My superpower is bringing structure to chaos, and business can be chaotic. Are you overwhelmed? Do you see no clear path forward? Do you need more personal accountability? If you said yes to any of these questions, I can help.
What kinds of things do you help with?
My customers usually come to me and say something along the lines of, “I need to x but I don’t know how,” or “I need someone to unpack this problem with me”. I use my process orientation and tactics to help you work through your major challenges and come up with a plan. Some examples include:
Pulling yourself out of the day-to-day of your businesses to focus on strategic planning.
Organizational and process development.
Business problems that you are not sure how to approach.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We set a kickoff meeting for me to get to know you and your business better.
We discuss the business challenges you want to work on and prioritize them.
We set a meeting rhythm that works for you (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly) and book it!
I provide you with an agenda template which you fill out and provide to me before each meeting.
In this agenda you identify the challenge(s) you want to address at this meeting, the outcomes you want to achieve, and report on your progress from the last meeting.
In the meeting I use my expertise and tools to work through your challenge with you and then set goals and accountabilities for you to achieve prior to the next meeting.
The Time In-between
I am available via email or phone for any help or guidance you need as you work through your goals and accountabilities before we meet again.
IS THERE A MINIMUM COMMITMENT?
Nope, but a 3-month commitment is recommended. This gives us a chance to work together on a clear understanding of your goals and the challenges you are facing, and also make real progress on overcoming them. But I am also available on an ad-hoc basis.
How much does it cost?
It depends on the challenge(s) we need to work on. Ongoing monthly engagements start at $750/mo, plus GST. These are driven by weekly, bi-weekly or monthly meetings and email/phone communication. Ad hoc sessions are $150/hour.
