Thoughtfully Ruthless

Leaders need to know how to be ruthless, but in a thoughtful way.

Leadership can be lonely. Who do you trust for sound advice when you need it? All too often, I see leaders look to their team for strategic advice and guidance.  You need a trusted advisor who understands you, your role, and your long-term objectives.

Having worked in Fortune 50 companies and owned several businesses, I know what it’s like to make crucial decisions, juggle resources, and create innovative ideas.

Theresa Schwab Consulting gives you sharper business insights with an executive-level perspective. Working together, you are empowered to:

  • See the big picture with absolute clarity!
  • Execute tough decisions quickly!
  • Manage your resources effectively!
  • Lead a high-impact team!

We gradually replaced both of my high-level energy sapping engineers with rock star performers and not only did they start to guide the company forward (almost from day 1!) but they helped improve the whole attitude of the company from “can’t / won’t do” to “can / will do and let’s do it now.

I wanted to drop you a note of how impressed I am with your job recruiting abilities. As you know, and probably more than most, I was stuck with some underperforming technicians that would argue incessantly about how and why we did things and fight every direction change because they didn’t want to change. They would keep information to themselves, and create islands of information that would hurt my company when another tech had to help out and couldn’t because that difficult tech held the keys to the city. Ugh! I was so frustrated!

But after several talks with you, where you literally talked me off of the edge and helped calm me down we gradually replaced both of my high level energy sapping engineers with rock star performers and not only did they start to guide the company forward (almost from day 1!) but they helped improve the whole attitude of the company from “can’t / won’t do” to “can / will do and let’s do it now.” I’m so impressed that I’m going to have you find me a replacement for my tired salesperson who won’t sell so I can really grow my business!

Thanks again for helping me not only get through the whole process, but holding my hand through it! You’re the best!

You’ve helped me hire two sales people now, two excellent engineers now and really change the rotten, dysfunctional attitude and atmosphere that we had here at JBTech that made me grind my teeth each day. By taking a go-slow approach that I was comfortable with and always helping to check the temperature of the market, and the company and me, we’ve managed to move my company along without jeopardizing my revenue stream.

And the best part is that we are starting to gain traction now and grow the business with a positive attitude and atmosphere that the clients are noticing.

When I have a challenge in my business, I need to be able to talk it through. There is rarely one solution. I give myself 24 hours to solve the problem myself. If I am still ruminating on the challenge, I call Theresa. It helps me to verbalize my ideas out loud stating what I want to do, here’s why I want to do it and what I think the repercussions are going to be. I lay it all out and ask for her opinion.

Theresa sees things uniquely. Others want to argue with me about my ideas or simply provide flippant answers that don’t require much thought. I think wider and deeper than my peers and Theresa helps me stay focused on the long-term effects of my decisions ensuring they stay consistent with my business strategy.

Theresa has been my advisor for several years now. She has stuck with me for some rough years both personally and professionally when few others would. She has been a kind ear when I needed one and a harsh critic when I needed one.

I had 10 employees and four of them were cancerous. They were undermining me. I was met with a wall of resistance at every turn. Our tools were outdated. These folks had been with me for a long time and I was hoping to work with them.  When I hired the first new team member, I felt huge vindication as we started to make headway towards my long-term corporate goals. Clients were happier. Techs were happier. I was happier. It was just an all-around good experience.

With Theresa’s guidance, I completely transitioned the culture in my business from cancerous to highly competent in 18 short months. I look forward to coming to work now. There is teamwork between the sales team and the technicians. Everyone is working together to solve problems and can take on large-scale projects that we couldn’t before.

I was hiring people my way based on my previous experience and my way was clearly not working.  Theresa showed me a new way to filter and hire people. I started to get better quality candidates. I remember interviewing that first new candidate using her system. I was so excited I wanted to hire him right now.

Since I am in business for myself and I don’t have partners, it’s important for me to have an advisor like Theresa who can provide different ideas and perspectives that I haven’t considered. I know that I can reach out to Theresa at any time for support, encouragement and advise.

I feel that Theresa truly understands me and my circumstances – my goals, budget, my workload, my work life balance schedule. Because of her knowledge of my business, Theresa provides customized, specific advice and strategies to implement. It’s Theresa’s listening skills that impress me the most.

I am much more confident knowing that I am making progress towards by goals and that I am focused on the right activities to grow my business.

Before I started working with Theresa, I felt lost and scattered. Theresa helped me prioritize tasks and help me keep track of my time. This year I have quadrupled my sales from last year and the year isn’t over yet.

Have a success coach like Theresa is something every entrepreneur should have. Being able to have someone who’s been through it before and can apply hindsight gives me the advantage of possibly avoiding some unnecessary pitfalls and stress.

A great thing about Theresa is that our conversations are honest and filled with integrity. Being able to hear the good and the bad and then work on a plan that shares the same core values of improving my business is something you don’t get from just anyone.

Listen to your success coach. Even though what you hear sometimes may not be the easiest or seem like the best thing to do at the time. Experience from someone who has already successfully traversed where you are now and can help make the journey easier is something worth listening to.

At first, I was worried about working with a coach. Who wants to have a regularly scheduled meeting to hear about how poorly you’re doing? Well Theresa quickly made me realize that was not what would be happening with her. I get just as much praise and uplifting as I do correction when things are not going well. I have never left a meeting where I feel worse than I did before the meeting. Turns out that if you work on the plan that is developed and listen to the suggestions along the way, there aren’t many meetings around poor performance.

Working with a Theresa has been a great experience. Starting a business is a scary and stressful experience and I knew I needed help fairly quickly. Finding Theresa was a Godsend. She immediately came along side me and put some tangible actions into place that calmed things down and put some perspective on things. One thing I like about Theresa is that right out of the gate she asked how I best respond when things need to be changed. The options ranged from a verbal kick in the pants to quiet even conversation tones. I’ve needed the whole gamut at times and Theresa is an excellent communicator. I have no idea how many clients she has but when we’re talking, it feels like I’m her only client and her only concern. Working with someone who truly wants to see me succeed and has the ability to make that happen is something I will continue to utilize as long as I can. If you’re lucky enough to be able to work with Theresa, you’re on the right path to success.
