THE FOUNDATIONS AND DYNAMICS OF YOUR BUSINESS


With coaching & mentoring you will you build solid foundations to your business, then you are building for the long haul. To do so you will need the blueprint of procedures, workflows, budgets, achievable goals, business plans and thoughtful management. It is always good practice to review these regularly to keep up the momentum of business growth. An independent consultation and review provides an objective assessment of your business.


The implementation of the review with your mentor coach during the business consultation will vary for different business sectors and industries, however to give you an overview of the areas that we will focus on and put an action plan in place for are: 


  • Review of the structure of your business, sole trader , partnership or limited company
  • Review of your procedures
  • Suggestions on how to implement new procedures and work flow systems to increase efficiency and increase staff moral
  • Managing budgets, considering your price point
  • Premises -benefits of renting or buying
  • Disaster recovery plans
  • Looking at the power of delegation
  • The use of networking
  • Core values of your business


ONGOING SUPPORT 


As all things in life you may hit bumps in the road as things change, we will work with you to review your business, highlight the strengths and weaknesses and put in place an action plan to address any issues and develop strategies for improvement. This allows you to gain external, objective advice and recommendations for your business or help during a one-time project. There will be small changes you can make now that overtime can create exponential business growth with the help of your mentor on line. 


By taking informed steps with us you create the core business foundations before you approach a solicitor, I T consultant, marketer, accountant or financial advisor or sign an expensive lease for premises.

Together we will examine your business or project as a whole as opposed to only considering its component parts such as marketing, pricing and I.T. This enables you to make informed trade off decisions. It is best to do before you implement changes to avoid disjointed implementation that can be costly and ineffective.
