High-growth companies and high-bandwidth founders always have board members and advisors opening doors and providing guidance on “moving the needle” for the company.
Top performers in business and life have coaches and mentors in their lives that give them wise counsel, help them realize their potential, and identify potential hidden opportunities (or concerns).
Kurt has been blessed to have had a number of people much wiser than himself, frequently several seasons of life ahead of him, pour into him over the years. In every one of his growth phases, he can identify at least one trusted advisor in his life – sometimes a personal mentor, other times an investor, and frequently a board member that had walked the same path multiple times before. In almost every one of his companies, he chooses one or more board member to coach them through their growth phases.
If you’re not familiar with the difference between a mentor and a coach, watch John Saddington’s video and read his article on The Difference Between a Mentor and Coach.
Kurt actively advises/coaches/consults high potential leaders to help companies accelerate their growth. Sometimes this involves being a member of a company’s advisory board or board of directors. Other times, it’s one-on-one with the CEO, founder, or another executive of the company. Either way, he brings a unique combination of his experience growing companies, behavioral science, and sometimes tough-love.
These are paid / contractual relationships with some combination of equity and or monthly retainer. Need to accelerate your acceleration? Connect with Kurt and see what makes sense.
