It doesn't have to be lonely at the top of your growing business.
Work with an experienced executive, coach, and operations consultant to achieve your company's big growth goals.
I CAN WHOLEHEARTEDLY PASS ALONG THE ORIGINAL RECOMMENDATION GIVEN TO ME: DAVE BATES CAN HELP ANY BUSINESS
KEN AUER / FOUNDER, CEO / ROLEMODEL SOFTWARE
Big growth goals can be tough to accomplish.
That's especially true if you're the "Chief Everything Officer".
You're responsible for being the visionary
the one who has to answer all the "how do I..." questions.
Sometimes the most important questions about when and how to grow a company don't have clear answers. You might have hired smart and capable people who have lots of ideas.
How may of them really share your perspective as an owner and executive?
Ultimately, you've got to make the call -
and that can feel like a lonely spot.
Owning a leading a business doesn't have to be lonely and stressful.
If you're the kind of person who is curious and looking for answers,
you've come to the right place.
I'm a business coach, but not the usual kind.
Listen to this interview clip to hear about my unique blend of coaching and consulting:
DAVE HAS BEEN INVALUABLE TO ME IN THE EARLY STAGES OF LAUNCHING MY NEW SOFTWARE AND COMPANY.
JOSHUA MARTIN / OWNER / LANDONE, LLC.
Who is coachsulting for?
I work with clients who value collaboration, expertise, and insight.
We might be a good fit to work together if you:
want to grow a profitable business that fits into your life instead of running it.
are looking for a trustworthy partner to help you figure out where to go next AND help you implement a plan.
are 100% committed to investing in success for yourself, your team (if you have one), and the growth you want to see.
I GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR APPROACH. IT ALWAYS COMES FROM A PLACE OF EXTREME THOUGHTFULNESS AND CARING, YOU ARE ABLE TO GET PEOPLE WHERE THEY WANT TO GO BY GAINING CONFIDENCE IN THEIR OWN PROCESS. IT'S A LOVELY HYBRID OF IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS, KEEN OBSERVATION, AND GENUINE SUPPORT.
AMY FAESKORN / COACH, WRITER, FACILITATOR
Wisdom is the timely application of knowledge.
What you do matters more than what you know.
I find that many business owners and leaders know a lot -
but they're frustrated in the doing.
"...because I lack the time to do it all."
"...because my team just doesn't get it the way I do."
"...because, I don't actually know what to do - and somebody is going to lose confidence in me if they find out."
I create safe spaces to look at what you know
and apply it in new ways.
There's no cookie-cutter solution.
You are a unique innovator.
You're changing the world in a different way than everyone else.
That's your unique selling proposition (USP).
We co-create an action plan that's just as unique as your business.
Then, as a coachsultant,
I walk with you through the "doing".
THANK YOU FOR ASKING ME QUESTIONS THAT ONLY I CAN ANSWER, GIVING ME A SENSE OF AUTONOMY OVER THIS JOURNEY, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, BEING WISE ENOUGH TO KNOW WHICH QUESTIONS WILL GET ME THERE...IN A WAY THAT FEELS GOOD!

What services do I offer?
I help you find new paths forward.
I do that through deep and thoughtful collaboration around your specific goals.
I blend coaching and consulting in every service I offer.
I offer weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly calls and meetings.
When we meet, we'll talk about the most important things facing your business.
I ask traditional coaching questions and make consulting recommendations.
You commit to specific actions.
In between meetings, you do the work and I provide on-going support.
I will help you set up systems and processes that organize your thoughts and keep track of progress.
I offer a limited number of in-depth consulting engagements.
These include coaching but are more focused on sharing the daily implementation work.
I work with members of your existing team and serve as a fractional Chief Operating Officer. I also offer this service to entrepreneurs and early stage companies who don't have a team yet but need someone with expertise to put systems and processes in place to support your growth.
