Stop Losing People, Productivity, And Profit During Mergers And Acquisitions

 M&A failure rates can range from 50-80%.
Ace Coaching works with companies in transition to create the best outcome for everyone involved.

Failure to plan is planning to fail!

Stockholder value is retained when a plan is in place before the M&A. 

Mergers and acquisitions are always personal. Dina Readinger of Ace Coaching has been through multiple mergers and acquisitions and is a certified coach for managing the most difficult part of this business decision: the human element.


About Ace Coaching Company

History has been known to repeat itself. No matter how many mistakes have been made by companies going through a merger or acquisition, the same lack of planning contributes to ultimate failure. Employees live in fear of the unknown and have constant uncertainty of losing their jobs.

Ace Coaching optimizes companies in transition by taking a different approach. We focus on the keys to protecting stockholders, coaching through fear, creating certainty with uncertainty, fixing the "broken thinking", and solving the right problem at the right time.  Ace Coaching excels in optimizing team performance and creating self and socially aware leaders. 

Schedule an appointment, call or email us to find out how Ace Coaching can build a plan to help you retain the best talent, maintain productivity, and ensure profitability during your company’s transition.
