We grow businesses. Faster.

The Great Performances Group, under the leadership of Principal and Lead Consultant Clemens Rettich, works with startups and new businesses to get the best possible start; with rapidly growing businesses to build great teams and sustainable momentum, and with mature businesses developing exit and succession strategies including sales, acquisitions, and franchising.

The Great Performances Group provides business coaching, employee and management training, advising, and operational support.

Our job is to help you align all the parts of your business for sustained profitable growth. We make sure your marketing, management, finances, and operations are working together, pulling in the same direction.

We can help take your company to the next level – from start-up through expansion to exit and succession strategies.

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.

I highly recommend John as a coach and a business consultant: deep experience and interest in a client’s needs, strong support and powerful coaching skills helped me to identify a new level of my business development through amazing “Aha moment!” just in a hour work with John! Thank you John, and wishing you well!

It was our pleasure to work with Doug Walker through the IRAP-CAMC Management Advisory Service program. Our discussions were centered on developing a business strategy for bringing our R&D robotic prototype to the market. Doug coached us in discussing and developing various strategy components. With his vast knowledge, openness and clarity Doug guided us through the process in a short period of time with a solid set of results. We highly thank Doug for his great job and certainly recommend him as a management consultant to our peers.
