HOW THE CLOCKWORK CORE PROGRAM WORKS + what you get
Reverse Engineer Your Operation Vacation Date
We’ll support you on setting your official operation vacation date + developing a customized Clockwork roadmap. We’ll create specific quarterly, monthly, + weekly milestones to keep you on track + accountable to your Clockwork commitment.
9 CORE Classes to Deepen Your Clockwork Skillset
Equipping your team + your company to run like clockwork starts with YOU as a leader. There are 9 core modules with bite-sized trainings that you’ll go through with us to deepen your understanding of Clockwork and start applying it to your business. Each class has a Clock-work component that you’ll complete, and submit to keep you on track (yes, there’s homework). These classes will provide you with the Clockwork tools you’ll need to move your business forward, faster.
Daily Support + Guidance In Our Private Clockwork Community Group
The hardest part of implementing Clockwork is NOT going to be setting your vacation date…that’s the easy part in fact! Staying accountable to your milestones each week, that’s where the value of ongoing support comes in. We’ll have a community full of peers + the RLC team where you’ll be able to get round the clock support, feedback, guidance, and even butt-kicking when needed. Support, guidance and accountability is at your fingertips!
9 Coaching + Accountability Calls
Each week we'll meet to answer your clockwork questions for the week so that we can cut your learning curve in half. These calls will be the biggest difference between doing this on your own + working with us to give you the nuanced feedback + accountability you need to stick with this work, even when life gets in the way...and it will.
Access to Our Growing Library of Tools, Templates, + Trainings
Don’t be mistaken, this isn’t just a course with tons of modules, this is an immersive implementation program. But we will be adding examples, tools and trainings for you to use in your business to our library for you to access when you need it. You’ll be helping us populate it too, if you have a question that would be best served with an example, and we don’t have one yet, we’ll work to create it for you.

WHO IS Clockwork CORE FOR?
Clockwork Core is for small business owners + leadership teams looking to receive accountability, support and feedback around the Clockwork process. Anyone with an interest in raising the bar as a leader or business owner while effectively developing their team + removing themselves as the linchpin to the organization.
WHAT IS THE BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS + THE LIVE WORKSHOP?
There is no LIVE workshop included in this online program — all elements of this program will be delivered online, from the comfort of your own home or office!
And because there is no in-person element in this experience, this will likely be a larger group of students going through this program versus our LIVE workshops which are capped at 20 companies.
CAN I APPLY THIS INVESTMENT TOWARDS A LIVE WORKSHOP?
The material we teach in this online training is the same material you’ll get at the live workshop. We recommend you choose your preferred learning style versus going to both.
So, if you want to get started on Clockworking now, join the online program with us!

HI, WE'RE RLC...
And our mission is your vision, well, getting you to actually execute it, that is. We meet way too many small business owners with big visions, long to-do lists, really great ideas waiting in queue, and zero time left in their day.
If you're ready to create a streamlined + successful business operation...you're in the right place.
When you design your business + your team so it can run itself — instead of staying stuck in the weeds — you’ll have the time and freedom to develop a new product or service, write the book you've been putting off, give back to your community, or even start that next business venture you've been daydreaming of.
The Run Like Clockwork process starts with the principles of Clockwork: Design Your Business to Run Itself by Mike Michalowicz (best-selling author of Profit First, The Pumpkin Plan, and The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur).
In our Clockwork Core program, we'll help you reimagine your business design. You'll investigate your current reality, pinpoint what’s bottlenecking your growth, and create more efficiency and profitability.
The result: happier customers, happier team members, happier YOU.
RUN LIKE CLOCKWORK WAS FOUNDED BY Author + SPEAKER, MIKE MICHALOWICZ AND OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY EXPERT, ADRIENNE DORISON.
We've spent years figuring out how to best apply large-scale manufacturing efficiency principles to small business owners like you, the result was Clockwork.
