The Continuum program is a proven process necessary for small business success. By creating a laser focus on identifiable, key leverage points, structural changes can be made that the business needs to achieve success. How can this be done?
1. Assessing the current state for your business
A courageous business owner expects a thorough and honest evaluation of what stands between them and achieving their goals. Our discovery period encompasses in-depth owner executive discussions and interviews with key employees. We do an analysis of customers needs versus real experiences. We explore and evaluate industry and competitive threats and opportunities. We conduct employee assessments to identify talents, strengths and weaknesses both as individuals and as team members.
2. Vision & Key Strategies -A plan for the future
You can’t change the past. You can only affect the future. What you do now, in the present, dictates where you will be in the future. Defining where the company is headed and how it will get there provides a guidance system that directs all decision making and activity.
3. The role of leadership
People want two things from their leaders: “Tell me where we’re going and how we’ll get there,” and, “Tell me what you want me to do and let me go do it.” Leadership’s responsibility, one you can’t walk away from, is seeing that the organization knows its future goals and provides communication, support and guidance that is driven by your vision and your plan.
4. People – Talent and Roles
In order to win the game, a team needs to have players with the right talents fitted to required roles. The roles in your business are defined by your company’s objectives and strategies. Our employee evaluation process helps you match talents and skills with job requirements resulting in more energized employees and higher productivity.
5. Implementation and a metric guidance system
Armed with a plan and with the right people in the right places, the systems and processes we develop, when executed, will result in change, growth and success. In order to make sure that execution occurs properly, we put in place a metric guidance system to measure progress or warn of any necessary course correction.
