Origins of The Passion for Excellence
Alan's passion for learning how organizations and individuals work began while growing up on his father's dairy farm. While other farms around them struggled, his father's farm consistently won awards such as "best dairy of the year.”
Alan was fascinated by how one farm could consistently achieve better results than another. The difference he learned was in his father’s mindset about farming as well as how he organized the farm to do the work. Alan carried this curiosity through college and professionally as a way to focus how to best reach his own potential and how to help others do the same.
ALAN CREATED HIS CONSULTING COMPANY OXSEEKER, INC. WITH THE CORE PURPOSE OF PROPELLING ORGANIZATIONS FROM GOOD PERFORMANCE TO WORLD-CLASS PERFORMANCE.
