Noise Reduction(TM)

Are you getting the most from your management team? Do you feel that your key people understand the pressures you face in running your business? Do they know the things that concern you, the things that keep you up at night? If they understood your concerns and acted differently, how would that improve the quality and success of your business…..and your life? 

The "Noise" is the amalgamation of all the things that prevent CEOs from doing the things they do best, the concerns that prevent them from spending time on the most profitable activities.  Studies suggest that if the CEO could spend even 10% more time on the things that impact the business the most, the profitability of the company can increase by as much as 50%.

The Noise Reduction SystemTM is a groundbreaking approach to the problem. It operates on the principle that when you delegate something, you still own it. If your people could be taught to focus on the things that are major concerns to you, take ownership of them and communicate with you proactively on them, then over time they will cease to be "noise" for the CEO.

This is the subject of the bestselling book Make The Noise Go Away by Larry Linne. He has created The Noise Reduction SystemTM to teach the principles in the book, and has helped countless CEOs confront the 'illusion of control' and run their companies more effectively by improving the performance of their direct reports so that they can concentrate on what is most important.  

Edge offers this program for managers reporting to the business owner, and CEOs report that the results have dramatically changed the way they operate their businesses. By having your key managers focus on the things that keep you up at night and report proactively on what they are doing to address them, the "Noise" will start to go away.

When this happens, the CEO becomes more productive and the value of the business increases because of the value of having a functioning and effective management team. If you want to change the management dynamic in your business and delegate the insomnia that comes with the job of running a company in these difficult times, this program is for you.

The Noise Reduction SystemTM is a ten month program that delivers and reinforces practical information that participants can use immediately.  For more information call Steve Davies on 516 208 2810 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.
