Business Therapy Services
When you’re ready to get started, we meet bi-weekly at a neutral site (coffee shop, restaurant, etc.) and spend around two hours talking over the challenges you are facing and how best to respond to them. Our sessions take on a life of their own covering a broad range of subjects; always focused, though, on improving your business operations and allowing you to enjoy your personal life.
Some examples of things we may consider:
- Where you bring value to your business and areas which you should turn over to others
- Appropriate structuring of internal operations
- Properly aligning your staff to enhance their productivity by tapping into their talents
- Being true to yourself – no one is great at everything
- Knowing when to fire, or not take on clients
- Opportunities to partner with others in synergistic relationships
- Leveraging your current strengths to go after customers in new areas
These are just a few examples of things we will discuss. Your sessions are unique to your business, your personality and the challenges YOU are facing! Coming out of each session you will have some action items (of your choosing) to respond to before our next session. You are welcome to contact me at any time about anything, and I will occasionally contact you between sessions to check on your progress.
