Do any of these problems sound familiar?
Leadership: Your company culture sucks and it’s affecting morale. You need a skilled facilitator to conduct an off-site designed to unify your senior leadership team.
- Real Estate: Your business has outgrown its current office space, but you don’t have the resources to look for additional square footage or to do the financial analysis on the operational costs that go along with a larger footprint.
- Project Management: You have a critical new construction project or other short-term initiative that needs to get underway yesterday. With your staff stretched thin, you need an experienced outsider to come in, get up to speed fast and spearhead the project to completion.
- Performance Improvement: Your performance evaluation process hasn’t been updated since the program first rolled out; at this point the program is more of an annoyance than a means for motivating employees or improving performance.
- Cost Control: Company expenses are far exceeding budget; on top of that, you have no internal controls for approving spending before it happens—you just experience the sticker shock when invoices roll in.
- Profitability: Revenues are off and your management team needs to make some hard decisions on what the future organization should look like to optimize profitability.
