Leadership Coaching

Our team offers entrepreneur coaching for you, as well as coaching and team building for your executives. Our partners have led many companies themselves – and have coached hundreds of ceos and executive teams of other companies.

Our team building services empower you, the CEO, to participate as a member of a cohesive team instead of being the facilitator or rulemaker in these creative sessions. Also, our coaching sessions focus on a foundation of consistent processes to convert your values and priorities  – into team alignment and growth results.  This bonding should be a critical part of your team’s and company’s success.

Specifially, we offer our clients the following packages to accelerate their executive teams:

  • Annual Strategy Session (2 hour preparation, 2 full days, 4 hour follow up)
  • Quarterly Tune Up Workshop (1 hour preparation, 1 full day, 2 hour follow up)
  • CEO 1-on-1 coaching (ongoing effectiveness enhancement)
  • Executive Effectiveness Coaching (ongoing effectiveness enhancement)

CXO Support (CEO, Sales, CIO, CFO…)

We’ve been there – raising capital while running -and growing – your business is a challege that our members can help you accelerate.

Some TAG members have sold their businesses or are otherwise available on an interim basis to support you more directly. This could be as interim executive staff on your team, or as a consultant to tackle a crisis or a particular strategic challenge for your company.

TAG Growth Services Group has put together multiple packages to address specific needs of your young, growing firms and your executive team.  In many cases packaged solutions can help your team “get core things right the first time” at a much lower cost then otherwise – by leveraging repeatable experience, wisdom, contacts, and systems appropriate for younger, faster growing companies.
