As a new CEO charged with turning around an underperforming business in North America, the list of challenges was long. Based on a recommendation from seasoned leaders of organizations within the same global enterprise, the CEO sought professional strategic planning services from Red Rooster Consulting, Inc.
His peer CEOs had each separately engaged Red Rooster Consulting to guide their businesses through a strategic planning process. Both shared insights into the uniquely engaging process and the outcomes that delivered value that exceeded their expectations. He made the decision early on to make the same investment in his business and hired Red Rooster Consulting.
“The experience was unlike any other strategic planning process in which I had participated. The Red Rooster Consulting team facilitated a process that was professional and efficient in helping us establish the foundation we needed. Through every phase, their disciplined approach and easy-to-follow guidance ensured that our work was rooted in our shared vision. Their ability to engage our entire team was impressive and ultimately helped us clarify expectations and accept accountability. The process made us a stronger team, aligned our efforts behind critical goals, and prepared us to produce better results.”
“In partnering with Red Rooster Consulting, I came to think differently about strategic planning. They have honed a process that simply gets to what matters most. It was clear that the team had immersed themselves in our industry. And, with vast experience gained from their work across many verticals and corporate environments, they offered objective insights and unique perspectives. They masterfully kept every participant fully engaged. Their process helped every employee see the impact that their own work has on our overall performance.”
“The output of our engagement was a rock-solid strategic plan that became the guidepost that kept us focused on the bigger vision and provided clear direction for managing day-to-day operations.”
According to the CEO, the most valuable result of his first engagement with Red Rooster Consulting was an expedited path to understanding the organization he was hired to lead. Through their strategic planning process, he gained invaluable insight into his new team. The process enabled him to quickly learn the business and observe the dynamics between leaders and their teams in action. He credits Red Rooster Consulting with setting him up for success in his role. He was able to gain traction immediately and lead the business in a successful turnaround, improving performance across all key performance indicators.
Following this initial experience, the CEO went on to lead businesses with the focused goal of optimizing the organization for profitable sale. He has engaged Red Rooster Consulting in each new role he has taken on. “Red Rooster Consulting became my critical ally. The one piece of advice I give peer CEOs going into new roles is ‘don’t go it alone!’
Bringing in Red Rooster Consulting empowers me with the information, insights and action plans that can take new CEOs many months to formulate on their own. I’ll never go it alone again!”
