One on One business coaching with Ray.

One on one business coaching is quite simply – whatever it takes to get your business growing in a profitable and productive way. It is about breaking open the barriers that are holding your business back. One on one coaching involves a weekly meeting, usually in Ray’s office, at the same time each week and a considerable amount work that will need to be completed in between.

These meetings will be about helping you achieving the right mindset, setting clear goals, understanding what your business will look like in a years time and a plan of how to get there. They will also be about getting control of your finances, leading your team to be more productive and in tune with your goals. Setting up marketing programs to drive consistent and profitable sales.

None of this is achieved with out a great deal of hard work and commitment. With Ray’s help business is fun, because your business will start working for you!  As part of one on one coaching you get unlimited phone access to Ray.

Blocks of business coaching, designed for smaller business.

In the early days of a business, business owners are often hands on and don’t have the time or money to commit to the weekly sessions. Ray offer you a block of five coaching sessions that can be used over a six month period. Ray will also be in touch with you, on a weekly basis, via phone.

The idea behind these sessions is to help the hands on business owner to grow their business to the point where they have the time to work “on” their business rather than “in” it. To truly be the owner of your business rather than an employee.

Team training.

Every successful sporting team has a coach. To be successful in business you and your team need a coach. Most of the time you, as the the business owner, will coach your team. From time to time a fresh voice carrying the same message can be very productive. Ray’s ability to connect with people makes him the ideal person to be that fresh voice.  You may also find that your team will open up to an outsider and you may learn where some of the barriers to growth in your business really are.

During this half day session Ray will make sure everyone understands your business goals, and their part in achieving them. He will make sure they understand the culture that you want in your business, that they understand the “Rules of the game”

Business owners – alignment and goals.

This half day session, away from your business and the phones, is an intensive session to really get you to focus on what makes your business different and where it is going. It’s about aligning your own personal goals and your business goals, brainstorming what lies ahead for your business, a plan to accomplish it and the steps that you need to take.
