Business Coaching

Our purpose is to help our clients achieve their potential, as individuals to be the person they want to be and to create the businesses they dream to have and from this to create wealth for the local economy now and to leave a legacy for the future in the communities where we are located.

We have listed below some of the reasons we begin working with individuals and businesses to support this purpose.

  • You have too much to do and not enough time
  • You have a vision for the business but have an outdated strategy and plan
  • Your margins are under pressure
  • You are struggling with staff engagement
  • You have lots of ideas for the growth of the business but implementing these are a challenge
  • You are working very long hours which is having an impact on your personal life
  • You have a new product/service to launch but are struggling with sales
  • You are losing business to competitors
  • You need support with implementing change in the business
  • You need an external sounding board, some impartial from the business

What are the benefits?

Change Success

We often start working with people when they are looking to implement some level of change in their business life or in their personal life. Research tells us that the probability of change success in whatever project or initiative (business or personal) you undertake is as low as 30%. This means that to be successful most people need to try to achieve their designated goal several times before being successful.

This trial and error approach is very costly in both financial and human terms. The impact on our self-confidence and willingness to attempt change initiatives is significant. If we could be certain that our probability of success of any change initiative was at least 80% then we would attempt more and succeed more.

We use the Change Success model as a first step diagnostic to identify where you may have gaps in your plan. You can choose to take either our Personal Change Success Diagnostic or our Business Change Success Diagnostic. It should only take 5-10 minutes to complete and we will email the results to you.

“Susan is knowledgeable, engaging and, most importantly, genuine; caring just as much about her client’s business as they do themselves.

Susan has helped to coach and mentor me personally, as well as enhancing my leadership team through improving both our approach to problem solving and our use of tools.

I would highly recommend Susan to any business leader looking to find a real coach who brings honesty and sense-checking when it’s needed most.”

“We engaged Susan to support a coaching need within the business after she was recommended to us by someone in another part of our Group.

Susan has been coaching our Head of Finance for over 12 months now to build confidence and encourage a higher level of critical thinking. Over the last twelve months, our Head of Finance has grown significantly in terms of confidence and assertiveness and we have decided to continue with the coaching for an extended period of time.

Susan is down to earth, focussed and has a naturally supportive style which challenges without being intimidating – perfect for our needs.”
