Success – How Can I Help

Success

What Do You Need to Succeed


Vision for Success

AgriStrategies LLC defines success as anything that the team wants to change as long as they measure the current and future state.  The senses are used to define and prepare for success. Being prepared when an opportunity presents itself to leverage your strengths creates success.  Success can be as simple as reviewing last month’s results within 30 days of the end of the month or as complex as changing a weakness into a strength over the next year or growing the value of the business 10 times over the next 10 years. 

Stakeholder Involvement

AgriStrategies LLC is focused on helping teams achieve success as defined by the stakeholders such as the owners, investors, managers, coaches, employees, lenders, regulators, customers, suppliers, and community members that have a say in the decisions that need to be made. 

Independent Coaching

AgriStrategies LLC is an independent agribusiness expert that coaches agribusiness teams such as agricultural producers, processors and suppliers for a fee to prepare and assist them for success by leveraging the strengths of their agribusiness teams and teammates.  This model aligns the preparation and success of the team and the coaches along the journey as successful coaches and coaching teams will result in successful agribusinesses, agribusiness teams and teammates. 

Management Assistance

AgriStrategies LLC assists agribusiness teams with not only preparing for success, but they are also “running the play” with the agribusiness management team by assisting in acquiring resources and developing knowledge, skills, abilities, and procedures to achieve success.

Improved Decision Making

AgriStrategies LLC brings a diverse background, experience, talent and strength in agriculture, finance and banking, as well as works with other coaches to round out the coaching disciplines a team needs, to improve the decision making results of agribusiness management teams and prepare for and achieve success by leveraging the strengths of the agribusiness team.
