Doug Wick began coaching our team a few years ago and brought an organized and focused approach to growth to our firm. Doug and I have had our conflicts in the past regarding when and what we should do, but looking back from the time we started to where we are today, and the success we’ve enjoyed since having Doug coach us, it’s been amazing!

Joseph Ferrell, P.E ~ BE-CI Building Engineering-Consultants, Inc.

Our staff has grown by almost 30% and we've seen more than a commiserate growth in revenue. We are equipped to grow even larger thanks in large part to the tools and guidance Doug has provided. Doug and Positioning Systems’ has been a key driver to our success, and I’m sure we wouldn’t be where we are without him.

“In 2013, in addition to growing sales dollars and market share, we cut our return beer rate (ROR) by over 35%. Nearly $600,000 less beer was double handled and brought back to the warehouse by your efforts.”

Through a One Thing Focus on Recruitment I was able to increase my business in the first twelve months from $36 million to over $57 million in sales in my real-estate business. Then to over $100 M in the next 18 months.

In November, Ideal had its best month ever! In fact, Ideal beat its next closest month by 46%. That’s a huge difference and the truth is that Ideal had a great year. And this winter looks to be our busiest ever. I do know how much you and the business development concepts have helped us and greatly appreciate that.

For years it felt like we were in NASCAR going very fast but always seeming to end up in the same place. Now it feels like we’re on the freeway, we’re going a bit slower, but it feels like we are getting somewhere and have a direction. I’m finally feeling like everyone on the team has their shoulder to the wheel and is contributing.

Sat Singh ~ Autopia

“Two immediate takeaways from the workshop; our daily huddles [11:21’s as we call them.] vastly improved communication. Accountability increased, we see the horizon much clearer, making us proactive versus reactive and we are making much better decisions. Second, metrics have increased performance in the field 15% or more.”

Roger Vorhies ~ Schaus-Vorhies Construction

“Thanks for a great interaction and guidance over the years. you are excellent with listening and remembering everything that transpires during every meeting...analyzing, providing proven, researched industry best practices You are a great and excellent coach, prolific writer …..serious CEOs will not regret any money they spend to be part of your system. It has been key to getting me and Technology Center Inc. to where we are today -- I believe poised for a significant take off.

“Daily Huddles are by far the best thing we’ve learned. Lots of our operations decisions have been made through the use of the daily huddle process. Having four daily huddles each day is a pain, yet it’s the most productive and best thing that’s happened to me as a manager.”

Burges Kerawalla ~ Autopia Car Wash

“Doug’s Four Decisions Workshop has allowed our company to focus on our top priorities for the year. With the use of the 1 page strategic plan, company and individual dashboards we are better able to track performance and measure results.”
