Impact for Growth delivers fast focused change to allow individuals & businesses to flourish.
Successful business growth requires great people. Sometimes even great people need support. If you want your people to walk out of a coaching session as a better version of themselves than when they went in, you need an Impact Coach. Allied to their extensive business experience, our coaches can draw on Personal Coaching, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) & Hypnotherapy techniques to effect fast, significant change in individuals.
Business, Professional & Personal Evolution – Better Your Best
The Alternative Board helps business owners and CEO's to make better and well informed decisions.
We do this by facilitating board meetings were non competing businesses get together to share thier collective knowledge and experience with their peers. This is supported by business analysis tools to evaluate current performance against key objectives and relevant importance to allow Strategic planning to be applied aligning the business with the owners personal and company vision. This is all supported and and cemented by a monthly one to one coaching session.
