger problem that is causing the disfunction and inefficiency in the first place. Don has worked with clients
of every size and sector, from automotive companies in Germany to aerospace companies in Japan.
Out of these projects
came Don's presentations, critical lessons learned from the key elements needed to successfully implement change and manage effectively in a turbulent
environment. Strategy work and trends analysis looks at the interaction among major trends, including economics, corporate
restructuring, demographics, globalization, technology, and psychographics, to describe their combined impact on organizations,
and the future of work. This unique approach, often in defiance of conventional wisdom, has proven remarkably accurate. Don
continues to educate and entertain audiences around the world. Just look at some of the most recent comments from participants. And then give us a call to check availability for your team or organization.
