The group coaching program meets on a fortnightly basis for 2 hours and educates members on the key building blocks of the ActionCOACH 6 Step Framework. This is the proven framework that has helped thousands of SMEs around the world. Subjects covered:

  • Mastery – focuses on the 4 fundamental building blocks of Destination (aka.Business Planning), Delivery (aka.Operations & Customer Service), Time (time management) and Finance (financial control)
  • Niche – facilitates the creation of your bespoke Marketing Action Plan using our 5 Ways Sales & Marketing system
  • Leverage – focuses your attention on the 4 Ways to Systemise your business
  • Team – helps you understand how to attract, focus and retain the most talented employees through running the 6 keys to a winning team system

The focus for the program is tilted towards education and is based on the belief that in order for your business to grow, you have to grow first. So, education is critical. The sessions will be facilitated by your ActionCOACH and there will be plenty of time to ask questions, hear from others and share your own perspective. It’s a learning environment after all and the best way we learn is to encourage participation and fun! You’ll be provided with plenty of tools, templates and online resources and the focus between sessions is for you to implement what you learn. Learning is one thing, Doing is another. And because there’s 2 weeks between sessions there’ll be plenty of time for you to make tangible progress on what you learn.

Management & Leadership Training

Whilst the phrase “your people are your greatest asset” is commonly used, the way you get those assets to perform at their very best is less commonly known!

In SME businesses here in Edinburgh, the title of ‘entrepreneur’ is over-used….because it sounds sexy. It’s cool! We hear people talking about leading their teams and quoting leadership books. Interestingly very little is spoken of management.

And yet the conditions for allowing people to be at their very best requires good management ability AND good leadership ability.

In this program we’ll look to reveal the answers to these questions:

  • What are the outputs we’re looking to create through Leadership & Management?
  • What are the 4 things great Managers do? And how do they do them?
  • What are the 4 things great Leaders do? And how to they do them?
  • What is the trap many owners fall into with their teams?
  • What is the cornerstone philosophy that you need to instil in your team?

This program is for you if:

  • you are a business owner with a leadership team and a hunger to grow people
  • your business is showing good growth and new people are joining regularly
  • you recognise that you have an opportunity to unlock even greater performance through your team by working out how to lead and manager them more effectively

Business success is not a solitary pursuit. Success happens with and through people. Your ability to lead and manage your greatest asset – your people – is the key to your success and over this program you’ll learn exactly what you need to do.

And here’s our guarantee:

It might just be the best investment of your year! And if for any reason whatsoever you feel you haven’t got value from the program then just let us know and we’ll refund your investment. 

This program is delivered in one of two ways:

1. As a public program. Open to all SMEs, this format benefits from owners, managers and leaders from a variety of businesses coming together. We see people enjoying and learning from the diversity of perspective that comes from bringing together people of all styles from all types of business.

Investment: £1750+VAT per person

2. As a bespoke program. Whilst the material covered is largely the same as the public program, the benefit of this format is that it gathers the key leaders and managers within one single business so you can share the learning experience together and create a common language that you can take back into the every-day-life.

Investment: Dependent upon numbers

How is the program delivered?

  • 4 half-day sessions over 2 months
  • Tools and templates included
  • Support outside of sessions throughout program
  • Delivered by two coaches: Alan Smith & Yvonne Webb
  • Courses can be delivered via Zoom or in person at training venues in Edinburgh.

Are training sessions via Zoom effective?

Surprisingly so! Prior to Lockdown, Zoom courses were not something we offered however experience has now shown us that clients see some major benefits in an online course over a live in-person course namely:

  • more focus from delegates
  • improved note-taking
  • more diary flexibility
  • less travel time

Our view is quite simple. Coaching works whether it’s face-to-face or done online. Yes there are differences but ultimately – as in life – you get out what you put in. If you go into anything with the right attitude and create the right environment for yourself then you tend to achieve better outcomes. What you focus on expands!

 

Strategy Session

We’ve realised as we ask business owners “where do you want your business to be in 3-5 years?” that very few people have a clear idea, let alone an actual written plan. Most people think of a business plan as a hefty document that’s hard to create and even harder to implement, but it doesn’t have to be. An Strategy Day (also known as an Alignment Planning Day) is a fantastic way to take one day out of your business to work on creating a clear plan for 3-5 years forward. Everyone leaves saying that it’s the best day they ever had. They have clarity on what they are going to do… and they can’t wait to get started!

For larger businesses with 5-100 team members you’ll want our full attention to guide and facilitate your day. You might be the Business Owner working on this in isolation, but more likely you’ll want one or more senior team members to work with you – the choice is yours. We’ll help you review and refresh your vision of where you’ll be in 3-5 years. We’ll look at your key challenges and opportunities and create a schedule containing the significant goals that will achieve it. We guarantee you’ll leave the day feeling motivated and inspired to implement the clear plan you’ve created!

Coaching Session (one off)

A single coaching session isn’t a magic pill. It won’t solve your issues overnight and it won’t make you a millionaire next week. It might however start you off on a different path, give you a different perspective and/or give you an increased level of awareness of your situation and of your future.

These coaching sessions can’t be bought multiple times. A session is only available as a one-off.

Sessions are held either remotely via Zoom or face-to-face in the coaching office. Sessions are 90 mins.

In order to make the session as productive as possible you’ll be expected to:

  • have prepared for your session (taking with you any relevant material/info to support our session)
  • be able to articulate the outcome you’d like from your session
  • be honest
  • be open to challenge
  • to take action off the back of what we discuss
