The Basics Programme

Business coaching for startups and early-stage businesses

What can a business coach do for you at this stage?

If you are looking for help with starting up a new business or already have one running that needs to improve the foundations, a business coach should be top of your list.

Getting a solid structure and baseline systems in place is often the difference between wasting years on trial and error approaches and making good progress early on.

Our business coaching for startups and early-stage business owners provides you with the skills, guidance and support you need to help you get it right the first time, more often.

With a mix of 1-2-1 and group coaching sessions, we address the gaps in the existing business and boost your own knowledge and capability to run a successful company.

What does this programme consist of?

North Star Session

This initial 3-hour session reviews your current business status, performance, aspirations, challenges, opportunities and examines your business against our bespoke SME 10-point Coaching Star. Following that assessment, you and the coach together set the priority objectives for the next 12 to 36 months.

Fortnightly or monthly 1-2-1 coaching sessions

Depending on the speed of change you want to see happen in your business and your budget for support, these regular 1-2-1 hour-long sessions can be held on a regular basis, either fortnightly or 4-weekly.

Within each session, your coach helps you review progress made against commitments and more extensive plans, discuss and confirm the next priorities, and then help you stay on track with an appropriate mix of education, accountability, and support.

Short Haul Business Flight Planning

These sessions are an opportunity to take a step back and look at the bigger picture against your 12-month priority objectives and allow for the key quarterly priorities to be established. Once decided upon, these prioritised goals are then defined, broken into relevant activity chunks, and timelined onto an easy to use planner.

Complimentary access to the Profit Hunter Workshops

As a 1:2:1 client, you also get complimentary access to our Profit Hunter Workshop
series. This group coaching programme provides education specific to business owners on 12 core topics throughout the year

Support as and when you need it

Support as and when you need it.

Available Monday to Friday during office hours, your coach is also there to provide ad hoc quick advice and support (within reason) whenever you need it.
