Our Approach

Our mission is to inspire great business performance and wealth creation through economic engagement. We get everyone involved in the business, with the goal of dramatically increasing value for shareholders, employees, and customers.

–Bill Fotsch, Head Coach

Before I explain how Open-Book Coaching works, let me just say that I love being a business coach.

I’ve seen so many struggling companies suddenly get better. I’ve seen so many good companies turn into great ones. Owners, managers, employees—everyone has more fun. And everyone makes more money.

I went out on my own to set up a business that would operate a little differently from most consulting and coaching firms. Here are four points of difference:

1. We offer our own rigorous, time-tested methodology

It’s tailored to the immediate needs of your company. The boost in performance is usually quick—and significant.

2. We keep your costs low

New technologies such as Skype and screen sharing allow us to do much of our work remotely. Of course, if you want us on site, we’ll be there. Whatever works best for you.

3. We offer a no-nonsense guarantee of client satisfaction

If you’re not happy with our work during any given month, just ignore our invoice. We want to get paid for results, not time spent.

4. We believe in transparency and common sense


If you hire us, we will guide you on a five-step journey—if that’s what you need. If you’re already a ways down the open-book path, we’ll start wherever you need help. We specialize in implementing economic engagement from scratch—and improving existing programs.
