Sustainable Business Success
Our Goal is Your Sustainable Business Success
The tagline in our logo explains our Goal of “Sustainable Business Success“, but what does that actually mean?
Sustainable means able to operate indefinitely. For us, that means an acceptable profit, workload and stress. We offer monitoring and business optimization tools to maintain this state. As a business ratchets up in size, it might reach several sustainable plateaus.
Different types of enterprises define success in different ways. A NFP might call it funds raised for their charitable work. A local government might define it as ratepayer satisfaction. A private company might define it as profit. The moral is that success is measured differently for different types of enterprise.
Individual Business Leaders might also define success differently. Some want to continue to grow. Others have worked hard and now want a better lifestyle rather than just more growth. Some are looking to sell the business and make a good exit that leaves them comfortably off.
The lesson is that success means different things to different leaders.
12Faces recognizes this. We offer you a choice of advisory options so you can assemble a business that maximizes your personal definition of success.the tag line
Who will Benefit from 12Faces?
If you fit this picture, 12Faces will help.
You are the leader of a medium sized business or department. Say over $1million in turnover and 5 or more staff
You know there are problems with your business, like cashflow to pay wages and taxes when they fall due, but you aren't sure how best to fix these problems.
You can't brainstorm with your staff so you need inspiration from elsewhere.
You work long hours but there are still many things to do that you wish you could get off your back, if you only had a trusted advisor to help.
All of this uncertainty is piling stress on your shoulders and reducing your quality of life.
What Critical Business Aspects does 12Faces Cover?
We group the skills necessary to lead a successful business into 12 categories. That is the origin of our brand name; 12Faces
Six relate to the business. Weaknesses in any of these areas will damage your business (remember the adage “a chain is no stronger than its weakest link”).

- Operations like workflow, variable costs, inventory
- Overheads like office costs and R&D
- Systems like IT and accounting
- People issues like motivation, hiring and
- Plan & measure, finances, planning and monitoring
The other six relate to the leader and their team. In other words they apply to the individual, not the business as a whole. We offer Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to improve personal skills.

- Self management like time management and working efficiently and effectively
- Leadership of and by staff
- Planning to maximize sustainable business success; however success is measured
