COUNCIL.

Your Acumen Council meets once a month, so you’re developing relationships and discussing strategy on an ongoing basis. It’s an intensive council, with roots in strategy, tactics, and real world execution. Growth is a natural outcome.

DEBRIEF.

Also once a month, Acumen partners receive one-on-one executive coaching: We’ve crafted these sessions to challenge you not just professionally, but personally too.

ADVANCE.

Every quarter, Acumen partners engage in an Advance Leadership Workshop with industry leading experts. This includes the entire Acumen community and can include key leaders from your team.

Testimonials

Todd Pleimann

"After every meeting, I come back with an extensive list of things that can share with the team. The ROI for Acumen has been significant. The distinct roles I play; child of Christ, husband, father, and business leader – the group helped me keep appropriate priorities. I feel like I'm so much better in each of those roles that I serve and that directly becomes the result of my time with Acumen."

Andrew Stafford

"After implementing ideas incubated in Acumen in our previous organization, we had the best quarter in 30 years. From an ROI standpoint, Acumen was really making an impact. As we started our new organization, we deemed our investment in Acumen for our leaders a critical and necessary line item, even in our startup budget. The return on investment is multiple from a financial standpoint - but also important to think about the strong ROI for me personally and those who I impact."

Scott Gulledge

"Proverbs 27:17 says “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” That's what Acumen is all about. We're always sharpening each other's ideas – and it's not just business, it's business for the Christian believer.

When Drew called, I would say "I don't have the time, I can't make the time, my work is 24/7”. He patiently told me “You can't afford not to make the time.” Finally, I joined. Now, when I’m ready for the next meeting, it’s often still three weeks away!"

Travis Carpenter

"It's encouraging and motivating to know how many others are going through the same challenges and opportunities that I encounter daily. If you question whether you have time for Acumen, that’s overwhelming confirmation that you need something like Acumen. Every session I come away with four or five that either confirm what I was thinking, save me from making big mistakes, or bring attention to something that wasn't even on my radar. The ROI is easily ten times the investment."

Bob Parker

"Acumen affected my business most by providing the objectivity of other business leaders both on the business and personal level. We get a little bit isolated in our industry and having the broad perspective of other business owners just been very helpful. I find it very easy to make time for Acumen – it's at least one day a month that I'm focusing on the business and not working in the business. The biggest ROI – as a business owner, typically you're not accountable to many people but getting the team’s constructive, well-intentioned feedback is invaluable."
