My approach is to listen carefully to understand your situation. Nuances and details can only be identified through follow up questions and gathered perspectives. What are you trying to achieve? Why? What is the outcome you would like to see? How will you know if you are successful? Dialogue leads to themes, which evolves to hypothesis and concepts. Strategies and plans, with specific concrete steps, waypoints for measurement, and clear agreed upon action steps create the path to your solution,
Changing career paths in role and industry is difficult, particularly at a senior level. It takes listening, learning, mistakes, humility, and ultimately, trust in others. But it is possible, and the native skills developed around quickly seeing the lay of the land, assessing risk and opportunity, and ultimately leveraging resources to find success are highly transferable. I have had the benefit of both successes and failures. What works and what doesn't? I act with integrity and candor, and are always motivated by the potential to help others succeed.
