Having the structure to have difficult conversations, having the formats to hold people accountable, all of those tools are things that when we did not have we were winging it. Now it feels like we really have time tested tools.

Step One

Create Your Visionary Master Plan

If you’re a company that is functioning without strategic planning and annual goals—now is the time to start. If you already have a strategic plan, is it a living document that directs action and influences change, or is it simply a big task you do once a year that sits stagnant? 

Does the whole team know about it, or only a few?

Your success depends on where you stand in relation to the business outcomes you achieve. Every facet of long term results starts with your strategic plan.

You need to know the outcomes you are going for, and your strategic plan is your clearest roadmap.

As you and your team align around your strategic plan, it is a powerful shift in your company culture.

Your business plan helps your team better understand their role. It gives them working context. People need to know “the why” of what they’re doing; this empowers their individual problem solving, from small tasks to big projects.

The whole point is to empower others, increase their self-leadership, so they take action toward results.

You want to develop your team toward competence, so they are proactive, productive, and satisfied. 

As teams align, they increase individual confidence and ability to prioritize tasks and functions. 

The ongoing goal is to efficiently provide the necessary information and skills, so that each team member is able to confidently work toward the company’s overall intended outcomes.

Big results, that’s what we want for you!

Step TWO

Shape Team & Culture to Maximize Outcomes

When you make the cross-over from working as an individual to an effective business owner and leader, then you learn to rely much less on your personal effort and accountability for long term success.

You start to rely more on how you’re going to accomplish work through others you train and trust. This is a necessity to sustain growth and to achieve your much-needed business results. 

In our fast-paced, ever-changing world, you must work to develop your emotional endurance, and that of your team, so that you consistently make high stakes moves together.

Hiring A-Players and shaping an ACE Team of people (Alignment, Conscious Agreement, Effective Action) are  the main mechanisms for working successfully together. Retaining this level of talented people, with an emphasis on self-leadership, is what you need to help implement your biggest vision. 

You, as a business leader, must create the conditions in your culture for your people to utilize their skills and talents; a company where they can share their most critical thinking, with the freedom to take courageous action. You can learn to let go and rely on your team’s strengths, alleviating the overwhelm and burnout CEOs/owners often face.

Building a high performance team and healthy business culture is paramount. Even in complex business circumstances, you have choice and can take actions to move your business effectively forward. 

We can help. 

Step three

Build Infrastructure to Sustain Growth

Structure and processes are very important. In fact, there’s a principle in psychology that the more structure and process you have, the less emotional and reactive the work environment.

Many entrepreneurial companies begin with a big vision, but without an overall business structure or team in place, so the business will reach a point where it can no longer scale. 

To scale a business, means that there are strategies for growth that align with the original vision

(e.g. The vision and purpose, business plan, solid products or service, team, processes and operations, agreement and delegation training and skills, communications, marketing, mindful critical thinking, decision-making, self-leadership and human behaviors.) 

All of these come together to sustain company success.         

Having the “business part”structure, systems, and processes help you and your team advance your company in a rapid and sustainable way.

Many entrepreneurs don’t know all that they need. We train and support CEOs and teams as they plan and build the infrastructure that promotes and sustains growth. This also includes the “people part,” of the team. They need defined roles, and opportunities to grow in responsibilities and self-leadership. These are all vital to a company’s success.

We want to be of service.
