To help us get acquainted, three quick questions: 1) Do you want to optimize your company’s vision, strategy and productivity? 2) Would you like to maximize your time, talent and teamwork? 3) Are you passionate about leadership, growth and prosperity?
Hopefully, your answers are all yes.
If they’re not, best of luck to you.
If they are, let’s see if we can help.
At Straticos, we empower leadership teams to effectively envision, run, scale and (when ready) exit, great companies.
We do this through:
1) Company Operating Solutions
We help leadership teams learn, develop, implement and benefit from a simple but comprehensive, custom-tailored, software-powered Company Operating Solution (COS) - made exclusively with and for, you. Moreover, your customized COS, will empower your leadership team and entire organization to effectively plan, document and deliver; with efficiency, accuracy and confidence.
2) Business + Executive Coaching
Our constructive, empathy-based approach to personal and professional development, is geared to generate awareness, insights, action and results. We specialize at improving company and individual performance, by helping you identify, learn and leverage new skills, strategies, disciplines - with a focused emphasis on Leadership, Management, Teamwork and Healthy Accountability.
Now, what's your situation?
If you’re like most companies, you're looking to grow from good to great (or stay great) with care and confidence, and can utilize and leverage a customized Company Operating Solution, along with trusted and experienced Business + Executive Coaching, to help you:
+ clarify and achieve your goals/plans
+ minimize challenges and frustrations
+ maximize output, income and impact
If you are genuinely committed to optimizing your performance in business, work and life ... and as important, be the leaders and leadership team that your company, families and community deserves ... then we'd appreciate the opportunity, to see if we’re a great fit for working together.
Our focused specialization (and purpose/cause/passion), is helping business owners and leadership teams, run great companies. And along the way, be the best versions of themselves, at work and life. Since 2001 and over 250+ client engagements (and counting), Straticos has been developing and continuously refines, a trusted and proven approach to helping leaders learn and leverage the right/best strategies, competencies, skills and disciplines that it takes to be effective and accountable. We do this in order to help you build, operate and grow a successful, resilient company ... and enjoy an optimum work/life balance.
Starting with your specific situation, objectives and needs in mind - we will work together to define the best vision, plans and structure; empower the right people, processes and production; accentuate focus, execution and accountability; and equip you with a custom-tailored solution to help ensure you are getting the results you want, in the most effective way possible.
To note, we are not for everyone (just like you). Candidly, if you are not ready, willing and able to embrace lasting positive change, challenge your status quo, and be/do your best with how you think, work and behave - then we're probably not a good fit. That said, if you are open-minded, growth-oriented, coachable and yearn to build, develop and embrace the best business, work and life that you dream about - we'd love to help make your dream, a reality.
We don't believe in (or condone) a rigid, inflexible, one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter, franchise approach to "x" operating systems and coaching. That said, we give credit where credit is due, and we respect and appreciate the fact that there are proven and renowned authors, books, models, concepts, tools and frameworks that can/will be leveraged.
And we do leverage the best-of-the-best materials and partnerships - along with our own experience/expertise starting, operating, buying and selling successful companies. But we do so with our clients' needs first and foremost, because: 1) Every book, model and concept is inherently flawed, given the fact that they are inevitably dated, generic and not written and developed for you specifically; 2) Every company and business owner is unique, and your situation, needs and objectives are unique, as well. So why be limited and constrained to just one provider?
In addition, we also believe that you can't actually operate your company on a book, name or literature (let alone an acronym). You operate your company using a proven, cloud-based software platform that combines the features, functions and benefits of a great Company Operating Solution (COS), with the needs/merits of an industrial-grade System of Record, and the flexibility to use the software in a mobile, hybrid, work-from-anywhere world.
And that's why we infuse our proven software platform with proven tools and principles - to help our clients learn, implement, leverage and benefit from both - in a process-driven, time-spaced, hands-on, programmatic approach.
