Challenges of Running a Business
It is widely acknowledged that the role of the business owner of a small or medium sized business (typically 5 to 250 employees) can be a very lonely one. No matter how well you know your business, there are times when you wish you had another experienced and independent business person to talk to, even if only to provide that vital second opinion or to challenge your thinking.
Large companies usually have a significant advantage over smaller businesses as they are able to afford a professional board of directors with diverse skills and experience which can manage the business very effectively through this knowledge base. The owner of a small to medium-size business typically has no such luxury. Nor is it often a realistic option, as a professional executive director can easily cost a business $100K+ per year in salary alone. Add other benefits such as company car, pension, healthcare, holidays, etc. to all that, and you are committing to a significant annual cost.
Our Business Support Program
, , provides the answer. We level the playing field with larger businesses by giving you a significant advantage over other Independent Business owners; and at a fraction of the cost.
Under the Business Support Program
, you will be appointed a Lead Advisor
who will be available to you to discuss any issues that you have, in any area of your business. In addition, your advisor will allocate a number of days (typically 2 days per month) for practical hands-on time with you and your company, supporting you and helping you make things happen. He also has access to the huge resources of over 4,500 qualified and experienced IIB Accredited Executives, any of whom can be called on to help you with any specialist aspects of your business at a reduced rate.
If your business qualifies for the Business Support Program
, a team member of Mountain View Business Group
will be appointed as your Lead Advisor. In that role, the Lead Advisor is there to support and assist you in any business matter possible, and at the same time act as a “business friend” to you, the Business Owner.
The Lead Advisor
- Will attend any board meetings that you wish to ensure that the company is adequately supported, focused, and progressing to plan.
- Will coordinate and project-manage the use of consulting time and hands-on practical assistance from any of the Institute's professionals.
- Will find an answer to any business queries you may have by accessing the extraordinary business resources of the IIB.
- Will be available on a local hot-line number, free of charge, just to talk through whatever is on your mind or act as a sounding board for new ideas.
The Business Support Program is not at all like traditional consulting. Its real strength lies in the ability to establish an ongoing hands-on relationship between the Lead Advisor and the client.
It’s easier to recognize performance gaps in others rather than finding those gaps in ourselves. But great leaders recognize the importance of continued improvement and support the concept of a learning organization. Only recently have individuals and organizations recognized that their long-term success is directly linked to the quality of their leaders.
