Richard Gourlay's Mentoring Programme
Success in anything in life comes from having a vision of where you are going and why, and the support you need to get you there.
To achieve that successful leaders must be focused and clear on where they are today, where you are going with your business and having a course of action to achieve that goal.
Knowing where you are going, having a goal, puts you in control of your destiny and ultimately ensures you are successful.
To make success happen, having your route map to make that change happen is the vital connection which makes the changes that need to happen to achieve the outcomes which delivers the success.
People can see that they are not where they want to be, but its those who can understand the need for change, the pace of change and can see the necessary outcomes which those changes make, are the ones that will ultimately succeed.
How to take control is one of the biggest issues leaders face. Where to start and even how to start making changes to your business, making it become more successful is never easy. Moreover, the order you do all those elements, makes a real bottom-line difference to your business success.
Richard Gourlay BackgroundOver the last 20 years I've worked with hundreds of business owners, from micro-businesses through to PLC's and I've identified that there are some key factors that very successful owners do which ensure their success. While other business owners struggle to keep their heads above water. What I've learnt is that these simple and logical steps that successful people undertake, which make that 'something different' in what they do, delivers real results in taking the guess work out of their business success.
I've spent years working with leaders of businesses across many sectors, including retail, manufacturing, SaaS businesses through to professional services, amongst many others, helping senior people develop their skills to lead their businesses more successfully.
Mentoring by Richard Gourlay
Knowing what you need to focus on makes a huge difference in where to invest your energy and resources. I'm a huge fan of the leadership culture of working ON it not IN it. If you are not working on your business then how is it going to improve, how is it going to be ready and able to face tomorrow's challenges? But you need to know what is important to work on within your business, and why!
Change is the only certainty in business. Today that has never been truer, the pace of change in every market has, and is, changing at an ever faster rate. The rise of the web, for example, has created rapid online trading and shopping which has rapidly accelerated change.
How should you respond to change, fast and effectively enough to take advantage of the opportunities they provide, but safely enough to not loose control of your business. We assess risk appetite and how to develop risk profiling to suit your personality and business sector.
Developing your skills using a mentor will stretch and develop your ability to work on your business and present back where your business is sign and why.
Every business owner wants to grow turnover, profitability or customer base, but how is the important question.
Doing what we've always done is the natural default behaviour that people fall back into despite best intentions. Change is always easy to talk about, but harder to actually deliver. Change is always necessary to achieve success. My bespoke mentoring programme enables leaders to create the right changes for their business at the right time. Supporting leaders to deliver the right results for success.
Taking the risk out of your business success is all about taking small, simple but highly effective steps which move your business where you want it to go. I have designed the mentoring programme to fit every type of business by size and sector and at every stage of its development.
