Create a healthy organization that attracts and retains the best talent with custom roadmaps from Vertical Elevation
When you founded your company or joined the executive team, you had dreams of building a successful, thriving business with talented team members working together toward a shared vision. But when you look around the company now, it’s not running like you imagined it would.
Departments are growing out of alignment – causing friction and eventually leading to turnover of key positions. The executive team has different ideas of what should be done first, while team members are frustrated with the mounting workload every time someone else leaves. The company is losing money and time.
You start focusing on replacing the open positions and naturally turn to recruiting. The problem is, if you haven’t created a talent-centric organization, then turnover becomes a never-ending battle. Recruiting is just a band-aid that never addresses the underlying problems. You have to get to the core issues that you may not even recognize yet.
We’ll get to know your goals and make sure we’re the right fit
After nearly 30 years working with hundreds of start-ups and large companies, we’ve witnessed just about every mistake it’s possible to make, so we’ve built a process that we customize to your needs and requirements, to help you avoid costly mistakes and get your business into alignment. Though our depth of experience is in the tech sector, our process is industry-agnostic. We could be a fit for you, even if you’re not in high tech. Schedule a discovery call to find out.
We understand how frustrating it can be when your company isn’t running like you want it to and key employees keep leaving. You can’t put your finger on exactly what it is, but something’s not right. And the stress (and workload) keeps increasing for everyone involved when you have to replace key members of your team, but you can’t find the right fit.
We’ve seen the negative impact caused by “run-of-the-mill” recruiters or “just-got-my-certificate” coaches. Rather than reactively losing millions of dollars every time another key employee leaves, we’ll help you proactively create a talent-centric organization that allows you to build the team you need so you can focus on increasing profits and doing great work.
It starts with leadership and the powerful work accomplished by executive coaching and strategic planning with Vertical Elevation. This isn’t a woo woo, feel-good counseling session. This is real, straight shooting, ask questions until we get to the root cause type of work. This is 30 years of experience and insight working with you to discover blind spots and illuminate answers you didn’t even know were there.
Often, company leaders – though incredibly smart and talented – are operating with blind spots that hinder progress. Unless a trusted source helps you discover the blind spots, the same problems continue to happen over and over, leading to decline and ultimately costing your company too much money.
Once we uncover the blind spots, we can put strategies in place to prevent them from limiting you and your business.
