Do you need a business coach?

Being an entrepreneur and business owner is hard.   It is a constant struggle that requires you to be multiple versions of yourself throughout the course of a day.  If you identify with one or a combination of the personas listed below,  you're a prime candidate for exploring a coaching relationship. The greatest athletes, performers, and yes, business owners in the world have a coach. Being a business owner is hard, but finding someone you can trust to give you the guidance you need allows you to focus on  what you do best.

The Visionary

  • You have big goals and love what you do but just can't seem to make it all work together.
  • Your business has wild swings of instability and inconsistency.
  • You spend more time putting out fires than focusing on opportunities.  You may also tend to ignore those fires outright.

The Expert

  • You have more business than you can handle but you can't solve how to scale. 
  • You rely on 20% of your team to accomplish 80% of the workload.  
  • Initiatives and opportunities are constantly put on the back burner or left half-finished.     

The Rock

  • Your business consistently delivers a quality service  but you're fearful of growth.  
  • You don't trust your instincts when it comes to your business goals.   
  • You have big ideas but it takes a long time to implement.

Benefits of Performance Faction Coaching

Performance Faction is dedicated to helping business owners achieve the business and life they want.  Below are the key challenges most owners face and the right column highlights what working with Performance Faction will do for your business.

From Key Challenges

  • Self-Reliant

    "I do it best". Things only happen when owner(s) involved. Quality doesn't consistently meet standards.

  • The Referral Syndrome

    Business lives and dies by the referral, few lead sources elsewhere.

  • Billing Chaos

    Inconsistent and wild variations in pricing and billing practices vary from client to client.

  • Responsive Team

    Team bases success on owner emotions vs tangible results. Small minority does majority of the work. Likelihood of bottom 10% shouldn't be there.

  • Generic Differentiation

    Vague value proposition. Long list of services with little perceivable difference from competition.

  • Growth Myths

    Growth seems more like headaches than success. Myths begin to form to justify limiting beliefs and business practices.

To High Performance Culture

1 Valuable Positioning.  Establishing a unique brand reputation and differentiation from competition.  The business establishes an identity beyond "cool portfolio."
2 Team Centric.  Tools,  processes, and skills to find, retain, and maximize the talents of a high performance team.  Everyone contributes and  innovates for the benefit of the business and client.

3 Complexity Simplified.   Methods and structure for managing work in a complex, creative environment.  Building blocks  for your own successful system of running a business.

4 Profit with Purpose.   Recoup more value from the success the business delivers with consistent and profitable pricing to maximize cash flow for future growth.

Additional Benefits:

  • Introduction to strategic partnerships and collaborators.

Total Performance Review

Below is a high level snapshot of the Total Performance Review process designed to gather a thorough understanding of  your business and deliver meaningful results.

Part 1: Business Review

Top to bottom review of the business to include an assessment of the 5 core areas of the business as well as team interviews, financial review, and overall business performance and benchmarks. Final deliverable includes a "State of the Business" report as well as recommendations on areas of strength and improvements.

Part 2: Core Areas

A in-depth step by step review of the core areas of the business (Leadership, Sales, Operations, Finance, Team). Exercises and discussions to establish methods, processes, and overall best practices within each area. Identify critical business activities and ensure consistency and quality metrics are tracked.

Part 3: Roadmap

Identify goals, timelines, and implementation tactics for each core area and previously identified areas of opportunity. Ensure accountability and company wide support. And celebrate!

Maintenance Coaching

After completion of the full Total Performance Review engagement, the need for ongoing coaching and support is evaluated and an ongoing engagement may begin that is specifically tailored to meet the needs of the business and owner(s).

And a few misc items:

  • Each part of the Total Performance Review program is a self-contained deliverable with tangible and valuable takeaways and deliverables.
  • Engagement can be cancelled at the completion of any single  component.
  • ROI Guarantee - This guarantee ensures an annualized direct return of investment equal to or greater than the cost of the engagement for any business that goes through the full engagement.  Return of  investment opportunties includes cost savings, referrals, business development tactics, and other strategies where cost improvement can be evaluated.
