THE
ACUMEN
DISTINCTIVES

ACUMEN IS COMMUNITY.

It may be lonely at the top, but it doesn’t have to be.

We facilitate camaraderie among industry leaders who want to sharpen each other, and grow stronger together.

ACUMEN IS A PLACE FOR CHALLENGE.

Our mastermind teams are places for growth-oriented CEOs and Owners.

If where you’re at today isn’t good enough, and if you thrive when pushed to new heights, then our mastermind groups could be what you need.

ACUMEN IS FOR OWNERS AND CEOS WHO SEEK RESULTS.

We’re not a place for triage, for sunsetting, for closing up shop.

Acumen is designed for businesses seeking to be at the top of their game. Acumen is a place for people who want their companies to grow quickly and sustainably.

In fact, results are our promise:

Acumen guarantees a 10x ROI. If not, 100% of annual fees are refunded after your first year.

ACUMEN IS ROOTED IN PURPOSE

Every Acumen team is composed of CEOs and Owners who believe that HOW we live, lead, and serve others has meaning for today — and on the great beyond.

Far from perfect, we are men and women who claim Jesus Christ as our Savior. We aspire to lead a life of purpose in our businesses, our communities, and our families.

TESTIMONIALS
GROWTH OF BUSINESS, PROFITABILITY AND LEADERSHIP EFFECTIVENESS:

“The Acumen community has been an invaluable resource for me personally and the key leaders of our firm. The DNA of what makes Acumen unique around the notion of a “higher standard” can be found throughout our organization and leadership approach. The unique combination of competence and confidentiality with a group of high-performing peers is a catalyst. The affinity model aligns me with like-minded owners.”

Case Dorman, CEO, Fiorella’s Jack Stack Barbecue
WISE COUNSEL, ACCEPTANCE, CONFIDENTIALITY & SAFETY OF IMPARTIALITY

“The major difference I’ve experienced [with Acumen] is the authenticity, transparency, and ‘get-real’ factor. We share a common belief system and that makes an incredible difference in the connectedness and counsel of our team — the stakes are higher! It’s a high-performing team for a much Higher reason!”

Jon Schram, The Purple Guys
A BIGGER, CLEARER VISION FOR THE BATTLE AHEAD

“Being challenged by a group of other leaders month, with key performance indicators and holding each other accountable, has made me a better leader. And it’s helped me transition my team into better leaders. Leadership at our company is now an activity rather than a position. I travel in from Florida for Council each month – the newer guys have asked me why I do that… it’s because Acumen is such an impactful part of my life that I wouldn’t miss it.”

Bob Meyers, President & CEO, iTedium
CATALYTIC GROWTH FOR YOU, YOUR FAITH, YOUR FAMILY AND BUSINESS

“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. For 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 – as a result of my time with Acumen.”

Todd Pleimann, Managing Partner, RubinBrown
TO BE A BETTER BOSS

“My group has been like a board of directors. I know I’ll get objective opinions, and that every single individual cares about me and my success. Advice without personal agendas, and consistent with my faith, is rare and valuable. Nuts & Bolts has transitioned significantly in the past two years and I largely credit the group for that success.”

Tim Haake, President, Nuts & Bolts Hardware
INTEGRATION OF FAITH AND COMMERCE FOR GREATEST IMPACT AND LEGACY

“The ROI for me and my business has been tremendous. Our firm continues to grow at record levels and the wisdom and insight provided by my fellow advisors has been a catalyst for not only our growth, but my maturity and effectiveness as a leader. I realize now that ROI doesn’t just mean “investment” it also means “influence.” I realize more than ever that my business is an incredible platform for influence!”

Dustin Doll, CEO, Accord Group
