GROWING TOGETHER

All businesses need to know where they are headed and how to get there.

Strategic Planning Session

The strategic planning session is a stand-alone product CSR offers to all leaders to craft a truly strategic approach to their business and accelerate growth.

The methodology employed incorporates a combination of homework, two in-person sessions and off-site work.

Game changer

Alex Muñoz is a game changer. In a very short amount of time, he streamlined our operations, cut the fat, lined up support systems, made us accountable, planned for and managed our growth, and made us as good at working ON our business as we already were at working IN our business. One of the most valuable things he does for me is that he nudges me out of my comfort zone in a way that feels exciting instead of scary, and I know he always has my back. He has gently explained how much more I could be doing with my business. Every time I said “but,” he fixed the problem and kept rolling. He planned the growth of my business, showed me how to achieve it, and planned for me to sustain it, by putting all the elements in place for my success. Alex has earned my highest recommendation!

Drives strategic and operational improvement

Alex and his team at CSR have been able to quickly focus on the three or four issues that we needed to address in our business to take us to the next level. Additionally, they hold me and my team accountable for working our plan to implement the changes we need for business growth. As the president of the company, I’ve found this service invaluable. CSR has served as essentially my COO helping me drive strategic and operational improvement in the business. Thanks, CSR!

Brings issues to light

I can sometimes read body language to tell what a person may be feeling or thinking. With Alex, all I have to do is read the eyebrows. CSR has the ability to ask the hard questions like, “Why didn’t you get that done?” or, “Is that really how things are done here?” All kidding aside, Alex and his team like to win and will walk through walls to do so. They are masters of bringing issues into the light by using facts, questions, and processes. Their challenging and probing inquiries were followed up by structures that made it apparent if I was moving in the right direction or not. The CSR team works hard and does what it takes to get the job done, but they don’t style themselves as heroes. They know what they don’t know and will bring in other resources as needed to augment their own skills to keep the project humming.

Alex is a high-energy, no-nonsense entrepreneur and a “fixer”…

Alex is a high-energy, no-nonsense entrepreneur and a “fixer” who gets to the heart of the matter… your bottom line. Your business is well-served when CSR finds a problem and proposes a solution to fix it. Alex’s focus is how the customer is engaged, and how his clients are poised to serve that customer. Alex understands “right-sizing” like no other professional I’ve encountered. I learned a lot from Alex during the time we worked together, and would welcome an opportunity to work with him again in some capacity.

Timely and high-quality deliverables

Alex and his team at CSR have worked closely with me for the last several months on an organizational development/business consulting contract with a regional nonprofit partner. I appreciate his genuine interest in the nonprofit industry and coaching its leaders to succeed and achieve. Alex and his team are extremely personable, professional, and responsive. CSR’s deliverables are timely and of the highest quality. The extremely “results-oriented” coaching CSR has provided and the plan they have developed for our client are aggressive yet strategic and achievable. In addition, the CSR team has brought a high level of expertise and experience to a region where such expertise is desperately needed but difficult to find.

Harvest That Low Hanging Fruit

Business owners: are you tired of hearing the expression “low hanging fruit”? What is this fruit? Why is it hanging low? Why do you care? As much as we try to avoid consultant-speak at CSR, this is a phrase that tends to crawl into our vocabulary. It happens because... read more

In 2017, Become a Morning Person

What’s Your Wrench?
