Executive advising at all levels ranging from Board oversight to senior management teams and beyond!

Providing overall assessment and mentoring the health of the business from the executive level perspective.
Leadership can often appear as a paradox from the Executive level. How can one obtain enough information to responsibly trust others to perform, with minimal oversight? The magic comes in learning to effectively lead remotely, drive behavior and be an agent of change.
Change is inevitable. Caliber brings 30+ years of experience to prepare companies for the unique change that lies in front of them. Our role is to act as mentor, advisor and steward to ensure your company prepares the next generation to successfully take on the opportunities that will be unique to their environment.
Analyzing and discussing how today’s ownership of the company will evolve is paramount to a healthy transition into tomorrow. Regardless of your firm’s ownership structure, Caliber has witnessed broad legacy options ranging from a sole-proprietorship, a family-owned partnership or even the complexities of an employee stock ownership programs (ESOP).
Caliber has broad-based operational experience at every level of construction ranging from an hourly laborer to ownership on Board of Directors. This experience spans everything from self-performed concrete operations to Mega Project Management and board fiduciary responsibility. This equates to a unique benefit that translates beyond understanding to empathy of what the day to day issues are and how they can transform how we lead to long term performance and vision.
No two projects are the same. Caliber has witnessed a diversity of the challenges and situations that we face daily in our industry. If individual projects cannot be profitable, then by definition, neither can the company.
Operations is the heart of any successful AEC firm. If your company struggles to integrate cohesive operations communication with other departments, we can help identify and prioritize some strategies for alignment.
We understand each company has its own nuances with these relationships. We can assist in streamlining the process to make the connections more meaningful and sustainable. Our experience tells us that most of the company’s ailments can often be self-inflicted. Discovery is often the first step to recognition and developing a path forward to improvement.
No company can function for long without first in class financial oversight.
Caliber has deep experience in all aspects of financial assistance including estimate setup, project control oversight, monthly and fiscal reporting analysis that translate directly to your bottom line.
What gets measured gets attention and gets improved!
Are you holding yourself to your Strategic Vision? If not, why not? Well, you may be surprised to hear that you are not alone. Most AEC firms have strategic meetings, some held annually or even quarterly, but if you ask their average employee, they could not tell you what was discussed by the senior leadership.
This is commonplace but does not have to be. We have created some simple exercises to eliminate the barriers and add a renewed sense of discipline and accountability.
