A GOAL WITHOUT A PLAN IS JUST A WISH.

WE TRANSFORM WISHES INTO REALITY.

Strategy advisors and executive coaches to owners, CEOs and board directors – we have a proven approach to positioning businesses for the next stage: growth or succession. 

In a complex and fast changing world, Scion’s approach enables clients to build new frameworks for the future, discover profitable paths to market and grow brands that resonate with a new generation of customers.

Your success matters greatly to our team.

GROWTH. SUCCESSION. LEADERSHIP.

GROWTH PLANNING
Visioning & execution roadmapping.

Take your business to new heights . When a business experiences complexity, making time for planning may result in greater options and shorten your path to unlocking enterprise value.  We drive an efficient and pragmatic process that navigates important growth stages: from startup through maturity. We collaborate with your team in realigning direction, goals and strategies: developing alternative financial scenarios, moderating strategic working sessions and quarterly bootcamps.

The net result is A GAME PLAN FOR WINNING. We work alongside you from innovation through execution. Our approach enables your team to map out its moves to: captivate customers, outwit the competition, manage margin pressures, acquire and develop human capital and increase long-term shareholder value.

SUCCESSION PLANNING
Generational roadmapping, pre & post transaction.

The focus is on maximizing returns for key stakeholders. Personal assets may be at stake. Access to growth capital may be limited. Multiple stakeholders, generational transition and governance may cause complexity. Whether selling to a third party or transitioning to the next generation - how to realize strong returns from your hard work and ensure a successful transition?

Scion has a great approach that jumpstarts the process, enables you to evaluate viable exit scenarios and develop a manageable roadmap for achieving business and ownership goals.

We have the knowledge and expertise to engage all stakeholders in driving decisions that are best for the business: manage your process, assemble a strong team and work alongside you to clarify decisions, options and strategies.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
Developing operational & team strength.

The key to your business' success is in how you lead your team through organizational change. Developing strong, future business leadership and talent is an essential step to all transitions: whether through a growth phase or generational succession. You may need to hone new skills and competencies yourself, as it is near impossible to lead a growing organization if you are not continuing to develop as a leader.  

We enable leaders to access the resources, motivation and confidence they need to accelerate their performance, re-engage teams, and drive decisions that are best for the business.

HOW WE WORK. CLIENT TESTIMONY.

Having an executive coach to lean on for guidance throughout this past year has given me more confidence during an essential inflection point in my business and leadership. Deb is not only an experienced coach but also a tremendous business advisor, and these combined qualities have made her highly effective for me.
