Is a fractional executive right for your business?

Updated: Feb 8, 2021

Every business experiences growing pains, but it doesn’t have to slow down—or derail—your strategic plans. You may be holding off on investing in executive-level talent because you don’t have the time to properly vet candidates. Or maybe you don’t have a need for a full-time executive—but you need someone.

That’s where we come in. If you need executive expertise and leadership, look no further. Greenpath Advisors will help you get the help you needed yesterday. Plus, reaching out is quick and easy.

A fractional executive offers the leadership and experience you need to stay on track with your business goals. It’s exactly what you need—when you need it—to keep your business on the upswing.

Here’s why—and how—fractional leadership works:

Executive Leadership—On Your Terms

Between sales, marketing, operations, and financial demands, your time is extraordinarily valuable—and limited. Your small-to-mid-sized business could benefit from experienced, top-level leadership, but you haven’t had the time or resources to fully build out your executive team. Sound familiar?

A fractional executive is an immediate, affordable solution to fill a leadership void in your business. This part-time or limited-time executive offers the same experience and capability as a full-time executive, stepping seamlessly into C-level roles and ramping up quickly to support your business goals.

Gaining access to a trusted resource with the specific experience and skillset you need will help fuel your businesses growth, while freeing you to focus on the parts of your business that you find most important.

Access Top Talent—Without Breaking Your Bank

Hiring a fractional executive is an investment. This is someone who will help guide you through growth to a more profitable business. At the same time, making the wrong hiring decision—especially at the C-level—is expensive and time-consuming. It could have a lasting, negative impact on your business.

But that doesn’t mean you should wait to give your business the executive leadership it needs to prosper. Fractional executives offer their experience and guidance to businesses that may not otherwise be able to access those capabilities. They are usually paid on a retainer basis plus success-oriented compensation—without the salary commitment, benefits, and overhead associated with hiring a full-time executive.

Build a Leadership Pipeline

Eventually, you’ll have the need—and the budget—for full-time executives. A fractional executive will help you get there in the most efficient and profitable way possible. How?

A fractional executive provides leadership in identifying your existing team members who are the most capable of growing with you into your next stage of business. You’ll not only receive the benefit of additional leadership and strategic thinking, but mentorship and training of staff that you already have.

For example, you may have an amazing sales person you want to transition into a first-time manager. A fractional VP of Sales can help develop that person’s leadership abilities so that when you’re ready to transition them to management, they’re ready too.

Expertise for Projects and Implementations

Do you have the time and skill set it takes to accomplish every project that will move you closer to your goals? For many business owners, the answer is “no”—and that’s ok.

A fractional executive can diversify your skillset to complete projects on-time and on-budget. You’ll benefit from their fresh, new perspective on solving problems and making decisions that can jumpstart stalled projects. Plus, a fractional executive’s strong change management skills can help your business through even the toughest transitions.

Whether it’s technology, sales, marketing, financial management, or something else, a fractional executive will help you align your business strategies and tactics with your overall goals and objectives.

The Fractional Leader—More than a Consultant

Yes, a fractional executive can chart a roadmap for both your short-term and long-term needs. They will also enable higher performance by but implementing key strategies, processes, and best practices.

You’ll receive hands-on leadership from someone with experience in a variety of organizations. Someone who can make a significant impact quickly, by guiding you in making the best decisions—and then carrying them out. That empowers you to reach high-level goals without overextending your existing staff—or yourself. You’ll experience more control of time, peace of mind, and the ability to focus on the business areas that you want to focus on.
