The Successful – Enterprise Scale – Business
Your 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 to work. You have a great management team in place.
You do have questions about expanding, franchising, or selling, the business.
As an Enterprise Cycle business owner, you don’t have problems as much as you have complex choices.
The heart of management is feedback. At the Great Performances Group, we help you develop a formal feedback strategy as part of your management practices. No ‘Kumbaya’ here. This is about performance, results, and an approach that creates a more stable, engaged, workforce. Guaranteed.
A manager’s primary responsibility is people. We support your managers to align the goals of the organization with the strengths of each team member. We provide management, training, and team development support. With you, we develop mangers who are efficient, effective, and growth-oriented.
We work with you and your leadership team to build a leadership culture. That culture is rooted in clarity, trust, and effectiveness.
Effective leadership aligns resources with priorities. We show you how to align resources (time, people, and money) with priorities.
The ultimate tools of an effective leader are inspiration and communication. We train leaders how to communicate a vision, getting engagement and results.
Sale or Scale
We are specialists in scaling, successions, and exits. We can guide you to structure your business for passive income, franchising, expansion through acquisition, or outright sale.
We ensure you have the best possible income and balance sheet position, for whatever choice you make.
We work with your team to put in place the management and systems that create the flywheel effect Jim Collins describes in Good to Great. This is a business that generates momentum from within; not requiring the daily presence of the owner.
Stephen Covey called on us to ‘begin with the end in mind.’ The reality however, is many very successful businesses don’t. But at some point the decision about what to do at a major transition point, or the final chapter, must be made.
We bring greater clarity, a track record of mitigating risks and leveraging opportunities. We don’t make the decision but we ensure you have the tools so you can, with confidence. The advisors and coaches at the Great Performance Group help you succeed, whatever the endgame is
Clemens, you have enhanced our view on how a successful, future-visioned business operates and functions. Our educational background is specialized in health, not in running businesses. With your advisement, Coastal Roots Health quickly went from a start-up multidisciplinary health clinic to two integrative health clinics that are designed for future growth. We cannot thank you enough for your advisement, attention to detail and big picture developmental coaching.
– Dr. Jennifer Gratton and Dr. Jeffrey Gratton of Coastal Roots Health Clinics
Doug was a joy to work with, as I pressed the reset button on our business after our main product’s market turned commodity. Though we design custom embedded systems and are challenged to explain what we do (other than “we specialize in the weird”) Doug came up to speed on our markets and talents and capabilities very quickly. He provided valuable guidance both on the process of evaluating business/product ideas (from a selection of over a dozen) to specific recommendations on some of the details of implementing the “go forward plan”. He is extremely bright, yet easy to work with, and communications were crystal clear at all times. We will continue to employ the benefits of his grey-matter in the future.
Doug’s coaching and mentoring were of great value to my company as we entered and proceeded through an international business competition. With Doug’s help, our company placed in the top ten. Doug’s help was especially important in the final round when we made our pitch to an elite group of investors.
Thanks to Doug’s experience, he had the ability to intuitively understand and analyze our strengths and weaknesses and quickly provide a clear, effective plan of action for us.
I began working with Doug in 2016, following a difficult year where we faced many of the regular challenges new start-ups meet. Doug rapidly helped me take a step back from my business and implement simple yet highly valuable tools to clarify our vision, focus and address issues at a steady pace, quarter after quarter. I would recommend other small business owners to work with Doug and implement the EOS tools.
