The keys to helping business owners be more successful is by helping them make better decisions, being held accountable for taking focused action, insuring alignment between business and personal goals and making sure they have the right people in the right positions. I am passionate about helping other business owners achieve greater success through goal setting, identifying and executing the needed strategies to achieve those goals. I draw upon over 25 years experience managing companies from start-ups to over $175 million in revenues and utilizing knowledge and a skill set that has helped business owners achieve their goals for over 18 years. I have successfully managed companies and advised business owners in both good economic times and poor. I have been responsible for all aspects of company functions and know what it is like to live with my decisions. My coaching clients are owners of companies in a wide variety of industries including service, manufacturing, construction, sales and distribution, and IT.
Through The Alternative Board I have implemented these precepts to help business owners successfully respond to major issues of strategic focus, selling a company, succession planning and exit transition, recruitment of key employees, organizational analysis and design, annual planning, marketing and sales strategies and management team development.
