"I wanted to congratulate you on the RTP Financial Dashboard... You've really created a phenomenal tool that gives business owners a unprecedented level of insight into their business.     Our two hours spent with the tool yesterday gave me a level of understanding of my business that would previously have taken me days or weeks of Excel/QuickBooks crunching to accomplish.   After only 1 day using the tool,  I can't imagine running my business without it....   It would be like driving with my eyes closed.."

"Knowing your numbers, it’s critical to the success (or failure) of your business. Our success is truly TBG’s success. Without them, we would not be where we are today." Allen & Morray Aukes Midwest IT Systems, Inc.
"Larry Schulze and Taylor Business Group have greatly enhanced our service department's overall operation with a comprehensive, detailed examination and concise action plan. From increasing technician utilization and billable accountability to business planning with a service-centric mindset, Larry has helped our organization lay some important groundwork to prepare us for growth and success."

Darren T. Walter
Communications Supervisor

"In just 12 months, TBG has helped Next I.T. in so many ways, including improving our focus, strategy, budgeting, tactics, personnel, products, services, and sales structure - which has all led to better managing our profits and mitigating our weaknesses.

I started working with the Taylor Business Group in 2007. We were already very profitable, but suffered from a lot of turmoil inside the company. John and TBG were instrumental in helping me root out the causes of the turmoil and fix the problems. John also helped me move from a ‘service driven' to a ‘sales driven' company by helping me define and recruit a sales team. Through the help of TBG, I increased my 2008 sales and am projecting significantly higher sales (28%) in 2009."

"Working with Larry Schulze as our coach for the last two years has been a tremendous benefit to our business. We have transformed the company from a reactive sales and service company to a proactive, managed service organization. We have seen improvements in all key aspects of the business, including revenue, service utilization, and most importantly profitability. Larry has helped me focus on working on the business rather than working in the business."

David Prince

"Since our involvement with the Taylor Business Group we have more than doubled our technician's utilization rates, built a substantial recurring revenue stream and developed a very successful, proactive based service model."

Mike Doerfler
Network Technology Supervisor

"Since we began working with the Taylor Business Group, we have quadrupled our net profit, radically improved customer service and responsiveness, reduced our staff's stress levels, and gotten rave reviews from our client's on the improvements in our processes. Working with Larry has helped me to focus on the business in a way that only someone looking in from the outside can. TBG does for us, what we do for our clients - Provides the business tools and processes for success."

Eric Hanson

"I have been working with the Taylor Business Group since 2004 when I began attending their workshops, which include Managing for Profitability, Services Workshop, and Managing Sales. Within 2006, I engaged their consulting services to ensure that on a monthly basis, time was set aside in my business to focus on how and when we'd implement the things learned in these workshops. I highly recommend the Taylor Business Group as a way to regularly step outside your business to work on your business."

Alan McDonald
Simi Valley, California

"The TBG provides us with a solid foundation of strategies to improve our business. But what sets them apart is their ability to provide a detailed operational path to take advantage of their strategies. In a very short time, The TBG has helped us zero in on items to improve in our business, with operational plans to increase our success. We continue to work with the TBG because they show us how to get our business where we want it to be."

Jennifer Roback
Chief Operating Officer

"The Taylor Business Group has helped us obtain tremendous results! We knew we could improve our business, and with TBG's assistance, we have far exceeded our goals, and ahead of plan to the point we are generating profits well into six digits. Their expertise allowed us to recognize immediate results across the entire organization!"

Success by Selection Assessments

Jobs --- and the talents of the people who fill them --- are the building blocks of business success.  For your businesses to excel, it’s essential to focus on identifying better ways to secure the talent necessary for optimum performance and productivity in specific jobs.
It is clear that candidates have unique behaviors and motivators that can be matched to specific jobs . . . but seldom are!!  The challenge is to discover the talents required by a job and then match them to the talents of your candidates. The bottom line is that the right talent in the right job equals top performance, greater employee satisfaction and high retention levels.
To assist you in this job/candidate talent matching process, Taylor Business Group introduced our “Success by Selection Assessments” program.  The patented process uncovers job-related behaviors and motivators and provides feed-back to help you to understand why they are necessary for superior performance. The Job/Talent comparison process will produce questions that can be used as a guide in crafting applicable job-specific questions for an interview and generate a personalized assessment that will measure the behavioral style and workplace motivators of candidates.   As a result, comparing candidate talents to job talent requirements is straight-forward. 
The SBS Assessment service utilizes the validated, reliable TTI Success Insights™ Report provided by TTI, Ltd. --- an international organization with a proven track record along with the highly acclaimed DISC Personality Assessment Report.  This report is  used in the job matching process but also has application once the hiring process in complete since the behavioral and motivational insights in the report can be used with new employees for  coaching, talent development and performance appraisals.

DISC stands for Dominance, Influencing,
Steadiness and Conscientious. The behavior of most of the population is a combination of two or more styles; therefore, to refer to someone merely as a High D is useful in describing only their primary or core behavior. The first step of learning the DISC language is to learn the Pure Styles (High D, High I, High S, and High C) and be able to recognize a person’s primary behavior and adapt accordingly.

We tested 10 each of the most successful technical and sales talent from our client base. From that testing not only were standard benchmarks for behavioral style established but were also able to provide motivator factor benchmarks to help determine the most effective management techniques for prospective or current employees.
