FRom chaos to clarity…

IMPLEMENT A SIMPLE, PROVEN FRAMEWORK
WHICH GROWS YOUR PEOPLE AND, MOST IMPORTANTLY, YOUR BUSINESS.

IS IT Lonely in the Corner Office ???

Is your organization growing? Is it growing profitably?
Are you identifying, courting, and keeping the right customers?
Are your people on the same page, using the same playbook, doing the right things?
Are you attracting, hiring and keeping the right people in the right roles in the first place?
Is your leadership team a source of your future extinction or greatness?

How do you know???

The gap between extinction and greatness is smaller than you think.

Would you like to build your business on a framework that delivers the type of results which will make you confident in your business again?

I’ve been there!

For more than 30 years, I’ve been involved with growing businesses — as an investor, intrapreneur, entrepreneur, consultant, and coach. My operational experience includes executive leadership, investment management, business development and sales, with an early career in software development, pharmaceuticals, and venture capital.

I’ve held start-up roles in retail, energy, consulting, software, and business services. I’ve been both a VC investor and a VC-backed CEO (with an exit) and I understand the demands on the investor as well as the entrepreneur. I’ve participated in M&A transactions and integrations, raised investment capital, and sat on private Boards.

I’ve led rapid growth, with crazy hiring plans, a dozen-plus sales offices, and launching new offerings — while thinking “hitting the numbers” and the growth would never end. My team and I took a business unit from $34mm to $59mm year-on-year for an established telecom business, with an increase in bookings of 72% over prior-year production levels.  I’ve partnered to start businesses from scratch and saw them take off to more than $3mm revenues in three years.

I’ve also resized teams and led during stagnant growth and shrinking markets. I’ve operated cash-starved businesses and learned the hard lessons of negative cash flow.  In one role, I simultaneously laid off 300 people (many of whom I’d recently hired), sold millions of dollars in customer contracts, and closed 13+ operating centers in less than a year while my unvested founding shares fell from $37 a share to zero. 

So, I’ve earned some victories and some scars. (Funny, there’s a lot more to learn from the scars!)

Now, as a Pinnacle Guide, I help entrepreneurial leaders learn and leverage a proven organizing framework to plan, lead and operate successful and sustainable businesses that continue to grow, year after year.

And, the good news is you don’t need to struggle alone or reinvent the system.  I will help you implement simple, proven methods to empower your team, delete chaos, earn more, and to have you falling back in love with your business.

Doug joins Dave for an engaging discussion of leadership.

The Pinnacle Principle

People

Surrounding yourself with the right people is a necessity. To embark on this journey, you’ll need to carefully select your team. Pick people who will help raise you up, and remove people who slow you down. A unified team working toward a common goal will always get further than even the most motivated individual.

The Pinnacle Principle

Purpose

The climb to the top requires some serious thinking. You have to figure out what you’re really all about, and what makes you different. How do you stand out from the crowd? What are you bringing to the table that nobody else can provide? What story are you telling with your work? This insight will help to develop the strategy you need for the journey.

The Pinnacle Principle

Playbook

“Just wing it” is bad advice when scaling a mountain, and it’s bad advice for business. Developing a clear-cut plan for everything you do will keep things running smoothly. Devise a strategy for business operations, meetings, and everything else you do, and keep it consistent.

The Pinnacle Principle

Performance

Actions really do speak louder than words. Even the best plan is useless without follow-through. You don’t have to get it all done in a day, but focus on incremental improvement and keep track as it happens. Only consistent practice can lead to exceptional performance.

The Pinnacle Principle

Profits

A great strategy builds momentum over time, continuing to get better, faster, and cheaper. With the right people, a clearly defined purpose, a detailed playbook, and consistent performance, profits are nearly inevitable. Sir Edmund Hillary once said, “It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.” (And as one of the first people to climb Mt. Everest, we think he’d know.)

Build your business stronger than ever, regardless the economic climate.

The formula to success: the Pinnacle Principle

People + Purpose + Playbook + Performance = Profits
