Eastern Shore Vistage

Harvey Wigder


Fulcrum Transitions

harvey-wigderI believe that business owners and executives in privately held companies on the Eastern Shore have an opportunity that corporate executives do not have.  They have the freedom to set the course of their companies and achieve the goals most meaningful to them.

My mission is to help them identify and achieve those goals.

I challenge assumptions about business practices.  I encourage the examination of leadership behavior and stoke the desire to seek improvement.

I believe that most of have internal drivers that lead to success and emotional baggage or blind spots that work against us and eventually limit what we can achieve. I help my clients get in touch with these limiting factors so they can remove them and reach a higher level of being and accomplishment.
