The Tap the Potential Solution™

Dr. Sabrina has developed the Tap the Potential™ Solution to transforming a cash- and life-sucking business into a highly profitable, great place to work. The solution consists of the execution of 5 strategies: Click here to see these strategies.

When properly executed, the Tap the Potential Solution™ allows for significant top-line revenue growth (no matter how tight the labor market), coupled with strong profit growth.

Topline revenue and profit growth rarely happen simultaneously when an entrepreneur doesn’t have the Tap the Potential Solution™ in place! Usually the opposite happens… revenue grows and profit shrinks or worse…debt accumulates rapidly!

When properly executed, the Tap the Potential Solution™ allows for significant business growth, WHILE freeing up the owner’s time.

When navigating growth alone, typically the opposite happens … as the business grows, the demands on the owner’s time increase exponentially. You end up with less and less of a life, always feeling as though you are chasing an elusive dream of freedom that is always just out of reach.

The Tap the Potential Solution™ is responsible for the powerful Success Stories we share with you with respect to our clients experiencing strong revenue growth, exploding profit, hiring A-Players and taking 4 Week Vacations™.

The bottom line… Tap the Potential Solution™ creates strong revenue growth WITH strong profit growth AND more time freedom for you.

Our clients in our Better Business, Better Life™ Program have access to Dr. Sabrina and the Tap the Potential team for guidance in successfully implementing the Tap the Potential Solution™.

Other ways in which our Better Business, Better Life™ Program is unique...

While the Tap the Potential Solution™ makes what we do HIGHLY UNIQUE and SPECIALIZED with respect to the solution that is available to entrepreneurs, there are other key ways in which our Better Business, Better Life™ Program is unique in the entrepreneurial space.

Unlike other coaching and training companies, Tap the Potential is renowned for our attention to impactful, actionable learning, specifically designed for the entrepreneurial business owner eager to advance your company, while dealing with the daily complexity of a growing business, juggling multiple responsibilities, and excessive demands on your attention.

Founded by The Business Psychologist™, Dr. Sabrina Starling, Tap the Potential’s Better Business, Better Life™ Program is grounded in time-tested psychological principles, combined with attention to cutting-edge research on how we learn, grow and evolve.

Our program is crafted to laser focus your attention on action steps customized to your business that generate the greatest impact.

When you join our Better Business, Better Life™ Program we will conduct our signature TAP YOUR PROFIT POTENTIAL ANALYSIS™ of your business and deliver a customized ACTION PLAN to move your business from relying on your daily attention to growing organically and profitably without your daily involvement.

In short, we know HOW to deliver life-changing business transformations…fast!

We know unexpected events will trip you up. AND, we know how to get you through them so that you hit your goals – no matter what curveballs life throws your way.

You’re different and we are, too.

We are not a “one size fits all” coaching company, taking a cookie cutter approach to your business.

When you work with us in our Better Business, Better Life™ Program, you can be confident we take into account the unique circumstances of your business and your life – even your own personality and leadership style – to make recommendations specifically tailored to your needs.

You need a great team.

Tap the Potential offers that rare combination of business growth services combined with the deep knowledge of how to hire the best and engage employees to build a great team—all of this delivered within a no-fail system to grow your profit and put you on a trajectory to free up your time.

FREEDOM awaits you!

Powerful transformations happen during the course of a year with us.

First off, our groups are SMALL. You will be in a group with 3 other business owners, so you get plenty of individual attention in these VIRTUAL meetings.

Are you a family ownership team? Do you have a co-owner?

You’ll be excited to hear that we want all of you joining us in group! No one gets left out of the decision-making when it comes to driving your business toward your goals. We want all owners’ strengths coming into play to transform your business and propel you toward your goals.

Dr. Sabrina and her team GET PEOPLE. We handpick group membership to set each client up for success. We take into account personality, stage of business, current challenges, and each client’s area of strength that will be an asset to the other members of the group.

You benefit from our coaching, along with the experience and wisdom of your peers.

Plus, you have a trusted peer group pulling for your success, cheering you on through your successes and picking you up, dusting you off and encouraging you when you get knocked down.

You can’t help but be accountable to take action to move your business forward from week to week.

Join an exclusive group of entrepreneurs who are focused on transitioning their business into an asset that creates wealth and time freedom.

Very few people understand entrepreneurs and the challenges we face—especially our family and friends. Our Better Business, Better Life™ Program is the place where you can connect with people who experience the same things as you and have similar aspirations and challenges.

You will be masterminding with other A-Player business owners to share best practices to grow your business in the healthiest, most profitable way.

By the way, we do something else a little different… we serve clients across various industries. This is a great benefit to you!

In fact, a study published in the Harvard Business Review (Nov 21, 2014) touts the benefits of this cross-industry masterminding for innovation and problem-solving, as well as standing out among your competition in your industry.

