Growth Cycle - Great Performances Group

Growth Cycle

You have been in business for up to 10 years. You have traction: 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 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.

You have a great management team in place. You do have questions about expanding, franchising, or selling, the business.

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.

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.

Clemens has proven to be an extremely valuable resource and asset in many areas including social media, marketing and as a presenter and facilitator during our annual general meetings. We have seen a marked improvement in the area of brand awareness and interactions with our clients via online social media sites.  Through our connections with Clemens we have developed a deeper understanding about the importance of social media and have made a commitment to further develop this area.  One of the greatest areas of impact has been felt through his presentations at our annual general meetings.  Clemens has participated in two annual general meetings thus far and provided all in attendance with information that applied to our industry while presenting it in a way that was informative, humorous and memorable.  On the second occasion, Clemens not only presented but operated as a facilitator enabling those from head office to focus solely on being a part of the meeting helping to create a truly team environment.  If you are looking for someone who will speak honestly, directly and thoughtfully in order to get you and your company where you want to be, we highly recommend that you meet with Clemens.  Once you’ve sat down and spoken to him we know that you’ll be as impressed as we are and make him a part of your team.
