Business Coaching

What is Business Coaching?

Business Coaching takes a business from where it is now to where the business owner(s) wants it to be. 

These diagrammes summarise this approach.

My own approach to Business Coaching is to:

  • co-create a bespoke programme that accelerates the success of the business engaging in the process. 

  • improve individual performance. 

  • identify and develops high potential employees. 

  • identify organisational and individual strengths and development opportunities. 

  • motivate and empower individuals to excel.

  • help you see your blind spots.

  • serve as the business’s compass.

  • close knowledge gaps.

  • unlock self and team imposed limits.

  • offer unbiased third-party insight.

  • hold the owner(s) and team accountable.

  • teach new habits and ideas.

  • help the business navigate challenges and meet goals.

  • pave the way for success.

  • keep the business on the right track.

"I was running a high growth organisation that was heaving on its keel. I needed help to restructure the business when I met Alan. We worked closely together and he helped transform the organisation into a more relaxed, happy place, in which I'm doing far less with no loss of growth or standards. He's very perceptive, with excellent timing during the tussle of boardroom discussions. Alan is a great business coach."

Client Story

Sailing into the Sunset

A successful business couple had built up and run a profitable and healthy engineering services company. After 25 years they wanted to sell but didn't know how to ensure they would get enough income to live off for the rest of their lives, if they chose. After in-depth conversations with them, and a full appraisal of their business using RealityCheck®, established that there would indeed be a shortfall. I worked with them for two years, adding value across the board, including finding a hidden asset in the business in the shape of software they'd created which was valued at over £1m alone. Having introduced the couple to various corporate finance houses, they sold their business for an eight figure sum, leaving a strong business with a motivated senior management team deftly holding the reins.
