Con Lynch

OUR HISTORY

Our founder, Con Lynch, conceived and developed Insight Business Transitions from 35 years of estate and business planning as well as his own very personal family ranch experience. The three-generation ranch he was raised on did not survive into the fourth generation due to a number of factors, including premature death of the major operator, lack of communication among family members and incomplete strategic planning.

The sale of the ranch, instead of its transfer to the next generation, inspired Con to create the concepts and processes of Insight Business Transitions. Today he takes pride in helping other farm and ranch businesses plan for the future so their businesses can continue to be a source of pride and economic support for many future generations.

  • Stone of Accord Transition Program™
  • Successful Habits Program™
  • Future-Proof Seminar™

In pre-Christian Ireland, Stones of Accord were used to create a contract or agreement between individuals by shaking hands through the hole in the stone.

The concept of “accord” in relationships is paramount and the foundation of the Insight Approach™. We include the input and insights of multiple players involved in your business. Taking into account their specific views and comments, we are able to look forward and be proactive in planning for your future.

The Stone of Accord Transition Program™ combines five key phases with our proprietary tools to help us prepare a comprehensive plan for your business.

To continue to be successful, you must create habits that allow you to evaluate your progress and adjust accordingly.

The Successful Habits Program™ helps businesses continue the success of their previous planning through ongoing support.

In this program, we provide updates for the business on a one-on-one basis by conducting speed updates for our previous recommendations and planning. These updates often occur annually, or more frequently if a business has immediate needs or issues and serves as an opportunity for your business to meet regularly to refresh your milestones and planning.

Our annual Future-Proof Seminar™ is designed to help you anticipate and plan for economic and business trends that we foresee. Attending this seminar will allow you to continually plan for the complex and rapid changes in your economic and business environment.

STONE OF ACCORD PHASES

Phase 1 – Initial Analysis Set a realistic vision for the future
We use our Baseline Analysis Process™ to gain initial insight into your business and its structure. We review your current business goals, documents, plans, mission statements and financial information to get a 360-degree view of your business that will influence future planning.
 
Phase 2 – Stakeholder Input See operations from the frontline
In our Frontline Audit™, we interview key business members and employees to get their insights into the operation of the business. We also interview your primary professional advisors (usually, your accountant, attorney, insurance agent, lender and financial planner), so their historical perspective is included.
 
Phase 3 – Custom-Crafted Strategy Leverage your capabilities
Based on the information we receive and review from Phases 1 & 2 of the program, we use our Bypass Mindset Formula™ to evaluate the capabilities of your stakeholders and business and formulate recommendations and suggestions custom-crafted for your business.If everyone is in agreement, we proceed to Phase 5 of the program – Managed Implementation. If not, we proceed to Phase 4 to facilitate any additional commitments and agreements that may be necessary.
 
Phase 4 – Resolve Obstacles Tailored revisions
If there are any obstacles or disagreements relating to strategies, we reformulate recommendations and facilitate tough decisions.
 
Phase 5 – Managed Implementation Succeed with milestones
We outline and set milestones and accountability structures using our Strategic Milestone Tracker™ so recommendations can be monitored and implemented. We evaluate what resources and people will be necessary to implement the strategies, decide on the completion dates for key milestones and determine how success will be measured.If necessary, we will continue to work with you to deal with any implementation issues and adjust recommendations.
