"Steve Tobak gets it right about leadership and all of its challenges." - Mark V. Hurd, CEO of Oracle


Steve Tobak has been a trusted advisor to CEOs and business leaders for 25 years, first as a highly-successful senior executive in the technology industry and now as a Silicon Valley based strategy consultant. He is passionate about solving complex problems and achieving enduring success for his clients.

Tobak quickly identifies critical factors holding back business growth and leadership performance. He works with executives and their teams to determine necessary strategic, operational and organizational changes, then develops practical action plans that are uniquely tailored to create sustainable growth.

Engaging with leadership teams across the organization, Tobak brings insight and clarity to bear on their most strategic issues, opportunities and decisions. His methods are flexible and scalable for clients big and small across all geographies and markets. And he has a proven track record of getting it right and delivering results.

What separates Tobak from other strategic advisors and management consulting firms?

Experience, innovation and passion. As a top executive for several disruptive public companies and high-growth startups that achieved IPOs, innovation is part of his DNA. He brings that and a passion for turning complex problems into success stories to his consulting practice and, when needed, brings in experts who are just as experienced and passionate about their work as he is, not MBAs right out of school.

Truth and integrity. He doesn’t waste time or mince words, and he doesn’t use management jargon or popular fads. He never lets the status quo or organizational dysfunction get in the way of finding the truth and coming up with optimum strategies and plans for his clients. And he always tells them what they need to hear, not what they want to hear.

Measurable results with no surprises. He doesn’t just help clients solve critical problems, make smart decisions, create lasting change and achieve breakthrough results – he does it on time and on budget. And he uses a sliding scale so his services are fair and reasonable for startups, small businesses and non-profits.

Don’t just take his word for it; read some of his clients' testimonials and results stories. And when you’re ready to take yourself, your leadership team, your business or your company to the next level, book a free exploratory consultation.

When you hit a wall and things aren’t working, the quicker you figure out what’s wrong and fix it, the better. We can help you with that … much quicker and less painfully than you think.
Sooner or later every company plateaus, where what worked before isn’t working anymore. Apple, Microsoft, Starbucks … congrats, you’re in good company. We can take you through a simple process that determines exactly what needs to change.
You can have the world’s greatest product but if it’s not what customers want, or you’re not positioning it the right way through the right channels, you’re not doing it justice. The same goes for your company’s brand identity.
Everyone needs a mentor. A coach. Someone to help smooth out those rough edges. Someone who tells you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. Bill Gates had Warren Buffet. Steve Jobs had Andy Grove, among others.
Chances are you didn’t get to be the boss because of your organizational skills. We live for that stuff. We can assess your organization, your team and how you interact and provide the tweaks you need to become a smooth-running leadership team.
Markets are elastic, so if you’re not growing at least as fast as the market, you’re losing market share and that won’t end well. We can identify points of friction and misalignment that are holding you back and come up with the right plan.
If you can’t scale, you can’t grow. We can quickly assess your processes, infrastructure and other factors to help you optimize and improve your scalability.
Nobody is born knowing how to run a company. We all need perspective at times. When you need advice to help bring your dreams to reality, don’t go it alone. We are as passionate about helping you succeed as you are about your startup or small business.
Companies have a lot of moving parts, and if they’re not properly aligned and operating smoothly, the whole machine suffers. We can quickly understand your operation and come up with the necessary changes to make everything work as it should.
