Finding your clear path to growth and achieving your goals

Even as the economy heats up, improving your business has many challenges. Markets  are constantly in flux. Managing several hundred employees is never easy . And keeping your product quality high while controlling expenses is a never-ending struggle.

Amid all this you recognize the need to innovate and grow, and you never cease the pursuit of  the higher goals that often elude a company. You want to expand, develop exciting new ideas, scrap an old product and start with a fresh one. You need to refocus departments, redefine accountabilities and much more.

All these things that sound easy in principle, but end up being long and difficult if not seemingly impossible…

You have made an incredible difference here in the past 6 months – if it wasn’t for you we wouldn’t have got anywhere in this team – J, New York, USA, 2016

Making a substantial business better takes a lot more than just trying harder. I work with managers over the course of a year to learn where your business is now and get it moving towards the place you want it to be in the near and distant future.

I listen closely to your challenges, the things you are excited about, and your thoughts about the months ahead. If you wish, we can look at your systems, procedures, products, and any other factor that can impact your direction and bottom line.

Help setting a direction

Your business direction may already be strongly defined, or you may be working hard just to get from one day to the next. Either way, I work with you to define an intelligent vision to articulate where you want to go.

This makes a vast difference in any organization. Your vision needs to drive the products or services you sell. It defines the roles your employees have, their approach to their work, and new areas to apply creativity.

This can transform your business in very positive ways. From small changes that don’t disrupt – yet have big dividends – to major shifts that place you on an exciting new path.  Having changes aligned by their ties to a clear strategic vision is the the key piece of the puzzle that many – if not most – companies overlook.

You are the absolute model of willingness to help – DR, New York, USA, 2015

Developing an ideal state

You already know that there are concepts, attitudes, and ideas that help re-position your team to work better, more efficiently, and with significantly improved results. These can make the seemingly impossible much more probable. Your work and that of your teams becomes easier and more productive.

But how will you apply the tools you already have, and the ones you’ll learn about in the future, if you don’t know for sure what you’re building?

When you found yourself on uncertain ground you did an excellent job of analyzing the situation, and ended up causing positive change. You are a great coach. – SL, Toronto, Canada, 2016

Together we will analyze your situation. I will support you with my experience and coaching processes over the course of a year, so that every move is carefully thought out. You want to ensure you create positive impact and a chain of beneficial events.

Identify and prioritize opportunities for improvement

One of the great benefits of bringing in an outsider is that you get an external view of your  opportunities. A fresh set of eyes to see capabilities and areas for improvement that others may miss. My particular eyes come with a strong background in tactics for manufacturing and growth, and 25 years of business experience.  This has broad application in just about every industry.

I will work closely with you to fully understand your unique situation, and we’ll identify those areas where  subtle changes can make a big difference.

These can be hidden opportunities in your manufacturing,  procurement, processes, markets, sales, and financial strategies and more. The areas where improvements can be made are as varied as your business is from others.

We will develop a list of improvements and prioritize them; and then work out an implementation plan that includes influencing the other stakeholders. Let’s get those improvements achieved logically, and in a timely fashion.

Challenging the beliefs that hold you back

Every person or team has beliefs can get in the way. These may be factors that you are already painfully aware of. Or maybe they’re buried in processes or numbers.

Maybe somebody’s management style isn’t getting the results you want – and could be improved more simply than you’d think. Or it can be a manufacturing process that has hidden problems with reverberating influences.

I am amazed at your ability to analyze and understand a situation – DA, Baltimore, MD, USA, 2003

Often by managing these limiting perspectives you can step into a new era. Life becomes easier as you get improved results and better outcomes. As the old saying goes, if you keep doing the same old thing, you can’t expect different results. This is the fresh new opportunity you need to more easily achieve your vision.

Let’s talk about it

If you have read this far, you are not looking for an easy fix in your company, department or role.  That’s good – because nothing of value gets created overnight. On the other hand, business problems that are hard are usually still simple, and rely on taking one right step after another. We will work together to make the intelligent changes you need to improve current operations and achieve deliberately planned success.

If you’re interested, let’s start with a 2 hour conversation. I offer this at no cost to you if you’re a manager or executive in a company of 100 employees or more, located in Canada, America, Australia or New Zealand. There is no obligation. I believe I can help you, but we have to be a good match.
