Hear from Deliberate Leaders

As Megan Lyons geared up to triple her team size, she grappled with decision-making pressures and concerns about meeting profitability targets.

Leading a company of 600 employees, Justin McNicholl realized he needed fresh perspectives to keep growing his business. He also struggled with staying focused and completing tasks.

Ryan Frasier was invited to buy Frasier Transport from his parents. The main challenge was to ensure a smooth ownership transition without disrupting the established company dynamics.

Steve Rausch struggled with solo law practice management, including marketing, client acquisition, workload management, and maintaining operational flow.

Dave Bailey struggled to market and grow his product. Despite believing in its potential, he was unsure about the next steps for expanding his business.

Ben Kalkman faced daily chaos. Consistent employee disagreements hindered operations and customer service. The lack of defined processes stressed him out.

Shellan Rodriguez felt scattered. She was constantly unsure about where to focus her efforts for maximum profitability and strategic growth. This led to inefficiency and anxiety.

Marc Davison and his wife successfully grew their medical imaging business, but they were uncertain about the company’s future direction and growth. They needed clarity and strategy.

We have a lot more 😉

Our Engagement Strategists will lead the entire process from start to finish, while taking the day-to-day pressures off your business owners and managers.

We have several packages available. Your program is up to four hours per month of phone, skype or face-to-face sessions with you, depending on which program you choose. These consultations will be used to set and review goals, discuss your progress, and troubleshoot your challenges. Additionally, your coach is always accessible during business hours by cell phone or email to discuss any unforeseen challenges or obstacles during the week.

Your Executive Business Coach is essentially a mentor and motivator. To ensure that you keep up with the work required, and to ensure your program and its fundamental philosophies are instilled correctly, you will be required to spend several extra hours per week working on the things you agree to in your coaching session. This is required to achieve the desired results in the quickest possible time but may occur outside normal business hours.
