When you work on these areas - in a focused, agile and intentional way - prosperity is inevitable
Your first step is a decision. Will you be a business first family? Or a family first business?
Purpose acts as a north star - guiding every decision you make and action you take as a company.
True alignment comes from incorporating everyone's dreams so that your success and theirs is the same
Catalytic leaders are agile. They bring the future forward and inspire everyone around them to greatness.
Companies run well when roles are filled with qualified people who fit the culture and are fairly compensated
Accountability and Trust work hand-in-glove. Strengthen one and you'll strengthen the other.
SYSTEM FOR MANAGING
Ensure that your growth is profitable with a strategy that takes both revenue and expenses into account
Leaders will leave at some point. Plan for succession to the next generation or sale of the business.

Ferguson has helped us align our leadership team and install a system for management.
Rob’s approach to training is excellent. He brings practical and current information from his interactions with other CEOs and executives – not just “ivory tower” thinking or dated ideas. Rob’s training sticks beyond the initial enthusiasm.
He’s given us tools for navigating change where the pressure is taken off people and placed on the process.

Our process for working together
We begin each engagement with an assessment and discovery process.
Our goal is to find the opportunities in where you are now and where you want to go.
In the preparation stage we create a solution road map - a prioritized plan with a sequence of steps.
As the client, you will choose which direction you want to go.
For each item in the solution road map, we follow what we call our "system for management" - an established schedule for getting things done: planning, executing, reporting, improving and forecasting.
Each year, the decision is the same: do we want to grow? Or is it time to exit?
If the decision is to grow, we circle back to the discovery phase to determine the opportunities.
If you choose to exit, you can either transition your company to the next generation by implementing your succession plan - or you can begin the M&A process to sell your business.
