What’s KILLING Your Profitability?
Organizations of all sizes invest significant amounts of time, money, and energy on improving their processes with hopes of becoming more profitable. Sometimes this is based on a goal of becoming best-in-class but sometimes it is just to stay competitive with customers or in attracting talent. All too often though, the things that can have the most immediate impact on profitability (as well as the lives of everyone involved) are overlooked or completely written off because those things are considered to be intangible… What are those things? Those are the skills needed to build an organizational culture that produces world class results and make the best people in your respective industry beg to be part of your team! Those skills tie back to a word that’s frequently misused: leadership…
There’s never a shortage of issues demanding your attention. If you genuinely care about running a profitable company, the investment you make into becoming an effective leader and building a team of solid leaders around you will yield a higher return on investment than any other thing I’ve seen. And that investment alone will play a critical role in driving better results in any other initiative your team puts in place!
We can’t be that person who has a title and believes that automatically makes you the leader. For more than twenty years, I’ve heard John Maxwell say that “Leadership is influence. Nothing more, nothing less.” A title may carry authority but that will never yield the results over the long haul that only comes from genuine influence. The challenge is that it can seem harder on any given day.

Interested in Capturing Your Lost Profitability - with a group of your peers?
Our exclusive mastermind group study guides participants through an in-depth, chapter by chapter look at each profitability killer and provides a unique opportunity to benchmark and share best practices with a peer group.
What's a mastermind group all about? In Think & Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill explained it like this:
The coordination of knowledge and effort between two or more people who work towards a definite purpose in a spirit of harmony… No two minds ever come together without creating a third, invisible, intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind (the master mind).
This is a yearlong engagement, meeting once monthly over lunch to work through an intense look at each chapter in What's Killing Your Profitability? and identify the specific action steps you can apply with the team you lead to ensure the skills discussed are anything but touchy-feely...
Registration includes a signed paperback copy of the book, participation on all twelve in-person sessions, and unlimited access to the digital companion course for throughout the process.
