"70% of strategic failures come from poor execution of leadership… it’s rarely for lack of smarts or vision"
"Most CEOs consider themselves and their organizations to be executing change poorly"
"Strategy execution is 5% technical, 95% people-related"
Helping executives to be leaders,
not to do leadership
How senior executives skillfully relate determines management’s ability to execute — more than strategy, resources or organization. It takes more than hiring exceptional individuals to yield an exceptional management team.
Individuals and teams are multi-faceted, like diamonds, and more comfortable showing their polished facets, which then shrouds nuanced and valuable features. Revealing what’s underlying gives management clarity on how to work together as one brilliant gem of significantly greater value.
Founder and CEO of Abella Consulting, Molly Tschang guides senior leaders to work as one cohesive unit, committed to each other’s success as much as their own. She coaches senior leaders to collaborate more skillfully by developing self-awareness, team-awareness and empathetic understanding. Abella clients benefit from real management team alignment and capitalize on their executive talent. Results are compelling: improved profitability, stronger executive performance and empowered workforce.
Working with Molly is not going through the motions to check boxes, hold hands or sing Kumbaya. Her approach enlightens management to create shared purpose and to interdependently achieve business imperatives, markedly upgrading decision-making and execution.

The Amazing Abella
“In Catalan, abella means ‘bee’, which resonates with me on multiple levels. As pollinators of the planet, bees are amazing creatures and underpin the sustenance of life on Earth. Their relationship with plants, similar to leaders and their talent, is one of mutual benefit and enhancement. Ceaseless in productivity, bees work together effectively and symbolize teamwork.
Bees’ honey is associated with gold in many myths and legends, as in a reward achieved after arduous undertaking, i.e., with hard work, we earn the gold. Certainly organizations celebrate this as well.
Lastly, bees are enduring – the oldest bee fossil is 100 million years old! Sustainability is fundamental to ongoing success.”
