We're CGS and we build futures.

 

We build them with all sorts of people

at all ages and stages of their careers,

some working, some not working,

some forced not to work.

 

We meet first a bundle of emotions

which becomes in conversation

a real and uniquely talented person

with whom we work to build futures

in all shapes and sizes.

 

The common factor is that each future

is the right one for the client

because s/he's the one making

the choices which build them.

    CGS exists to address two questions: How should I think about the rest of my career? and What should I do about it?  Click here to see how we set about finding the answers.

     

  • CGS offers a completely personal, tailored, open-ended outplacement to senior executives and professionals; also mentoring services to CEOs and senior leaders. 

  • In our recent client introductions we have noticed a common theme in the decline in traditional outplacement, meeting of people at the point of departure from a firm, and an increase in the number of people, often younger people, "wandering and wondering" through their careers in a place with which they have for whatever reason fallen out of love. We draw no conclusion, merely note the phenomenon - and enjoy the privilege of working with them!

Any time you get too fixated on economic statistics, just recall Robert Kennedy:

Our Gross National Product counts air pollution and cigarette advertising, and ambulances to clear our highways of carnage.  It counts special locks for our doors and the jails for the people who break them.  It counts the destruction of the redwood and the loss of our natural wonder in chaotic sprawl.  It counts napalm and counts nuclear warheads and armored cars for the police to fight the riots in our cities.  It counts Whitman's rifle and Speck's knife, and the television programs which glorify violence in order to sell toys to our children. 

Yet the gross national product does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education or the joy of their play.  It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages, the intelligence of our public debate or the integrity of our public officials.  It measures neither our wit nor our courage, neither our wisdom nor our learning, neither our compassion nor our devotion to our country, it measures everything in short, except that which makes life worthwhile.
