We are different from other organisations in that we believe that
you know more about your business - its vision and goals - than anyone else. Why? Because you are living them.
This is an important point because your objectives today may change tomorrow, and if a consultant
redesigns your systems to achieve today's objectives then tomorrow you may find that they incapable of meeting your
objectives of the future and you will have to start all over again.
Not a smart way
to spend shareholder's investment, is it?
We are different because we, like you,
are unsure about what the future may bring. So we work together to prepare your organisation and its people to not only meet
the needs of the future but to influence and shape the future so that it meets the needs of your organisation and its shareholders.
To do this we adopt the role of a coach - someone who works with what your organisation has and helps
it become the best that it can be, whatever that is.
is a business coach?
Business coaches are like sports coaches in that they
both have only one thing on mind - the ongoing success of the teams with which they work. And just like a sport coach it is
only when the team are winning their games that he/she knows that his/her efforts are directly in line with the needs of the
team. As they achieve their objectives so too does the coach.
The purpose of a coach
is to work with a team as it puts into place the strategic and business objectives it must achieve if their organisation
is to achieve its desired aims. The coach doesn't do the work but instead makes adjustments to the style and direction
the team are heading, the way they work individually or together, or just to the way they think about things. The coach is
the the most important team player who never takes to the field.
isn't just sports teams that use coaches: Singers, actors, professional bodybuilders, all employ a coach to help them become
the best that they can be. Why? Because they know that to achieve the heights that they want to achieve they cannot do it
Successful companies - in both the private and public sector - are bringing
into their team a trusted third-party who can act as a guide, mentor, collaborator, or simply someone who can listen while
the person being coached kicks ideas around and formulates a plan to take them from where they are to where they want to be. The
job of the coach is to critically analyse where the team is now, where it wants to be, and works with the team to put in place
the strategies and plans to bridge the gap between the two.
And who best to bring
onto the team than a coach who has not only been around that track a few times before, but also actually helped to build the
track. Because our team has for so long been at the cutting edge of modern human and team performance systems and techniques
we know not only where and how long the track is, but also the potholes and hidden obstacles which ordinary coaches
may not see until it is too late.
