KEYS TO SUCCESS:

  • A clear vision
  • An aligned strategy
  • Consistent implementation
  • An effective coach
  • Great outcomes

According to Jim Collins, your business is like a giant flywheel. When the flywheel turns, it creates energy that is necessary to drive the organization. It is the job of all the employees of the organization to try to turn the flywheel. The flywheel will only turn consistently when there is good alignment of forces.

HOW TO BUILD A SUSTAINED PROFITABLE BUSINESS?

CONCERN & FRUSTRATION:

Entrepreneurs, business owners, and key executives in any organization share a common concern: How do I build a solid business with sustained profitability? They get frustrated when the strategies designed to build a solid business fail to deliver desired results. This breeds a perpetual need to rework the strategies and achieving long-term success becomes a real struggle.

DIAGNOSIS & CURE

A major failure in many organizations is the lack of clarity of purpose, vision, strategy and execution. Typically, key executives are consumed by the day-to-day, leaving them little, or no time to think about the clarity and alignment of purpose, vision, strategy and execution within their organizations. The cure lies in adopting a sound long-term strategic focus and implementing a process for executing strategies.

The gears of business must mesh at all times. Any misalignment will cause strategies to fail and derail the business development process.

DO THE GEARS OF YOUR BUSINESS MESH?

  • Is the purpose for the company’s existence clearly stated?
  • Is the executive team committed, cohesive and focused?
  • Is the executive team aligned behind the vision?
  • Is the vision clearly communicated to the entire organization?
  • Are the strategies aligned with the vision?
  • Is the entire executive team fully aligned on each strategy?
  • Are short-term goals always aligned with long-term strategies?
  • Are the executives focused on the right priorities?
  • Do all employees fully understand their individual roles & responsibilities?

IMPLEMENT A PROVEN METHOD FOR A LIFETIME OF BUSINESS LEADERSHIP

The CEO Advantage™, based on the work of several experts on business leadership (Jim Collins, Verne Harnish & Patrick Lencioni), is a set of simple yet practical tools designed to help executives focus on three key areas:

  • Long-term strategy
  • Strategic execution process
  • Team/organizational health

Organizations have to create discipline and change certain habits. Unfortunately, most organizations struggle with the change when they do it themselves. They, therefore, engage an independent person who acts as their coach and advisor to effect the change.

LET AN EXPERIENCED BUSINESS COACH GUIDE YOU TO SUCCESS

The CEO Advantage™ process is best implemented by using an independent advisor who acts as a coach for the organization. Coach Prafulla (Praf) Pande is an independent advisor and a licensee ofThe CEO Advantage™.

THE COACHING PROCESS – KEY ELEMENTS & HOW IT WORKS

Building a solid business with sustained profitability is all about

  • Creating commitment, focus, discipline, aligned priorities and accountability among key employees;
  • Creating clarity and alignment at all levels of the organization; and
  • Creating a rhythm – and discipline – to work on important things as opposed to urgent things.

Despite the simplicity of these concepts, most businesses struggle when they attempt to implement them on their own. An independent coach and advisor, unencumbered by the daily needs and crises of the business, can act as an objective voice driving the organization towards a lasting change in behavior and habits.

SOME OF THE ELEMENTS OF BUSINESS COACHING

A coach’s greatest contribution is bringing focus and accountability to the organization. A coach can help to:

  • Identify the organization’s core ideology
  • Articulate the organization’s purpose (other than profits) and the mission to achieve that purpose
  • Identify the organization’s Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG)
  • Identify barriers to growth and develop strategies to overcome them
  • Create a strategic plan built on long-term thinking and short-term execution and aligned with the BHAG
  • Develop organizational clarity
  • Create a strong, aligned, and cohesive executive team
  • Create focus, discipline, and accountability to drive the strategy implementation process
  • Identify the organization’s competitive advantage
  • Create smart numbers that act as predictors of the organization’s future success
  • Help executives become good leaders and team players
  • Help the team develop good habits such as rhythm, decisiveness, and dedication to commitments

HOW DOES IT WORK?

As a coach, Prafulla engages with organizations in a series of meetings to help identify and execute strategies. A typical meeting schedule includes:

  • Annual planning session with the entire executive team: 2 days per year
  • Quarterly review and coaching meeting with the entire team: 1 day per quarter
  • Monthly session with the entire team to aid with strategy execution: one half-day per month
  • Weekly meeting with a specific agenda to maintain focus: 1 hour per week (preferably conducted by a member of the team other than Praf)
  • Daily huddle to identify individual issues or concerns: 15 minutes per day (conducted by the CEO without Praf)
  • One-on-one meeting with the CEO once per quarter or as necessary
  • One-on-one meetings with individual team members as necessary
