The Seven Navigation Challenges
Working with current founders, we identified seven development milestones that founder-CEOs need to overcome to scale their company. Although not every CEO or founder masters these challenges in the same order or at the same stage of growth, the challenge emerges somewhere along the way.

When you work with RHR, you will complete a self-audit of the seven navigation challenges. Using the self-audit and stakeholder interviews, we benchmark you against other founders and identify key areas of opportunity. From there, we will craft a customized coaching plan with you to build the skills and capabilities needed to scale.
