Most business owners already know well that leadership
is lonely. While it is satisfying to see the fruits of their
labors over time, when the "buck stops" always at your desk it
can become a daily frustration, with no one to help. They've also
found that talking it though at home is not the answer and, of course,
constant "crisis management" never allows time for
development. Over the years, goals and dreams begin to fall by the
Hard work and perseverance can be keys to finding the
success, money and satisfaction you desire. However, the price of
poor health, not having enough time to enjoy life, strained family
relationships and lessened productivity is too high. The result will
likely be less than your dream or the inability to enjoy it once you get

What is Executive Personal Support ?
The Executive Personal Support process is similar to
consulting. However, in this instance the consultant "stays
with" the client and works with them over time to help implement new skills, changes and goals, and to make sure that they really happen.
The EPS process is not therapy. EPS does not work on "issues",
deal with problems of the past or work with understanding human behavior.
Knowledge in these areas may come as clients move forward toward personal
and professional goals that will give them the life they really want, but
it is not be the focus of an EPS relationship.
What are the Goals of the EPS process?
Why does the Executive Personal Support process
- To help clients set better personal goals or business
/ professional goals and then reach those goals.
- To encourage clients to do more than they would
have done on their own.
- To challenge clients to focus better and
produce results more quickly.
- To provide the tools, support and
structure that will enable the client to accomplish more.
- A dynamic supportive relationship between the EPS
provider and client creates a momentum which more quickly places business and personal
goals within reach.
- Better goals are set -- ones that naturally pull the
client toward the goal rather than goals that require the client to
push themselves to the goal.
- The client develops new skills, and these skills
translate into more success.
How long does an EPS relationship last?
A three to six month commitment is typical, but as with
any other business relationship, if the client does not feel that EPS is
working for them,
the process is stopped immediately.
What are the time and fee commitments of EPS?
The EPS process is started with a 90 minute meeting to
preferably at the client's business location. Follow up is usually
done by phone in a scheduled 30 to 45 minute call per week. EPS session time
is billed at $75 per hour, so after the first month, monthly costs are
often less than $200. As with all other CCS consulting, additional EPS phone meetings
can be initiated by the client at any time.
