If you want to grow your business and improve its performance and profitability, then you must improve the decisions people make and the activities in which they engage. It is this unique approach to business that led Violand Management Associates to develop the Sustained Profitable Growth™ system for working with businesses. Addressing a business problem—whether it’s profitability, growth, employee morale, cash flow, or a variety of other common issues—without addressing the root cause of the issue is like taking pain relief medicine for a cold. It might make you feel better for a while, but in the long run it does not help because it doesn’t address the root cause of the problem.
The Sustained Profitable Growth™ system focuses on and explains the intersections of and interactions between the three underlying dynamics that lead to a business’s ability to sustainably grow.
Over-focusing on one or two of the dynamics while ignoring the other creates friction within a company, thereby creating drag and throwing the company out of balance. This can ultimately lead to a company’s growth stalling or declining. You can have the best policies and procedures in the restoration and cleaning industries, but if the right people aren’t performing them or if the owner or managers aren’t holding people accountable for results, they lose their effectiveness, resulting in declined profitability and service levels.
Developing self-awareness and leadership skills within the leaders of the organization. While this is often overlooked, it is in fact the most critical, for without these skills the long-term performance of the other two dynamics can be seriously compromised and top performers will tend to leave. We focus on understanding the acumen, needs, and expectations of the Executive Team and partner with them to achieve results.
Learning how to develop and work with a highly talented team. It addresses challenges on two levels: effective communication between the business leader and their team and helping managers work effectively together as a cohesive team rather than simply as a group of talented individuals.
