Operating and growing a small business is challenging often because of the ongoing dilemma in managing resources.
Learning to maximize those resources requires a strategic, practical plan targeted at the most impactful areas of your business.
We combine energy, experience, and expertise to thoughtfully develop realistic solutions and strategies for improvement.
We offer an hourly or project fee structure. Depending on the project objectives and client detail we also agree to a results-sharing fee structure. In this case, we are only paid after the established results have been achieved. Not all projects will be eligible for the results-share structure.

Of course, we generalize and over-simplify the explanations here.
However, our experience shows us it is very likely your daily actions, decisions, and energy flow up to one of these scenarios.
This service is an important differentiator from our competition. Our approach to software customization includes assessing the skills and capabilities of your current team and future hiring considerations.
Our primary objective is to minimize the pain involved with software implementation and adaptation. To help achieve this, we attempt to build-on or integrate with software you are familiar with or already use.
For example, we may enhance your current Excel or Google Sheets with code vs. building you a new "app" that requires a longer learning curve.
This process includes an assessment of your current systems, employee feedback, and decision-maker objectives.
Our Performance Management service identifies the metrics, indicators, and reports required for you to better understand your business and how to take action.
Two important measures to consider are your lead and lag measures. Lead measures provide insight to anticipating changes in your business, i.e. volume increases, improved revenue, customer turnover. Lag measures can provide similar insight except these are metrics that you can no longer take action on by the time you have the information or a report.
Taking the identification of these metrics a step further, we verify the numbers are accurately representing the events you see in your business.
This exercise is completed over planning and strategy meetings held with us and your appropriate team members.
Leadership Development is a critical component of effective change and performance. We've built our leadership training on our proprietary Leadership Principles, "The MCL."
"The MCL" principles help to stabilize your team and provide your managers or leaders with the necessary tools for motivating individual and team performance.
After building the foundation of knowledge with your team, we supplement their learning with situational-based scenarios to practice applying the skills learned.
Training is typically completed in one-one, small group, or group sessions depending on your company size and structure.

Let's discuss strategies and solutions for igniting performance!
Select a scenario if you feel one describes your current situation.
Small Business Owners who operate a successful business likely were or are an expert in their industry or provide superior service and/or pricing.
These Business Owners still feel like an employee of their company.
The business is turning a profit but has started to hit the ceiling in Revenue and Net Income.
The Small Business Owner is "stuck" between adding overhead by hiring staff in hopes the additional activity will allow revenue to outpace the increased operating costs. Or pushing the current team to increase sales to support hiring more staff. The classic chicken or egg dilemma.
The Small Business Owner started the business by doing something better than their competitors experiencing early success along the way.
The Business Owner has failed to learn critical business functions and structure necessary to build long-term success. For example, learning how to conduct an effective interview or properly structure job roles.
