Business Support
For Business Growth

Your Business Is Unique

Every business is unique. The market and industry it operates in, how long it has been around, the values of the owners: all of these things shape your business. At Great Performances Group we design responsive and effective systems and tools for business growth. The right tool at the right time gets the job done.

Three Cycles

Every business in your market, your community, and in the world, is at a different stage of growth. We divide those stages into 3 Cycles: Traction, Growth, and Enterprise.

Traction Cycle

You are just getting started. You need every bit of help to get traction, that solid connection with your customers that results in sales growth.

We know what keeps you up at night as a new business owner. Getting traction feels like it takes everything you have but the wheels still keep slipping. It is a constant effort to keep sales growing while also trying to build the foundations of a sustainable business.

Traction Cycle Priorities

  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Administration
  • Growing a network
  • Growing business knowledge

Growth Cycle

You have been in business for up to 10 years. You have traction: you have steadily growing sales and a few employees. You have more work than you can take on, and are working too many hours. There are a lot of good things happening, but the risks and complexity just keep piling on.

The Growth Cycle challenge: we go from having not enough work to having too much. This is a fun phase because we don’t stay up at night worrying about sales. But in the night the thought that this is not sustainable, creeps in. Inconsistency and overwhelm are the biggest challenges.

Growth Cycle Priorities

  • Recruiting & management
  • Marketing to grow market share
  • Developing systems

Enterprise Cycle

The business has its own momentum. You are a leader in your market and in market-share. You’ve been at this for 20 years or more and there are days when you don’t need to go in to work. You have a great management team in place. You have questions about expanding or selling the business.

An Enterprise Cycle business owner doesn’t so much have problems as complex choices. You have significant market share and consistent momentum. Your success is rooted in the success of your management team and the quality of your own high-level decision-making.

Enterprise Cycle Priorities

  • Management capacity
  • Effective leadership
  • Sale or Scale
