    Embrace Pain & Uncertainty

    Posted by Doug Meyer on Aug 5, 2020 9:53:14 AM

    The Importance of Post-Acquisition Integration

    Posted by Doug Meyer on Mar 4, 2020 10:29:12 AM

    The adrenaline rush you get when closing on an acquisition (or merger) is exhilarating.

    Excitement builds as you make the formal announcement to the team and send the press release. The congratulations start pouring in and all the endorphins rush in. If only this were the punctuation at the end of the sentence. It’s more like a new chapter that is yet to be written.

    Enjoy your post close rush, but know that success is in what follows, not the successful completion of the acquisition.

    Often, business leaders are not prepared for this next phase in the transaction, which happens to be the most difficult.  Integration, or as we prefer to say, unification, is the next and most important phase. Closing the deal is now a success that lives in the past and future success is properly unifying the teams and driving the intended benefits.

    Posted by Miranda Hawk on May 17, 2018 1:41:10 PM

    Two weeks ago I had the privilege of spending a full day investing in myself. I learned from leaders across the globe who have paved the way before me and were willing to share their stories and lessons on how I can lead myself more effectively, so that I may lead others. Learning new perspectives and valuable tips for self-evaluation and growth fueled my fire.
