His client list developed over the years from small business owners to larger companies including Toshiba, the 17th largest company in the world, Paramount Home Entertainment, a billion dollar a year division of Viacom and Arrow Electronics, a twenty billion dollar a year firm based out of Denver.

In 1996 Alexander began a series of behavioral modeling projects to elicit the strategies of world class athletes, artists and entrepreneurs. These strategies are offered in corporate trainings and to his business and personal development coaching clients.

After spending 2 years learning how to model something, Alexander conducted his first behavioral modeling project in 1997. Determined to elicit the structure of creativity in detail, he read Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks every single day for two years while eliciting Walt Disney’s actual creative process and studying Peter Drucker’s concepts on innovation.

The project loosed a flood of creative ideas. He has conducted formal ongoing behavioral modeling projects ever since. Over the next several years he elicited and created over 200 original patterns of excellence and models.

He’s modeled the comeback strategy of tennis legend Andre Agassi, the delegation techniques of a senior executive at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the visionary syntax Tom Watson used to create IBM, the mental game secrets of body building champion Tom Platz, and the memory methods of a world class violinist.

In 2002 he was hired by the Bluegreen Land & Golf Corporation to behaviorally model their top sales people and referral getters. Some of their sales elite now earn over a million dollars a year in commission.

Alexander has been a featured presenter for the Stanford Executive Program Graduate School of Business at Stanford University.
