It's ALL about getting clients results!

This vision is clear… UK abundance through business re-education. As businesses grow the journey changes… and the struggles change too… along with you needing to change and evolve.

Without a coach, you simply cannot achieve your very best… which may seem like a sweeping statement, but true. Eric Schmidt, CEO Google is a pretty good testimonial to that statement. All the best have a coach!

My short term mission is to inspire and empower over 10,000 Business Owners, and impact on 100,000 lives. I would like you to be one of them.

The journey will be both painful and fun… and will lead to everything you ever wanted.

Improvement in hours worked in the business since commencement of coaching

Each Director was previously working around 70-80 hours a week, mostly working ‘in’ the business, assisting with various day to day operations, with little time devoted to developing strategy and working ‘on’ the business. Now much less weekend working – and moving towards removing this completely! We’re now spending over 35% of our time working on the business, and on issues other than the day to day functions (which are now largely being handled by other team members).

 

Difference in stress levels

Much improved stress levels. No longer ‘fire fighting’, with a team now in place to spread the load and responsibility for day to day operations.

 

Sales

Currently experiencing record sales levels, through a number of initiatives and business relationships that the Directors have been able to develop with more time to dedicate to this side of the business. From an annual turnover of £1m, we have set a sales target of £1.5m for 2018.

After 4 months to end April we were 65% ahead of that target with new business of £823,000 secured in the first third of the year.

 

Recruitment & new team members

When we started working with Nick in July 2017 we had a headcount of 10 permanent staff including the 2 directors and we used a number of sub-contractors. We have now doubled the permanent staff to a team of 20, with site based staff of 14 (some sub-contractors have moved across to join us on a PAYE basis).

An office based team of 4 (previously just one member of staff), now support the Directors. Our successful recruitment has been assisted by an excellent Action Coach recruitment process which has helped us identify and select some excellent candidates to fill key roles.

Working with Nick, we have developed KPIs across the business and rolled these out to all staff at a Team Alignment Day in March. These will form part of a new staff appraisal process which we are developing with Nick’s assistance.

 

Systemisation and Efficiency

Our  coaching with Nick has helped us to analyse our workflows and processes that needed to be systemised. Procedures have been documented, allowing us to get new team members up and running efficiently and effectively in a much more ‘systemised’ business. 2018 has seen us invest in business management software which will help us further with systemisation of our work processes and help us better manage and monitor our business.

Nick has helped us identify what areas we need to improve on, both as individuals and as a business. The Directors are working better together, as a team. Our hard work is now better directed in a much more disciplined and ordered approach, delivered via a 90 day plan, developed each quarter, to help us focus on our immediate and long term objectives and stay on track.

We are now starting to see the benefits of our hard work in a number of areas: strong sales results, better working practices and more time to spend on taking a strategic view of the business.

 

In Summary ...

Thank you Nick. Within a year we have implemented significant changes and improvements and the business now feels well placed to grow profitably and sustainably. Onwards and upwards!
