Our Business Mentoring program is built on decades of business, leadership and management experience, and the lived reality of running owner-led businesses. We understand the push and pull between striving for business success and protecting your personal work/life balance, because we’ve been there.
Expect to gain clarity, confidence, and to grow your knowledge base. Anticipate a relationship of collaboration and openness, and enjoy the benefits of a practical skillset, proven processes and on-the-ground support.
And experience the value of a trusted partner & mentor who will support you on your journey, and respectfully challenge your thinking, develop your leadership & business skills, bring a network of resources, and do the work with you.
How it works
Discovery: our first step is to meet with you and your team to understand your business; where its strengths are, your vision for success, and biggest performance and opportunity gaps.
Strategy: we lead you through a strategic vision process. At its heart, this is a conversation ( or series of conversations) of where you’re at, where you want to be in the future, and what it will take to get you there.
Implementation: we work together to put everything we’ve learned thus far into action. This involves things like upgrading skills in the business, learning and implementing new business tools, developing more efficient ways of doing things and expanding your team’s mindset to overcome challenges and seize new opportunities.
Ongoing support: Across the program, we prioritise making time for you to work on your business. We do this through regular scheduled meetings which can be set weekly, fortnightly or monthly depending on what is needed.
How long does the Business Mentoring program go for?
Our approach is: You decide. Some of our clients have worked with us for 5+ years; others just for 6 months. This depends on you and where your business is at. What we do ask is to work together for at least 2 months so we can get to understand you and your business.
What if I have immediate challenges I need support on?
We listen and seek to understand what these are in our first meeting. If we can help, we will. We know how tough business can be. Where we can’t, because this is not our area of expertise, we will let you know and guide you in the right direction to seek that advice.
Where and how often will we meet?
We come to you. Our approach is to be there with you in your business. Get to know the feel of the business, its people and you as an owner. We offer a flexible program to meet weekly, fortnightly or monthly. What works is consistency. Each time we meet, it will be a dedicated and focused time to be working on the business. We set aside 2 hours for each mentoring session. We may need less, but not more. Our clients have found that this regular habit of working on their business with us is what creates lasting value for them.
Can you help me get things done, not just tell me what to do?
Yes! What is different about our approach is that we balance learning conversations with tangible business action. Outside areas of professional expertise (legal & accounting), clients have asked us to help them, develop budgets & improve cashflow, coach & train staff, bring in marketing and HR expertise, bring in new partners and team members, improve supplier relationships and develop new products and services. Our approach is to work hands on with you, frame the decisions you need to make (these are always yours); and then do our part to make the decision come to life.
What investment do I need to make?
The first investment is to commit to learning and work with us. We can’t do this alone without you. We need you fully committed. We’re all “with you” not “to you”.
Money-wise, we scale the investment to where you are in the business cycle and the level of support you are looking for. We agree on the amount of support and give you a fixed fee per month. This doesn’t change if we spend more time. That is our investment in our relationship. If things change, and you need significantly more from us, we’ll chat and work out how that will work.
