Contractors Executive Briefing 2020. Prepare for Profitable Growth in All Economic Conditions.

During the next few years, it is nearly inevitable that we won't have an economic recession.  Markets and competitive landscapes will change rapidly post-COVID.  Some contractors are already positioned well while others will adapt quickly and grow profitably over the next few years.  Many others will struggle and sadly, others will fail. 

The same thing happened during 2007 and 2008.  How did your business perform against the overall industry?

We ARE NOT economists and are not trying to pick out specifics of what will happen in every market or exactly when. 


We are best at helping contractors navigate critical inflection points in their growth. We exist to help contractors build stronger businesses for the next generation by leveraging talent, technology, and capital through alignment and transparency.

Every contractor is already aware of all the industry-wide changes, along with the myriad of “normal” challenges faced by every growing contractor. These changes are continuing to create amazing opportunities for those contractors that can capitalize on them; many others will be left behind. Today’s dominant contractors will not necessarily be dominant in tomorrow’s market.

These challenges have all been successfully navigated before. There is nothing truly new under the sun. Build upon the foundation of your experience with our lessons-learned, tools, tactics, problem-solving capabilities, and relationships to accelerate your growth. Collaboration creates exceptional contractors.

Rapid-Fire Format for Idea Generation and Reinforcement

There is no one-size-fits-all formula. Every contractor, team, and market has different dynamics. As we tailor this briefing specifically for your team, it will be based on:

  • Our individual experiences in the field and as contractors
  • Lessons learned working with hundreds of contractors across the United States
  • Experience of the many other experts in the construction industry 
  • Experience of many other leaders and organizations outside the construction industry

The most important objective of this session is that you pick out the ideas that will impact your team the most at this time and focus on executing them. 



  1. Initial conversation to determine if this is the right fit for your company.  
  2. Planning meeting (online 60-90 minutes)
    • Structured but rapid review of your business to prioritize the session around what will have the biggest impact for you.  
    • Who should participate from both of our teams.
    • When is the best time to schedule the training.
  3. Tailor the training specifically for your company which may include some minor requests for additional information.  
  4. Training and facilitation session (online; 2-3 hours)
  5. Follow-up call after 30 days to see how the ideas are being implemented and provide guidance on any additional challenges.
