Create an unshakable, supportive and resilient partnership with your Co-Founder and other critical executives
PROACTIVELY BUILD THE SKILLS, HABITS AND TOOLS TO NAVIGATE THE STARTUP ROLLER COASTER TOGETHER
The best time to invest in building a strong relationship is before issues arise. Whether you’ve hired a critical leader or want to up-level your relationship with your Co-Founder, investing in a strong and resilient relationship will pay dividends when you hit the inevitable valleys and peaks of building a rapidly growing business.
RESOLVE SEEMINGLY INSURMOUNTABLE CONFLICT
Friction with Co-Founders and critical execs is emotionally taxing and takes focus away from growth. It threatens the success and viability of your company. Within a skillfully facilitated coaching engagement, the most threatening fears and feedback can be expressed and addressed collaboratively and productively.
IF YOU WANT TO GO FAST, GO ALONE. IF YOU WANT TO GO FAR, GO TOGETHER.
Co-Founder & COO,
“Working with Dane and Decode has been an enlightening experience. When my COO and I started working with Dane, our relationship was in a challenging phase. Working together with Dane, we were supported in having productive hard conversations, align on a common vision and build the communication skills necessary to operate as partners. Dane has helped me grow as a leader, prioritize the important, and live a happier and healthier life along the way”
Co-Founder & CEO
“Dane has been one of the strongest sources of support for both Tammy (my co-founder) and I through our company building journey thus far. Co-coaching sessions with Dane have helped us make space for the important deeper conversations that can get otherwise forgotten in the day to day operations. These conversations have strengthened our relationship and established the right foundation for us to build a lasting company together."
