About Gard Business Coaching

Gard Business Coaching offers a wealth of expertise in mission-critical business functions that trade subcontractors need to maintain a positive bottom line, year after year. Our services are tailored to the specialized needs of the construction industry and are available at varying levels of support/intervention. We also offer a comprehensive business restructuring program that transforms operations from the ground up

We fix businesses so they can grow. The first step is a thorough business analysis by a trusted business partner who knows every aspect of the construction supply chain and works from the perspective of a Chief Operating Officer. Your “COO for Hire” evaluates the organizational structure, its systems and workflows, and identifies what is needed to reenergize the culture and restore a growth trajectory.

The first area of focus is accounting/financial reporting. Who is responsible and who oversees this essential function? If no qualified accountant is currently in the role, we fill the gap with a contract person/ Controller/CFO who builds an accurate P&L that reflects the real condition of the business. Once you have a clear financial picture, corrective action can begin.

The next step is developing and/or deploying specialized tools, efficient processes and clear performance metrics to facilitate a standardized, systematic approach to key business functions and provide the real-time, accurate data needed to make the hard decisions that need to be made. Our robust portfolio of specialized business tools includes Financial Dashboard, Estimating/Job Costing, Sales Training, Talent Management, Performance Tracking, Employee Reward/Recognition and Technology components.

My passion and mission is to help small to mid-sized businesses and startup companies to create sustainable business models that increase their net profits, customer retention and lead development.

Our proven program features:

  1. Accurate, clear financial statements that reflect the real financial condition of your business.
  2. Structure, systems, processes and tools that make it easy for you to identify costs to the penny and measure progress and momentum across the estimating, sales and production sides of your business.
  3. Rigorous evaluation of employees’ strengths and weaknesses, clear performance goals and the right people in the right jobs.
  4. A business culture where employees are held accountable for reaching performance goals, are rewarded for achievement and want to grow with the business.

Trust the experts at Gard Business Coaching to get your business back on track. The payoff is a well-run, predictable business where everyone knows the rules, employees are held accountable for results, and the bottom-line exceeds expectations.
