A No-Regret Exit Requires 2 Plans
A no-regret exit, requires you to have 2 plans.
PLAN 1 - The Owner's Plan (Know) – Every owner needs to develop a personal plan with a clear understanding of their goals, their legacy, & their best life after an exit. They also need a full-life financial plan, & to know the ability of the business to support their full-life plan. Finally, they need to know what needs to be transformed in their business to maximize the extractable value.
PLAN 2 - The Business's Growth Transformation Plan (Grow) – Your exit readiness and exit attractiveness are determined by the effectiveness of your team, & their proving their ability to grow the business (without depending on you). The business growth transformation plan is the road map to grow & develop your team, who in turn will grow the extractable value in the business, making it ready for sale & attractive to a strategic buyer. We transition your team up, so you can transition out on your terms.
ESG Can Increase the Sale Value
of Your Business
Strategically, to maximize extractable value, take Wayne Gretzky’s advice, “skate to where the puck is going”. For business investors & buyers, the puck is rocketing toward sustainability & ESG (environmental, social, governance) conscious businesses. You can add significant value to your business if you have embraced the ESG-conscious business principles. ESG is the key to attracting money, clients, the best talent & to earning a social license to grow in the future. You can also use it to differentiate your business so it stands out like a shiny penny (that gets picked up) in the over-heated M&A market.
Your Exit Depends on Having the Best People, Grow Them or Lose Them
Simply put Harvard says, if you want to attract and retain the best talent, you've either got to grow them or you'll lose them. Open group leadership training is the most cost-effective way for you to retain talent, build morale, break down silos, engage, motivate & connect all generations of your staff & develop your high-performance culture. There is also government funding available that covers 2/3 of the cost for such programs.
Maximizing Value for Buyers
Maximizing the value of your acquisition doesn’t just happen, HBR says 70-90% of acquisitions fail to achieve their intended goals. Taking your new acquisition to the next level is a conscious growth transformation, requiring you to empower the team you've acquired with a clear vision, strategic goals, planned action, executed well, producing a great, high-growth business.
