We Deliver Great Performances For Trades

Business coaching and support services for the Trades and Construction industry.

The majority of our clients are in the trades. There is good reason for this. Great Performances Group has extensive experience in the trades and contracting environment and understand both the challenges and opportunities.

We work with Plumbing, HVAC, Electrical, General Contracting, Design Build, Finishing Carpentry, Roofing, Painting, and other trades.

We grow Trades Businesses like we grow any other business, through the Great Performances 3-Cycle approach. Some of the opportunities and challenges unique to the trades that we address include:

Recruiting. There are no great places or times to recruit in the trades. Either you are in a hothouse environment where candidates are scarce and pay through the roof, or you are in a ‘quiet’ environment where it is impossible to find even moderately qualified candidates because… they are all moving to the hothouse locations!

Getting Off the Tools. You can’t grow your business if you are on the tools. We help you start from scratch to build the systems and the team to get you off the tools and growing your business.

Beyond Feast and Famine. The trades are closely tied to housing cycles and even the weather. We work to develop predictable cash flow, diversified revenue sources, and a team that knows customer service and sales are at least as important as anything they learned at school.

I’ve been working with Clemens Rettich for about 4 years now. During this time our company the Super Plumber has more then quadrupled in size by revenue, employees, and profit. Thru this process, I’ve included Clemens in every major decision that I’ve required feedback and advice on. He has a way of making complicated process’s uncomplicated, and helps me feel more confident in my decisions. If your thinking about using his services, stop thinking so much, just do it. You’ll be impressed.

Clemens, I have gained a healthy level of respect for the breadth of your business knowledge. A couple of months ago I retained you as a business coach. I run a strong business, but I have always had nagging doubts about the way I do things, and where my focus should be. You spent a great deal of time up front gaining an understanding of my business, as well as the industry as a whole and the environment I work in. Once you had that down, you turned your attention to me.I’m happy to say that I can now move forward with my business development, comfortable in the knowledge that the path I have chosen is the correct one. You have helped me to refine the focus of my clientele, recognize the market that has the highest potential for development, and bolster my brand and image.Thank you so much for all of the support and encouragement.

As my business and personal Coach, Clemens has moved me out of the realm of “comfortable” and into uncomfortable. It is during this state where I find my greatest occurrences of growth, both personally and professionally. Specifically, in the past 2 years he has recommended and directed me in implementing two very difficult changes which have had significant positive impacts in my life. I know without doubt that I would not have made these changes without Clemens’ expert advice and because of this I recommend him to all who seek such a professional. My life is so much better because of him.

Then Clemens Rettich got up to speak – wow he was off to a fast start, challenging the old models of business, bringing us up to date and acknowledging the changes that are unfolding in our society and business relationships. It was stimulating, provocative and belief shattering! As you can imagine it also stirred quite the discussion after wards. Today I ordered Clemens book “Great Performances” I am inspired.
