Helping business owners get unstuck so business gets easier, people are happier and profits go up.
Every business owner has a vision for their business. In the process of working to realise it we sometimes get off track and head to a place that is no longer fulfilling and may be unprofitable.
Doing what needs to be done to be successful in business requires courage. Courage to keep evolving, learning and growing. A business leader must continually leave behind the comfortable and familiar and step into the new and unfamiliar. To do this takes clarity of purpose.
Can you clearly and honestly say this is why I do what I do?
Would your business partner(s) say the same thing?
And what would your team say?
Clarifying the big questions
- What is your purpose?
- What effect do you want to create?
- What do you want to achieve?
…will do more for moving your business forward than almost anything else you can do, no matter what stage your business is at.
Lack of clarity of vision, purpose and values will always cause a business to hit blocks and frequently become focussed on things that keep it very busy, but not be in motion towards where it wants to be. Nothing destroys profit as fast as this.
What is your situation? Are you facing a significant strategic decision, focussed on problem staff, low morale, high staff turnover, not finding good staff, competition seeming to have the edge, marketing not working, correcting costly mistakes, are you forced to compete on price, sales conversion rates not being where they should be…
Then it is likely that starting from the beginning with clear vision and values will assist in making the daily actions more aligned. Achieving the results and effects you want gets easier, people are happier and profits go up.

How I can help?
A business ‘vision’ as well as being a statement of a desired effect you wish to create in the world, includes a compelling
- Purpose (reason for existing) that the whole team can identify with and that is more meaningful than market share or any other measure of size;
- Clarity about the values (what the business always has and always will stand for);
- A mission or statement of what we ‘do’ from the perspective of the customer;
- And measurable goals and objectives.
The power created in a business by doing this work ‘on the business’ drives strategy, frequently answers the ‘what’ and ‘how’ questions and energises the team to do what needs to be done.
Once a vision is created standards and systems required to achieve it can be created, implemented and improved. Work that is often supported by regular coaching sessions.
