When we came to Jan, our company was financially strong. We’d been in business for over 20 years, had a strong customer base and good employees. But….we were new business partners and had just purchased the business together the prior year. Our different management styles negatively affected our employees, sowing distrust among the ranks. We had a very difficult time working together running the business. In front of the customers we were great. In front of our employees was another thing altogether.
We reached out to Jan in an attempt to fix what was broken. She’s worked diligently with us to learn to trust each other, embrace each other’s style of management and to realize that we both had the best interest of the company at heart. One of us is a process driven engineer and the other a big picture sales person at heart – a hard combination if not managed correctly. Jan showed us how the business needs both our ways of thinking and will thrive if we allow our each other’s strength to shine.
We have been working with Jan for a year and a half. If we did not find her, I am convinced that we would either be out of business or one of us would have left. With her guidance, we are continuing to grow our business and are actually having fun working as business partners. As our business relationship mends, she continues to be a big part of our team. She assists us with long range planning, employee HR issues and marketing plans. We came to her to help us work better together. What we found was so much more.
