Calder Associates offers equity growth consulting services designed for the business owner who wants to build a business that can be sold for a premium. These business owners want to focus on strategies that will maximize their sales and profitability in the short term, as well as enhance the valuation of their enterprises in the longer term. Our experience in growing and selling privately held businesses makes us unique in our ability to provide knowledge and insight to help owners grow their businesses with an exit in mind.
The process diagram below overviews core elements of our equity growth consulting process:
Our client engagements can span months or years depending on the needs of the business owner. Our service combines consulting work (business analysis, valuation opinions, strategic plans, etc.) with coaching (facilitation, guidance, advice, problem solving, etc.). We can operate behind the scenes, or we can serve a more visible role inside your organization.
The relationship between a business owner and business coach is unique. Business owners often feel isolated when tough decisions have to be made. A business owner needs a thinking partner — someone who understands them, their business, and their goals; provides honest and unfiltered feedback, and helps weigh options and opportunities without being influenced personally by the impact of the decision.
In order to ensure that you have the information, expertise, advice and discipline to achieve your equity growth goals, Calder Associates provides services that are specifically designed to provide clarity, focus and support. They include:
- The development of an equity growth plan to clarify and prioritize business and personal goals
- Creating a strategic plan to translate the equity growth plan into action
- Equity growth coaching to support you in making critical business decisions that align with the equity growth plan
Calder Associates’ team members have helped owners increase the value of their businesses by up to 50%. Contact us for a confidential discussion about how equity growth coaching can assist you in growing your business and positioning it to sell for premium value.
