Righteous Consulting

Empowering Leaders to Prepare, Fight, and Win


In this exceptionally turbulent global business and political environment, only those who can predict the weather and prepare for the storms will thrive.

The coronavirus pandemic created an unprecedentedly chaotic new normal. Protests nationwide, deep social divisions, massive economic disruption, the 2020 election, an insurrection attempt, and partisan political gridlock have added even more tumult to a dynamic landscape.

On any given morning, the unexpected could happen and turn any business completely upside down. A new coronavirus outbreak, a new government stimulus package, a Supreme Court decision, a Cabinet Secretary stepping down, a total government shutdown, or a merely Presidential Tweet, can send shockwaves across a company worldwide. This is especially true for any company that does business with the Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs or the government more broadly at the federal, state or local level. And the 2020 Presidential Election will drive and disrupt an already stormy environment even more dramatically. Chaos is the new normal.

But it’s not only about playing defense. Every crisis also provides an opportunity. Established players are crumbling. Government funds are flying out rapidly. Philanthropy from all leaders is now expected. With expanded privatization under the Trump Administration, a growing focus on innovation and the urgent need for new technology at the federal and local level, opportunities are plentiful. If you can find them.

Righteous Consulting empowers our partners to succeed in today’s complex and dynamic political, business and media landscape. The modern business environment is much like a modern battlefield. It’s dynamic, it’s complicated, it’s dangerous. And it’s changing by the day. But it’s also filled with exceptional targets of opportunity. And to succeed in business, just as in combat, you need the best intelligence, the strongest network and the most tested leadership. That’s what the Righteous team brings. We know how to anticipate change, prepare for the future and build to win.
