Coach Andy Clayton Made Software Part of his System

As a business coach, Andy Clayton knows the importance of using a methodology with his clients. Using a proven system to instill change is an effective way to help his clients get results. Andy uses Align to create transparency, accountability and smart communication habits in the businesses he works with.

The tools in Align help Andy lead more productive planning sessions, use data to evaluate progress at the end of each quarter and participate in remote check-ins when he can’t physically be present with them.

It’s much more powerful to come to a client with a system. Align is part of that system.

Keep the Plan Alive All Quarter Long

When it comes time to assign actions at the end of a strategic planning session, people will write down their own work and say, “Okay, leave that with me.” But more often than not, all that hard work gets passed over during the day-to-day chaos of a growing company. As a coach, you can’t be with your clients every day to ensure they’re focused on what matters.
