Leadership and Business Growth Specialists
Committed to helping business leaders succeed, ACT One’s real-time experience and research into the challenges facing enterprises today, allows us to tap into the realities of leadership and management – the two hardest aspects of running any business.
What if, as an executive leader, you could accurately predict the barriers that will hinder your company’s growth? As certified business growth specialists, ACT One can help you critically analyze your company, based on unique input from the senior leadership team. You will then be guided to pinpoint the key initiatives that will help you manage the chaos. And be highly profitable.
Imagine being able to reduce the ’employee anxiety’ and create ‘dialogues’ around key indicators that encourage the employee to succeed and address the goals of the company.
ACT One is adept at helping business leaders understand how employees see the company and then align this ’employee’ view with that of the business leaders. By using powerful tools that get employees thinking like ‘owners’ you can change the course of profitability for your company in months, not years.
In laser-like fashion, ACT One will help you align your issues with a well-grounded growth model, the 7 Stages of Growth. This includes setting up a solid financial base, focusing on core competencies, engaging staff and creating key indicators that measure success based on a specific Stage of GrowthTM. ACT One has a number of consulting services to assist you with specific needs that may emerge.
Once you have the leadership team aligned with your critical growth initiatives, it will be important to pay attention to the needs of all employees. Often this requires professional development in the form of a training curriculum, supported by assessments to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses. Whether your company does the training using internal trainers, or ACT One facilitators conduct the training for you, we will help you pinpoint the best use of resources to help meet your challenges for growth.
