Where could your company be in one, three, or five years from now if you stopped fighting fires?

Your time is too valuable to waste swimming in an endless sea of information, while drowning in a lack of strategic direction.

Many contractors see enormous opportunity on the horizon, but feel paralyzed by too many competing priorities to make meaningful progress on strategic objectives. They need help, but only find consultants who are generalists and don’t truly understand the unique challenges of growing a construction company. They need someone who has been there, and can help them differentiate themselves in a world where most of their competitors are promising the same thing and competing on price for both projects and people.

I can’t think of a more rewarding and difficult business to grow than a construction company. If you are reading this, you are likely one of the crazy ones who risk it all every day in the construction industry to build a more sustainable future. There are so many challenges that are unique to the construction industry, it’s impossible to list them all. The goal posts are constantly moving - owners who want more for less and quicker, labor shortages, changing talent pool, cost escalation, downward pressure on margins, and degradation of design to name a few.

I can guarantee that whatever time you put into coaching and developing your management skills and your systems of operation, you’re going to gain tenfold on that time back in rewards. Eric's given me the ability to identify and pursue top clients and projects. This has allowed us as a company to streamline, and to become more focused and profitable. As a business we’ve been able to grow profits and our client list.

Now I have a great team in place that I can delegate through. They’ve done a great job of managing the different aspects of the business. That’s allowed the business overall to be more successful. It’s taken the pressure off me as the owner, allowing me to pursue other opportunities. There’s no way I’d want to go back to the way it was after seeing what an organizational team and chart can do for our company.
