Group Coaching / Real World Roundtables:
In the earlier stages of business ownership, it’s imperative to have a business coach on your side that has seen the game through. From building an effective go to market strategy to determining efficient workflow, management and financial viability, these processes are not to be taken on alone. Through the Essentia Group Coaching Sessions, Michael Andersen and the Essentia team will help you and your business take the first steps down the path of entrepreneurial success.
In Essentia Group Coaching Sessions you’ll cover the following entrepreneurial and business challenges:
“My Company Owns Me” –Have your entrepreneurial inspirations moved from “Dreams of Greatness” to “Surviving the Storm?” You’ll discuss HOW your company is structured and HOW you, as the owner, can manage your time, your clients and your money more wisely and create a truly self-sustaining business.
“Building My Executive Team” – As owner, does the company’s success or failure rest solely on your shoulders? As an entrepreneur, they should – for a time, but one unique trait of a truly successful company is the ability to form a TEAM that can execute TOGETHER instead of everything falling on the owner’s shoulders. Successful companies have well defined executive teams that display organization, efficiency and a complete control of the future of the company. Through your Leadership Coaching sessions you will discover the most efficient plan and execution model to achieve team success today and in the future.
“Every Brain in the Game” – Like the plugs and pistons of a well-tuned engine, each person in your company provides their own unique value. Through training, culture-building, mentoring and “Real leadership” techniques, your employees become more than just the tools of your company, they become vested in the success of the company! Essentia will help guide you through the process of getting “Every Brain in the Game.”
“People Problems”– Just like the session name suggests, with more people comes more people problems. Why do internal employee conflicts cause such a tremendous cost on small companies? Because these people problems go unaddressed. In this session, you will be taken through the difficult process of determining how and where issues arise within your company as well as develop solutions on how to solve them.
“Put Your Payroll on a Diet” – Small business owners spend where needed to gain traction in their market, but most times don’t see where processes and delegation could help to “Cut the fat” from bloated expense reports and lost profits. It’s Essentia’s mission to show you how to work smart and be profitable. This session alone will show immediate ROI when you see where the budget can be tightened up.
“Finding and Filling Profit Holes”– Profit holes? As a small business owner, you’d be amazed at how many there actually are. From office expenses to payroll mistakes and other costly gaps, Essentia will help you identify the leaks and show you how to fill the holes for good!
“Improving Outside Sales”– Sales are a “Necessary Evil” when it comes to doing business, but why pay a staff or try to land accounts with the wrong tools? You and Essentia will evaluate your sales process as well as your sales staff and determine areas to improve return, increase efficiencies, and boost revenues! Your leadership and sales team will walk away from this session with a renewed vision and a proven process for successful sales for the company.
“Rallying Your Team Around A Goal” – Strong goals, like a good rudder, can straighten out any listing ship. As the “Company Captain,” you need to make sure that your whole crew is cognizant and focused on the same set of goals. While the stuff of every self-help guru is centered on creating goals, it’s a powerful force when everyone on the team has the same rally call – even a little intimidating. So this Essentia session will help you and your team TRULY DEFINE the company’s goals and set the course for everyone to cry their unified call-to-action.
“Vision, Mission, Values; The Real-Deal!” – Building a set of vision, mission and values statements is often done and then left for the top shelf, where they sit and collect dust on a valueless webpage. You and maybe a select few of committed team leaders know why and how these statements were even drawn up. They form the foundation of how all decisions are made within the company – or at least they should. In this Essentia session, you and your team will learn how to build on your vision, mission, and values statements to impact your business in many different ways!
