Small business coaching:
1-2-1 coaching programmes

Coaching for small business owners that makes a real difference

SME business coaching can make the difference between having a company that experiences long term performance plateaus accompanied by high-stress levels and unreasonable time demands and having a growing, enjoyable, and successful business.

Small business coaching is NOT about a cosy fireside chat or even the same as having a consultant just tell you what to do. 

It IS about equipping and educating you as a business owner to make better decisions for you and your business and making sure you apply the actions to make change happen.

If you are looking for an:…

  • independent set of eyes on your business and your own performance
  • external small business mentor to hold you accountable
  • independent viewpoint for testing ideas and an informed sounding board

…a business coach is right for you!

What our great SME business coaches will do for you...

Upskill and develop you as a business owner

Our coaches will be a sounding board for you. Asking the tough questions, and minimising your need to learn through trial and error rather than using others’ experience and undertaking proper consideration.

Hold you to account for the actions you say you are going to take

Our coaches will hold you accountable for the actions you say you will undertake…being the demanding and caring friend who insists on you progressing at the best rate possible!

Be bespoke to your priorities and needs

1-2-1 coaching is designed to be bespoke to individual priorities, needs, aspirations, and challenges and is very different from consultancy. You are responsible for the actions and results, our coaches provide you with the tools and knowledge to undertake this with confidence.

The Missing Business Instructions - how to safely navigate the hazards of growing your business

With estimates of SME business failure at up to 50% failing in their first five years, and 70% within ten years, we are passionate about changing these statistics across the UK.

These figures also do not tell you about the pain and suffering business failure causes. 

We wrote The Missing Business Instructions to help upskill and educate business owners on the business of running, managing and growing their own businesses as we wanted to offer some advice and support for company owners who need it.
