Helping Leaders Build Great Companies
Helping Leaders Build Great Companies
To help us get acquainted, three quick questions: 1) Do you want to optimize your company’s vision, strategy and execution? 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 operate, grow, scale, and (when ready) exit, great companies.
We do this through:
1) Company Building Solutions
We help leadership teams learn, develop, implement, and benefit from a simple but comprehensive, custom-tailored, software-powered Company Building Solution (CBS) - made exclusively with and for, you. Moreover, your customized CBS, will empower your leadership team and entire organization, to effectively envision, strategize and execute: 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, feedback and growth. We specialize at improving individual and group performance, by helping you develop and nurture new skills, behaviors and competencies - with a focus on Leadership, Management, Teamwork and Accountability.
Now, what's your situation?
If you’re like most companies, chances are looking to grow from good to great (or stay great) with care and confidence, and can utilize/leverage a customized Company Building 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.
At Straticos, our specialization (and purpose/cause/passion) is helping leadership teams, build great companies. 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. And we do this in order to help you build, operate and grow a successful, resilient company. 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 develop and embrace the company, work and life you dream about - we'd love to help make your dream, a reality.
This customized solution is ideal for the senior leadership team (3-7 people) of companies with 10 - 250 employees, and $5M - $250M in annual revenues. The one year (approximately 10-to-12 months) engagement, consists of 2 Phases: Phase 1: Learn, Develop & Implement (3 full-day sessions, with additional support: 6-8 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 Building Solution (CBS). 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 (with $6,500 paid per session), over 10-to-12-months (for a total investment of $45,500). For the record, all solution sessions are 100% guaranteed: If you honestly believe that you did not receive value/benefit after a session is done, don’t pay. And you can cancel your engagement, at anytime.
This solution is for solopreneurs and individual business owners (and if you so choose, an additional person from your company, typically a partner or “second in command”), and you work in tandem with other business owners. To note, you receive the same materials, benefits and support as the single company program, but do so in a group cohort setting. This program requires 8 business owners and/or participants, with a designated “champion” to captain the team and ensure active participation. In this program, all sessions are $1,000 per participant (paid by check in person, at the successful completion of each of your 7 sessions), for a total investment of $7,000 per person. If you have two people attend from the same company, your combined per day session fees are $1,750. Please note: to be fair and cohesive for all participants, if you decide to leave the Cohort Program for any reasons other than medical, you are still responsible for the full one-year payment ($7,000 minus any previous payments). And if you choose to work with Scott after you “graduate” from your one-year program, and you want Scott to facilitate your Quarterly and/or Annual Sessions, you will be charged the single day session fee of $6,500.
These fun, interactive and highly informative leadership team 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 tools and disciplines that will help you to clarify what you do and why you do it, get more done, be more confident, run a stronger company, and live a better life. In addition, participants will understand the reasons and benefits for a custom-tailored Company Building Solution, in order to help you generate: 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, cash flow: higher valuation). These personalized, full-day ($6,500) and half-day ($3,500) workshops are best for leadership teams of 5-10 people. To note, after your workshop is successfully complete, and you choose to enroll in a single company full-year program (see 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 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. To note, our style of 1-1 coaching isn't for everybody. It requires you to be ready, willing and able to be challenged (mentally and emotionally), receive and give constructive feedback, embrace radical candor, elevate self-awareness and self-discovery, step-out of your comfort zone, and do what it takes to be your best. All coaching relationships are in 90-day increments and include two 2-hour in-person sessions every two weeks, over 3 months, @ $2,500 per month (if you are enrolled in a single company program, it is $1,500 per month). In addition, we will also support you as/when needed, by text and phone, throughout our relationship together.
At Straticos, we don't believe in a rigid, inflexible, one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter, franchise approach to "x" operating systems and coaching. That said, we give complete credit where credit is due, and respect/appreciate the fact that there are proven and renowned authors, books, models, concepts, frameworks and solution allies that can 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 were not written and developed for you specifically, and 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 run/operate your company on a book or written literature; you run/operate your company on software, especially software that combines the power (and necessity) of industrial-grade "systems of record," with the flexibility to use the same software in a mobile, hybrid, work-from-anywhere world. And that's why we infuse our proven software with proven principles, and help our clients learn, implement, leverage and benefit from both - in a process-driven, time-spaced, hands-on, programmatic approach.
