Are You and Your Business struggling to stay on top…
a sitting duck for the competition? (and an economic downturn…)
- Frustrated that your business seems to have plateaued – knowing it can achieve more?
- Struggling to capture new sources of profit, handle the increased pace of business?
- Losing sleep because you think you may be wasting time and money – trying to grow top line?
- Agonizing over the lack of focus, new customers and new products?
- Feeling stuck in the job, no longer enjoying the work?
- Working more hours and making less money as a result of the business under-performing?
- At the end of your rope – stressed out, burned out and losing focus?
Roughly 90% of companies fail to hit their growth targets. And in a survey of 4400 Senior Leaders: over 50% did not think they had a winning strategy. Many believe it is harder to make money today, than it was 5 years ago – and it will get even harder…
WHAT WE DO:
We help Business Owners, CEOs and Executives DOUBLE their Profit, Sales and Value of their Company.
WE HELP CLIENTS IN 5 WAYS:
- We help construct a durable platform for growth to DOUBLE Profit, Sales & Business Value.
- We help define and execute the highest potential, lowest risk bottom- & top-line growth opportunities.
- We help carve out a Differentiated Marketing Position – Out-Think, Out-Market, Out-Sell your competitors.
- We help Strengthen Leadership and the Foundation of your Company.
- We help optimize your business to become more profitable, productive, easier to run and less dependent upon you the leader.
WHAT WE BELIEVE:
Businesses are leaking profitability through weak, outdated strategies and complacency – thinking they can’t or don’t need to change.
Low profitability, slow growth and weak cash flow, leads to a business of low value and a place where you don’t control your future.
Instead of drowning in the Red Ocean – where competition and following the leader leads to stagnation – it’s better to create your own Blue Ocean.
- Gain awareness, clarity & focus on where & how to grow
- Expand your Customer base, inject new growth into existing products
- Create a steady stream of new products & business opportunities
- Enhance Sales conversion, Marketing effectiveness & ROI
HOW WE’RE DIFFERENT:
We attack the growth challenge from a comprehensive approach – Strategy, Marketing & Sales, Operations, People, Systems and Finance, to reduces cost and get faster results. We focus first on profitability, then scale or work on growing the top line.
There’s one thing we do – and that’s growing the profitability and value of your company.
Step 1: first improve the bottom line without spending a dime on Marketing or increasing sales volume.
Step 2: then move on to profitably grow the business.
The goal: double the profit, sales and value of your company.
As a side benefit, we help extremely busy leaders create 4 extra hours within their workweek to use for planning, strategizing and building their team so they can control their future and retain their best talent.
Utilize a comprehensive approach to address the challenges of declining profitability, flattening sales which lead to erratic cash flow and static company value.
What would doubling profit, sales and company value, while creating an extra 4 hours per week mean for you and your business?
We also specialize in working with small to mid-sized Aerospace and Industrial companies.
We utilize world-class, proprietary & globally proven systems, a no-nonsense approach that exponentially increases both near & long-term tangible results. It has helped BAE Systems, Transdigm, Ultra Electronics, DDC and Spartan Motors to name a few.
Properly balanced and running on all cylinders?
Many times, these entrepreneurs and business leaders don’t know that what’s missing is the “balance” among the elements of their business. Businesses get into trouble when they fail to recognize that to be successful, a harmony of disciplines must be in place to carry the enterprise over the numerous (and often unforeseen) challenges they will inevitably face. Using an automotive metaphor, they need the “Six Cylinders of a High-Performance Business”.
Think of a race car with a six?cylinder engine. When it’s running properly, the driver need not pay much attention. But, if one or two of those six cylinders isn’t firing properly, how do you think the engine will perform? Pretty badly, if it even runs at all! Even though the other four or five cylinders are working perfectly! The end result is a car that is inefficient and struggling to keep pace with the leaders. No chance of winning the race – and a good chance it won’t even finish.
A business is no different. If it’s not running on all its “cylinders”, it’s usually not a fun place to be. It’s firefighting the “crisis du jour”, growth that has stalled, poor margins, cash crunches, problem employees, too many hours, etc. No wonder the business struggles to move ahead.
Sound familiar?? Well, then perhaps one should look at the “cylinders” of the business! So, what are these cylinders? And how should they look? The ”cylinders” are:
- Marketing & Sales
And the interesting thing about these “cylinders” is that they are the same in every business. That’s right! Whether you sell wood cabinets, medical services or make engine computers, they are always the same.
Time for a Tune-Up?
Face it: Where you are in your business today, successful or unsuccessful, happy or unhappy, rich or poor, is the result of the very best thinking and effort you’ve been able to put forth. So, if you aren’t quite satisfied with where you are, you need to recognize that a different outcome can only come about through change. And change isn’t easy when you’re doing it alone.
To assist the business owner, many coaching and consulting firms offer specialty services individually (marketing services, accounting, sales training, executive coaching, etc.). However, it’s rare in the real world of business, that expertise in one discipline is sufficient to provide an enterprise the best possible results.
When you attack a problem on a single front, you’d better hope it works. However, in the hyper-competitive world of today’s business, ‘Hope” is not a winning strategy.” When you attack a problem on multiple fronts using proven, tested methods, the chances of near-term, dramatic success increase exponentially.
What most businesses really need is the help of an expert, seasoned business generalist who can take a “top-level” view of their situation, and offer practical guidance, customized for each individual situation. This comprehensive approach reduces cost, improves communication, ensures synchronization of effort and gets faster results.
Our advice is results-oriented, practical, proven, easy-to-understand and implement. It is based upon experience gained in a broad range of industries and business enterprises of all sizes, from startups to turnarounds and from small, closely-held businesses to multinational, public conglomerates. We provide a comprehensive range of services, including growth & profitability strategies, marketing program development, sales training, executive skills training to name a few.
And, unlike other, narrowly-focused coaching and consulting firms, Kohler Consulting Group has the breadth of experience to tackle the entire range of business disciplines, from strategic planning to marketing to operations to finance, sales, team building, systems, ownership transition, and much, much more.
Tune your business to “Lead the Field” – and win your race!
