The Business Tune-up

When is the last time you worked ON your business instead of IN your business? The Business Tune-Up will provide you with valuable insight into managing a successful operation. By sharing my business knowledge and experience, you’ll receive practical advice to real-world problems. We talk about what’s really important to achieving success in a supportive setting.

All of the Business Tune-Up classes include a workbook with detailed information on the subjects covered. The course material is delivered through sharing information, break-out work sessions, and meaningful discussions. During the classes, I take the time to ensure that all participants can apply the lessons to their business. In addition to class time, I’m available by phone or email to answer questions.

If you are a small to medium-size business owner, a manager in a company, or a nonprofit executive The Business Tune-Up will give you the tools you’ll need to go back to your workplace and begin implementing the concepts you’ve learned right away.

The Business Tune-Up Part 2: Creating a three-year vision

It’s hard to get somewhere unless you know where you are going. Developing a three-year vision and using it to create realistic and measurable goals allows you to take a strategic look at the future. My one-day class on creating a three-year vision will provide you the tools to identify exactly want you want to accomplish in your business.

When you have a detailed vision and set of goals that outline what you are trying to build, all the steps that come next, such as planning and execution, fall into place. Once you’ve gone through this visioning process, you will have:

  • A picture of everything you want to accomplish
  • A detailed description of where you want to be in three-years
  • The building blocks to develop a three-year plan

The Business Tune-Up Part 3: Building a three-year plan

There is a common saying “Plan your work and work your plan.” Someone who follows this advice is much more likely to achieve the things he/she wants to do. But planning takes time and practice, and attention to details.

My two-day class on building a three-year plan will provide you the opportunity not only to plan your own goals but to help others plan theirs. Effective planning requires a good structure and takes lots of practice. Many business people don’t take the time necessary to learn good planning habits. In this class you will practice the principles of planning over and over again.

When finished, you will have completed:

  • Plans for two of your goals
  • A step-by-step planning structure that you can use to plan anything
  • A support group of people who have helped you develop your plans
  • Practice helping others with their plans

The cost of the two-day class is $750 and is limited to 8 people. Lunch is provided both days. For more information, please contact us.
