Learning critical leadership and operational capacities.
The key that unlocks profitability and growth in a business.
Having someone in your corner, a sounding board and cheerleader; an expert who has walked the path before.
But…how do you get Momentum?LEARN MORE
You may have many ideas, but nothing written down. You may have plans and strategies – maybe multiple times over. As time passes, you may have lost confidence wondering why you can’t make consistent progress towards your growth.
You may feel that the answers should be obvious, but they aren’t because there is always more to it than you might think and you’re right in the middle of it. These are just a few of the frustrations that come up in conversations with clients.
We created the Momentum Model as a roadmap for growth. In this model, you always know where you are and how far you have to go to reach your goals. The major key is learning how to implement and execute the operational tactics with skills, tools and courage.

“We increased productivity 1.5-2X working with Kirk.”
To grow your business, you want to create velocity that will generate progress – that’s Momentum! But the reality is that after the decision, the questions and actions regarding implementation and execution arise and often that’s the first place you get stuck.
Do you have the capacity to deal with customer growth and demand? Are you faced with too little time, always putting your own progress last? Are you taking the time to think? Are you developing your capacity to predict on a regular basis?
The Momentum Model is a guide by your side. It’s the key ingredient that keeps you moving forward and feeling safe as you execute your plan. You are able to anticipate so you are not blindsided by the unexpected.
Growing requires skills, structure and courage. Learn more
“We went from a fire drill mentality to a planning based atmosphere. It gave us the time to work ON our business”
Growing a business means putting a lot of the right effort up front. One of the problems you might be facing is you are not starting from the beginning – you’re in the business. What worked to grow your business in the past may not be working now. It’s common to have a real sense of frustration and inertia.
What will you do first? What are you greatest areas of need? How can you keep everything flowing without adding extra work for yourself?
With an honest and frank assessment, the structure of the momentum model will give you the data and foundation you need. You are not alone. You get the drive and courage to move business forward.

Creating the conditions that make your business thrive is not a series of random actions. They are carved from the initial assessment and designed into effective decisions and actions.
Do you have an operational strategy? What process do you use for solving problems and making decisions? How do you predict and anticipate?
Making a profit is an intentional endeavor. It requires big picture thinking paired with exquisite attention to detail in the present. The Momentum Model helps you measure, monitor and learn about your unique profit drivers and points of friction.
Profit drivers? Friction? Learn more
LEARN / ADAPT
Often times, we may be generating revenue with no idea if the business is making money. Markets and cycles have changed, but have roles and expectations adapted to those changes? People appear busy, but productivity may be down and effectiveness non-existent.
What markers and indicators are you using now to pinpoint profit drivers? Have you identified the strategic places to place your time and resources for growth?
The momentum model focuses on key operations in which business models produce and capitalizes on that knowledge resulting in growth and profit.

I identify and then work closely with the leadership to create the structures, operational tools and skills that accelerate the velocity of growth and mine the sometimes hidden profit opportunities.
A customary starting point is a business where the leadership has deep skills within their subject matter but much less skill in knowing what needs to be put into place for growth to happen. This is not a sprint; it is a step by step approach that raises the expertise level of the leadership both professionally and personally.
Growth is an exciting and sometimes terrifying adventure that leads those with courage and the ability to take the next step to new levels of expertise and exhilaration as they overcome the challenges along the way.

“When we were crazy and frazzled, and reverting to bad habits, you brought us back to the good ones.”
My best clients are business owners with a deep level of expertise in their subject matter but less in the operational and strategic areas of growing a business. They have made a commitment to themselves and their business to grow and are unsure of the appropriate next steps. They are explorers and leaders who are committed to their craft and realize they will benefit from the experience and deep knowledge of an adviser who has traveled this road and can guide and ease them to their destination.
The biggest challenges to growth aren’t typically taught in school. They are: how to create the momentum for growth, identifying and leveraging the profit drivers unique to that business, recognizing patterns and identifying the small steps that taken daily result in what looks to others as overnight success.
Still more significant aspects that cannot be neglected are: a higher level of leadership skill, habit changes, installing systems that create flow and save time, the art of decision making, and finally awareness raised to an entirely new level.
