Business Growth Leader
Setting up and running a business successfully is not just achieved by chance. It takes much thought, hard work and enthusiasm and even then the unknown and unexpected can conspire to trip you up. This where the skills of an independent Business Growth Leader can help to get you on the right lines - and exercise sustainability to keep you there!
There are times when being able to trust someone with your innermost thoughts and personal goals can be just what you need. Someone who has 'been around' in business for a while, who is independent and who understands what you're talking about. Someone who has a way of not just 'looking after' you but more 'looking with' you.

What doesn't always come so naturally is their ability to transfer those same skills into the strategic forum that is the SMT. The task of the Coach, working closely with the group, is to help them pull together and support each other, in driving the business forward.
