Why Hire Outside Directors When Private Companies Don't Have To?
They Bring Change.

Written by John Collard
An outside director is a member of the board of directors or advisors who is not part of the executive management team. These individuals are helpful to your company because they rarely have conflicts of interest and they often see the big picture differently than insiders.     8a mag

You Must Build Company Value Before You Can Value It.
Written by John Collard

Process of Recovery requires Leadership, Strategy, Quality Management Team, New Business Development, Sound Capital Structure, Implement Processes, and Nuture Resources.     8a mag

Compete To Win
Build A Business Development Organization That Will Improve Your Win Ratio

Written by John Collard

Raising Money Capital In Uncertain Times:
There Is Capital For The Good Deals

Written by John Collard
There is an abundance of funding available in the marketplace for good deals. The key wording in this statement is of course “good deals.” When a company is in trouble, it is rarely considered a good deal without some fixing.     8a mag

If You Want Results ... Show Them The Money!
Incentive-Based Management.

Written by John Collard
Business owners willing to invest in realistic incentives that reward employee achievements are likely to reap the proceeds. The key to success is to set realistic goals and time frames, hold managers accountable for performance, and communicate measurement and reward methodology — then step back and let them perform.     8a mag

Mission Possible:
Key Elements To A Good Mission Planning Statement.

Written by John Collard
What does your mission statement say to others? Make certain that it conveys direction and states why you are the company to choose to deliver results. Stress why the customer will buy, and more importantly, why the customer will buy from you.     8a mag

Danger Signals: Is Your Company At Risk?
Early Warning Signs Pinpoint Business Troubles.

Written by John Collard
Too often, companies die unnecessarily because most business leaders haven’t learned to recognize the symptoms of oncoming illness in their business. Leadership hasn’t had to deal with it in the past and is ill equipped when trouble sets in. The obvious signs of business trouble are rarely its root causes. Losing money, for example, isn’t the problem; losing money is the result of other problems.     8a mag
