The best athletes in the world improve their skills and performance with coaching. And the best business leaders and visionaries have discovered similar benefits from being coached at what they do as leaders.
Coaching is one of the highest leverages on the “consulting dollar” because it enables the client – a senior leader – to get far more from his or her time, effort, team, and business.
Coaching is both a methodology and a service that is highly flexible. It puts the individual in the center of his or her universe, helps them be clear about what’s most important to them, provides support and guidance across time to do what it takes, and through to completion of their objectives.
Working with a coach is a privilege that more and more leaders are giving to themselves.
Our Primary Coaching Markets:
- Business & leadership coaching for Business Owners
- Business & leadership coaching for Other Leaders, like heads of organizations, executives and managers, members of family businesses, etc.)
- Coaching for Visionaries, to help to articulate, translate, implement or manifest your ideas and vision
We also coach people considering career change, and help them create and fulfill the transition.
While coaching is highly flexible and highly productive, it is not the right tool for every business need. Sometimes it takes a focused project to implement solutions or bring about desired results. Other times it takes an extended meeting or facilitated retreat with members of your team to plan and work on solutions.
We work with clients on a variety of organizational and management solutions in the areas of People, Process, Strategy, and Structure. We roll up our sleeves and perform the project work with them or do it all ourselves as an outsourced solution at the client’s request.
Interim Executive/Board Roles
Sometimes you just need someone at an executive level to perform one or more functions for your business on a short term basis, not as an outside consultant but as an inside leader with authority to get things done for you. Members of our team can serve clients in specific roles (like interim President) and floating roles, like a “utility player” in baseball who can play any of a number of positions on your leadership team.
Members of our team also serve as board members for clients and other organizations.
Business Finance Work
The better organized, structured, and functioning a company’s financial operations are, the more it helps with managing cash, cash flow, and financing, accounting, and investment decisions. That’s why we brought serial entrepreneur and CPA John D’Aquila onto our team: To help you optimize the financial management and operation of your business, to help you obtain debt financing and equity funding, and to help structure your business for M&A or sale.
John is a highly experienced interim CFO to clients under $20 million in revenue and heads up our financial consulting services.
