Did you know that only 1 in 10 corporate professionals understand the strategy of their organization? This also leads to many leaders facing challenges when trying to secure funding for their respective ideas and projects. Unfortunately, leaders are getting to the table, but are not closing the deal. If an individual does not understand the strategy of the organization that they spend 40 – 60 hours per week, it is hard to expect employees to understand how their work ties to the bottom line, how to increase their influence in the organization, and finally how the secure funding for their respective ideas.
After noticing this trend for many years during my fifteen year career at a Fortune 50 company and a rising executive, I decided to address this problem head on by launching Pitch University for Corporate professionals. When employees do not understand how to secure funding for their ideas, the impact includes inefficient pitching, decreased funding for projects, and decreased business growth and performance.
When attending networking events and you ask individuals about their profession, most individuals provide a job title. This is actually a huge mistake when answering the question. In fact, every corporate leader has a unique value proposition, but many of us have not taken the time to craft our unique value proposition either due to lack of perceived time or being unaware of how critical it is for both short-term and long-term career success as a corporate leader.