We don’t recycle the same concepts you hear over and over at your industry conferences. Our cross-industry masterminding keeps you continually exposed to fresh ideas and ways to stand out in your industry. It’s no wonder you will discover industry leaders in our groups (although, they wouldn’t be likely to tell you this themselves. Our clients are humble).

Our Masterminding is different, too…

We don’t just brainstorm solutions to challenges. WHY?

The questions we ask determine the solutions we find.

In the typical Mastermind, a member throws out a challenge and group members jump in with problem-solving. But, what if the question being asked is the wrong question? is too narrowly focused? or only focuses on resolving a symptom of a much deeper problem?

Tap the Potential is pioneering the way to more effective Masterminding for entrepreneurs by utilizing Q-Storming® , a process developed by Dr. Marilee Adams of the Inquiry Institute.

Q-Storming® is based on the premise that “every question missed is a crisis waiting to happen.” It is a method for discovering questions to make breakthrough differences in decision-making, problem-solving, strategic planning, innovation, operational excellence, and culture.

Typically, questions open thinking, while answers often close down thinking. Q-Storming® is a tool for moving beyond limitations in perception and thinking and advancing to novel and extraordinary solutions and answers. It focuses on:

  • getting clear about all the questions that need to be raised and answered to form an impactful goal
  • eliciting, discovering, and developing new questions to reach that goal
  • converting these new questions into actionable items

Q-Storming® is similar to brainstorming, yet more powerful.

Q-Storming® instills the mindset of holding oneself and others accountable.

The Q-Storming® we use with our clients transforms their mindset and changes how they lead — for the better.

REAL Coaching Happens in our SMALL Groups...

Dr. Sabrina Starling is an ICF Professional Certified Coach, as well as a Board Certified Coach. ICF is the International Coach Federation, which is the gold standard in the coaching industry. ICF provides a Code of Ethics for coaches to follow. Tap the Potential follows the ICF Code of Ethics. There are no ethical guidelines that coaches are required to follow, so you want to work with a coach who values their professional affiliations.

Our strategists pursue additional training in ICF-Certified Coach Training Programs.

Coaching can be like the “Wild West.” Anyone can call themselves a coach and many do. Your next door neighbor can lose his job tomorrow and decide to be a business coach the next day. Furthermore, many programs claim to offer “group coaching” or “masterminds”, which are nothing more than glorified Q&A sessions on a call with 20+ participants. Our coaching groups are SMALL on purpose.

You need to know who you’re really dealing with. Does the coach walk their talk? Is the coach running a healthy, profitable business? Here’s a shocker: there are many “rockstar” business coaches going broke in “internet-land.” They can drive a 6-figure launch and will proudly tell you about it all over social media, while they are building 7-figure debt!

We walk our talk and we’re proud of that. Because of that we have a deep appreciation for what you experience as we work with you through this transformation in your business.

Be the Leader You Need to Be to Have
the Business that Gives You Your Life Back

At the heart of every highly profitable great place work is an owner who recognizes, “I don’t know what I don’t know” and recognizes she or he has blindspots that interfere with goal attainment.

At Tap the Potential, our clients enjoy the safety of our Better Business, Better Life™ Program to get real, take risks and be vulnerable to receive powerful feedback that enhances their personal growth and leadership.

THIS IS THE EXPERIENCE OUR CLIENTS CONSISTENTLY EXPRESS APPRECIATION FOR THE MOST. Nowhere else can an entrepreneur get this type of feedback within a safe, supportive environment from other entrepreneurs who totally GET what you are going through, and have no vested interest in the outcome — other than wholeheartedly supporting you in succeeding to attain your goals.

How to Hire the Best

PEOPLE. It comes down to PEOPLE

The quality of your team members determines how successful you will be in creating a highly profitable, great place to work.

Clients in our Better Business, Better Life™ Program enjoy tapping into Dr. Sabrina’s and the Tap the Potential Team’s years of experience in addressing the myriad of people challenges that arise in a growing business.

Never one to accept status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients growth and profitability.

What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses — no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing — and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating great places to work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

Her latest book…. is an Amazon international bestseller!
How to Hire the Best: The Contractor’s Ultimate Guide to Attracting Top Performing Employees. In this powerful book, Dr. Sabrina shares crucial hiring strategies to transform your small business AND improve your personal life.

Dr. Sabrina and the Tap the Potential team know what it takes to find, keep and get exceptional performance out of your biggest investment — your team members.

When you are participating in our Better Business, Better Life™ Program, we’ve got your back when it comes to growing a highly engaged team working from their strengths!

New clients coming into our program enjoy taking the Peoplemap™ Assessment to identify strengths and Achilles’ Heels. We use this insight to support you in building a team that leverages your strengths and compensates for your Achilles’ Heels.

This makes work fun again -- for everyone on your team!
