It’s not mystical and there are no giant binders to sit on the shelf and collect dust. It’s just a deliberate, well-thought-out plan to get you from where you are to where you want to be.
As businesses grow, they become more complex. It becomes necessary to replace intuition with repeatable, measurable processes that ensure quality, thoroughness and excellent service.
You want to scale, but still feel in control. You want product and service delivery to remain consistent. You want to target and communicate effectively with the best potential customers.
Whether you define succession as preparing the best people for leadership positions or making plans for what will happen when the boss retires, it’s never too early to start planning.
It might seem like there’s plenty of other things to do, but nothing is more important than finding, developing and keeping the right people. And it has to be done at both the individual and team level.
It’s hard being the boss. Everyone is expecting you to deliver all the answers. It’s good to have someone around to act as a sounding board and, when you need it, to provide a different perspective.
You don’t have time for a lengthy planning process – tying up you and your key team members for endless meetings. We know that. We quickly get to the heart of what’s going on in your organization.
It’s hard to make and easy to spend and everyone wants more of it. It requires discipline and understanding to handle it wisely. You need a framework to invest it in a way that accelerates growth.
It’s great to do something you love to do. It’s also incredibly easy to spend time doing things that don’t add value. As the demands on your time increase, it’s essential to choose wisely.
Truthful evaluation, thoughtful options and deliberate actions to move your organization from the current state to the desired state.
A business friend of mine recommended ClearVision Consulting and I could not be more satisfied. Mike sat down with me and my partners multiple times, he listened, he asked questions and he came to understand our business model. He presented us with a detailed proposal and a competitive price and he delivered on both, and he continues to follow up with us. I highly recommend ClearVision Consulting.Diversified Logistics Training Solutions |
We have enjoyed working with Mike. He has helped us bring clarity to our Mission and Vision for the company. His guidance with evaluating our employee development plans and implementing a process has been very helpful and we have gotten good feedback from our employees on the new process. He has helped us stay "on-task" which was needed in order to get this accomplished.Antella Consulting Engineers |

In my work as a business consultant and grad school adjunct professor, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve invoked Dan Pink’s three-point outline from his brilliant 2009 book, Drive. Employees want three things in their work life – Autonomy – the ability to control what they do, how they do it, when they […]
