Our Story

A dream plus a plan...

 

A boyhood dream to swim the English Channel has become a metaphor in life, as well as in business for our CEO Anthony McCarley. Twenty years of working as a senior executive at multiple global corporations led Anthony to dream big and, in turn, to take a huge risk by leaving the corporate world behind to focus on successful startups. 

While working on his first start-up, Anthony trained for and completed the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming (The English Channel crossing, circumnavigating Manhattan, and crossing the Catalina Channel in California). Preparing for, and accomplishing this dream, Anthony crystallized 35 years of business experience into transferable knowledge. He realized there are many common elements inherent to the process of preparing for and competing as a marathon swimmer and the process of preparing for and competing as a successful business executive. 

The goal of McCarley International is to share these common elements so that you and your business will thrive.

Since that time, Anthony established McCarley International, which has rapidly gained many clients  from Silicon Valley to  Germany and  from companies to individual executives. For each of these companies or individuals, McCarley International provides customized, focused Executive Coaching.

Driven by our Guiding Principles (see below), we strive to do as much good for as many people as possible. This concept uniquely defines McCarley International and our fundamental mission.

McCarley Guiding Principles

The Guiding Principles below are not only those values that we now hold most important, but those that helped us get to where we are today. They have been the degrees of our professional compasses, directing our short-term decisions, defining our long-term path, and always reminding us where we have been and where we are going.

 

Do as much good for as many people as possible.

Our commitment to others will be demonstrated through our choice of actions and our choice of words.

Bring value to every situation.

Be helpful all the time. Ask yourself what you can add to the situation. What can you make better?

 

Be someone who people like to do business with.

Be fair, courteous, respectful and polite.

 

Help the best idea win.

Whether the source is a teammate or a client, embrace their better idea. Don’t defend a weak position. Trust is earned. Be sure your judgment is trusted.

 

Think and act for the long-term.

Prioritize long-term success over superficial short-term gains.

 

Grow.

Strive to be better every day. Aim for continuous growth in all three components of PKE.

 

Be patient for results.

Have urgency regarding the creation of feedback loops through Planning and Actions.

 

Embrace failure.

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm. We learn more from our failures than our successes.

 

Work hard and enjoy your work.

It may be hard work, but on the whole, it must be satisfying work.

Express yourself and listen for understanding.

You may have the best idea, but no one will know unless you summon the bravery to express yourself – to speak up. You may not have the best idea, but you will not know unless you summon the courage to truly and openly listen.

 

Earn trust.

Trust is two things – competence and ethics. Trust is earned. Your “word” should not be given without thought. Manage and persuade not by an emphasis on authority, but through an emphasis on competency, influence, education, logic, and inspiration. Embrace honesty and candor as a way of life. Insist on the highest ethical standards.

 

Be a teacher and a student all the time.

Great teachers find multiple ways to reach a student. Taking different tracts and angles until the student understands. Be a student – all the time. Embrace the fact that no matter how much you know, you have much to learn. Enjoy the growth of learning. And know that everyone has something to teach. Know that even a fly can do something you can’t.

 

Focus on goals.

Be clear on the goal and follow the formula of SPACE. If the goal is important, stay on it. If the goal drops in importance, let it go.

 

When in doubt, do the right thing.

When in doubt, do the right thing. If still in doubt, be fair.
