Transformative Business Coaching: Unleashing the Potential of Lancaster Log Cabins
In this remarkable case study, you’ll learn about the transformative journey Lancaster Log Cabins’ manager, Dan Smucker, underwent alongside his Integro business coach, Jonas Stoltzfus.
When asked about his journey with Coach Jonas, Dan expressed some initial skepticism. But, after receiving a referral from a trusted source and then meeting with Jonas he felt the two would work well together. Especially after learning about Jonas’ “Kingdom of God mentality” – the goal of building a successful company that serves a higher purpose.
Dan took the leap. And the experience has far exceeded his expectations.
Over the course of a little more than two years, Lancaster Log Cabins has undergone significant growth and a profound shift in mindset – increasing their revenues from around $10M to close to $50M annually while also doubling their workforce.
Dan notes that one of the keys to their success was Jonas’ focus on the bigger picture. And while Dan acknowledges that he is more inclined towards the detailed, hands-on work, he appreciates the balance that Coach Jonas urged him to adopt.
One of the most significant impacts of this shift has been greatly reduced stress among him and his staff. By practicing Jonas's emphasis on delegation, Dan found the freedom to focus on Lancaster Log Cabins’ larger vision while also getting to spend more quality time with his family.
One major takeaway for Smucker was following Jonas’ suggestion to resist getting “caught in the weeds” with the day-to-day operations. This shift alone has freed up the time for big-picture thinking and the ability to focus on the strategies that led to Lancaster Log Cabins’ unprecedented growth.
“That would probably be the biggest advantage to having Jonas as my coach… You know when you’re in the thick of it, it’s kind of a catch. Because you don’t have time to delegate – and you don’t have time because you’re not delegating!”
Reflecting on these changes, Dan emphasizes the liberation he now feels. By learning to delegate effectively – a skill instilled in him by Coach Jonas – Dan now has more margin in life to focus on the strategic aspects of running his business.
Dan encourages others considering coaching to seriously contemplate partnering with Integro. He also emphasizes the long-term benefits, acknowledging that significant change requires an initial investment of time and effort. In other words, it’s not a quick fix but the results are more than worth it.
In conclusion, Dan's story exemplifies the transformative power of coaching in business. And the journey from skepticism to exceeding expectations, coupled with substantial growth and reduced stress, showcases the profound impact of a strategic coaching partnership.
