What To Expect From The Programme

During this three-month interactive online programme, (with a follow up 1:1 coaching session) business owners will benefit from facilitated sessions and self-moderated peer group discussions, with a highly skilled and experienced Icehouse facilitator, subject-matter experts.

Sessions are interactive and inclusive and will at times be deliberately provocative and challenging. Each element of the online programme has been designed to keep participants interested and engaged as they think about what they need to do to retool and refocus their business.

In the final session of Taking Your Business Forward you will develop and present a clear 90-day plan with goals based on where you see the business going and what is required to execute.

The follow-up 1:1 coaching session is a check-in session to help ensure you are on track to implement your 90-day plan and the goals you set during the online programme. This time with an Icehouse coach provides the opportunity to track your progress and identify and discuss any challenges you are experiencing or road-blocks to your success.

What participants will learn about:

  • Customers and Offering - understand your customers in terms of what they value and need and how you can align your product or service to this.
  • Leadership and Communication - consider your personal leadership and communication challenges for managing change and continuity and ways you can improve your effectiveness.
  • Building Resilience - explore the issue of building resilience, personal health and wellbeing and the importance of your resilience to the success of your business and your life.
  • Knowing Your Numbers - develop a better understanding of accounting and finance basics and key principles and apply these to your business.
  • Creating and Delivering Value - improve your understanding of how you create and deliver value in your business and also as part of a much wider network or ecosystem.
  • The Future of Work is Here - consider and explore methods, tools and technology for introducing more efficient practices and embracing digital in your business.

Taking Your Business Forward reminded me that you can’t wear too many hats. People will often know more about your business in certain areas, and that’s fine. Getting outside help has proved invaluable.
