“Seven in 10 scale-ups say that leadership development is “vital” …to the growth of their business.”
2017 ScaleUp Review
Because we run our own successful scale-ups, we know the challenges facing founders and investors. We understand the practical barriers in moving from start-up to scale-up and the frustrations of feeling stuck.
From personal relationships to strategy, cash, revenue, and change management, from compliance, process, talent, cultural issues and changes, to complexity in the market environment, scaling-up requires agility, clarity and decisiveness.
We can pave the way for rapid-growth and help you to reach your full potential fast.
Are you responsible for talent or sales? We know how to maximise your team’s performance and we love implementing sustainable coaching cultures. We can ensure that your coaching interventions, whether internal or external, deliver you the very highest ROI.
We can help you implement a coaching culture yourself or coach your senior leadership, C-Suite, Board or high potential individuals. We partner with you to leverage engagement, productivity and commercial results as well as to generate long-term impact.
Our business environment places great scrutiny on boards of directors.
Board members have to ensure that legal and regulatory responsibilities are met in the best interests of the company. Boards must be prepared for risk and reputational challenges, whilst continuing to seek and maximise opportunities.
We can provide specialist executive coaching to support, inspire and elevate your board directors’ performance either as individual directors or as a high functioning board team.
All organizations are perfectly designed to get the results they are now getting. If we want different results, we must change the way we do things.
