Master Key Executive

Make the Noise Go Away

The Master Key Executive method provides concrete solutions to the all-too-familiar conundrum that most CEOs spend less than 20% of their time doing what brings the greatest value to their organization to impact growth and revenue. Indeed, after 5 years in operation, as a business grows, it gets more complex. Entrepreneurs are then left doing or worrying about things that are not the best use of their limited resources. More importantly, they can lose sight of the passion, energy and purpose that led them to start an organization in the first place.

 

An effective second in command – or Master Key Executive (MKE) –, when given the right development tools, can give an entrepreneur the freedom needed to get back to this original vision. Simultaneously, the second in command is given the freedom to grow as a leader.

 

This program is partly based on licensed content from Larry Linne's best-selling book Make the Noise Go Away. These sessions are led by Kent Gregoire, the Founder and CEO of Symphony Advantage, also known as the CEO to CEOs. Using this method, our company has helped thousands of successful entrepreneurs get back to doing what they do best.

 

Who should attend: key executives who are a direct report to the CEO (i.e. COO, VP, Division Director, “righthand” person, second in command etc.). There are six sessions that include the participation of the entrepreneur/CEO.


Format: videoconferencing sessions for added flexibility (including make-up sessions)

Dates: the first session is private for the CEO and their key executive. Upon completion of this first session, the CEO and their key executive are then placed in the next scheduled rotation to continue the curriculum. The CEO is required to join five (5) out of the ten (10) Zoom sessions, while the key executive is required to attend them all.

Duration: Eleven (11) sessions scheduled over a 12-month period:

  • Ten (10) 3-hour Zoom classes to deepen the connection with other participants.

  • One (1) 90-minute private coaching session with the entrepreneur/CEO and their key executive.

 

What: This comprehensive 12-month program will provide key executives with concrete tools related to upward communication, innovation and decision-making as well as client, culture, and performance management strategies and techniques. In parallel, entrepreneurs will gain back freedom to grow their bottom line.


Program Cost: $5,050

Conscious Business Accelerator Program

Seven in every ten Americans believe that businesses have an obligation to improve societal and environmental issues. As a result, consumers are making different choices: they are willing to buy from or boycott companies based on corporate values alone.

 

Either driven by a strong belief in the Conscious Capitalism movement or by necessity to adapt to the changing marketplace, companies are making the shift towards Conscious Capitalism, and for good reasons.

 

By focusing on a win-win approach, conscious companies gain a competitive advantage, accelerate employee engagement and therefore positive performance, and boost triple bottom line financial performance, among a long list of other benefits. Indeed, strong and engaged stakeholders lead to a healthy, sustainable, resilient business.

 

While many companies understand that Conscious Capitalism is both the right and the smart thing to do, they struggle with implementation.

 

If this resonated with you, the Conscious Business Accelerator Program is for you.

 

Who should attend? This program is designed for entrepreneurs and C-level executives who want their company to better embrace where we are in terms of consumer and marketplace trends today, as well as where we are in the human journey. We also encourage participants to register a key executive in this course. This is someone who is a direct report (i.e. COO, VP, Division Director, “righthand” person, second in command etc.) and can support the implementation of this program internally.

 

Format: videoconferencing sessions for added flexibility (including make-up sessions).

 

Dates: the first session is private for the CEO (and their key executive). Upon completion of this first session, the CEO and their key executive are then placed in the next scheduled rotation to continue the curriculum.

 

Duration: 

  • Ten (10) 3-hour Zoom classes to deepen the connection with other participants.

  • One (1) 90-minute private coaching session during the first month with the entrepreneur/CEO and their key executive.

  • Eleven (11) 1-hour Zoom office hours

  • Three (3) 2-hour accelerator group peer sharing

 

What? The Conscious Business Accelerator is a proven, guided 12-month program that will help you drive meaningful and lasting change within your organization and beyond for triple bottom line - profit, people and the planet.

  • Follow a step-by-step process to implement the four pillars of Conscious Capitalism within your organization.

  • Learn how to leverage the six essentials of Conscious Capitalism to create a win-win-win approach for all.
