Many companies and their senior executives find that a professionally facilitated management team “away day” helps guide them through periods of change, growth or challenge when fresh thinking is needed. It can also help key people to regain focus, motivation and from a company’s perspective, get “all the cogs working together in synch”.
We bring additional business acumen based on approaching 40 years of experience, research and analysis of best and worst practice; we know what businesses do well – and what they don’t! We can help you to think more clearly about where you are going, what you want to achieve (and why) and how are you going to get there. We help to create the discipline of getting things done and bring an important degree of impartiality to the discussion; someone who will challenge your thinking and provide you with a sounding board for your ideas, all of which will help you to take your business to “the next level”.
It’s otherwise difficult to create the right environment for the open and robust discussions necessary. To also paraphrase Albert Einstein, “You can’t improve a situation with the same thinking that created it in the first place!” The value of coaching is well documented; a recent Grant Thornton survey of 3,500 business leaders in 45 countries found that, geographical and cultural differences aside, one in three leaders of the most dynamic fast-growing organisations tend to use a coach.
The outcomes? Clearer thinking, clearer plans and a clearer idea of how you are going to achieve them.
So, what’s on your mind? Our guess is that you will be looking for measurable improvement of some kind in business, team or individual performance; or there may be an issue to do with change or growth.
If you would like more information about this option, please contact us. A good place to start is also an informal meeting over a cup of coffee to discuss the situation and provide you with an opinion, advice and some ideas; there is no cost or obligation involved for this so with nothing to lose and potentially much to gain, we look forward to hearing from you!
