Our Leadership Council Formation service empowers already-successful mid-size service firms to keep growing and even accelerate the pace of growth. For more than 20 years now, The Shattuck Group has coached upwards of 70 mid-sized service firms, those with 25-100 staff and 10-50 million in revenue. We’ve borne witness to what happens when Leadership Councils make great decisions and lead with clarity. Leadership is the difference between an organization that thrives and grows versus an organization that stagnates and withers. In any economy, any industry and any circumstance, leaders make all the difference.
Our Leadership Development service empowers mid-sized service firms to intentionally identify, coach and mentor leadership talent. This service provides a framework and formal program for unleashing human potential to achieve the outcomes that matter most in business.

For over 20 years now, The Shattuck Group has coached more 70 mid-sized service firms, those with 25-100 staff and 10-50 million in revenue.

Our Organizational Health service empowers successful mid-size service firms to get healthy, stay healthy and take control of their future so they have a long run of success. This service unlocks your growth potential and pushes through stall-outs. The Shattuck Group has served more than 70 mid-size service firms, those with 25-100 staff and 10-50 million in revenue. We’ve noticed that certain firms just seem to do better: high employee engagement, low turnover, long-term stability, plans that actually work and above average productivity and profitability. What makes these organizations different? In a word—health. Their employees love the firm and want to see it succeed.
Our Mentorship Coaching service empowers mid-sized service firms to break through organizational and cultural barriers to keep growing. After more than 20 years of serving mid-sized firms, those with 25-100 staff and 10-50 million in revenue, we’ve noticed that many firms hit a plateau that they can’t seem to rise above. Growth begins to stall out once the organization adds somewhere between their 35th to 50th employee.
Our Goal Achievement service empowers mid-sized service firms to actually achieve their most important goals so they keep on growing. After more than 20 years of serving mid-sized firms, those with 25-100 employees and 10-50 million in revenue, we’ve noticed a trend. Most leadership teams at these types of firms engage in annual strategic planning exercises. But year after year, very few of the top goals they’ve identified actually get achieved. This is quite frustrating for stakeholders. Why does this happen?
Our Managed Services Development offering empowers mid-size professional service firms to stabilize revenues, break the feast or famine cycle and build predictability into economic models. The outcome, for many of our clients, has been a significant improvement in EBITDA and greater peace of mind for leaders concerning cash-flows. After working with more than 70 mid-sized service firms, those with 25-100 staff and 10-50 million in revenue, we’ve noticed three common issues that hold service firms back from achieving their full potential.
Our Growth Planning service empowers successful mid-size service firms to create realistic strategic plans for achieving their full growth potential. For professional service firms to grow, three teams need to align around a meaningful promise to their market: the marketing function makes a promise, the sales or business development function applies the promise to each unique client and the delivery function delivers the promise. Do this and you will grow. It’s that simple.
Our Geographic Expansion service increases the likelihood that mid-size service firms will be successful in a new territory, region or even a new country. Many successful service firms have developed a few territories, or maybe a single territory. They presuppose that they can simply take the practices that they believe led to their success in existing territories and apply those to new territories. Oftentimes, the results are disappointing.
Our New Service Roll Out program prepares a new service to realize brisk uptake and maximum perceived value by ideal clients. This service is the ultimate entrepreneurial act, calling into existence that which does not exist.

Our Email Marketing service empowers mid-size professional service firms to leverage email campaigns for business gain.

A strong email marketing program produces a strong service firm.
Our Web Development service empowers mid-size professional service firms to pull ideal prospects deep into the sales funnel, preparing them for meaningful conversations. The websites we develop are far more than online brochures. We build websites that ideal prospects cannot resist.
Our Storytelling service empowers mid-size professional service firms to connect with ideal organic prospects faster and more effectively. Most service buyers make decisions based on emotion and use logic to justify their decision. But most service organizations use logic to appeal to decision-makers. This is backwards and ineffective.
