“Everyone needs a coach” – Bill Gates
“The difference between a dream and a goal is a plan, don’t be a dreamer” –unknown
The relationship between coach and client is one of trust. The coach will help you develop a plan and give you honest feedback about how you are performing to the plan YOU developed. Having a coach’s feedback gives you an outside perspective and opportunities to grow where YOU decided you want to and to do it faster than possible on your own. Whether you do not know what to do, or you do know but just can’t, don’t, or won’t do it, your coach can help you find clarity and give you the accountability and encouragement to become more successful!

As the Coach/Client relationship is sacred and we take the privacy of those relationships seriously, we can tout some of our consulting projects here:
Client: Wholesale company
Problem: Experiencing fantastic growth, the order pickers could not keep up with the workflow and were missing shipments.
Solution: Evaluated processes and redesigned their warehouse and bin locating system.
Outcome: Company was able to grow from $1M a week to $10M in sales without hiring more warehouse personnel.
Client: Wholesale company
Problem: Experiencing fantastic growth, the company was hemorrhaging money in warranty returns and broken phones were swamping their repair department.
Solution: Evaluated the company’s warranty coverage from their suppliers and developed a warranty recovery process to shift the losses back to the suppliers.
Outcome: The company was able to recover most costs from their suppliers and their repair technicians were able to focus on the profitable task of repairing out of warranty product
Client: Customer Support organization of a manufacturer
Problem: Suppliers revoked Net 30 payment terms due to non-payment for a product already shipped. The client did not show having received the product.
Solution: Evaluated the receiving process and found the product had arrived but had not been received into the system due to some type of error. Developed a bin locating and log process to handle items that could not be received. Developed the process between the receiving department, procurement department, and suppliers to quickly identify and resolve any errors so the product could be received into the system and the suppliers promptly paid.
Outcome: The suppliers extended Net 30 terms again and items that could not be received reduced from a daily average of 173 to a daily average of 7 within 2 months.
Client: A government contractor
Problem: The client was inundated with paperwork and looking at hiring additional personnel that was not budgeted in the program bid.
Solution: Evaluated the contract, policies, and processes. Found the paperwork was duplicative and unnecessary. The paperwork was already stored in a central file with appropriate document retention policies.
Outcome: The company did not have to add another employee and those doing the duplicative tasks could also be more productive. We calculated additional savings of $12,000 a year in printer ink, maintenance, and paper alone!
Client: An aircraft manufacturer
Problem: The company’s customers in their two largest export markets (Europe and S. America) expected the same level of service the company was able to deliver to the U.S. customers. The company spent millions on chartered aircraft when their customer’s aircraft was down for unscheduled maintenance. It often took 3-4 days for parts to arrive in those markets.
Solution: Evaluated locations that could reach the largest number of customers the fastest, tax implications, import/export laws, foreign employment laws, corporate structures, country’s business climate, and corruption scores. Developed European and Latin America distribution plans and helped implement them.
Outcome: The customers were able to receive the same or next-day support, reducing the company’s cost of chartered aircraft by approximately 70%. Customer satisfaction increased significantly and the company saved an estimated $10+M per year.
Client: A manufacturing company
Problem: The company was missing out significantly on a segment of the business, getting only $3M in sales in that segment “on accident”. They did not know how to grow that segment.
Solution: Developed a 5-year strategy to grow sales to that segment and located strategic partners to assist them.
Outcome: The company grew its sales into that segment from $3M a year to $20M a year in the first two years.
Problem: Cash flow/profitability issues
Solution: Evaluated processes and business models. Recommended process changes market positioning changes, and to significantly raise prices. Outcome: Sales went from $750K a year to $2.8M a year and margins from 11% to 28% in one year. The client sold the business and is now a millionaire.
