business coaching

This program will help business owners, start-ups and scale-ups as well as leaders of more well established businesses. It is essentially operational in focus and considers the broad areas of effectively planning and assigning work, how to measure what is put into and what is the result of that work, as well as such things as hiring/firing and building effective teams. 

The topics we will cover are aimed at supporting leaders in situations where there is a heavy focus on results (sometimes with high and fast growth expectations), where people may be stretched and where the organisational "rule book" is often a work in progress. We will look at balancing short and long term objectives and how leaders have to be broad generalists as well as functional and technical experts. 

The topics listed below are flexible and can be combined or tailored specifically to suit your needs. It is also possible to combine topics from the Management or Executive programs. 

The program will be 10 sessions in duration, with discussions focusing on pre-agreed topics but each session is not so rigid that we cannot change course mid flight to explore other areas that would be beneficial to you.
