Aristotle Partners fractional executives come from a variety of industries and have deep subject matter expertise in many disciplines. We are called into businesses to augment existing executive teams, working side by side with the leaders to execute on languishing priorities and rescue projects that have lost focus. Most of our engagements are short-term, but many evolve into longer-term retainers. We regularly return to clients who have come to trust our counsel and appreciate our focus on getting things done.
The lifecycle of most businesses includes growth pivots (or should). Your business may have reached $500k in revenues, but it has been stuck there for 3 years. Like one client, your business may have kissed $1M five years ago but was mired in a decline the last several years despite a strong economy. Perhaps you just did $8m in revenue and want to get to $10m, $15m, and $20m. Or, maybe you are still in start-up mode and barely meeting expenses. What we frequently find in these situations is that what got you there will not take you where you want to go. A deep dive into systems and processes to support growth, installing a marketing mindset, and paving the way for FOCUS are essential elements to move the business forward.
We deploy several tools to affect your growth including:
Businesses often believe they need a new campaign, a new software or a new market to achieve their desired growth. They fail to realize that the people they have may, in fact, need an upgrade. Perhaps they have not invested in developing the talent they hired. Or, the business has grown past the capabilities of their current team. Often, part of the growth solution is in the people and not the processes, programs, or systems. Aristotle Partners has significant experience in designing leadership and learning platforms from which your management and staff can grow their competencies and skills.
Tools we use to build your investment in training and professional development:
Specifically for individuals, our Career Transition practice is designed to identify various pathways of interest, build a strategic transition plan, and develop an action plan to get you where you want to be. Over the course of one’s career, there are typically many pivots to other businesses for more pay or greater responsibility. The grind of your daily work can leave little time to consider other pathways for your career. We understand the process of finding the intersection of your talents/interests with the needs of the world. Maybe, the time has come for you to apply all of that learning and experience gained inside someone else’s business to starting your own. Whatever the answer is for you, we help you see the possibilities, identify the steps to get there, and hold you accountable for taking action.
