Business Acumen Training
Too many people “in” business don't “get” business. That's where we come in. Our strategy, finance, and business acumen training courses teach leaders to improve performance, make bolder more profitable decisions, and outperform the competition.
Ask your CEO…
Do your employees consistently make the right strategic bets?
Here's the honest answer…
They don't. Many people spend more than a hundred thousand dollars on an MBA without learning to pull all the pieces of the puzzle together. Many more think understanding their business end-to-end is someone else's job. And, according to Harvard, 95% of employees don't understand their company's strategy. Ooof!
This mission-critical solution, based on the book Seeing the Big Picture by Kevin Cope, instills this deep understanding of how all the moving pieces of your company work together so your employees can better align their efforts and decisions to benefit your bottom line – they will think and act more like owners. CEOs, rejoice!
Ask your CFO…
What is a lack of business acumen costing you?
Can every team member explain your company's money-making process in such a way that inspires and engages people? If not, you’re losing money.
In an effort to create more impact, employees have become increasingly specialized. You likely have experts in sales and marketing, HR, operations, finance, and every other division and department across your company who are pros in their respective fields but don't understand your business drivers. In other words, they're myopic.
Think about it. How many decisions are made too quickly or not quick enough? How many of your employees don’t understand what your CEO talked about on your last earnings call? Uh… because they didn't listen to it. How many of your leaders would rather have a root canal than a discussion about financial statements?
What are you waiting for?
Not understanding business is costing you business. So let's get going!
Lectures from your finance department or Professor Stuffy aren't going to cut it. And don't even get us started on board games and generic simulations – your people deserve better. You need to follow a process that not only develops new skills but reinforces those skills and holds people accountable for using them.
