Is this you?

  • Do you need to refocus on where you’re taking your business?
  • Do you lack an objective collaborator in making significant decisions?
  • Is there never enough time for the strategy that makes the difference?

Running your own business can be a really lonely activity. Whether you work alone or have a small workforce you are often isolated. You have no colleagues or boss to share your challenges and no support for your difficult decisions. There are so many calls on your time and so many urgent issues to deal with, that it can be hard to maintain your vision for your business and find time for strategic planning. And it can have serious knock-on effects.

Statistics from the Department of Trade and Industry show that almost a third of small businesses fail to survive their first three years. Analysts assess the four key factors in increasing survival rates as:

  • Better planning
  • Better professional help
  • More advice from business support organisations
  • Guidance from banks

One-to-one coaching offers you time and space to stop for a moment, focusing on the direction for your business and doing some all-important planning. You can reconnect with the values and goals that are so important to you in your business. In your coach you have a supportive and objective sounding-board for talking through your important decisions. And most important — there is also time for you: to explore your work-life balance and what you want for yourself.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computers
