Business coaching is about taking your business from where it is now to where you want it to be.
We work with CEOs, management teams and business owners within businesses of all shapes and sizes, across multiple sectors both within the UK and internationally. We bring over 25 years experience in growing businesses and the knowledge and skills of some very talented people with specialisms across a range of commercial disciplines.
This experience along with the use of tried and tested methodologies and systems including our Smart Business Transformation Model has proven invaluable to a host of clients. Our core approach is simple:
Mindset +Strategy + Action = Successful Outcomes
As your business coach, we will aim to guide you as a business owner in growing your business the right way by helping to clarify the vision and purpose of your business. We will align this vision to your personal goals which will underpin your business goals. We believe that linking the business vision in with the business owner’s personal goals is a crucial step in developing your business with clear purpose and core brand values that are authentic and consistent to both your staff and customers.
You as the business owner will be steering your ship towards achieving that vision, so it is important to understand why reaching business growth goals is important to you personally and the impact it will have on your life. After all, it is you that will ultimately determine the pace at which the goals will be met. If the vision is not linked to your personal goals and aspirations then there is no urgency in achieving them!
After clarifying where a business owner would like to take their business, we prioritise what goals and strategies are needed to help progress the business towards achieving those goals.
We help you to think more strategically about your leadership, communication and how your business does things - processes, people and technology as well as understanding customers and your competitive landscape.
We look at short term quick fixes and 'low hanging fruit' that can be built into 90-day goals and longer-term goals, 6, 9, 12 months and beyond.
We meet with our clients regularly, either weekly or monthly depending on the development stage, to review plans and outcomes to them on track against goal commitments made during the past coaching session. A critical component of business coaching is accountability.
We ensure that we are always there to keep you focused on the end result and remind you why it is important and act as a sounding board when needed. In essence, this process serves to hold a mirror in front of you, highlighting your business and personal blind spots so that you can achieve your potential as a business leader and as a more successful business.
"In a recent study, training alone improved leadership skills by 22%. When combined with Executive Coaching, improvement jumps to 77%."
"I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities."
Bob Nardelli, former CEO, Home Depot
