As a business owner, you know that challenges in business are frequent, and things don’t always go to plan. Perhaps:
Alternatively, everything may be going so well that you want to grow or duplicate your business, but you’re not sure how to take the next step.
Or you may have built your business to a point where you’re ready to pass it on to a General Manager; the next generation; or a new owner.
Whatever your motivation, business coaching will help you with strategy, ideas, resources, advice, guidance, support, and direction.
We can’t speak for other business coaches, but we can tell you what it’s like to work with us.
We start by looking at where you are now, and where you want to be. We’ll help you assess your values and create goals for your business and personal life.
The business coaching program we design for you is based around your goals; your unique circumstances and resources; and your preferred pace of getting things done (we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all model of business improvement).
If we identify limiting thought patterns that have held you back in the past, we’ll help you move past them and find new ways to approach old problems.
To improve efficiency and profit, together we’ll review and improve systems for your marketing, sales, production, and finances.
You’ll need your team supporting you and working towards your goals. We can develop your team through:
Although you may come to business coaching wanting to work primarily on one aspect of your business, we will look at it holistically. Your business is an ecosystem where each part affects the other. Our approach ensures that the improvements you make are sustainable.
Our business coaching is provided by a team of two coaches with different approaches.
While both are trained and experienced in all aspects of business, Andrew is a talented speaker with a strong financial and management background; Julianne a skilled writer versed in marketing, communication, and client relationship management.
In the majority of your sessions we will work as a team to ensure all aspects are covered.
Through our online portal, we will provide you with templates, guides and resources for each stage of your business growth. We will also point you towards other valuable resources (such as this goal setting method by Brian Tracy).
If you need a specialist to do the work for you, we’ll introduce you to local people we trust.
All we ask is that you are committed, not just interested, in getting new results for your business.
At a minimum, we’ll meet each fortnight at our office in Morpeth (or by Zoom or phone). We will add sessions as needed to help you and your team. We will also be available by phone and email in between sessions for support, guidance, and to manage any unexpected challenges or opportunities you face.
Your investment will be a monthly retainer, to assist with your budgeting and cashflow. We will ensure a quick return on investment so that coaching pays for itself.
As you achieve your goals, together we’ll strategise for the next stage of your business development.
Many of our clients work with us for four to five years; some for over ten years. Some partner with us until specific goals are achieved; and others reset their goals with us regularly as they and their business grow.
While there is no minimum timeframe for coaching, we suggest you plan for at least 12 months so you can maximise your results.
Our job is not to do the work for you, but to coach you to expand your own skills, knowledge, and ability; so you can master and grow your business.
Is business coaching something you’d like to know more about? If you’re ready to find out how your business can support you, we’d love to speak with you.
