Strategic Coaching & Consulting

align5 is the parent company of align.Space and  was founded in 2015 to serve growth company entrepreneurs at all stages along the Entrepreneurial Life-Cycle. Our name is a reflection of our belief that simplicity is much better than complexity, and we work companies to help them in a variety of ways, whether it be high growth, building a world-class culture, coaching senior leaders, or exiting through our Investment Banking Services.

align5 leverages a team of leaders who have experience in entrepreneurial high-growth firms and have experienced the same challenges – and overcome them – that you do with your business.

Whether through our multi-day strategic planning sessions, or our longer-term strategic coaching engagements, the entrepreneurs and companies that work with align5 can expect to have a partner who will add value to their organizations. align5 takes a unique approach with leveraging a team of leaders who have extensive experience in scaling high-growth organizations.

align5 has an array of solutions to fit the needs of your business and the challenges you face. Rather than just answering questions or solving a specific problem, align5 can help you implement a process that will allow you to execute on your priorities in the midst of rapid growth.  The process, referred to as the “Rockefeller Habits,” will allow you, your leadership team, and your organization to “Scale Up.”  Thousands of organizations have implemented these principles and have cited the process as the critical reason behind their intense growth. This approach represents a fundamental shift in the system by which you and your team lead the organization, and it will free you to focus more on the strategic direction of the organization rather than the tactical deliverables of the daily business process.  

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

Regardless of the level of engagement, you can expect the following from align5:

  • Understand Desired Outcomes - What are your goals and what do you hope to accomplish with an engagement? By understanding your needs, we’ll ensure we deliver value  at least 5x to your investment.
  • Clear Expectations – Each engagement will begin with clear expectations around your team and leaders and the align5 approach.
  • Accountability – Every meeting or interaction will have clear takeaways so that you can measure the effectiveness and execution of our team and your leaders.
  • Simplicity – our contracts and agreements are month to month with no requirements of long term commitments and we will be easy to work with.
