Monte Wyatt, CEO and Co-Founder
“Leadership creates passionate and focused team members while management creates competent and productive team members,” begins Monte Wyatt, CEO and Co-Founder, AddingZEROS. Unfortunately, this is the factor that several organizations still fail to realize and perceives both as the same. This is where employee engagement strategies fall short.
The commitment to employee engagement begins with leadership. A true leader influences, motivates, and enables team members to open up their minds to new perspectives by instilling passion and spirit in them. This fosters positive change across an organization. So, the most important step toward employee engagement is executive engagement.
This is where AddingZEROS steps in. This executive development firm is filling the gap between leadership and management of today’s work environment by coaching executives on personal and business development and creating organizational discipline. AddingZEROS provides businesses with clarity on their future journey and direction while aligning executive and management teams with the organization’s goals and priorities.
Led by Monte’s strategic leadership, who holds more than two decades of experience in business and personal development, AddingZEROS primarily focuses on businesses in the mid-market ($10M - $1B in revenue). “They want to grow fast. And CEOs have desire and passion not only for their personal growth but for the growth of the entire team. We assist in creating and achieving their big vision for the future,” he adds.
AddingZEROS focuses on preparing organizations for the future through a threefold promise, i.e., advance a career, transform a company, and achieve incredible results. To fulfill these promises, they first help executive teams recognize the leadership qualities and skills that they cannot see themselves. Secondly, AddingZEROS guides desirable culture, engagement, and team alignment for a sustainable future. Lastly, they work with their clients to clearly define their organizational strategy (short term and long term) and help them prioritize actions to achieve their desired results.
Through understanding clients’ deep desires, AddingZEROS has realized that businesses want more predictability of their future financials, consistency in their internal processes while serving their customers, and better alignment within their executive team and entire organization.
More importantly, organizations expect to have an emotional connection with their customers as well as their employees. This is where AddingZEROS takes center stage by bringing clarity to how organizations lead and manage their business. They have identified five disciplines that help leaders to achieve success: Strategy, Business Development, People, Execution, and Mission.

The client engagement process at AddingZEROS begins with a two-day strategy session with the CEO and their executive team. The process facilitates discussions in every aspect of the business, educates on business leadership best practices, then determines how to implement the five disciplines into the organization’s daily life. After completing this two-day session, AddingZEROS conducts executive development coaching sessions twice a month to help them with implementation & execution, leadership and management development. These sessions are then followed by a meeting with the executive team every 90 days to review the previous 90 days and plan the next 90 days. It helps in defining clear priorities for an organization and each department. In a nutshell, AddingZEROS helps businesses in strategic thinking, execution planning, communication adapting, and enhancing executive engagement through its proven strategies in leadership and management development. “A successful business is one which is sustainable, predictable, stable, consistent, and has an emotional connection with the workforce and customers,” says Monte. AddingZEROS not only adds zeros to revenue and profits but all aspects of the business, including client acquisition, client retention, employee engagement, employee retention, and community involvement, and its name clearly defines its purpose.
AddingZEROS has enabled organizations of all sizes to create ‘profitable corporate citizenship.’ In one such case, AddingZEROS helped an organization with 200 million revenue create clarity for their future. The client’s executive team didn’t have clear future desires or priorities. They were working hard, but not sure about the direction they were headed. Through the two-day strategy session, AddingZEROS helped them define their values, purpose, roadmap as a company and fully engaged the executive team. As a result, the client has not only grown in their revenue and profits, but in their team engagement and morale.
With the power of strategic thinking, execution planning, and instilling leadership and management skills into organizations, AddingZEROS is continually expanding its footprint across the globe. Currently, they are supporting and helping CEOs and executive teams in over a dozen countries. “We focus on helping executives bring clarity to how they lead and manage their organization for successful outcomes and a sustainable future,” concludes Monte.
