Sean Follin is the Founder and Principal Consultant of Encounter Strategies, based in Fort Collins, Colorado but serving clients nationally, and occasionally internationally. He’s a great example of Fort Collins as a choice city - if you can choose to live anywhere, where do you choose? (It turns out - in my neighborhood!) Sean is a remarkably experienced strategic planner for his age, and worked his way up through two consulting organizations in Washington DC before making his way to Colorado.
Sean’s mentor in the craft is Chris McGoff, Founder of The Clearing, Inc. and author of the book “The Primes - How Any Group Can Solve Any Problem”. Sean’s practice is built on the foundations outlined in The Primes, and enhanced by their upfront data collection with clients, mostly professional services businesses. We delve into the fundamentals of strategic planning in this episode, which overlaps significantly with conflict resolution, and I explore with Sean his work with a non-profit based in Haiti which has assembled the most important and influential business leaders of the nation. Representing over 60% of the GDP, the hope for this group is to forge a new vision for Haiti, and lead the way to renewal of law and order and functional governance.
Sean and I were only recently introduced, but we’ve enjoyed every minute, and I’m excited to see where his significant skills might impact our LoCommunity in the months and years ahead. We went almost 3 hours in this episode, but there’s loads of great business insight, and many great stories. And, we put a nice dent in a fresh bottle of tequila, so the conversation flows freely and sometimes gets silly, so please tune in and enjoy my conversation with Sean Follin.
