 What is Frustrating Your Leadership?

Many leaders who call Dr. Ron Tompkins are Outsider Leaders. They didn’t grow up in a home where adults had leadership jobs. Now they are promoted and anxious. They are envious of the tacit knowledge shown by other leaders who got the MBA early and were born to leadership. 

Other leaders call because they are overwhelmed by changing regulations and more paperwork. Some are frustrated because they are the Chief Fixit Officer and programs don’t run smoothly. And many are anxious because the cash for payroll keeps shrinking.


If these problems keep you up at night, why not hire expert leadership backed up by 200 other coaches? We know more than your mother did about leadership and we’re ready to coach your team to success.

Scaling Up Coaching Uses the Scaling Up Performance Platform


1 Driver – The Coach is your external driver to keep the plan and CEO on track. The Coach will be completely honest and trusted with the CEO. You can tell the Coach anything and it goes no further 
2 Demands – Scaling Up always balances 2 critical Demands       Results (what has to get done) and   Process (How to do it properly)

3 Disciplines – Everything stays synchronized with 3 Disciplines – a 5 Beat Reporting System, One Priority, and Data. We design the data required and how to collect, we have discussions on choosing the priority and ignoring the rest, and the Reporting System gives your team 250 chances to succeed!
4 Decisions – the 4 Decisions that are embedded in the 4D System – Right People, Sustainable Strategy, Flawless Execution, and Abundant Cash


The Four Decisions of the Scaling Up Performance Platform






Sustainable Strategy to Grow

Strategic Planning is difficult.  Unfortunately, most plans are dreams instead of plans. The objectives never get together to complete the Plan.  Strategic Coaching guides you to create a winning game and a durable plan within the first quarter, a quick win in 2nd quarter and a financing plan to make it all work.


Lead or Repair?


Flawless Execution


Leaders spend most of their time working on repairs of problems created by staff errors. Coaching restores time for leadership.  Flawless Execution Coaching empowers leaders to return to leading as employees focus on excellence in their own critical tasks. 


Abundant Cash

Cash is the fuel of your company.
If your economic engine is not working, then a crash is highly likely. It’s the most urgent of the Four Decisions!



Cash Coaching helps you decide:
*How much cash has to be kept on hand?   *What is the Maximum $ limit for payroll?
*11 hidden pockets of cash in the first quarter of coaching




Right People Right Things


Right People 

Right People is the most important of the Four Decisions. Companies waste cash and can’t execute good strategies if they don’t have the Right People Decision. Over time, people and jobs change and get mismatched. People Coaching has tools to review tasks, talent, retention, and turnover.  You will get a team of people that you would enthusiastically rehire!
