I am a qualified business leadership coach. My clients are business owners and senior managers who run established companies. Typically, most of my clients are turning over £1m- £7m … but of course I have clients doing more … and less.
‘I learned the difference between busy and productive …’
While my clients usually have a solid business their biggest frustration is: people issues. They routinely complain they are kept busy mentally managing key staff, double checking the decisions and activities of others or reacting to problems others have created.
“I was too hands-on the day-to-day operation.’
Simply, this keeps them too hands-on. Even the best ones find themselves checking and even doing the work of their employees … often key employees. For some its become a habit.
“I gained immense clarity, a clear direction and high accountability.’
Through business leadership coaching they gain immense clarity around their business and their role. As a result they are quickly freed up to focus on strategic direction, building high performing teams and business performance. Coaching provides the structure and much-needed accountability to go to that next level, bigger and sooner.
‘Expect a dramatic uplift in results …’
My clients get a dramatic uplift in results – typically between 30 and 400%. The usual result is you end up working less hours, you’re less hands-on and ironically you get more done.
Plus you make more money and get to enjoy more of the actual intended benefits of business ownership. Importantly as the ability to manage improves, your knowledge and skills and ability to lead are enhanced.
‘Applied behavioural science. Substance at its best…’
I originally developed this approach for leaders operating within high-pressure, high-risk, high compliance health and safety environments. Those leaders were theory averse and wanted to develop the capacity to lead more effectively in a way that felt natural and intuitive. This proven approach is based on behavioural science and has transferred brilliantly to commercial environments.
You will quickly learn the only five things that highly effective leaders do; and quickly adapt them to your situation with great effect.
‘He holds your feet to the fire!’
I guess the best way to describe my coaching is driving accountability. You could say I hold your feet to the fire. I have been called blunt, direct, rude, cantankerous, old-school and even refreshingly un-PC. In any case, I work with a proven methodology that routinely gets you to walk your talk.
