All too often, a business leader feels as if he is alone on an island. This program not only helps you solve tough business problems, it gives you valuable outside perspective, motivation, and support to help you plan the future of your business and your career while improving your productivity.
This is a self-directed program, and the frequency of our interaction is entirely up to you. Some people call Dave every day. Some folks call once a week. Others call a couple of times a month. Dave returns all phone calls within two hours and all written correspondence within 24 hours.
This is a one-on-one relationship. You speak directly to Dave every time you call.
At the outset of the relationship, you will receive a welcome email with a link to Dave Lorenzo’s online business leadership academy. In this academy, he provides you with professional development courses and foundational business recommendations. These courses are delivered in three formats: Video Programs, Audio Programs and Written Workbooks. The courses are focused on client acquisition, productivity improvement, business strategy and management.
Beginning on day one, you may call with specific questions related to your business. You stay on the telephone with Dave until your questions are answered. The conversation is focused and concise. You receive the information you need as you need it.
This is a self-directed relationship. The frequency of our communication is entirely up to you.
Past discussions have included strategic issues such as:
You and Dave will also work on tactical issues including:
In addition, you and Dave will discuss things that do not require mentoring but warrant confidential dialogue, such as:
If there are no openings when you apply, you will be placed on a “first come, first served” waiting list. When a spot opens up, you and I will reach a mutual decision as to whether the program is right for you.
In this version of the program we choose those areas which are of highest priority and create:
The areas we may deal with include contacting prospects, creating publicity materials, creating a book proposal, writing articles, writing a book, contacting speakers bureaus, creating a web site, following-up on leads, establishing networking events, creating a brand, creating products, etc. We generally choose three or four, we provide a template with specific tasks and completion dates, and we establish formal schedules for those completion dates. The Pathfinder Relationship provides for externally-enforced discipline, in that you are accountable for specific completion activities on certain dates on which we follow-up with you.
The Pathfinder Relationship is recommended for those at any level of their career who feel the need for increased structure, whose intellectual curiosity and talent cause them to wander from task to task prior to completion, and who require more urgency in creating results.
This is an exclusive, customized, highly structured one-on-one coaching relationship directly with Dave Lorenzo. You have six months of scheduled meetings with your own Ivy League business strategist.
Dave will work with you on strategic initiatives (how to set fees, how to negotiate an acquisition or a big business deal, how become more attractive to clients, and how to staff your business) as well as tactics (what to say to close the deal, what content should go into your newsletter and how to overcome resistance).
At the outset of our working relationship, we select the areas that require an immediate impact and we focus on them first. By the end of our third session, we will have developed a detailed action plan with specific completion dates.
Dave fills the role of project manager and he holds you accountable for task completion.
The schedule we set for completion is rigorous and you will be held accountable for your actions.
This option is for people who want to accomplish more in the next six months than they have accomplished in the past six years.
Some of the benefits of the High-Intensity Coaching relationship include:
In the Maximum Intensity Coaching Program Dave Lorenzo gets in your face and is relentlessly dedicated to your success.
In this program, Dave will call you, write to you, and stalk you if he must to help you achieve the specific goals you have agreed upon. These may be strategic (new markets, build the firm, create new brands) and/or tactical (role-play meetings, review presentation tapes, create better proposals).
The coaching program will include:
Here’s the critical advantage with this program: We will work together on pre-determined goals—and may add additional goals—with me providing specifics on what you need to do, reviewing your work, and following up with you, prodding you, and proactively contacting you to generate accelerated progress.
Do you want to create an automated revenue growth system? Develop new web copy? Start and populate a blog? Penetrate a new market? Launch new media presence? Reduce your personal labor intensity? Save more money? Globalize your business or practice? Learn new OD skills? Resolve interpersonal issues undermining your performance? Better deal with your hard-earned success? Improve troubled relationships?
Then this is coaching option for you.
Obviously, I’m taking on very few people at this level. This is an intensive coaching relationship to meet your important short, medium, and long-term business and personal goals.
