Business Growth Coaching & Mentoring

Many business owners need support when seeking to grow their business further. They often find themselves trapped in day to day operations and frustrated that they don’t have either the time, knowledge or resources to make the necessary steps to improve their business.

A dedicated business consultant and executive coach can be a major success factor in driving your business to a higher level. This support will provide you the mentorship you need in accessing the critical tools, techniques and processes to make SMEs survive and thrive together with objective advice, feedback and guidance on decisions and plans; at the same time coaching the owner and their team to develop the skills, self belief and personal accountability that is necessary for the business to succeed

To be effective this support may require from 6 months to 1 year involving:

  • Initial assessment of Business Needs & Personal Development Needs (2 to 3 hrs)
  • Development of measurable objectives/outcomes for the business coaching programme
  • 360o Feedback  through facilitated meeting with key staff members
  • Monthly face to face meetings to work on prioritising, problem solving, planning and progressing (1.5 to 2hrs)
  • Email and telephone support between meetings
  • Quarterly review on progress against objectives / revisit strategy & plans
