Konrad is an associate of Strategy Arts as well as the founder and principal of Blue Summit Strategy. He is a consultant, facilitator, coach and trainer in organizational visioning, strategic planning, change management and leadership development. Konrad has been pioneering the use of graphic facilitation, visual mapping, collaborative group process and leadership development in strategic planning. His core work is designing and facilitating processes that develop visions and strategies that are inspiring, clear and grounded in action.
Konrad has 21 years of experience consulting large global corporations in strategy and leadership development. He has helped many diverse organizations develop innovative business strategies and change programs. For example, recent projects have doubled the size of a business unit through an integrated, customer-focused vision; a new values-based culture has driven fast growth for a technology company; and a culture transformation in strategic management resulted from bottom-up involvement of all employees.
Before founding Blue Summit Strategy in 2000, Konrad was a partner at Strategic Decisions Group, a $70 million strategy consulting firm with an unusual business model of combining highly analytical decision analysis tools along with group process and facilitation methods. Revolutionary new biotechnology products; a highly successful four-company joint venture to develop a nationwide navigation and communication system; and integrated therapeutic area strategies in a pharmaceutical company all resulted from Konrad’s vision and efforts.
Konrad also coaches individuals and groups to be more effective team members and transformational leaders. He teaches strategic visioning, strategy mapping, team building & dynamics, and personality frameworks such as the Enneagram and MBTI. In addition, he works with organizations to build sustainability into how they do business.
Konrad holds an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and a BA in Biology & Psychology (cum laude) from Harvard University. He loves outdoor sports of all kinds, travel, yoga and studying Eastern philosophy and Western psychology. He makes his home in Marin County, California.
