Improvement at the speed of thought
How it was
Change is constant, and in these economic times, being able to navigate the ever changing "new normal" ahead of everyone else, is the key to not just survival, but the only way to be successful. With our "magic pill" we are able to give you new insights based on your company's financials, systems and operations, that would allow you to make effective decisions quickly. How would this change your businsess?
How it is
Every business is as unique as the owner(s). Based on our proprietary unbiased Business MRI we have the ability to create your custom transformation and guide the implementation. The Executive Counsellor will become a part of your advisory team and fully engaged and committed to your success. Many of our clients keep us on retainer even after the whole process is completed. Now with the addition of the Brain Business Seminar we can have dramatic impact at the individual level.
Where they are!
More of the same is not enough. As described in Dr. Stolk's Abasia Point Theory and Five Stages of Business Developement for most businesses more sales does not lead to more profit. Collaborating with our clients by combining their business and global best practices and experiences, we help our clients to tranform their businesses to high-performers, rapidly and effectively. Our work does cure PDD (Profit Deficit Disorder)!
ECG is a global executive counselling firm. Collaborating with our clients by offering our combined global best practices and experiences, comprehensive proprietary analysis capabilities across all industries and business functions, we help our clients become high-performance businesses.
Our roots are in both military and academia. This creates the perfect blend of military precision and integrity combined with our business acumen is where we draw our relentless pursuit to ensure our client's maximum success. After all in times of trouble you need people of action. Our clients engage us to analyze, conclude and coach. Never is our work directed by anything other than the best interest of our clients. We require our client’s reach to their maximum potential, understanding that this is most of the time not easy. This is complex and hard work, a careful balance between art and science. Sometimes we work on the front line, sometimes in the background.
The clearest distinction between Consultants and Counsellors is that Consultants 'think, recommend and vision' whilst Counsellors typically 'analyze, think, recommend, vision, act, teach and guide implementation'. Consultants are on the ‘outside’ working in an advisory capacity only; whereas a Counsellor is first on the ‘outside’ using the Business Physical to analyze and then guide on the ‘inside’. A Counsellor is a cross of advisor, teacher, mediator, coach. This means that there is a transfer of knowledge and skills while we work together. We like teaching how to fish instead of making you dependent on having us fish for you.
The Executive Counsellor Guild provide businesses with independent third party analysis of their organizations' operational effectiveness followed by counselling to guide businesses in the steps of improving their business operations and therefore increasing the value of the business e.g. in preparation for sale. Our system is also commonly used to aid the process of selling or buying businesses by not only the owners but also by M&A companies on both buy and sell side. Utilizing our proprietary tools and market knowledge we also advise non-US companies in expanding to the US, and US companies expand to the rest of the world starting right from the beginning.
Our unique approach to business analysis uses a top down and bottom up approach to evaluate business functionality. From the top down, we analyze what it takes for the entire organization to be successfully integrated self sustaining organization. What sets us apart in we not only analyze financial information but additionally also conduct a full operational review and 360's.
From the bottom up, we assess how each component of the organization and all ongoing business activities individually contribute to overall success. Based on our research, we have combined components from in Psychology, Biology, Neurology, Communication and Human Evolution into the Brain Business Seminar, explaining how to use your brain to effect positive change in your business.
Unfortunately conflicts of interest between management, directors, and shareholders are inevitable in today’s complex business structures. ECG can help with independent fairness opinions to help corporate fiduciaries, such as company directors and other involved parties, make informed business decisions in complex situations and improve overall performance.
This seminar discusses the human factor in business, how brain and memory, including how predisposition can stop the conversation before it starts, how memory is fluid and therefore cannot be trusted, and how to use your brain to effect positive change in your business.
