Mastering the Rockefeller Habits

What You Must Do to Increase the Value of Your Growing Firm

Author Verne Harnish, founder of Gazelles International, has created an extensive advisory board of well known thought leaders in business fundamentals including Jim Collins, Patrick Lencioni, Bob Bloom, and Daniel Pink, to name only a few.  In his book “Mastering the Rockefeller Habits,” Verne has compiled the best practices from all of these sources.  It is the basis of the Gazelles Four Decisions Planning and Execution Models.

Four Decisions

One Page Strategic Plan

The Gazelles One Page Strategic Plan is the culmination of the four critical business decisions (People, Strategy, Execution, Cash) that growth companies must get right to maximize their revenue, profit and time. The Gazelles One Page Strategic Plan helps management teams get aligned, focused, and accountable, working with purpose toward common goals.

Here are the Four Decisions:

People-Icon_Black PEOPLE – Is everyone in your company pulling their own weight and contributing as they should? If you had to start the company all over tomorrow, would you enthusiastically rehire everyone on your team
Strategy-Icon_Black STRATEGY – Do you have a solid top-line revenue growth strategy in place? The key to sustainable top line growth is three-fold: knowing your core customer, developing a clear brand promise, and developing your BHAG™ for sustainable revenue growth.
Execution-Icon_Black EXECUTION – One common challenge that quietly sneaks up on successful growth companies is the subtle transition from excellent, precise execution to passivity, complacency and eventually poor execution. By tightening your execution habits, you can dramatically improve gross margins and profitability while saving time.
Cash-Icon_Black CASH – The first law of entrepreneurial gravity is “Growth Sucks Cash.” We encourage companies to calculate their Cash Conversion Cycle (CCC), which measures company wide how long it takes between the time you spend a dollar (marketing, design, rent, wages, etc.) to when you get that dollar back.

Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting out of the Box

The Arbinger Institute, Berrett-Koehler

The Anatomy of Peace

 Anatomy of Peace

The Anatomy of Peace: Resolving the Heart of Conflict

The Arbinger Institute, Berrett-Koehler

Written as an engaging story, this book shows how mistaken views can cause people to misread situations and exacerbate the issues they wish to improve. Arguing that it is only after they understand themselves and get their internal house in order that they can correctly confront external conflicts, the book shows what can be done to make that happen, and how to make inner peace a potent tool for achieving outer satisfaction.

ADVanced Insights Assessment

ADVanced Insights Assessments

It’s become a trite cliché that Your Employees are Your Most Important Asset, but in today’s Knowledge Worker Era, that is the fact. With few exceptions, product, equipment, and processes do not differentiate one organization from another. It is the people and the culture that differentiate. Smart organizations identify and hire the best talent, and they provide ongoing development opportunities for their great talent. They understand that they must also assure that their talented people are in the right role and are aligned with the bigger picture thinking of the organization.

New ADVanced Insights Logo Complete Picture of the Employee or the Candidate:  Research has shown that the unique combination of the 3 Innermetrix tools in the ADVanced Insights Assessments gives the most complete picture of the employee or the candidate. Executive Power’s coaches are certified to use these tools to help individuals better understand themselves and others. We use the ADVanced Insights for the Professional Development work we conduct with our clients and provide it as a tool to improve our clients’ Selection, On-Boarding, Coaching & Mentoring, Performance Management, and Succession Planning. The full Assessments include the following:

  • The DISC assessment, which measures the behavioral and communication style of an individual, or HOW an individual acts and prefers to communicate.
  • The Values assessment, which measures an individual’s motivating divers, or the WHY behind an individual’s actions.
  • The Attribute Index assessment, which measures an individual’s subconscious thought patterns. This assessment tells us WHAT an individual’s natural talents are in a fast paced/high stress environment.

These three-fold ADVanced Insights Assessments have helped thousands of clients create teams of “A players” focused on achieving results. Call us for a free sample. We mean it, absolutely FREE and no obligation!
