Business leaders who want to improve their performance in current roles or get ready for a promotion are the primary focus of this program. Together, we will identify 3 key focus areas, build a rolling 90-day plan, and provide either semi-monthly or monthly coaching.

SAMPLE ENGAGEMENTS:

A COO in the power generation industry needed to create and capture growth opportunities outside of those generated by natural disasters. Sales had declined, and the company was having difficulty attracting and retaining people. We helped build and empower the team by asking them to identify and solve the challenges facing the company. Using the data from this roundtable, we helped create a one-year strategic plan that broadened their reach and opened new distribution channels. We also started monthly coaching programs for the COO and individual niche leaders. The COO realized the value of asking for help with company issues and team members felt more involved and appreciated by taking on this role.

We worked with the CEO of an Atlanta CPA firm to put together a 3-year strategic growth plan. To ensure it was achievable, we developed one-year goals and 90-day action plans. We also worked with the staff to help resolve key issues. Semi-monthly coaching with the CEO helped the firm stay on track and provided meaningful ad-hoc problem-solving opportunities. The result: the firm has achieved 20% growth annually.

A production manager in a large-scale bakery was promoted to a larger role and did not have prior leadership and management experience. Our Change Readiness and Leadership diagnostics provided insight into what she needed to succeed in this new role. Semi-monthly coaching sessions were used to understand expectations and how the new role linked to the company’s strategic plan. Together, we created a 90-day plan that was updated consistently and for which we held her accountable.

An owner of a 20+ year old granite company needed his team to be more cohesive. The company had an excellent reputation and business was good. Yet his team did not get along well which impacted daily working relationships. We helped the owner articulate the purpose of the company and a vision that was communicated to each employee. Following that, we worked with all the employees to develop core values for employees to use as guiding principles for how to treat each other, their clients, referral partners, and vendors.

Ideal for leaders who want their entire team included in the program. This option takes businesses to the next level through tailored packages. Team members will develop a robust and ever-evolving strategic plan focused on delivering successful outcomes. Packages are tailored to your needs and options include intensive coaching, quarterly accountability updates, ad hoc problem-solving sessions, a leadership, and management Academy to grow talent, workshops, and access to our full suite of online training programs, business tools, and methodologies. This is an implementation support program designed to underpin your strategic plan.

SAMPLE ENGAGEMENTS:

The General Manager of a motion picture rental company needed to improve his recruiting and interviewing process. We mapped the existing process, met with staff to identify gaps, and needed improvements, and created an easy to implement process for candidate selection. Key C-Suite candidates were identified and hired, and the ROI included time savings and key employee retention.

We built and facilitated an internal leadership academy for a project management company to develop the next generation of leaders. The 3-year program led to team members advancing, including one to director level. After the program ended, there have been multiple projects, monthly coaching for the six Academy members, and quarterly coaching for the CEO.

We conducted a waste audit with a professional services firm team to identify inefficiencies that were draining profits. We trained team members so they understood how the waste audit is performed and ensured there was an individual on their team who can conduct future waste audits to increase profitability. Top 3 issues identified were: key processes, capacity, and scope creep. Engagement included monthly coaching and developing 90-day action plans to ensure accountability. The estimated value of removing the waste was $2 million.
