End of Year Summary 2007. Beginning of Year Changes 2008.
We are grateful again this year for the trust you have placed in Entelechy Partners. It has been our custom each year to share with clients and friends of the organization our accomplishments for the year, and any changes in strategy or plans for the year coming. With 2007 complete and 2008 ramping up quickly, we have both interesting insights from 07 and exciting plans for 08.
We are thrilled to announce that Entelechy Partners and Arkansas Business have combined resources provide a one day leadership retreat/ seminar in Little Rock on March 13, 2008. This is a new way for us to work with leaders, but clearly in line with the requests we have had from clients in 2007. Click here for more information about this first time event.
Major Milestones in 2007:
Here are some metrics from our portfolio of clients in 2007:
Industries served (by percentage of revenue delivered) 2007 saw a continued mix of industries with increasing demand from health care (about 12%) and reduced demand in financial services late in the year. Perhaps this is no surprise based on the increasing focus on expense reduction in banks with exposure to sub-prime mortgage and the increased focus on effectiveness of delivery in health care.
Services Delivered by Type:
We report the services we were requested to provide by numbers of those served, illustrating the market’s relative interest in varying leadership development efforts.
Taken together, these two trends show increased interest in leadership development as a core organizational competency.
Geographic Distribution of Clients:
Lastly, here is information about where we worked for the year. Because our network and affiliated coaches are global, and our clients are global, our delivery is global as well. Countries where we provided service in 2007 include:
Other Metrics of Interest:
Perhaps most gratifying is the level of endorsement we have received from existing clients. You may have seen the website change early in 2007 focusing the home page on client remarks and endorsements. We asked out 12 most active client organizations to participate. All 12 indicated a willingness to provide references where needed. Only one of those 12 declined to appear on the site.
