Does it sometimes feel like you are running a divided company?

Do employees feel things are done To them or For them?

Do you feel like you are surrounded by the team you always dreamed of?

Does it feel like people might be grumbling behind the scenes?

Are you sucked back into people problems?

Does it feel like execution might be slipping?

Does it feel hard to maintain momentum?

Does it feel like you are constantly losing steam on new initiatives?

Does it always feel easy?

What if things could be different?

Help your employees answer: "What's in it for me?"

The people who can add momentum and power to your corporate flywheel are your employees, your individual contributors. The combined weight of their buy-in is critical. We help you flip the script so employees know you are doing things for them, not to them. This will free the load off of you and enable your employees to start and maintain carrying the load.

Build a business that is powered by your people, not just you

There are individuals who have in their mind a dream job just like you have in your mind a dream company. The simple key is matching these people with their dream, together, with your dream. When folks share the same dream, the same imagined future, they pull together as one single culture with shared attitudes and institutions that fosters individual growth and buy-in.

Make and keep 7 Promises to your organization

We help you make and keep a promise to your organization, a promise that everyday, you’re going to surround them with people who can answer yes to the 7 Fundamental Questions™. This creates the type of workplace you dreamed of, and it is now shared by those who want the same thing at their place of work.

The 7 Question – 7 Promise Framework™ is a practical tool that will work in every team and personnel structure. Is this right for me?

You're hitting goals, size is close to you imagined, but you're wondering why it is not as you dreamed.

Your corporate flywheel feels more like a hamster wheel, you're running out of steam, and ready for a power boost.

You've invested in peer groups such as Vistage, YPO, or C12.

You've invested in and implemented an Organizational Operating System like EOS® or Scaling Up.

You're investing in developing a strong leadership team in the hopes of getting help everyday.

You know you can be great, but the path is fuzzy.

Very few people understand how hard and expensive it is to start, and maintain, a successful business.

We know exactly what you’re going through. In our 30 years of combined experience, we’ve started and exited companies ourselves. We’ve been fed up with the hassles of in-house politics and people not following through. We’ve felt the frustration of trying to figure out how to fix it.

Meet your workshop guide, a seasoned Organizational Strategist, facilitating 1,500+ days with leadership teams.

During the last decade, Walt Brown has helped transform the culture of more than 160 organizations across the country through his work helping companies install effective Organizational Operating Systems, systems that attain and maintain yes to the seven questions. It’s his greatest pleasure to help owners and companies sharpen or even resurrect their original dream culture, to get back the company they always dreamed of having, to create that place they always wanted to work. He loves pedaling along with his clients as they think, plan, execute, then take time to observe, adjust, and reflect as they master the skills necessary to permanently enjoy the fruits of an awesome OOS installation. An OOS installation that leads to them becoming a Certified Patient Organization.

Learn more about Walt

“Seasoned multi-company entrepreneur” is one label that has been used to describe Walt over the years.

Many folks refer to Walt as an entrepreneur, but he insists this is much too generous: “I don’t consider myself an entrepreneur. I consider myself someone who is good at seeing existing patterns and pulling them together in logical ways that people are willing to pay for, then I build teams to serve the pattern.”

Walt believes that, like a waterwheel (powerful, patient, and versatile), a good Organizational Operating System (OOS) captures the source of an organization’s energy and direction, (humans) and then focuses that energy powering your organization. Walt’s Seven Questions and the tools of your OOS are the buckets on that wheel, the fins on the turbine. If you can keep filling those buckets by aligning everyone to yes on the Seven Questions with your OOS, you will harness incredible energy.

Walt is seven for seven when it comes to launching and growing new companies. During the last decade, he has helped transform the culture of more than one hundred fifty organizations across the country as an Implementer of an OOS known as the Entrepreneurial Operating System®. It is his greatest pleasure to work with his clients as they think, plan, execute, observe, adjust, and reflect as they master the skills necessary to permanently enjoy the fruits of a Patient Organization.

One trait that sets Walt’s career apart from others is extreme seasonality. When one is in a seasonal business, two good, bad, and ugly things come with it: 1) The bad and ugly of a seasonal business are extreme cash-flow issues. 2) The good is the off-season when you have time to think, plan, consider a serious change in approach, and then test your execution next season. Walt was cursed but mostly blessed with seasonality, it provided him a unique number of strategic planning reps that honed his understanding of strategic thinking and patience. The built-in patience of those cycles shaped Walt’s business philosophy and his approach to team coaching, which puts patience front and center.

So you can get a sense of his experience, combined, Walt’s 50 largest business clients have 8711 employees, with average sales per employee of $245,786, their average size is $45.5 Million in revenue per year and combined they are doing over $2.2 Billion in sales. Since becoming Certified Patient Organizations, their employee engagement has consistently risen, employee tenure has increased, and they have doubled their bottom lines and doubled their net free cash flow. Plus they are enjoying life with more freedom. He is typically working with 30 clients across 150 days in a year.
