Value Building Coaching

We offer front office only coaching in virtual one-on-one and peer group formats. Virtual because our clients do not have the time to travel to in-person meetings. One-on-one coaching allows us to provide intense focus on a single company's challenges and opportunities. Our peer groups are collections of 10 CEOs/owners who help and support each other in monthly half-day meetings. All companies are US-based with B2B business models.

Value Build Coaching

At any stage of the company life cycle, CEOs who want to press past the frontiers of what they know and are comfortable with need a coach. We offer coaching in two formats: Mastermind Groups and one-on-one coaching.

In my Mastermind Groups, hard-working, coachable people come together each month in a safe, confidential environment where powerful things happen. Great business ideas emerge. Personal breakthroughs occur. And you leave the experience better than you entered as a person and professional. My one-on-one coaching takes place between mastermind group meetings and with CEOs who feel they can benefit most from my expertise. In both formats, you will be held accountable to deliver on the actions you decided were key to moving your company forward. This is essential to keeping you from falling back into the day-to-day routine that limits forward progress.

Exit Preparation Coaching

Many business owners/CEOs wait to begin the process of thinking about an exit too close to the time of the exit. Each exit path has unique preparation and value creation conditions. Optimizing for these conditions can take from months to years to maximize what you hope to get from the business. For example, in a sale transaction EBITDA is a critical consideration, but in a merger transaction market positioning or IP may be more important. There are 16 key KPIs each of which may be optimized slightly differently depending on the likely exit path you company should take. Selecting the most likely exit path for your company involves a five-step process to evaluate the likelihood you can optimize the KPIs for any desired path. We work with you to strategically identify a path forward toward an exit that has the most benefit to you and your goals.
