Business Experts

First and foremost, we are a team of Business Experts. Our deep understanding of your world is built upon decades of personal experience.

Our team of business experts are also highly-trained business coaches.  As entrepreneurs, CEOs and senior executives, they have personal experience of growing, funding, buying and selling businesses successfully before re-training as a coach.  We not only know what stages you are going through, we have also been there ourselves. 

Trusted Advisors

Energising, Challenging, Honourable & Open: Our values are fundamental to the strong relationships we enjoy with our clients.

Every organisation, every customer and every project has a unique set of needs.  That’s why we tailor our approach to the specific needs of your business and your customers.

Life would be so much simpler if we could just roll out the same ‘off the peg’ solution time and time again but that’s not what we’re about.  All our services are bespoke, driven by a thorough grasp of your business, your objectives, your target audience and what will get the best results.

Taking the time to study your business and understand your requirements is key.  Understanding your customers is critical.  Once everyone’s expectations have been properly absorbed and documented, then we can work out how to help you exceed them.

Our aim is always to deliver flexible and sustainable ‘future proof’ solutions that deliver a long-term return on investment and real competitive advantage.

We nurture teams of business experts who are well trained, caring, passionate and proud of the job they do.  Our values ECHO a collective approach to our clients:

ENERGISING – We aim to consistently deliver value and exceptional service.  We are always proactive, responsive and relevant in our approach to colleagues and clients. Our mission is to raise the bar and shape a better future together.

CHALLENGING – We strive to enhance the personal effectiveness and quality of life of business leaders and their teams.  We challenge both clients and colleagues to be the best they can be.  We are both provocative and supportive in pursuit of these goals and we leverage our collective experience, insight and learning to deliver superior results.

HONOURABLE – We are authentic, transparent and fair.  Personal and professional integrity are of paramount importance to us.  We choose simplicity over complexity in all our dealings.

OPEN – We do business with passion and a positive attitude.  We value and support our colleagues and our clients.  We work hard to attract, develop and retain the best talent and we foster a collaborative, accessible and mutually supportive environment where enduring relationships matter.

Facilitators

More than just "making easy", we ensure your objectives are met effectively, with clear thinking, good participation and full buy-in from everyone involved.

Each business coach is also a skilled facilitator, experienced in the art of enabling leadership development and performance improvement through shared learning, shared ownership and the achievement of shared goals.  Group discussions can be complex, especially where people have differing views and interests, so good facilitation can make the difference between success and failure.  Our experts each have a wide range of facilitation skills and tools, from problem solving and decision making, to team management and communications.

Leadership Coaches

We help successful business leaders to be even more successful.

Harness the transformative power of coaching to improve your personal, team and organisational performance.  Our coaches will help you to identify and develop the abilities and behaviours that create a strong base for sustainable growth.  Going deep to unlock insight, we will challenge the established thinking in your leadership team to create shared understanding, stimulate change and shape a better future together.

Whilst elements of our approach may resemble traditional management consultancy, the similarity is only skin deep.  We believe that you and your colleagues are the true experts in the specifics of your business and that only you and your staff are best qualified to make the right decisions for it.  Our role is to act as a catalyst, to help you build the depth of commercial, business and management abilities required to create a foundation for long-term growth.

We 'ask' rather than 'tell', we 'coach' rather than 'consult', and we run our coaching agenda to align with your choices and your vision for the company.  We work alongside you to co-create a healthy, productive, enduring relationship based upon delivering quantifiable value.
