What Is Your Why?
Some Common Reasons For Coaching

 

We go to the dentist, doctor and potentially the optometrist & hearing specialist. We take our car to a mechanic. We seek a builder if we’re renovating. We ask an Insurance broker to consider our needs and find the relevant products. We refer to a lawyer for a raft of things. We have teachers to educate our children and grandchildren. We expect the sports teams that we admire to have someone responsible for getting the best from the players. We might even have a personal trainer at the gym.

Oh and we spend money on those things. Sometimes a lot of money.

Our businesses are no different. Some people might even argue that their business is more important than a few of the other things on the list above. In many cases, our business is our most valuable income producing asset or we hope that it has the potential to be, particularly if we’re spending so much time in and on it. Maybe we even wish to leave a legacy for future generations.

Stuck Or Overwhelmed?

 

Our coaches have the experience to understand what it takes to make a business grow and how difficult it can be. 

They’ll be able to guide you through the tough times, they know it's your own company, it's your house that's on the line, your family’s wellbeing and so on.

We have helped over a hundred business owners get moving in the right direction and are now prospering because of it.



Solving A Problem?

 

Our coaches can provide a completely new approach to challenges you are facing. 

This can provide you with a new outlook across aspects of your business and articulate solutions in a way you can understand and apply yourself.

 

 



Need A Sounding Board?

 

Our Business Coaches are passionate about helping business owners to succeed. They bring all their experience to bear on your business and help you make the right decisions.

The overwhelming response we’ve had from kiwi business owners is that they really value advice from an objective, experienced expert who understands what they’re going through.

Our coaches have 'been there, done that' and now can help you avoid the same pitfalls.

How We Work
A Process With Purpose

 

Develop your capabilities to drive the growth of your business by working with a specialist business coach who will apply their business and industry knowledge to your specific needs.

Your expert coach will not make business decisions for you – instead, they are your sounding-board, strategy guide and professional business coach. They will help steer you on the right path to achieving your goals, share best-practice and guide you on how to develop and implement growth plans.

Through regular, tailored catchups, you’ll quickly see a difference in the way you operate and start to move your business to where you want it to be.

Process

  1. Talk with one of our team about your business and goals.
  2. They will recommend one or more coaches that could help you based on location and topic expertise.
  3. You can review their bio's and credentials, then a preliminary meeting is setup between you and the coach.

  4. ​Once you are ready to get the process underway, we begin with a minimum 3-month engagement.
    This is broken up into regular session, so the coach has enough time to work alongside you and understand your business fully so that they can make an impact.

Outcomes

  • The coach will develop a view of the business with an impartial 'outside' view.
  • They will facilitate planning workshops with you.
  • They will identify business opportunities, processes to mitigate challenges and be your personal sounding board throughout the process. 
  • They will then look to create an action plan to achieve your business goals.
  • Then through continued regular sessions, keep you accountable to implementing the plan​.
