I am passionate about seeing small businesses succeed. Small businesses are the drivers of our economy and the glue that sticks our communities together.
Small business owners deserve the very best support as they navigate the challenges and juggle every role to create, grow and nurture their businesses, businesses which benefit the economy and the communities within which they’re set.
As your coach I facilitate a process in which you create a solid vision and define a crystal clear mission for your business. We then work together, using these inputs to create a thorough and achievable strategy which will see you and your business thrive.
Whether you’re an established business owner looking to grow and expand or a business-newbie starting out on your journey I would love to work with you. I am passionate about seeing small business owners not only unlock the potential of their businesses but also the potential of themselves and their lives. I thrive on supporting driven individuals and would love to be part of your journey.
I have been a small business owner for 10 years. Following a corporate career, where coaching was my core business, I became a mum and set up a small business to give me the flexibility and challenge that I needed. Over the last 10 years I have set up and run a number of business ventures (both coaching and non-coaching based) which have given me a great balance of income and parenting, challenge and success. Those businesses have also fed my love of helping people thrive as well as my insatiable appetite for diversity and variety!
How do I work?
» I always start with a discovery session. It’s critical that we take the time to speak and agree (at a high level) the outcomes we’re looking to achieve from the coaching programme. It’s also a great opportunity to get to know one another before we get going.
» During the discovery session we will design your tailored programme. Each business is unique and each coaching programmes must be equally as unique to be effective.
» Coaching programmes vary from one off Vision Setting sessions to 6 month programmes of support and strategy. I work both in person and remotely via the phone and Skype.
» I firmly believe the creation of a solid vision, clear mission and thorough strategy are the corner-stones of success for small businesses and this is where I start with all of my clients once we get going.
» As we progress through the programme I will use exercises and questions to support and focus you in achieving your goals.
» My coaching style is firm but fair, challenging but supportive.
» I work both face-to-face and over the phone. Programmes typically start with an intesive set of 4 sessions then continue with less frequent support sessions for as long as is needed.
What exactly is Small Business Coaching?
» Small business coaching is about giving hard working owners the opportunity to take a step back and focus on the long term strategic direction.
» It’s about taking time to work on your business not in it, identifying opportunities and developing strategies to meet challenges.
» It’s about focusing on business growth; considering new markets, prioritising key clients and profitable products.
» It’s a process which works by encouraging new ways of thinking. Powerful questioning techniques teach you more about your business and yourself by uncovering values, strengths and weaknesses.
» It is a process in which the present is evaluated, the future vision is designed and a strategy is created, a strategy which is ambitious yet achievable.
» It a process which creates businesses confidence through creating a vision, setting a mission and identifying priorities.
» It’s about working with an objective supporter whose only motivation is to see you succeed.
