Is ClearCourse Consulting a fit for your

situation?

Do you plan to sell or transition out of your buisness in the next 10 years? Do you want to reach a higher level of success in your business? Would you like to revive your enthusiasm for your business? Would you like to improve your ability to control the business? Have you outgrown the current financial controls and expertise in the business?   

Do you plan to sell or transition out of your business in

the next 10 years?  

Planning   your business exit or business succession is a process that begins three to ten years before you want to leave. Exit Planning is a multi-step process that begins with helping you to determine what your successful exit will look like. Once your goals are set and prioritized, we will work with you to develop a road map to make sure your business is transferred to the successor you choose, at the price you want and on a date you choose.   We see this most often when the owner is too involved with the day to day operation of the business and has lost the strategic focus that was present during the growth phase of the business.  ClearCourse does a root cause analysis to rapidly identify the greatest threats to the business.  A plan is then developed to neutralize the most critical threats.  If desired, we can participate in the implementation of the plan.           

Do you want to reach a higher level of success in your

business?

ClearCourse clients achieve higher levels of success because they improve their ability to think and plan strategically and execute.   The strategic planning process takes you and your team through a discovery process and a creative process that will test your assumptions about the business and enable you to see the business in a different light.  The increased clarity and focus will lead to a deeper understanding of what are the most important priorities for the business. A great plan is useless unless you have great execution.  ClearCourse coaching ensures that your plan will be executed.  The objective achievement strategies, accountability, motivation and leadership skill development are custom tailored to meet the needs of each individual client.

Would you like to revive your enthusiasm for your

business?

Whoever said "It's lonely at the top," must have spent a few years as CEO of a private company.  With few exceptions, the CEO of a developing company will eventually reach a point where their skill set alone, will not take them beyond the current state of the business.  This can happen in any phase of development of the business.  To move beyond this point, the CEO must seek help or risk the perils of managing a business that has stopped growing.  ClearCourse  advisory clients typically report the following benefits:       •  Overcame roadblocks that have been holding them back       •  Learned new strategies to achieve their goals       •  Increased profits       •  Gained better control of their business       •  Renewed enjoyment of owning their business  

Would you like to improve your ability to control the

business?

What gets measured, gets done.  Most companies we encounter have too few performance indicators built into their processes.  The result is very little visibility into what forces are impacting the business and very little advance warning before something goes wrong.  Without proper metrics, it is very difficult to achieve goals.  Business metrics provide the accountability that drives a business.  We specialize in working with you to develop and implement the metrics you need to manage and control your business and increase the accountability of you and your team.

Have you outgrown the current financial controls and

expertise in the business?
