Become a Better
The CEO of any company has the unique charter of managing three cohorts of individuals, The Employees, Customers and Shareholders of the business. Each group in their own right is relying on the leadership and confidence of the CEO to guide the business to consistent growth, innovation and profitability. So when the CEO seeks advice outside of their advisory board, who can they turn to? As the old adage goes, “Its lonely at the top.” This is where the CEO coach steps in.
The role of the CEO coach is to not only coach the leader, but to focus on the strategic goals of the entire organization. The coach holds the CEO and Senior leaders accountable to achieving the revenue, profitability and innovation goals of the business as well as guiding the CEO in their quest to create a healthy, productive and positive culture throughout the entire organization.
The process begins with a consultation leading to an exercise to define the mission, vision, and values of the company, create a cadence through weekly coaching calls, strategic guiding sessions, and stay on track with quarterly guiding sessions.
Our first step is to conduct a free consultation to determine if coaching is right for you. In this intake meeting, we will assess your company, industry, communication style, finance, sales and marketing, employee morale and any other factors you feel are relevant to a coaching relationship. We will provide you with our honest assessment of your current situation and will determine if we can help you with coaching.
Mission,Vission and Values
The Scaffolding of any business is its Mission, Vision, and Values. Any decisions from strategic to financial and hiring to firing need to align with this scaffolding.
Mission answers the question, “Why do we exist and who do we exist for?”
Vision answers the question, “What does success look like?”
Values are a set of behaviors that we all adhere to in order to support our Mission and Vision.
Weekly Coaching Calls
Our weekly coaching calls are the foundation of the CEO coaching practice. Conducted via video we emphasize continual forward momentum by leveraging our CEO experience with our proven methodology to accelerate your companies growth while achieving your profitability goals. While we won’t create your goals, we will certainly assist you in gaining clarity of what you want to achieve and will help you create attainable and measurable goals to turn your vision into realty.
Annual Strategic Planning Sessions
Your Annual strategic planning session is an opportunity to have multiple executives and managers in a room to make important decisions about the future of the organization. During this meeting, you’ll lead the group through a brainstorm on strategies for achieving your organizational goals. Then, you’ll evaluate these strategies by impact and feasibility, and select which strategies will be included in the upcoming annual strategic plan.
Quarterly Calibration Sessions
Your quarterly calibration sessions are conducted to evaluate how you and your team are performing relative to the Annual strategic plan. Any adjustments or pivots necessary will be discussed and decided in these meetings. Once these decisions are made, the appropriate changes will be made to the Annual Strategic Plan.
why you should
Let me coach you
All great performers have a coach. Look around – professional athletes, public figures, musicians and leaders. We all operate with blind spots. I will ask the hard questions to reveal those blind spots. We will have those candid conversations you cannot have with the board, and especially with your second line. You get a partner who you can be open with; one who is going to be sensitive, and yet objective; honest, and yet respectful. I have been there and done that. Lets get results together!
hear from industry leaders
Our offering has the complexities of high-end consulting assignments, and Ladd’s knowledge and insight have been invaluable in identifying and closing significant opportunities. I’ve worked with other advisors and am part of a small business round table group… having Ladd’s advice is very different… someone who has actually built, led, and sold a business successfully.
I’m a copious notetaker and Ladd’s advice is “book worthy”. What I captured during my sessions with Ladd has amounted to a “how-to” or “what now” reference guide.
