Monthly Full-Day Training Sessions

These monthly, full day training sessions are designed to educate and move the leadership team forward with their “big rocks” and initiatives. During these sessions we will also complete 1 of the 12 monthly training modules listed below to help build the leadership team’s knowledge and capabilities.

Appendix A

All organizations run best when the correct decisions are made in the following areas:

  1. People: Build your team’s performance
  2. Strategy: Build a business model that is profitable and drives growth.
  3. Execution: Stay focused and implement all the critical elements of your strategy.
  4. Cash: Keep a strong cash flow to drive growth.

We call these the “Four Decisions™”.

In pursuit of your goals, we will teach you to identify them clearly in order to prepare you to develop and implement your “One Page Strategic Plan.” Your long-term business goals and the required short term actions will then be aligned.

As you develop your One Page Strategic Plan, we’ll guide you to identify company’s particular requirements in the areas of People, Strategy, Execution, and Cash. In preparation for potential business growth opportunities, we’ll provide training to help you identify the essential skills and knowledge needed to make the most of these opportunities. We’ll also take note of any knowledge gaps that may arise during this process and educate you on how to identify and rectify them.

What People Are Saying About our Scaling Up™ Course:

I lead a COO group in Calgary and we welcome a new speaker each month to share some relevant topics with us in a limited time. Ken was a stand out from the last few years for sure! He is one of the few who scored highly from all members on his passion for his material, the level of the content and his skill and expertise to deliver the content in a meaningful way. We loved what he shared so much we bought the book and are using it as a discussion point at our annual retreat. I would highly recommend bringing Ken into your group of leaders to shift their thinking and truly understand the simple and powerful steps for execution.
