Shifting Path for Growth in The Age of Turbulence
John helps business leaders address one of their most perplexing questions confronting them today: How do I get my organization to understand that to be successful we must look beyond the U.S. (and Europe) and be committed to building our foreign business, especially in emerging high growth markets, to sustain our company's mid- and long-term growth? The great American shift is now underway. Is your company ready for it?

If companies want to survive and thrive, globalization is not an option: it is a necessity. Our management teams realize further how global expansion is a strategic choice and necessary for business survival.

Managing and Marketing in The Age of Turbulence
Caslione’s CHAOTICS represents a new system, a new set of strategic behaviors and guidelines designed to help business leaders and their companies navigate turbulence and uncertainty. The good news: there are opportunities, and leaders who truly lead are capitalizing at this (shifting of growth) moment in time. The audience will take away a new strategic platform and "best in strategy" practice for managing turbulence in our fragile, interconnected global economy.
