What We Do
TAB provides the tools and processes privately owned businesses absolutely need in order to grow into successful businesses. Through consistent association with other business owners, who have or are experiencing the same challenges in growing their business, each TAB Member gains wisdom and learns methods to achieve success. Our motto, “Shared Wisdom = Bottom Line Success” is realized by every member who commits to working “on” their business, at least a little bit, as opposed to “in” their business. At TAB Central Alabama we help you do that, so that you too can be successful. Our unique combination of Peer Advisory Boards, Executive Advisory Sessions (Business Coaching for Owners and Senior Leaders), and the use of the Business Builders Blueprint (out proprietary, online tool for creating, executing, managing, and tracking the business’s overall strategic plan) ensures the best possible opportunity for building the business of your dreams, and not the “job” of your nightmares!
TAB allows you to meet with around half a dozen fellow business owners each month either personally or virtually. It’s the same people each month so they really get to understand you and your business. They don’t have any vested interest so will give you candid advice and share their own experiences to help you run your business even better. You can also be assured that none of your competitors will be in the room or on the VTC, and everything that is said in a board meeting is kept strictly confidential. Every month you bring an issue or opportunity to your board to work through with the other business owners. From your discussion you will be able to develop more creative ways to achieve success, using the knowledge you gained from the other members of your board.
Along the way, you will develop close relationships with the other members of your board and will feel comfortable discussing even the “deep-dive” issues that sometimes confront business owners. One of the leading factors in TAB Members satisfaction is the “camaraderie and rapport” that they developed with the other members of their board.
As a TAB Member, you will have an Executive Advisor that will, over time, become your trusted advisor. TAB Business Coaching provides a trusted advisor you can count on to help you increase business performance, work through business opportunities and challenges, achieve greater success and truly live the personal and professional life you desire. TAB Executive Advisory (Business Coaching) sessions will make you focused with more balance – and what feels like more time in your schedule to sit back and soak up the signs of success. Your Executive Advisor will also help you stay on track and help you meet the commitments you make to yourself, and to your board. Our coaching sessions are conducted either in person of via a teleconference or Videoconferencing.
Business Builder’s Blueprint
A proven strategic business planning process focused on forming the business owner’s vision of leading a successful business while also living a rich fulfilling life, the Business Builder’s Blueprint™ will help you demystify the strategic planning process with a clear picture of how to achieve your strategic direction and vision. Our proprietary online tool helps a business owner first create the strategy for taking their business from wherever it is when we start, to whatever level the owner desires and is articulated in the company vision. Then the tool is used to track and manage that process including assigning tasks and responsibilities to others in the organization and tracking the results through customized Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
There is no better tool or system around which is as easy to use and provides the essential elements necessary to create and implement an executable plan.
