Create a vision

First off, let’s be honest, many business owners immediately turn off when they hear the word “vision”.  Rest assured we get it, done badly, it can be a complete waste of time.  That being said, without a vision, your business stands a good chance of getting stuck in the doldrums.

Crafting a vision is part art, part science with the sum total being an exciting destination for your business that you and your team fully engage with.  However, you also want to make sure that you are making progress towards your goals and that you get there in one piece (i.e. no shipwreaks).  That’s where good governance comes in.  We’ve found that regular board meetings coupled with robust strategic planning help keep business owners on course.

Whilst it may not be the most exciting thing in your world, making sure you are running effective board meetings is critical to long-term success. We chair over 200 board meetings per year and have put together an agenda for running effective meetings.

Develop leaders, create the vision, build the team

Business owners are leaders whether they know it/like it or not.  The impact of good or bad leadership on a business’ culture and ability to acheive it’s goals (or vision) should not be underestimated.  We can help give you the tools to lead your business, create an engaging vision, and build an amazing team to help deliver it.

Manage the board meeting & ensure good governance

We make the board meeting happen (if it isn’t already), chair the meeting, take the minutes, facilitate the discussion, make sure actions are recorded and attendees are accountable

Coach the team and help with actions

We know you’ve got the day job to do which is why our team is on hand to help support your team.   This helps to add some additional horsepower to make sure actions are completed and jobs get done.

How we support business owners

You know your business better than we ever will.  Our strengths lie in our leadership and governance expertise.  We are also working with between 10-15 other businesses at any one time.  This means that you get the benefit of cross-fertilisation of ideas, benchmarking, access to contacts, and much more.  Often our clients end up working with each other as we help broker mutually advantageous relationships.

We offer fixed-fee, no termination period board support packages.  This will typically involve chairing the board meeting, picking up actions, and contribution to board-level/vision/strategic discussions inbetween meetings.  Depending upon the scope of our engagement,  we end up getting involved in all sorts of other opportunities and challenges that our clients face.  Whether it’s developing strategic plans, managing sales team, financial modelling, HR issues, speaking to the bank, or mentoring the up-and-comers, we’ve probably come across it before!
