Guided 1-on-1 Coaching
As an entrepreneur, you know how to manage multiple projects well. But if your business is growing fast, you’ll reach a point when you need more structure. It’s common to think hiring a coach is admitting failure, but growing businesses eventually need qualified advisors. Using my Kasennu model as a guide, I’ll personally work with you to develop solutions to manage growth profitably and sustainably.
Business Infrastructure Diagnostic
Rapid business growth is an exciting time for any company until the day you realize there is more work than you can realistically handle well. Without a good infrastructure in place, it is nearly impossible to maintain maximum efficiency and profitability. Based on my Kasennu model, I apply a seven-point diagnostic to your business operations, giving you a blueprint to employ immediately.
Etch Success Workshops
These interactive D-I-Y workshops are for those entrepreneurs and managers who want to make operational changes, but recognize they need a jumpstart. If your management is in crisis, you will need to get your entire team on board to effectively implement new changes. Workshops are customized based on topics submitted in advance with a focus on the specific solutions to address those topics.

“I reached out to Alicia while searching for a tool to help me do a business task analysis for my business. After 21 years in business, our job descriptions were weak, our organizational structure vertical and crumbling. Hiring in an attempt to grow was overwhelming new employees, frustrating the owners and not getting us anywhere. We knew we had to do something. Enter Alicia Butler Pierre. She was a workforce, a workhorse, a breath of fresh air and just plain great at helping us organize, divide and conquer job descriptions, organizational charts for growth, and task identifications. For the first time in years we feel confident about moving forward, excited to solve problems and feel like we were riding the wave rather than being pommeled into the shore. If you want to grow and need help building or strengthening your infrastructure, let Alicia help your remove the facade and build a functional foundation for growth! Not to mention she is just a super cool person too!”
Owner: C&R Fleet Services
“Alicia partnered with my company on a high visibility government project. Specifically, she served as the process improvement subject matter expert and developed a custom Quality Assurance program to ensure the client’s ability to consistently provide a positive customer experience. Her quick thinking and keen attention to detail helped us cross the finish line to deliver the project on time and within budget. Extracting the information needed to perform process work is tedious and requires skillful coordination, but with Alicia’s warm personality and good-naturedness, she blended seamlessly with our team and worked well with our client. You’ll not only learn a lot working with Alicia, but you’ll have a fun time while doing so.”

She knows how to manage a complex business transformation project effectively and communicate it to people of all levels in the company. Alicia is a positive, motivated leader with amazing potential and a joy to collaborate with. I feel lucky to have worked with her. I highly recommend her.”
