AN OUTCOMES-BASED MINDSET
What We Prioritize
REVENUES & PROFITABILITY
As a growing business, WorthGroup engaged Escalate Solutions to advise regarding a strategic planning exercise, however, the guidance and involvement has yielded benefits and outcomes exceeding our expectations. As the core elements of our long-term business plan were crafted and refined, we began to identify gaps in our internal structure that provided additional opportunities for Escalate Solution’s input.
Kimberly helped us with our executive transition strategy, establishment of an external board of directors, the organization and repositioning of our marketing and sales team, and other corporate realignment and planning. She also provided one-on-one mentoring and coaching for several emerging staff members, with immediate benefits observed by all of our partners and senior managers. She even had the capacity to serve as our Interim COO as we worked to identify a more permanent placement.
An individual like Kimberly Arnold, who can step in with such a diverse array of growth planning and operational infrastructure considerations, is both rare and valuable. We are grateful for her involvement and strongly recommend her as a strategic advisor.
APPROACH & FOUNDATION
Want to Escalate Your Strategy? Start by Asking the Right Questions
The two most valuable skill sets that Escalate Solutions offers its clients are (1) listening, and (2) asking the right questions. We never to walk into a room thinking we have all the answers, and excel at guiding our clients through candid conversations that identify the aspirations and challenges.
Leaders are engaged in "strategic" discussions every day, but all too frequently aren't talking about what really matters when it comes to growth, scaling and sustainability. Using Kimberly Arnold's "8 Critical Topics of Strategy" as a launch point, Escalate Solutions helps clients take a deeper dive into the (often difficult) subjects that must be explored before an organization can move to the next level.
