On today’s podcast, we’re talking with Lauren Goldstein. Known as the business doctor, she’s the founder and CEO of the award winning and globally recognized boutique business strategy consulting firm Golden Key Partnership.
Lauren has been helping businesses scale more strategically for close to 10 years, and her superpower is uncovering the root cause of what is keeping businesses stuck at status quo.
She melds her medical mind with her business expertise to simply and effectively diagnose businesses and help them strategically prioritize what is needed now to get where they want to go.
She believes that there are many indicators that can show the pulse and overall health of a business. When observed and diagnosed properly, strategy has the ability to uncover threats, show patterns, and predict trajectories.
This information allows businesses to course correct, avoid pitfalls, as well as double down on what works. When done poorly it can be the kiss of death to a business, because it gives the illusion of progress and direction without actual traction.
