Rewind to circa 1997. Pusateri International, a boutique, global sales consulting and training organization launched its curriculum on competing on value to its target market: C-Suite leaders of financial service firms and financial entrepreneurs. A marketplace with a focus on the high to ultra high-net-worth clients typically defined as the $1 million to $1 billion clientele. Their clients are a “who’s who” list of the top global wealth management firms.
One successful person after another was challenged through unique introspection to be their best in differentiating their organizations and distinguishing themselves or their teams. They wanted to stand out in a crowd and learn how to more effectively compete on the value they provide.
The Pusateri curriculum, at its core, focuses on a unique introspective process, not only for their client’s business or organization, but also for their personal life.
What clients also told Pusateri was that this process was more than a business development program; it was a life-changing program as well. The fire was lit for Leo Pusateri, its President and Founder of both Pusateri International and now The SabbaticalX. Listening to his valued clients and his own heart helped to crystallize this experience. There was a need to not only be your best in representing your company/business/organization, but also, to be your best in all aspects of your life, and to begin the process of living your legacy…now.
