Who Are We | Who Do We Help

If you feel like your business is running you, you are not alone.

 

 

As a business owner, entrepreneur, or CEO, you have the passion and will to succeed.

You’ve done it. You’re growing. You’re succeeding. Well done!

But even when business is good, it can be overwhelming, and when it is bad, it is awful.

  • The growth you are realizing brings with it complexity and confusion.
  • The economy is unpredictable, people are frustrating, and cash flow management is challenging.
  • Growth brings stress, frustration, and doubts—in yourself, your team, and your future.

You are not alone.

Help is on the way! Learn how to operate in “the zone” – where you do well without doing more. In the zone, everything flows. Challenges are invigorating instead of overwhelming. Pressure transforms into the flow, and you feel unconstrained by time and resources.

Learn how to do well without doing more.

Owning a business can be fun again.

As a guide and coach, we help business leaders, individually and collectively, navigate the struggles, confusion, and complexities of growth.

So be like a world-class athlete and get a business coach to help you get what you want.

Marc’s become of my closest and most trusted advisors. Effectively coaching and moderating a group of CEOs, carefully navigating their issues and personalities to help them overcome the various obstacles they face is no small feat, I imagine – yet Marc does so seemingly effortlessly. Marc’s a natural conversationalist and can quickly create an environment of trust and respect that allows you to feel confident in sharing issues. He’s also great at guiding you to finding your own solutions – and is willing to hold you accountable for taking action on them.

Our Core Values and Guiding Principles

We provide support and help.

Running a business is complex and often very lonely. We support our clients, groups, and network through compassion and unconditional support. However, we hold you accountable for your commitments.

You are the hero

In our story, you are the Hero. Our role is to work with you and your team as a guide, coach, and teacher, providing the necessary tools and resources so that you will succeed in your mission. When you succeed, you are the Hero, and our story improves.

Be humble, hungry, and smart.

We know we don’t know everything, so we aren’t concerned about ego or status. We are always seeking more things to do, to try, to learn, and value to create.

Flexible, agile, and continuously improve

The world is unpredictable and constantly changing. To succeed, we need to be flexible, agile, and continuously improving; that is why we are named Kaizen. Our improvements are often implemented incrementally, but through that, success comes faster.

Learn, Grow, Apply

We believe that “Learning has no age limit,” so you always need to be “a student,” pushing yourself outside your comfort zone to grow continuously. Value is realized when you apply your new knowledge, even though you may not get it right the first time!​

Create Value for Everyone, Constantly

We seek to create value at every opportunity for everyone, not just paying clients.

Recruit, Recruit, Recruit!

Recruit, Recruit, Recruit!

An uptick in business has begun this quarter, and companies are rushing to hire to meet this surge in demand. What amazes me is how many are so unprepared to hire. Continual recruiting is key to the survival of a company. It isn’t the same thing as hiring—continuous recruiting is building a pipeline of people that you would hire if you needed to fill a position, or “A players” you would hire if they were available.

We All Need Clarity

We All Need Clarity

If your organization is focused on obscurity over clarity, whether intentionally or not, your “A” player employees are vulnerable. There is a looming talent crunch. As we start to emerge from COVID, demand is increasing, and many are scrambling to fill positions to meet that demand. Headhunters and recruiters are soon going to be calling your key “A” employees. Have you been giving them a reason to stay?

Not Another **** Meeting

Not Another **** Meeting

As Leonard Bernstein put it so well, “To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan and not quite enough time.” Your meetings can be shorter, more fruitful, and engaging, with better outcomes for the organization, employees, and managers. It’s time to examine your meeting rhythms and how you set meeting agendas. This week, I break down daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, annual, and individual meeting rhythms, with sample agendas for each.
