Thousands of companies have dramatically improved their financial performance and the lives of their employees.

It’s called The Great Game of Business.
· How to teach your employees to think and act like owners

· How to develop leadership at all levels
· How to delegate more and increase accountability throughout your company
Meet our newest coach Jeff Evenson! Jeff comes to us with an incredible background. He is a West Point grad and holds an MBA in Finance. He has served in the US Army, traded stocks on Wall Street and worked for the largest beer brewer in the world.
Jeff championed playing the "game" of open-book management over the last two years at Ginger Bay Salon and Spa in Kirkwood, a company he and his wife own. His experience with hair stylists and massage therapists at the salon is what taught him all he knows about employee engagement and playing the Great Game of Business. Jeff learned how vital the open-book process is to any company and says he can't imagine running a company any other way. He is a natural fit to our team and we are thrilled to have him in our line-up! Jeff resides in St. Louis with his wife, Laura, and their three children - Suzy, Jeffrey and Sydney.
This is the one thing you need to do to dramatically
improve your financial performance!
These three businesses, of different sizes and industries, have successfully impacted their business through open-book management:
· GINGER BAY SALON and SPA (75 employees) - They got through one of the worst recessions selling luxury services by conducting weekly huddles, forecasting numbers and keeping the scoreboards updated.
· BOOKSOURCE (200 employees) - They've taught the numbers to all of their employees and the employees are using that information to create success in their departments.
· SKELETON KEY (8 employees) - They've significantly grown their business over '09 and were able to pay out a substantial bonus.
