If you’re going to invest in strategic planning and operations coaching, you need to be prepared with the facts. This step will involve a commitment of finances and energy. It will require you to divert resources to experts to help you implement strategy. Is the investment worth it? Let’s do a comparison of the costs of implementing strategic planning and operations coaching vs. keeping the status quo in your business.
What Does Strategic Planning and Operations Coaching Cost?
At The Intention Collective, we offer a range of packages to serve different size businesses. The prices range according to the level of service provided, and we customize our packages for each individual client. However, these estimates are a good place to start:
Startup: $500 weekly
Entry Point: $1200 weekly
Accelerate: $2000 weekly
Ultimate Acceleration: $3500 weekly
Each package includes additional support to undergird your growing organization. We use the System & Soul Framework to accelerate your business growth while building a healthy team. We help you scale while constructing a thriving company that won’t bend under pressure.
What Does It Cost To Go Without a Strategy?
Of course, it’s entirely possible to build a team without strategic planning and operations coaching. You aren’t required to implement the System & Soul Framework in order to maintain an excited, committed team of employees. However, as you scale your company, there are a number of risks involved. A growing business faces several significant pitfalls. These are also costly. These include:
Lost Revenue: A dysfunctional business can result in poor customer experiences, leading to customer dissatisfaction, reduced repeat business, and negative word-of-mouth. This can directly impact your revenue as you lose out on potential sales.
Decreased Productivity: Inefficient processes, lack of clear communication, and internal conflicts can lead to decreased employee productivity. When employees are not working efficiently or are demotivated, it can result in delayed projects, missed deadlines, and wasted resources.
Increased Operating Costs: Dysfunctional businesses often have inefficient workflows, redundancies, and mismanagement of resources. This can lead to higher operating costs, including increased labor costs, excessive inventory, and wasted materials.
Employee Turnover: A dysfunctional work environment can lead to high employee turnover. Recruiting, hiring, and training new employees incurs costs, and the loss of experienced employees can impact the overall knowledge and effectiveness of your workforce.
Legal and Compliance Costs: Dysfunctional businesses might not adequately adhere to legal and regulatory requirements. This can lead to fines, penalties, and legal disputes, which can be costly to resolve.
Customer Acquisition Costs: As word spreads about a dysfunctional business, you may need to invest more in marketing and advertising efforts to attract new customers and counteract negative perceptions.
Missed Opportunities: Inefficiencies and lack of effective decision-making can cause you to miss out on potential business opportunities, partnerships, or strategic initiatives that could have been profitable.
Wasted Resources: A dysfunctional business might allocate resources improperly, invest in unnecessary projects, or fail to capitalize on assets. This wastes time, money, and effort that could have been better utilized elsewhere.
Damage to Reputation: A poorly functioning business can damage its reputation, which can be extremely costly to repair. Rebuilding trust with customers, investors, and stakeholders takes time and resources.
Impact on Financial Health: Cumulatively, all the above factors can contribute to financial instability and potentially lead to cash flow problems, borrowing at higher interest rates, and overall weaker financial health.
