Organization & Success

Organizational success and effective functioning both depend not only on the excellence with which the team’s individuals perform their duties, but, equally importantly, upon the principles applied in organizing the operation.

These are two different issues: a) effective function and, b) business success and prosperity.

At first glance, executives, seeing these two issues are often related, assume they are one and the same or otherwise depend on each other. Not so. One can have effective function without business success and prosperity, and visa versa.

Thus the following maxim: to ensure the continuing success and prosperity of any business undertaking, it must organize and align its functions correctly so it operates most effectively and toward optimum outcomes.

The organizational structures of most American corporations violate this maxim. Their organizational structures only express a vertical communication line of control and power: their structures do not express the flow of completed actions or inputs (useful or valuable outcomes produced) that must occur and pass between the functions of the operation if an enterprise is to have continuing success.

Look at your company’s organizational chart — does it only state the reporting relationships and vertical flow of power and authority ? Does it define the product produced by each department that is valuable to the next? Does it define the flow of these subsidiary valuable products through the organization toward the accomplishment of the enterprise’s ideal circumstance of an on-going viable exchange of something of value with its public ?

If it fails to show the myriad subsidiary products flowing as a sequence from one departmental function to the next for use or fuller processing toward the completed final, valuable, exchangeable, end product or service; you are missing vast opportunities and could be headed for disaster.

Ability Consultants, Inc., uses an innovative approach to enterprise organization. Firstly, we do not just rewrite the chart; we introduce the natural law of the production cycle to management. Second, we train management on the explicit sequence of basic abilities that must be naturally followed and fulfilled by any individual or organization hoping to succeed in any endeavor or production cycle.

When an organization’s operation is properly based on this natural cycle, and all functions are aligned to pursuing its correct ideal circumstance, it will prosper. Where there are violations of this, it will have difficulty . . . and be wondering why.


Motivation is a much misunderstood subject.

Motivation is the key to all accomplishment. This is true for all the endeavors we engage in, whether as individuals, elite athletes or as business enterprises or in other team endeavors.

It is also an issue of concern to executives in the effort to achieve corporate performance.

One hears of corporate executives looking to motivate their people, or of “motivational speakers” or seminars being used to attempt to motivate the individual. One even hears it said that such things as money or fear are great motivators.

But these and other notions that depend on some agency outside of the individual in need of “motivation” are erroneous. Individuals are actually not motivated by factors or agencies outside of themselves.

The motivation, the energy and driving force, that is the stuff of accomplishment and excellence is native to the individual and comes from within the individual himself.

We each innately know this.

The key to being blessed with a highly motivated team of associates is to recognize this, and to then know how to unleash and focus the powers and ability to perform that is inherent in each of the individuals of one’s team. And it is particularly true for elite athletes and other individuals who wish to excel.

And the secret of this is to know what the essence of the motive power is that drives each individual’s intent to perform, produce, and have a passion for excellence.

And what is this essential element of life and career motivation? It is the individual’s wants; the specific wants of the individual that underlie all his dreams, all his aspirations, and all his actions.

The value of knowing and applying this in the contemporary corporate setting is, that to rekindle the wants of an individual is to rekindle his life. It has even been said that it is so powerful an action that it can almost raise the dead.

The scenario corporate America faces today, in too many places, is one wherein the individual wants of its team members have been abused, opposed, suppressed. The individual had been diverted away from a passionate pursuit of his purpose; blocked, stopped and invalidated, the wants that should be sparking the motive power of the individual are submerged and lost sight of. And with that submerging went the individual’s motivation, power, driving force — and, of course his performance.

Part of that unwanted scenario are the myriad practices indulged by management and amongst team members themselves (and in life in general) that heap abuse upon the individual’s wants, and thus his motivation.

At Ability Consultants, Inc. we have the answer to this. Our Motivation Restoration Handling™ is important because it restores not only the drive and passion for performance in individuals, but it aligns these wants and drive to perform with those of the team and the corporation. And this achieves stellar results for the bottom line of clients who use it.

Actualizing The Vision

Many dream big and have huge ambition: but few accomplish all they envision.

A magic few get exactly what they envision. Nikola Tesla, the genius who gave us the benefits of modern electricity with his discovery of how to transport and harness alternating current; and who is the true inventor of radio, having demonstrated a radio controlled model submarine to the U.S Navy in a flooded Madison Square Garden in New York City some eight years before Marconi managed to send a few dots and dashes through the air, was famed for having the ability to create a spiritual-mental, three-dimensional, holographic working model of his discoveries and being able to test and refine these models till they were perfected before he constructed them in the real universe.

At Ability Consultants, Inc. we don’t claim that we will deliver this kind of phenomenal ability on one of our basic courses, or in five or ten hours of private counseling — but it is an ability you will acquire with the application of sufficient of the ability enhancing exercises and processes we have available.

In the meantime, executives, elite athletes and others who are finding it slow going or unnecessarily hard to accomplish their true wants, objectives, or dreams and aspirations, will benefit from the “Set Ups for Success”™ technology and processes employed by us.

The accomplishment of one’s dreams and visions requires the application of a precise set of skills and abilities. They are a specific set of abilities and actions that must be applied exactly and in the correct sequence. Too often, ambitious individuals fail to achieve what they intend; and fail to fulfill their wants, dreams and visions because they lack this knowledge and do not apply correctly the needed technology.

At Ability Consultants, Inc., we have delineated the exactitude of this correct set-up, and have the technology that clients can learn and apply in order to guarantee success.

It is called The Set-ups for Success™ Course, and generally takes only twenty or so hours for a client to complete and learn how to succeed brilliantly at accomplishing whatever he or she intends.

Success Profiles

Many moons ago a wise man gave the advice to his fellows to “Know Thyself.”

