While our book, Work the System, provides an in-depth primer to help entrepreneurs take control of their systems, it became abundantly clear that people needed help getting started.
The problem is that conventional one-on-one business consulting and coaching is so expensive that it’s out of the question for most small business owners and new entrepreneurs. This leaves them floundering, trying to surmount huge challenges all by themselves.
We’d previously focused our attention on working with larger companies to implement the Work the System methodology. While we were seeing (and are still seeing) exceptional results, we realized that the $100K+ price tag meant that small business owners couldn’t benefit from this profound transformation.
We needed an effective solution that was affordable and accessible to everyone — no matter the size of their company.
We decided it was time to offer an online solution tailored to small business owners who needed help taking control of their systems to regain authority over their businesses.
The WTS 120-Day Transformational Group Coaching (TGC) Live Program was born.
Fast-forward 10 years later and we’ve run the program more times than we can count, tweaking and improving the materials as we learn.
We’ve now helped countless small business owners understand and implement this proven method to completely transform their businesses.
Don’t take it from us, take it from them:
WTS 120-Day Transformational Group Coaching (TGC) Live! is a 4-month intensive coaching program that’s designed to transform small businesses.
The program is made up of 17 live interactive group coaching sessions with Josh Fonger and 6 private one-on-one consulting sessions with a trained expert Certified Business Systems Professional. You’ll also get access to all session recordings, templates, resources, guides, and examples.
Created to help iron out the inefficiencies across your business, this coaching program will give you the exact methodologies, tools, and tactics to remove chaos so you can drive sustainable profits and scale your operations.
During this program, you’ll learn how to:
In the first session we’ll introduce you to the Work the System Methodology and discuss the importance of adopting a “systems mindset.” We’ll discuss this new way of thinking until the mindset comes naturally and unforced so you can see reality more accurately.
In this session you will use our proven template to craft your Strategic Objective (SO). Your SO is your single most important document. It establishes the direction of your business and overall strategy. I’ll show you how to create a SO that will help you clarify:
The SO is not a mission statement (which is usually a waste of time). Instead, this single-page document will determine your whole business: the money it grinds out, the employees you have, the clients you serve. Everything. It will be your “guidebook” and is essential for any successful business.
In this session I will help you refine the Strategic Objective you’ve crafted and answer any questions that may have come up as you produced this vital business document.
I’ll walk you through:
We’ll also go over examples of Strategic Objectives others have made so you can get ideas on how to tweak yours so it’s perfect.
Time is your most valuable, non-renewable resource. When managed well you feel there’s always enough time to get the important things done. But when mismanaged, you’ll always feel like you’re behind.
So in this session you’ll acquire the practical skills that will help you make more time so you can get this program done and finally systematize your business.
In this session you’ll walk away with:
Most problems in your business likely stem from poor communication, which in turn stems from a failure to create some fundamental ground rules about how decisions in your business should be made. You may expect your team to act a certain way, because that’s what you would do, but unless you translate your thoughts into concrete principles, it’s unfair to expect that.
During this session I’ll walk you through the process of creating your General Operating Principles so you can:
Here’s where we’ll show you how to implement the Operating Principles you created in the last session. We’ll walk through specific examples from actual companies so you can see how this document works in the real world.
I’ll show you how to:
Working Procedures (WPs) are the third critical document in the Work the System Methodology. This session is all about “how” to assemble them. You’ll discover it’s not just about writing what you do, but about ironing out the inefficiencies as you go through the process.
After working with over 700 business owners, CEOs and entrepreneurs I’ve learned a valuable lesson: leadership matters! As I’ve worked directly with so many business owners to help them implement the WTS methodology, I’ve observed some common habits, skill-sets and techniques of strong leaders and distilled those observations into a few simple but powerful insights.
In this session I’ll show you:
In this session we’ll talk about the best technology and tools to help you implement and manage the Work the System Methodology in your business. Instead of wasting hours researching and testing tools and technology on your own I’ll show you what works best (remember I’ve done this for hundreds of businesses).
You’ll be trained on:
The Work the System mindset can, and should, be applied to every facet of your business, including sales and marketing. In this session I’ll show you how to design effective systems that will facilitate healthy and sustainable growth for your business.
This is where we will:
You will be using the Work the System framework to hire, train and manage your staff. In this session I’ll show you how to create effective People Systems so you can start:
There are two root problems in a business. The first is not being clear about desired outcomes and the second is poor communication. In this session you’ll find out how to once and for all solve your communication problems.
It’s in this session where you will:
The Work the System Method will not just provide immense value to you as a business owner, but it will also improve the experience your clients have. Starbucks is a great example of this. You can see that both employees and customers are happy. Everybody wins!
In this session we’ll focus on designing the best possible experience for your customers.
I’ll show you how to:
Up to this point most of what you’ll have learned has had to do with recurring processes (systems which contain repeating 1, 2, 3 linear steps). But what about all the other “stuff” that comes your way? In this session you’ll learn how to effectively manage everything that happens on a day-to-day basis, including those processes that can’t be shoehorned into any of your working procedures.
