Clarity of purpose. The Lighthouse 360° approach gives you unparalleled clarity around purpose and value so that both are actually realized.

A framework for growth. The key output is a framework and a compass for growing to the next level, not simply a plan.

Culture as competitive advantage. Clients gain a cultural sense of the business going beyond ‘what we sell’ to ‘who we are.’

Adaptability ongoing. The 360° approach yields Lighthouse clients advantage that holds no matter the environment.

A Rare and Uniquely Effective Advisor

Uniquely, a lighthouse sheds light in all directions. It helps you see openings and opportunities, not just threats. And it’s expansive, both wide and deep.

Lighthouse Consulting is built to do the same.

Larry Robertson’s distinct background makes the 360° view clients gain possible. Backed by decades of experience as an innovator, advisor, investor, researcher, and award-winning author, three assets for clients stand out:

  • a true strategic advisor
  • a unique breadth of knowledge
  • and a collective and cultural emphasis

a true strategic advisor


Unlike personal leadership coaches focused only on the individual, or management consultants emphasizing just the business, Larry brings a holistic perspective to every client and every project. Working across a wide expanse of sectors and organizations, his expertise is growth: how to anticipate it, manage it, and maximize it.

rare breadth of knowledge


The strategic view Larry offers clients is distinct because it looks at strategy not from a single direction, but from 3 areas vital to ongoing success: entrepreneurship, creativity, and leadership. It’s these skills in combination that make leaders and their teams innovative, adaptable, and resilient – and no one knows their interrelationship better than Larry Robertson.

a collective, cultural focus


While Larry works directly with senior leaders, he emphasizes the connections between leaders, their teams, and the culture of the organization. Clients come to know themselves in context, and in the process, gain clarity and consistency in performance, no matter the environment.

“He’s a big consulting brain without all the worthless baggage.”

Mike Hubbard, Cofounder, Capstone Partners

Praise for Larry’s award-winning books …


A Deliberate Pause is an eye-opening read. It offers keen insights for veteran and rookie entrepreneurs alike. It’s the kind of resource you’ll return to time and again, for it offers a smart and useful guide for anyone who wants to think different and turn those thoughts into action.”

— Dan Pink, bestselling author A Whole New Mind, DRIVE, and When

The Language of Man is utterly captivating… Backed by wide-ranging research from neuroscience to philosophy and the engaging stories of some of the most creative people on the planet, Robertson shows how creativity is a mindset, a habit, a choice … bringing the vaunted notion of ‘genius’ out of the clouds and into our everyday lives.”

— Brigid Schulte, New York Times bestselling author, Overwhelmed

“There is no more timely or more important book (than Rebel Leadership) for those who lead in these uncertain times. Uncertainty is our new normal, or as Robertson writes, our new abnormal – leaders either accept this or perish. This brilliant, forward-thinking book, its vivid examples, and deep insights, will help you to not only survive uncertainty, but to thrive in it.”

— Tom Koulopoulos, author of Revealing the Impossible and The Gen Z Effect