This custom solution is ideal for the senior leadership team (3-8 people) of companies with 25- 250 employees, and $25M - $250M in revenues. The one year (approximately 10-to-14 months) engagement, consists of 2 Phases:
Phase 1: Learn, Develop & Implement (3 full-day sessions, with additional support: 6-10 weeks in duration), and Phase 2: Leverage, Validate & Enhance (4 full-day sessions, with additional support: 10 months in duration). Phase 1 consists of 3 full-day, hands-on, in-person workshop sessions, whereby you and your leadership team members will effectively learn, develop, implement, initiate, and start to benefit from your custom-tailored, software-powered Company Operating Solution (COS).
At the same time, through a mix of Business + Executive Coaching, you will also learn and actualize proven concepts, principles and disciplines that it takes to optimize your performance in business, work and life. At the conclusion of Phase 1, you and your leadership team will be equipped with the software platform, tools, plan, playbook and knowledge that will help you guide, run, build and grow a successful, resilient company. Phase 2 includes meeting every 90 days for two one full-day Quarterly Planning & Development Sessions, along with meeting for a 2-day Annual Planning & Development Session. All of these sessions include a blend of business reviews, analysis, strategizing, learning, skills development and team building.
Combined, there will be a total of 7 full-day sessions, over a 9-to-14-month period. In addition to your sessions and as part of your solution/investment, we will also conduct semi-annual, 90–120 minute 1-1 Executive Coaching Sessions, with each member of your Senior Leadership Team (SLT). We will also attend/coach 2-3 of your weekly SLT meetings, over the course of the first-year engagement. To note, in addition to these scheduled sessions and meetings, we are available on an as-needed basis, to assist you by text, phone or Zoom.
For the record, all of our sessions are 100% guaranteed: If you do not feel that you received value or have issues with anything, you don’t pay - and you can cancel your engagement at anytime.
These fun, interactive and highly informative customized strategic workshops, provide: 1) Perspective & Insights: Look at yourself and your company in a new and different way - in order to create a context that helps you optimize your vision, strategy and execution, and gain more awareness and control in/on your company. 2) Tools & Disciplines: Provide simple, practical, proven strategies, tools and disciplines that will help you to clarify what you do and why you do it, get more done, be more confident, run/grow a stronger company, and live a better life.
Participants will learn and assess, the essential requirements, attributes and benefits for running a great company: Healthy Accountability (no more wishy washy; trust but verify); More Control (get, be and stay completely in charge; for real); Greater Production (consistent efficiency and effectiveness); Less Issues (minimize distractions, headaches and heartaches); Extra Time (the freedom to do what you want, when you want); Better Focus (no more distractions and “flavor of the month”); Great People (put/develop/keep the right people, in right seats); Proven Processes (design, standardize and optimize your operating procedures); Expectations Delivered (commitments become agreements); Strong Profit (better sales, margins and cash flow: higher valuation).
To note, after your workshop is successfully complete, and you choose to enroll in a full-year solution (see details above), your first of seven sessions, will be reduced by 50%.
By focusing on your personal and professional situation, needs and aspirations - in unison with your organizations' goals and requirements - our 1-1 co-active coaching (which blends the best-of business, executive, performance, and life coaching), develops current and potential leaders of any age or vocation, to deliver the performance, productivity and results that you and your company want, cherish and deserve: in work and life.
FYI: our style of coaching isn't for everybody. It requires you to be ready, willing and able to be challenged (mentally + emotionally), receive and give constructive feedback, embrace radical candor, elevate self-awareness and self-discovery, step-out of your comfort zone, and be what it takes to do your best work, and live your best life.
All coaching relationships are in 90-day increments and include two 2-hour in-person sessions every two weeks, over 3 months. In addition, we will also support you by text, phone and Zoom. BTW: as a partner with COhatch, we have several session locations to choose from. In addition, we also enjoy meeting over a good beverage, a nice meal, or a brisk walk; so preference and location TBD.
