Most agency owners and executives excel at the creative process and delivering superior client service.
They understand the importance of working with clients to achieve important business objectives, but they often don’t apply the same focus and energy to their own business objectives.
The fact is that being an excellent communicator and strategist is not the same as being a successful entrepreneur.
That’s where Agency Leadership Advisors can help.
- 1-on-1 advising. It can get lonely as an agency entrepreneur. There are times when you need a sounding board and someone to push back on crazy ideas. We help agency owners and executives who need a second opinion, a bit of advice, or the hard-fought lessons of success (and failure).
- Operational audits. No matter how diligent we are as business leaders, we miss things in our own agencies. Bringing in an independent third party to put a fresh set of eyes on key policies, processes, and practices can make a real difference to the bottom line.
- Leadership development. For mid-size and larger agencies, there needs to be a focus on growing the next generation leadership team. At the same time, rising stars want recognition and they need to see their employer investing in their career development. Customized programs to provide skills and knowledge for these future leaders improves retention and positions the agency for the next stage of growth.
In the coming months, Agency Leadership Advisors will roll out additional offerings, including online and in-person training opportunities, exclusive research reports, and peer learning programs.
In the meantime, we’re also launching the Agency Leadership Hub. There are plenty of places for communicators to go for news and commentary about the latest tools and techniques for PR and marketing. But there are very few places to get the kind of focused business insights needed to be successful at running an agency. The Agency Leadership Hub addresses that need.
If you or someone you know could use a little help growing an agency by making it more scalable and profitable, let’s talk.
