Business
Through Growth and Transitions
  • At this stage of business growth, how far you want it and you to go?

  • How do you attract the right talent, a good business partner, or buyer?

  • Do you have the processes and supports to take your business to the next level?

  • Are you looking long-term to transition your successors, or sell and take your hard-earned equity with you?  

When you grow or transition your business, no matter how exciting the prospect, it’s always daunting. The learning curve, number of decisions and actions can be overwhelming. It’s tough to keep up with demands for innovation, speed, new markets and pricing while also attending to the human factor, the relationships and positive leadership required. And that’s just in the work environment. Home life, closest relationships and personal goals are often taken for granted or neglected. Sometimes until it’s too late.

Not doing anything about your business dreams and life goals will ensure you’ll be in the same place next year. Your drive to grow the business and financial potential will go unmet. Satisfaction with life is negatively affected. This in turn affects everyone around you.

When we strategically develop your business, deliberately implementing each phase systematically over time—and you do it within the context of your overall life plan—you build something that’s lasting. And satisfying. You develop the leadership, patience and insight that ultimately brings confidence, ease and speed. Instead of being reactive you and your people become resilient, focused and persistent. You stay the course with readiness to leap or pivot when circumstances present opportunity or profit. Because you all know what you’re aiming for. In short, you have the foundation to go further faster. To achieve what you created the business for in the first place.

Business Partners; Business Teams

Business partnership has a lasting impact on how and where a business will grow. It takes clarity, communication, and the right processes to make it work. When we clarify values, share visions, plan strategically and implement consistently, you achieve your goals and successfully build your business together. Figuring out how to bring unique individuals together in a successful business is the goal. When things are going well, it carries throughout your organization and all relationships. Together you create better. You just do it all better together.

Long-Term Planning: Exit, Sale and Life After

Whether or not you have specific goals and dreams you’d like to realize upon exiting, having the proper people and pieces in place makes it all go more smoothly.  A realistic strategic action plan ensures everyone is on the same page so you are always ready for an offer of purchase, transition to successors, and embracing solid personal relationships and activities after. Beginning to plan when you start the business is best. But 3-10 years out allows you time to not only reflect on what you want in life-after business, but also to continue to grow your biggest asset.
