… important and strategic stuff often ends up on the “too difficult to do” pile …
Running a business is a challenge. And there’s so much to do every day and week that the important and strategic stuff often ends up on the “too difficult to do” pile.
But these are the tasks that will move your business and life forward.
Consistency is probably the most important element in a business – doing the important things, focussing on the most important things that make the most difference. And yet our days can get swamped with emails, interruptions and trivia that all needs doing, but doesn’t move your business on.
Our financial results coaching will keep you and your business on track to achieve the financial strategy you created.
This bit is where we really hold your feet to the fire to help you get the financial results you want. We work constantly on your financial strategy – moving you and your business step by step to where you want to be.
Accountability has been proven time and time again to be the most critical element in any plan. Saying when you’re going to do something, and being accountable to someone. So this is a key part of our coaching with you – holding you to account so you achieve more than you could have imagined.
Practical, bottom-line results focussed coaching
Once we’ve nailed your financial strategy and you know exactly where you’re doing, we can be there to make sure it happens!
We’ll get right into your monthly numbers with you, making sure things are as they should be, spotting things going off track, looking ahead to make sure the rest of the year is on target. And through the process we’re continually building and growing your own financial skills – making sure over time that you understand every aspect of your finances, knowing what levers you have to increase profit and cash.
And we become the ferocious protector of your bottom line, making sure that we’re continually making progress towards your financial strategy, and holding you to account to get the life you want.
This is coaching you can actually measure a direct financial return from – we’re obsessed with increasing your bottom line, and we have the tools, knowledge and skills to help you do it.
A client I’ve been coaching for just over a year now has taken his business from break-even to making £250k net profit after tax and dividends this year. Because we don’t let up on the things we know will make the difference!
Financial Mindset Coaching
Most of us dream of financial freedom, but only the very few will ever get there
And sometimes it can seem baffling that if we’re working so hard and trying everything, then why aren’t things panning out the way we think they should? Then it’s easy to blame everyone and everything else rather than look at how our own behavior is affecting our results.
You see, I know how to get someone’s’ business in good financial shape, but telling people what they should do is never going to work unless:
But we’re driven by our financial blueprint and our mind set and we don’t consciously realise how much our mind set impacts on how we do things, how we run our businesses, and what decisions we take. With 95% of our behaviour coming from our unconscious mind, your mind set and deeply held beliefs have a tremendously powerful impact on your day to day behavior.
And this all affects how your business performs and your long term financial position.
And whatever you believe to be true, is in fact true for you, meaning that beliefs your developed many years ago can still be running the show and sabotaging your business success today. Your mind has extraordinary power and will always find the evidence to back up anything you believe to be true.
I work personally with business owners to get them “un-stuck” and taking action on the most important things, by getting over mental blocks, old beliefs and behaviours that just aren’t useful or working for your life. In 2017 / 2018 I qualified as an NLP coach and practitioner because for over 18 years in business I’d seen how much old beliefs could hold a business back and I wanted to learn the tools to help people get the life they really wanted to live.
Money, wealth and success are funny things. They can have some really negative meaning for a lot of people, driving them to consistently make “interesting” decisions!
Some examples of this include:
What I absolutely love about NLP is that is makes change very quickly. Your brain just needs clear instruction so we can overturn old programming in very little time. And that’s why I wanted to qualify in NLP because I’ve seen what fantastic results I’ve had in my own life using these skills – most notably fully recovering from ME 9 years ago after almost 2 years of not being able to leave the house.
Coaching for finance staff
Usually following on from the financial training where we put the right processes, reconciliations, controls and management information in place, we support your finance team to keep developing their financial skills and make sure everything they’ve learned gets embedded.
Having a weekly or fortnightly phone call booked means your staff always have someone to bounce things off, make sure they are on the right track, and they have someone to be accountable to – the most powerful aspect of making things happen.
We can also support your finance team, especially in the early months following their training, by being there during month end for queries, questions and to review the accounts before they’re used by the business to make decisions.
This builds strong controls and analytical skills as we train them to understand what the numbers mean, how to spot when something isn’t right, and how to analyse the accounts so they can give you better information
