This Trust Exercise will Drive Results and Focus Your Team


One of the key roles of a business leader is to engender trust amongst their team.   One exercise that we recommend to do this is called Stop/Start/Continue.     Stop/Start/Continue helps to build trust by having each participant communicate what each other needs to stop doing, start doing, and continue doing in order to achieve the business plan.   Instead of seeing this activity as one to judge or criticize other leaders, see it as a way to drive constructive communication and trust.

Thinking About Selling Your Business? Read this First.


Why do I want to sell my business?   I asked this question before.   I was a business owner and founder that was consumed by long hours and overwhelmed by demands.

For these reasons, it made me think about selling. Other times it made me wonder about the price where I would get up and walk away from the business.  …

From the outside looking in it may seem like maximum freedom and flexibility. After all, you are your own…

STUCK Talks Strategic Planning with The Paranet Group


The Co-Founders of STUCK, LLC first went around the room and asked what everyone’s pain points were. What brought them to a strategic planning session at 8am on a Tuesday?   Some attendees came because they needed more effective tools to use for their business. Others came because they wanted to try a new planning process. Or, they came because they needed a better way to communicate their goals to their staff.   As the topics varied, everyone had something in common. They all wanted to transform their business from its current state to its ideal future state.   A…
