Portocol is a leading provider of Denver business coaching, training and strategy consulting programs that help your organization achieve strategic growth, develop next generation leaders, and build sustainable value. Our diverse portfolio of strategy consulting programs target each level of management within an organization to ensure successful implementation of business systems that will put your organization on the path toward achievement.

Portocol's Seven Pillars Of Management

Our own business experience and ongoing education has helped us determine what successful businesses have in common. Over the last four decades, we have built our Denver business coaching programming and intellectual property around these key characteristics of successful organizations. We have perfected what we now call the "Seven PillarsTM of Successful Management. This model is used to direct strategy, provide education, and develop initiatives at the fundamental level so that our clients' organizations can achieve strategic growth.

About Portocol Business Strategies

Portocol has been serving the Denver community for more than 10 years with state-of-the-art business strategy consulting programs designed for each level of management. At Portocol, our vision is your success. We help you achieve this by following three strategic protocols that prepare and position your business to achieve your specific goals.

  1. Success-Driven Environment

    There are two key elements that make our business strategy consulting programs so effective. First, are the peer group environments that our business training takes place in. Leaders can strategize, discuss, troubleshoot, and learn from peers who fill similar positions in different organizations and industries. This allows us to broaden the scope of the business systems and best practices we teach and ensure applicability for each of our clients.

  2. Secondly, our one-on-one Denver business coaching serves to help clients implement this training in their own organization. This model not only maintains accountability but also allows for Portocol business coaches and clients to take ownership in their roles in strategic growth.

  3. Educate & Equip Management

    A team of leaders are only as successful as their training allows them to be. Our Denver business coaching and trai programs are designed for each tier of management within an organization, as well as molded around the unique needs of the specific organization. Through our peer group environments, one-on-one coaching, and other implementation tactics, managers are equipped with the knowledge and skill set to successfully build scalable systems in their departments or organizations.

  4. Aligned By A Single Vision

    Portocol's business coaching and consulting programs are dedicated to helping client organizations achieve their highest goals and objectives. This starts by aligning the company vision with all levels of management and providing them with the training and tools they need to attain it. With all the leaders of an organization on the same page, achieving success is more streamlined and effective.

These essential elements to our strategic and consultative approach are what ensures the successful application of our Denver business coaching programs.
