Executive & CEO Coaching
Smart Business Doctor provides executive and CEO coaching through sessions and strategies to improve efficiency, productivity, and accountability in your business.
Improving Leadership Skills
Executive coaching is a professional relationship between a trained coach and a client (who may be an individual or a group) with the goal to enhance the client’s leadership or management performance and development.
Business leaders who work with an executive coach can benefit by having an experienced accountability partner who assists them with effective leadership, optimal performance, and career advancement, as well as weaknesses and challenges. Executive/CEO coaching is a two-way relationship between the business owner/executive and the coach. It is future centric and works from the position of conversation, using questioning techniques and deep listening, to increase the executive’s self-awareness and self-accomplishment in professional relationships, skills, ways of thinking, and being.
Coaching can be an integral part of a learning organization. In a fast-paced environment, high performing individuals are expected to have keen technical skills and exhibit strong leadership, ownership, and accountability behaviors. When business leaders drive performance from leadership, ownership, and accountability, they are better positioned to make decisions, interact with and lead teams, and provide world-class customer service.
My brothers and I were blown away by the (take charge) approach to solve our productivity problems. The attention to detail by the Smart Business Doctor staff, was more than we could have ever expected. Even my job description was changed, and I am working in the business, contributing in a much better way. The greatest benefit we received is that because our labor costs are much lower, we are more competitive with our bids and we have started to pick up more work and more customers. On behalf of our entire family, we appreciate all you have done.
When Smart Business Doctor first conducted the ‘Business Assessment’ I really did not think my business had very many problems, once I saw, the type of tools I was missing to track my financial status, it was a real eye opener as to, how far off track my business was. The Smart Business Doctor project director, who provided us with the systems and controls to help us take our company to a high level of professionalism and credibility was amazing. Their consult absolutely changed the morale and integrity of our office staff, and assisted in building a more trusting relationship with our bank…thank you, to all the Smart Business Doctor geniuses that saved my company.

Bottom line, Smart Business Doctor probably kept me from BIG TROUBLE, or saved me from multi-million dollar lawsuits, my business was totally out of control, I had so much liability exposure and I was running scared that I would never be able to get my arms around my problems. I had no systems in place and what money I was making, was totally, by mistake. Jeff, the Project Director taught me how to be a businessman, taught me how to take control of my business, taught me how to manage. Without him, who knows where I would be today. Smart Business Doctor is not cheap, but worth every penny I paid, and I receive a return on my dollar spent, every day.
When we considered bringing on Smart Business Doctor for advice, I was not quite sure that we could improve the bottom line at all. I was very worried about employee morale. I did not want to let any employees go or compromise are good status and great reputation. The management quickly saw issues from a different point of view. We would have never thought of these remedies. We are now able to continue as before, but with a much better profit margin.
We at Smart Business Doctor, LLC. believe that business owners grow their businesses, year in and year out, and simply adjust to the growth the best they know how, however, in many ways, they…”shoot from the hip”…when it comes to true leadership. Managing a company that may now be double the size from 10 years ago means that you, as the business owner, may not have been taught and trained on how to provide the type of leadership skills that is required with a more sizeable company, with many more employees.
Lack of strong leadership can be costly to a company. Very often the last person to recognize the need… is the business owner.
