T ENTHEON PARTNERS, we have some core beliefs that guide our relationships, our approach to our work, and the clients we are able to best serve.

We believe that sustained, profitable growth is the most powerful and under-utilized lever for creating shareholder value, especially in today’s privately-held and sponsor-backed middle market businesses.

Even more fundamentally, we believe that customer value, shareholder wealth, and employee satisfaction rise or fall together (over time).  Great organizations manage all three.

We believe that all businesses can aspire to organizational greatness.  Our approach to formulating and implementing growth strategies most often resonates with owners and leaders who want to build truly great organizations, and who believe, with us, that the key to organizational greatness is balancing individual needs (what any one person wants) with the common good (what’s best for all).

“Ted is one of the best consultants I’ve ever met. He sees the big picture, but doesn’t hesitate to jump into the details. In a few short weeks he understood our business better than some senior hires did after 6 months of working here full time. Most consultants talk a lot and do a little. Ted is the exact opposite. He has become meaningfully involved in our sales and account management organizations, guiding us to take the steps that we need to take, over time, resulting in a sales improvement effort that is getting results.”

We believe that “everything affects everything.”  The degree of business impact often depends on the connections among strategic, economic, process, technical, and social factors.  Helping companies grow sustainably requires big picture thinking.  Our approach pushes both ourselves and our clients to view their business through “a wide angle lens.”

We believe that work should be fun and meaningful.  OK, maybe not every minute of every day.  But on a good day.  Here’s to more good days.
