I’m familiar with management systems for scaling companies, such as Scaling Up and EOS Traction, and have used these in my company. What I found both complementary and unique about Mentorley compared to these popular systems was its focus on the CEO’s perspective.

Mentorley is more of top-down approach, which allows a company leader to get out of the weeds and look at the big picture. I found it to be a strategic troubleshooting tool that helped me to identify and prioritize the most important issues to move our company forward.

As the CEO of a small company, I sometimes feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of alternatives I have to choose from to grow my business. Making these important decisions when there is so much uncertainty can be stressful, especially in my fast-paced, competitive environment.

Engaging in the Mentorley program was quite the eye-opening experience—the process allowed me to gain absolute clarity on root issues. Then I learned how to go about systematically eliminating those issues from my business. It provided me a framework for becoming clear and confident about the best direction to take my company. Probably the greatest personal value I got out of Mentorley was that my job as a CEO became more stress-free.

CEOlab  enables CEO’s of scaleup companies to gain a unique strategic perspective about their companies and the best way to get them from where they are to where they want them to go. It shows CEO’s how to identify the most important challenges that are keeping their companies from reaching their full potential.

This track is not about improving blocking and tackling throughout your company. There are  lots of other programs out there for that.

CEOlab gives CEO’s  the tools and
guidance they require
to gain
clarity about the best path forward. So they can make critical decisions more quickly and move forward more confidently.

CEOlab combines an online mentoring platform with a practical toolkit for strategic troubleshooting and prioritization of company resources. It is a novel application of proprietary content and proven methodologies based on Lean management principles and practices to CEO-level business problem-solving..

Emerging from COVID-19

As we look toward the light at the end of the tunnel for Covid-19, every small company is now an emerging growth company. Emerging from a once-in-a-century crisis. Needing to grow.

But how do  CEO’s determine the best path to take for their company to   achieve profitable growth? Each company has unique strengths and challenges. And lots of options. Right now there’s little room for error.

This new program was designed specifically to address the situation CEO’s of small business face today. It applies the Lean principles and practices used in CEOlab to this new, widespread challenge: deciding which growth options to bet your company’s future  on.






Lean Operating System

The Lean Operating System (LOS) institutionalizes a Lean philosophy throughout your entire organization. The same Lean principles and practices used in CEOlab can be applied to every area of your company to gain more efficiencies and effectiveness. The result is a management system that scales growth—profitably and predictably.

LOS improves the quality of work within departments, functional areas, and company processes. Business functions as diverse as product and service development,  production, customer service, supply chain management—even marketing and sales—benefit from its application.

LOS provides a management system that aligns company functions to common company goals. It provides a way for CEO’s to drive  development and continuous improvement across all aspects of their organizations.

Completion of the CEOlab track is a prerequisite to join the LOS track.



CEO’s of Scaleup Companies

It can be stressful to be the CEO of a scaleup company. Many big, important decisions to make but often only one person (the CEO) to make them.

An overwhelming number of alternatives for the best way to grow the company. Endless choices, each with its own possibilities and risks—both known and unknown. All happening in fast-paced and rapidly-changing competitive, market, and technology environment.

Does this sound like your world?

CEO stress is just a symptom, not the core issue.
