Coaching for business owners

Coaching“I have experienced Rasheed working with groups of business people on a number of occasions. He has the ability to motivate, inspire and most of all get people to look inside themselves to find their own drivers and motivators. He is a great coach to work with.”

Andy Berrow, Operations Director, Business Link in London

I work with business owners, consultants and experts and want grow a business that sits in balance with life and values. It’s true that we tend to spend most of our time working ‘in’ our business and not enough ‘on’ our business. Coaching helps you redress that – giving you the time and space and support to move yourself and the business forward. Clients who come to me typically are looking for clarity, focus, motivation and to be more effective and efficient in the business and balance in other areas of life.  I also have a background in communications, media and PR which means I have an insight to help you boost your brand, impact and visibility.  

I am not a typical business coach: I start with you and then your business. Once you’re clear, inspired, motivated, confident, organised, productive, professional, in balance and gather the right team, then your business will flourish. If you are not you and your business will stifle and suffer: So I help you holistically in the three key areas:

  1. You: become focused, motivated, productive and happy in your life and business
  2. Your business: develop the vision, goals, tools, team and action to grow – step by step
  3. Your customers / market: understand your customer needs and market issues – and act smartly.

Our business coaching sessions will help you:

  1. Identify your life and business goals / priorities
  2. Develop a simple strategy and a plan of action
  3. Look at your business from customers’ and others’ perspectives
  4. Understand and build on your brand
  5. Identify strategies and ways of generating more business
  6. Find balance in your life and business
  7. Boost confidence, creative thinking and communications skills
  8. Boost skills with people, influencing, selling, interviews, pitches, cold calling & networking
  9. Manage your time and energy – and stay focused, motivated and on track
  10. Give you the support, space and ‘push’ that you need.

The benefits: clear goals, motivated people, life balance, improved creativity, greater self confidence, enhanced profitability and productivity.
