“Every great company, brand, career has been built in exactly the same way: bit by bit, step by step, little by little.” – Seth Godin

There are no magic formulas, just a lot of work, a lot of time, and a willingness to do what others are unwilling to do.

We look forward to partnering with you to reach your goals!

CONSULTING

“It’s about your company.  Your business.  Your organization. Your success.  Your quality of life.”

Consulting is getting advice from someone outside of your world.  Someone who can see things differently.  Someone who can add creativity to what you are doing.  Someone who can ask you the tough questions and point out blind spots.  Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, it’s the difference sometimes between a good businesses and a great businesses.

What do you get with business consulting? 

Each opportunity to consult is different.  There is not a one size fits all approach to consulting.  Every organization and business is different and what may work today may not work a month from now.  Consulting with Square One Solutions allows you the ability to pick and choose what you think is most important to you and your business.

Are your team meetings boring and not engaging?  Are you finding it difficult to keep good people on your team?  Then maybe a good fit for you is focusing on culture.  Do you want to get your name out there but you’re not sure how?  Then a focus on marketing and social media is a great start.  Do you need to dig deeper and get to the root of some issues?  An evaluation of all of your systems and strategies may need to be reviewed.  You pick.  You choose.  Remember everything rises and falls on leadership.  As the leader of your organization, you are the lid.  However, you are also the one with the greatest potential to free your team to grow.

COACHING

“Giving up something now for something better later is not a sacrifice.  It is an investment.” – Andy Stanley

The best way to take your business or organization to the next level is to first take your leadership to the next level.  Your business or organization will very rarely ever grow past your own leadership abilities.

This is where Square One coaching comes along side of you and helps you take your leadership to the next level.  You will be provided with leadership materials to further your development.  You will take personality tests to help recognize where your emotional intelligence is and how to leverage and adapt it to situations.

Having someone in your corner who speaks truth into your life and business or organization is sometimes the push needed to go to the next level.

Square One coaching includes a 45-minute coaching call or in person meeting each week depending on location.  It includes regular encouragement, challenges, and goal setting.

Team development includes 1 monthly onsite visit for 1-hour.  It can include one-on-ones with employees of leaderships choosing, as well as additional coaching as requested.

Mission: To help develop owners into leaders.
