121 Coaching & Mentoring

You want to focus on growing your business, you know you need to take a step back and spend time working ‘on’ it rather than ‘in’ it.

Sometimes that’s easier said than done. What if things aren’t going to plan and you see all your hard work begin to unravel? The thing is, even when you do find time to look at the bigger picture, it’s hard to be sure you’re putting your effort into the right areas. What should you be concentrating on first? Your strategy, leadership style or organisational culture? Or the link between them all?

And how about your relationships with your team? Gallup found that employees whose managers create an environment that opens the door for frequent two-way conversations are three times more likely to be engaged. And it’s engaged employees who work with passion, drive innovation, and move the business forward.
How certain are you that your 121 conversations are creating that kind of engagement?

Sounding board, devil’s advocate or critical friend…

…if the cap fits, we’ll happily wear it if we can provide you with a way to see through the problems you face in your business. Whether you have a specific mountain to climb, numerous hurdles to leap or simply an ongoing professional challenge you want to overcome.

We run coaching and mentoring programmes for MDs and CEOs just like you, who want to test out new ideas and get insight into how they come across. We’ll help you get clarity on what you need to do to make things happen. And we’ll challenge your thinking, sharing tips and techniques that will give you a renewed confidence in your ability to manage and lead at the highest level.

What’s more, we’ll give you the accountability to make sure you achieve everything you set out to do.

Coaching programmes for members of your team

Coaching shouldn’t just be about changing behaviours – it must also be about achieving results. Your high performers will thrive when the bar is high, talented employees do their best work when they’re challenged. Coaching creates an environment where the bar is set higher, not lower.

Maybe you have a leader who tends to micromanage and avoids difficult conversations. But you need them to achieve outcomes with newly remote teams whilst also identifying new business opportunities amid a downturn. It’s clear they may not succeed with their current approach.

We run coaching programmes for leaders who need to shift up a gear to achieve better results.

Do you feel way busier and more under pressure than you ever have been?

As part of the work I do, I get a lot of opportunities to check in with business leaders. This allows me to take a ‘pulse’ on the issues of the day that are impacting them. Often becoming aware of patterns in the types of challenges we’re all facing.

The quality and impartial nature of this advice, guidance, and sometimes mediation is the real key to obtaining and sustaining success. And also after many years a trusted friend!” Paul Dunne, Managing Director HAG
