Course for Presidents

Run your business, don't let it run you

Many business owners get so involved in the day-to-day operations of running the business that you never have time to focus on what’s really important: Creating a sustainable and profitable organization. How do you shift your focus from working “in” the business to working “on” the business? The answer is professional management.


This flagship two-day Course for Presidents program focuses on the fundamentals of Aileron's Professional Management System, also known as DOC. This system provides a framework to manage and grow your business. Running a professionally managed organization will allow you to:

  • Simplify and control your business.
  • Gain operational clarity and organizational discipline.
  • Position your company for long-term success.
  • Reduce your stress and create more free time.
  • Explain the value of implementing professional management in your organization. 
  • Apply new knowledge to identify areas of improvement in you and your organization.
  • Justify implementing professional management in your organization.
  • Self-assess your company’s strong and weak areas.
  • Recognize Aileron's support available to help you through implementation of the professional management system.
  • Relate to other business owners / CEOs / presidents who share similar issues and challenges.