It is very good advice — but the immediate question that follows, then, is: in what way, and toward what end?

And these are important questions.

It is currently a vogue in corporate America to employ “Personality Type Profiling” of executives and key managers in order to “ensure the right pegs go into the right holes.”

At Ability Consultants, Inc., we know there is a more workable approach available. We have found the notion that one is pre-ordained as to “personality type” or that one cannot change or add to one’s competencies or ability levels is erroneous.

We also disagree with the notion that the “experts” know more about you than you do. And we don’t like the idea of people being pigeon-holed or of people being treated as cogs in a machine. We don’t view people as though they are some sort of computer chip or some other kind of “component.”

As the new president of the American Psychological Association, Dr. Martin E.P. Seligman, was reported as saying in The New York Times on 28 April 1998:
“Psychology has essentially been negative for 100 years. Theories have generally focused on damage, as have techniques for intervention. Social science has believed negative things were authentic and strengths were coping mechanisms. But what I see in my own children are pure, unadulterated strengths that are not compensations for trauma, but intrinsic. I find myself beginning to believe psychology needs to ask, what are the virtues? We need to delineate them, assess them, ask causal questions. What are the interactions? How does it grow? Let’s talk of growth and questions of strength.”

We practitioners of Knowledgism™ at Ability Consultants, Inc., heartily agree. Indeed, this has been our focus and practice for more than 30 years. We can show that an individual’s abilities, capacities, interests, wants, and style of interface with his or her fellows can all be upgraded, enhanced, added to, made more of, improved, and changed to be more in line with each individual’s own desires, dreams and visions.

Hence our approach to individual analysis is that of Success Profiling™; not typing, labeling, and pigeon-holing. Our approach is that you have an innate sense of what you are truly capable of, and how well you are doing as compared to that measure.

Ability Consultants, Inc., employs two proprietary analyses with the individual. One is the Life Analysis, which profiles how the individual has set him or herself up for the game of life; and the other is the Skills Analysis, which profiles how ably the individual has developed his or her talents to play the game.

But the critical thing that sets our approach to client testing apart from other practitioners, and as being of more benefit to clients, is that our Success Profiling™ does not measure or compare the client to some imagined “norm” or theorized classification system in which “all humans fit.”

The Ability Consultants, Inc., Success Profile™ measures the client’s perception of his or her own life-setup and the client’s own measure of his or her level of success, attainment, and skills levels as compared to the client’s own true potential and standard of his or her ideal.

The importance of this is that the individual can then knowingly address the areas of his or her life-setup, and skills and abilities, that can be upgraded, enhanced, added to, made more of, improved, and changed to be more in line with the individual’s own desires, dreams and visions.

As the wisest man I ever heard said to a boy once: “You can be whatever you choose to be son, it only takes that you know what you want, that you pursue it, and that you set yourself up for it and develop the skills necessary for its attainment.”

The Ability Consultants, Inc., Success Profiling™ and Life Setups Services™ reveals and helps accomplish for the client what the client truly wants and feels he or she should be attaining.


The Ability Consultants, Inc. Success Profile™ comprises the analysis of three fundamental aspects of your existence:

The Life Analysis — this analyses how you have set yourself up in life: how you have created your beingness.

The Skills Analysis — this analyses how you have created and developed your various key skills and ability levels: the ability and skill with which you do what you do.

The Financial Fitness Analysis — this analyses your ability to have: your acceptance level, your ability to enjoy, use, have, own the fruits of your actions.

Thus the Success Profile™ gives you an accurate picture of your state of Being, ability to Do, and willingness and capacity to Have.

It is these three factors that are the essential keys to true success

One could also view them as being profiles of how big and powerful you are willing to be, how big are your wants, dreams and visions versus your true potential; how skilled and able are you to implement and attain your dreams and visions; and to what extent are you letting yourself be successful and attain and have your wants, dreams and visions.

With these factors understood, one can knowingly address the correct areas in need of improvement, enhancement, empowering, or change.


We each innately know we can do better; that we can improve. But the notion that one can actually address specific critical abilities and faculties and make them more available, improve them, upgrade them, and make them more powerful; or that one can change one’s style of interface with others to make it more in line with one’s dreams and aspirations, is new.

This is the importance of the SUCCESS PROFILE™. It enables one to correctly define the specific areas in need of change or that one wishes to upgrade and improve, and it leads to a course of action that makes sense for the individual.

Knowing your profile for the six aspects on each of the Life, Skills, and Financial Fitness Analyses enables you to apply the correct processes needed to upgrade your success potential and quality of accomplishments.

Keynote Speaking & Group Presentations

There is more to addressing a group than being entertaining or “motivational”.

Real value should be imparted.

For example: what point of enlightenment or regained ability or rekindled dreams and aspirations should be made occur? What is the long-lasting, hopefully life-changing, benefit to be achieved?

This is the kind of value we at Ability Consultants, Inc., see as being important to deliver with our group presentations.

Because of this, none of our presentations are generic, cookie-cutter, razzmatazz, hyper-ventilating pitches that are long on “personality” but short on real substance. We take the time to ascertain what it is you want to precisely achieve or impart to your audience, and we research and work with you to get it exactly right so you get the results you want.

And we can be funny too, outrageously funny we are told, in a dry, Australian kind of way. After all, the good Aussie attitude is: “Life is supposed to be enjoyed, Mate!” But the humor has an explicit purpose; it is a key to the easy conveyance of your main message. It is the carrier-wave upon which the benefits you wish to impart are transmitted.

Thus, no matter the subject, no matter the industry specialty or area of activity of your group, we at Ability Consultants, Inc., deliver a memorable, impactfull, highly entertaining, but beneficial presentation.

Roger E. Boswarva and/or Virginia Koenig will work with you in this regard.
