Do You Want to Grow and Exit Your Company?
First, Clarify Your Target
Do you struggle answering these questions?
- What are all my exit options?
- What should I do now to maximize the value of my exit?
- How will my exit option(s) impact how much money I get?
- What would happen to my employees if I sold?
- How much is my company worth?
- Should I sell to an insider(s) or to a 3rd party?
- Will I have to stay around if I sell?
Start With The Clarity Day Workshop
The first step to a Growth and Exit Plan is the Phase 1 – Clarity Day Workshop. Our Facilitator comes onsite to you for a day, which is broken into 5 parts based on the 5 Growth & Exit Planning Principles. The principles are the foundation for getting you clear on your ideal exit and how to maximize the outcome you want.
The 5 Principles
Clarity Day: Workshop Agenda
Clarity Day is for you, the business owner(s), and is hosted onsite at your office or at an agreed upon offsite location. The workshop kicks off at 8:30am and goes to 5pm with a short break in the morning and afternoon and 1 hour for lunch. The day is broken into 5 sections, one for each of the 5 Principles, followed by a final closing session that ties everything together.
Design & Implementation
After the Clarity Day Workshop, you can choose to design and implement your own Growth & Exit Plan or hire GEXP Collaborative. The Design Phase is where everything comes together and everyone gets on the same page. Your end goal is clear and everyone knows what they should be doing. The result is a dynamic plan focused on what you want and a team that is held accountable during ongoing implementation until you achieve your end goal.