In this session you will be trained on:
Peter Drucker said, “You can’t manage what you can’t measure.” So if you want to manage your systems properly you must find a way to measure the results. This will also allow you to make incremental improvements as time goes on.
In this session I’ll show you how to:
The same principles you will have learned for business systems hold true for your personal systems too. In this session we’ll talk about how to apply the Work the System Method to your health, relationships and anything else you do.
In this part of the program you will:
Far before you approach the end of your 4-month training, you’ll notice big improvements in your business and life. However, we want to make sure you experience sustainable improvements over the long haul, and this is done through installing and managing Maintenance Systems.
In this final session I’ll show you:
If you can't attend one of the live group coaching sessions, that’s OK.
You'll have access to all of the session recordings, guides, templates, and presentations, so you can review the material at any time.
Not only will you get 17 live group coaching sessions with Josh, each program participant also gets six private one-on-one coaching sessions with an experienced Certified Business Systems Professional (cBSP).
A cBSP is a systems expert specifically trained and certified in the Work the System method.
In these sessions, you’ll choose a cBSP to work with on the unique aspects of your business to deal with the individual challenges you may be facing.
Your cBSP will help you to understand issues such as:
Not only will you get six 25-minute one-on-one coaching sessions, you’ll also be able to email Josh directly at any time.
Email Support: You will have Josh’s private email address and you can email him directly about anything you want while you’re in the program. You can take advantage of this benefit as often as you’d like.
To amplify the results of your coaching, all participants get access to our supplementary support package while enrolled.
Systems Mindset Mastermind
While enrolled in your group coaching course, you’ll get access to our Systems Mindset Mastermind.
This is a group virtual meeting led by Business Systems Architect, Josh Fonger, where our experienced alumni pose questions about real-world challenges. Josh works directly with the group to tackle these questions head-on, brainstorming actionable solutions to overcome these hurdles.
Systems Mindset Members Center
The Members Center provides you with ongoing access to all current course and curriculum materials, along with all group session video recordings.
There’s also a library of previous course materials and trainings, plus a wealth of extra resources and WTS alumni procedure examples to serve as inspiration for your own systems.
Systems Mindset Mastery Club Private Facebook Group
Mastery Club is a private Facebook group where you join like-minded entrepreneurs and business owners dedicated to growing systematically using the Work the System Method.
Not only will you benefit from the experience and insight of this diverse support network, you’ll also have access to our monthly topical group training sessions, tailored to the needs of the group.
Q: What will the 120-Day Transformational Group Coaching (TGC) Live! sessions be like?
Zoom is used so there will be audio and visual elements. Some of the presentations will be discussions, some will be structured lectures, and others will be reviews of group participants’ actual documentation. There are 17 presentation sessions. Sessions are always “live” so you can interact with Josh and the group. (The sessions are not pre-recorded like many online training programs.)
Q: Is there email and/or phone support available during the program?
Yes, there is unlimited email and phone support available.
Q: What if I can't attend some of the sessions?
All live sessions are recorded and then distributed to the group after each session. Also all examples, templates, worksheets, handouts, etc., are delivered to you on a weekly basis.
Q: What will the 6 private one-on-one calls with my coach be like?
You’ll pick an expert coach (cBSP) who best fits with your style of learning and book sessions to meet with them at your convenience. Your cBSP will use these sessions to provide actionable, tactical advice that shapes your customized next steps. These meetings are also designed to hold you accountable and to make sure you’re doing the work needed to ensure your own transformation.
Q: When will I start to see improvements?
Of course this varies, but most coaching clients see initial improvements in efficiency and profits within the first 30 days. But ultimately, you’re putting your business on a new trajectory that will enable it to grow in sales and profit, as well as reduce your efforts month-over-month and year-over-year.
Q: If I have a startup business is it too soon to sign up for this?
If you are serious about designing a business you can scale based on documented systems, and you have a general idea of the path you should follow to accomplish this, then it’s not too early. If your startup is still in the exploratory and experimentation stage, then wait until your business is more developed before embarking on this 120 day program.
Q: What if I own a larger business doing over $3M in annual revenue?
If your business has an annual turnover of over $3 million, please contact our Business Solutions Team to discuss our enterprise options.
Q: OK. Put it in a nutshell. Why should I do this?
Here’s what you can expect from a properly executed systemization: Increase sales and profit margins, remove chaos, eliminate waste, improve internal efficiencies, create a stand-alone business that is separate from you and has intrinsic value as a cash-generating “machine,” decrease the number of hours you spend working, drop personal stress, implement potent sales processes, establish clear direction that is scalable and profitable, watch employees become empowered and enthusiastic about the structure you’ve put in place, find yourself making quick clear-headed decisions….and discover, as a byproduct of the Transformation, that you’re spending far less time killing fires and much more time building your business and your personal life.
Q: What's your refund policy for this program?
We offer a 100% money-back guarantee. If you’re not satisfied for any reason, please contact us within the first 30 days of the start of the program.

Waiting is a kind of dying. Indecision is a decision. When you let enough time go by as you wring your hands and say, “Well, I just don’t know,” the opportunity will pass and your decision will have been made. Procrastination is the passive assassin of happiness.
