Single Support Call

Do you want guidance on a single issue right away?

A Single Support Call is a convenient and available resource for founders who want an experienced outside perspective today on a issue that is in front of them.

One 60-minute call can bring you clarity and direction that will break your roadblock.

“There are times we need someone to give us the right answer, and there are times we need them to give us the right question. David has an uncanny ability to know which is which, and to provide exactly what’s needed exactly when it’s needed.”

Patrick Cummings

What would it be like to solve this issue?

Often, issues can be like a rock in your shoe – theoretically small, but significant enough to keep you from running.

And I’m practical – it’s not enough to know “to take the rock out of your shoe” but that how to take it out is often the most important thing.

Making progress on a problem like that can be freeing, allow you to pay attention to what really matters.

How does the Single Support Call work?

It’s straightforward – you book and pay for a convenient time through the calendar above, and then we’ll talk through your question.

You’ll leave with more clarity and a direction forward.

If, at any point during or after the call, you’d like to engage in one of the Advisory Programs, you can use the $200 fee as a credit towards the cost of the program you pick.

What is the ROI of coaching?

Confidentiality & Guarantee

I am your coach and I work for you.

If, at the end of our call, you are not happy with what we discussed, I will refund your money, no questions asked.

I will not share anything from our coaching, publicly or privately, and I’m happy to sign an NDA for sensitive topics that require one.

During longer engagements, I’m also happy to speak to others in your business if we both agree that doing so would help make progress with certain goals.  Alternatively, our coaching relationship can be entirely between us, with no one having any awareness of it, even if someone were to ask me directly.  It’s your choice.

“There are times we need someone to give us the right answer, and there are times we need them to give us the right question. David has an uncanny ability to know which is which, and to provide exactly what’s needed exactly when it’s needed.”

Patrick Cummings

“Under David’s leadership I knew my work would make an impact. David has a great ability to look at goals from a high level and put the right resources in place to ensure success.  David gets my highest recommendation, and I am happy to be involved in any company that has his name attached to it.”

Jule Slootbeek

“We (the board) gave David very aggressive performance targets on an austere budget, and he delivered time and again, much to our surprise; he was simultaneously able to reduce fixed overhead, improve KPIs (reduce warranty claims, reduce shipping costs, improve fulfillment metrics), and drive new product innovation, again, in a very austere environment.  David’s efforts were instrumental in maximizing equity value for our shareholders and I’d highly recommend him as an operator, leader and steward for your business.”

Joe Franciskovich

“David’s role was extensive and included putting a management structure in place, implementing and monitoring sales targets communicating and building relationships with both our suppliers and customers all over the world, increasing GP and turnover.”

Julia Kite

“David’s super power was always having the right strategy/idea, but coaching us to come up with it on our own.  David has the natural ability to empower leaders to think more strategically, problem solve creatively, and plan ahead so that they are constantly moving forward.   There’s no doubt his coaching led us to greater productivity,  success, and fulfillment in our roles . You will never find another coach with the business acumen or people skills David will bring to your team.”

Stacy Scott

“A great communicator who gives clear and concise direction but remains open to input. David has integrity in his work and all aspects of business.”

Rick Couto

“I cannot recommend David Foster’s leadership skills highly enough. Our company struggled with low morale issues stemming from lack of role clarity and accountability.  We struggled with making the vital decisions to move to market quickly and achieve our growth targets. We operated by committee, challenged by continuous finger-pointing, and progress was slow to be made. 

David came into this small, ambitious, founder-led company and was able to bring the necessary perspective to quickly and thoroughly assess and navigate the complex issues of our expanding business model. 

Our leadership team had been so conditioned to repeat the patterns of the early stage founder, that we could not see the issues we needed in order to create change. David stepped in to observe, listen, ask questions, and facilitate the collective discussion of the invisible challenges we faced every day.

David quickly established a new leadership structure with clear roles and defined accountability. With this, leaders were given zones of play with the authority to make decisions and move the company forward faster and more efficiently. 

If you feel you have a great company, but challenged to move forward and achieve the growth you deserve, I highly recommend you call David to help your team understand and overcome barriers to success.  Working with David, you’ll grow faster and with greater ease across your team.

The financial and life satisfaction benefits from coaching are far greater than its cost and time commitment

Coaching improves business performance, including employee engagement, retention, customer satisfaction, reputation and profitability, and that allows you to achieve a better work-life balance.

According to the ICF Global Coaching Study, a client “can typically expect an ROI in the range of 344% or 3.44 times the amount spent.”  For companies, it is even more: “The ROI for companies is quite a bit higher with a median return of 7 times the initial investment.”

The Manchester Review calculated that coaching returns 5.7 times the cost of engagement. 

A MetrixGlobal study: “The Bottom Line: Coaching produced a 529% return on investment and significant intangible benefits to the business.”

Founders are smart, capable and usually life-long learners – coaching can help you become more successful, accelerate your growth and find balance while doing so.
