Take the Guesswork out of Growth

Our leaders achieve two main outcomes:

  1. Confidently predict future growth of revenue, profit, cash, widgets and people expending less effort and time; three-year rolling forecast.
  2. Optimal enterprise value.

This 6-minute video illustrates our ultimate goal. Create more time and space to predict the future by firing yourself from day to day operations

The Problem

Most businesses fail (66% w/in 10 years, 75 % w/in 15 years, acc. to U.S. SBA), many struggle, and few thrive. In working and speaking with hundreds of CEOs and companies around the world over the past four years, I have found the following, for the most part:

  • We do change wrong
  • We do vision wrong
  • We do people wrong
  • We do teams wrong
  • We do feedback wrong
  • We do innovation wrong
  • We do strategy wrong
  • We do decision making wrong
  • We do hiring wrong
  • We do meetings wrong

Here is why I think this happens:

  1. There is a meaningful gap between what science knows and business does.
  2. Few things truly matter, but those that do matter tremendously. Leaders do not spend enough time here.
  3. Leaders rely too much on effort, luck, timing and force of will to achieve “success”. These do not scale profitably.
  4. Production before Deduction. We do not spend proper time up front which saves time overall. Resist the tyranny of the moment! Dig the well before you are thirsty!

Catalyst Growth Advisors’ goal is to help leaders take the guesswork out of growth. We do that by getting leaders to fire themselves from the day-to-day in order to focus more time on their proper job – confidently predicting the future of the business.
