testimonials from clients and events

A mid-market CEO recently stated, “As a successful but stalled company with the ambition to break our current threshold, many tough subjects were addressed making difficult conversation necessary.  Michael guided our team through these opportunities to improve in a way we could not, would not, have done on our own.  Michael helped resolve our conflicts paving a path to almost immediate change.  His ability to dive into areas of conflict with a clear path of resolution is nothing short of extraordinary.  It has been priceless!”


Michael’s Certifications include: Gazelles Coaches International, Topgrading, T.A.D., and SIMA Executive Coaches International

10 Questions : Company Health Check

You work hard, you've invested in growth & yet you still feel like there's opportunity to elevate your company's performance. What’s missing? How can you amplify your game?

Below are 10 questions to help you assess the overall health of your company.

  1. Do you have a clearly written & communicated CORE PURPOSE shared by everyone?
  2. What are your CORE VALUES? How well do you reinforce them (employee hiring & development)?
  3. Can everyone on the team articulate how your business makes money?
  4. Does your whole team know your 1, 3 to 5 & 10 year targets?
  5. Who is your Core Customer & are you reaching them effectively?
  6. What 3 – 5 attributes differentiate you from your competition?
  7. Do you have the right people in the right seats?
  8. Do all team members have KPIs that are tracked weekly, quarterly & annually?
  9. Do you have a detailed written budget, do all of your team members understand its key drivers & are you monitoring it regularly (e.g. monthly or quarterly)?
  10. Do you have a ONE-PAGE-STRATEGIC-PLAN & is your team aligned around it?
