Meet Our Coaches

What Does Success Look Like 5 Years from Now?

Our strategic planning process helps you proactively identify your BIG goals for the future, translate them into an execution plan, and track progress through annual and quarterly planning sessions. These sessions are transformative and the most important meeting on your calendar outside of family commitments.

How it Works

Establish and maintain strategic planning sessions in your organization to set, create, and track your ongoing growth progress. These three steps are essential to crafting a focused planning session that will set a strong tone for the year ahead.
How it Works

1: Set Your Vision

If you don’t know where you’re going—you won’t get there. We help you articulate a clear vision for your company for the next 5 years and determine what needs to be done to reach that Huge Outrageous Target (HOT).
How it Works

2: Assign Homework

We help you prep for your upcoming session by guiding you through the process of sharing your 10,000- foot view of the year ahead and some context on where you see your company and your industry heading. The answers —and yours — are going to form the blueprint for what you cover at your annual planning meeting.
How it Works

3: Hire a Facilitator

The been-there, done-that coaches at CEO Coaching International are experts at running virtually or in-person planning sessions. They know how to probe when your team is not fully bought in, dig for root causes of issues being discussed, insist on defining measurable activities and outcomes for key initiatives and call out the elephant in the room that everyone is avoiding.

By using the Make BIG Happen System, in less than seven years we’ve grown our company from a $6 million business that represented a mere fraction of our dreams, to a public corporation now trading on the Nasdaq at over $6 billion in value.”
