Expert Consulting Services

John Berra has a proven track record of helping companies achieve their goals and overcome challenges. He provides tailored strategies and practical solutions to drive success.

Today, the challenges leaders face are more complex than they have ever been. Giants such as technological advancement and global competition make it tough for the average business to survive. 

Consulting services from Berra, LLC do not borrow your watch to tell you what time it is.  Companies don't fit into simple 9-box analysis or anything else that smacks of one size fits all.  You can count on getting reliable services that point out what to do, without costing hundreds of thousands of dollars to get a power-point deck.

Practical Books from the Voice of Experience

Turning the Giant provides deep insight into how to lead change in bureaucratic organizations.  The leadership process confronts us with many giants.  Most giants we face will never be truly slain and will always exist in some form.  Rather than trying to slay them, this book shows how it is even more valuable to turn giants to your advantage.

Turning the Giant will show today's leaders how to face the complex obstacles of today.  The technological challenges of today may be different from those faced in the past, but the principles of turning giants remain the same.  Every leader faces the giants of corporate bureaucracy, self-doubt, innovation, skepticism, competition, and success.  Each chapter in this book is devoted to lessons to learn about how to face these giants and how to turn them.
