We can help you with ideas on how to solve the problem and with any information you need to stay compliant with Fair Work and the like. Our clients tend to need us to simply be a sounding board and to help them brainstorm the best course of action.
If there employee based people issues are deeper or you are looking to develop a growth culture, that is where we do have some extra services that you might find helpful.
1:1 Leadership & Business Management Coaching
Change and growth is a process of constant learning, experimenting and adapting our behaviors. With a multitude of other priorities and a lack of experience we often overlook our own development or just learn haphazardly on the way. However we tend to improve more or quicker in a coaching relationship aimed at supporting our skill development and nurturing an awareness of our selves and our impacts on others by ensuring we take time to reflect on ourselves.
Many clients simply want an unbiased, professional sounding board for their ideas & problems. For example, we can help you to identify ways to enhance your own performance; improve staff performance; maximise customer and stakeholder interactions; optimise productivity. Some customers just want to ring when they have a business or people problem and talk it through with someone who understands and can help with solutions.
At the end of the day you do not have to do any of this alone. We are here to help!
