Our Mission is inspiring leaders to seize opportunities and unlock ‘hidden’ organisational potential that achieves success.

John will help inspire the design and implementation of focused business consulting or coaching solutions based on a process called Plain Blue Sailing:

  • Plain talking – understanding your challenges and producing winning solutions through frank and open dialogue
  • Blue sky thinking – focusing on your business growth, not just on day-to-day operational nitty-gritties
  • Sailing as one team – developing operational plans that stimulate teamwork and effective implementation.  Encouraging team members to do the right thing at the right time

Solutions are focused on helping you to:

  • Enhance your business development
  • Enhance your organisational confidence
  • Enhance your sustainability
  • Enhance your operational planning and implementation
  • Enhance the well-being of you and your organisation

Each client relationship benefits from applied use of our Values:

  • Openness: we will be questioning and listening
  • Trust: we will do what we say we will do
  • Caring: we will develop solutions sensitively
  • Making a Difference: we will add value via our solutions
  • Vitality: we will help stimulate and energise change within your team

Business success is driven by people. So, if you want a business development partner that puts people at the heart of everything it does, then get in touch with us.

Coaching relationships

Do you want to set better goals, achieve goals faster, make better planning and implementation decisions or improve relationships across key stakeholders?

You may have been brave enough, passionate enough and successful enough to get to where you are today. However, is this enough to get you and your business to ‘where you want to be’ over the next few years?

Business Coaching is about the future and can act as a catalyst to unlocking your full potential. Many owners, leaders and senior executives invest diligently in their fixed assets but neglect investing in the most critical and important assets of all – themselves and their team.

Reflect on these questions:

  • Are your settling on being good when you could be great?
  • Are you trading on old knowledge and skills when the world is changing faster?
  • Are you married to your business or controlling your own time?
  • Do you get enough return out of your business given your inputs?
  • Would you benefit from accessing a sounding board and confidant?

Take a moment to reflect on these quotes:

“I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities.”
― Bob Nardelli, former CEO, Home Depot

“I’ll bet most of the companies that are in life-or-death battles got into that kind of trouble because they didn’t pay enough attention to developing their leaders.”
― Wayne Calloway, former Chairman, Pepsico, Inc.

“In a recent study, training alone improved leadership skills by 22%. When combined with Executive Coaching, improvement jumps to 77%.”
― Fortune

“… many companies … offer coaching as a prerequisite to proven managers, in the understanding that everyone can benefit from a detached observer.”
― Harvard Business Review

Do you want to make the best of your capabilities in business and in life? Of course you do, so, why not commit to the coaching process, invest in yourself and invest in your business.
