Why hire GrowthMine?
Competence. We know what it takes to build growth companies. As successful executives, as entrepreneurs, and now, as consultants, we have guided growth companies through every stage of growth from start-up to market leadership. What we know about business growth is the product of our experiences, observations, and analysis of the patterns and problems of growing a business. We know what works and what doesn’t.
Perspective. Companies often grow themselves into problems and they are unable to pinpoint the causes. GrowthMine gives organizations a new perspective, bringing the big picture into focus. This helps pinpoint key organizational issues and their causes so you can focus your efforts on solving the right things.
Objectivity. It’s extremely difficult to look at your business in an objective way when you are intimately involved and emotionally invested in it. You can be to be too close to a problem to solve it. We bring much-needed objectivity and a fresh set of eyes to the situation. We will not always tell you what you want to hear – but it will be what you need to know.
Focus. We understand that to be successful, organizations must learn to focus on only the most important things. By focusing on the critical and ignoring the insignificant, we help organizations develop their own roadmap to guide them point-by-point along the most direct path from where they are to where they want to be.
I’ve never worked with a consultant – how does it work?
We use a systematic approach to identify business and organizational issues impacting growth, develop solutions to overcome them, and work with the CEO and the management team to implement those solutions. We often play a variety of roles – as leaders, strategists, mentors, advisors, and/or facilitators.
Our work with clients is highly collaborative and focused on taking a company to the next level of growth. We ask the hard questions and help you find the right answers. Together, we will develop a “roadmap” – what needs to be done and how to get there.
Why is GrowthMine different?
We focus exclusively on the unique challenges facing growing companies. GrowthMine provides solutions based on our knowledge, experience, and leading expertise in business growth. We understand the changes that companies go through as they grow, the obstacles they will encounter, and what must be done at each stage of a company’s growth.
We shun ridiculous theory, buzzwords, jargon, and complicated charts in slick PowerPoint decks. We focus only on getting our clients from point A to point B as quickly and painlessly as possible. There is nothing theoretical about it.
GrowthMine combines experience, an exclusive focus on growth company challenges, and a collaborative approach to provide a unique advisory service for growth company leaders.
What can we expect from working with GrowthMine?
Working with GrowthMine gives you the knowledge, skills, and strategies you need to develop, repeat, and sustain business growth. We have a proven record of helping CEOs and management teams become more effective leaders, improve the performance of their organizations, and achieve sustained profitable growth.
We are fiercely committed to our clients’ success. Our business model is based on an idea that we think should be obvious – that a consultant should be judged based on the results of the client. For this reason, we work with a limited number of clients at any point in time, so we are able to focus our attention on delivering solutions that make sense and get measurable and meaningful results for you and your business. It’s not rocket science. But it is unique.
Do you work with organizations outside the U.S.?
Yes. What matters anywhere, matters everywhere. As we introduce GrowthMine to new geographies, we find there are no borders. With all due respect to the social and geopolitical differences of each culture, we’re working with the problems of growth companies, which translate across the world.
Growing companies face similar challenges; they just don’t realize it. A CEO for a fast-growth company in Singapore doesn’t realize that a CEO for another fast-growth company in Dallas faces the same series of issues, decisions, and challenges.
How do I know if I need outside help?
There comes a time when growing your company means seeking outside expertise. If you don’t feel good about the direction of your company, or would like to take your company to the next level of growth and development, you might want to consider working with GrowthMine.
