  • Increasing your clarity and focusing your energies

  • Creating mastery around the business you want.

As our Coaching is a bespoke intervention, it is very difficult to say exactly what it involves as it would be a different experience for everyone reading this. However, below are some of the specific benefits that our clients (or any MD or Business Owner) would gain from working with us.


7 Reasons why all Business Owners should consider Business Coaching:

  1. Because you are already good and recognise that it’s going to take that bit extra to become Outstanding! - In the same way that top sportsmen and women will always seek out the top coaches in their field, you too need a Sturdy Business Coach. We will hold you accountable, demand results, push you, cajole you and also be there to congratulate you on a job well done!

  2. You feel that you are married to your business and that it demands working all hours - If you are ready to start taking control of the hours that you contribute to the business and get better results then you should consider Business Coaching.

  3. Your business does not generate enough profit to justify your efforts - If you want to continue doing what you have always done it should come as no surprise that you will get the same results. Our Coaches will challenge this and get you focused on taking actions that grow profits and allow you to work on driving your business forward. It will involve change, so you need to be open to this for it to be successful. The results could literally be to increase your revenues and profits within months of starting the programme.​

  4. You believe that the business will suffer if you are not there all the time; taking a holiday is out of the question - Unless your business can run without your being there every day, then it might come as a shock to some to learn that you are, in reality, an employee of the business not a REAL Business Owner. Your Coach will help you to put in the business processes and to develop your management team so that the business will thrive whether or not you feel like going to work today. Long holidays and time spent improving your golf handicap all, suddenly, become a reality. Life is short. Why are you in the business at all?

  5. You have fallen out of love with your business - Do you sometimes think life would be simpler without all the hassle? Your Business Coach will reignite your passions and help you redevelop your visions and goals for the Business.

  6. You have a lot of business experience, however you haven’t really invested in yourself in years - You may send your staff on training courses but your own requirements have moved beyond generic training. As a result, you have neglected yourself. Investing in Sturdy's Coaching is not a personal indulgence. Your Coach will work with you to improve specific aspects of your own performance and provide one-to-one support and motivation to achieve and build upon the improvements. The relationship between you and your Business Coach ensures swift and maximum impact on yours and the businesses performance providing a measurable ROI.

  7. You have lost sight of where the business is going and why - As an “outsider” your Coach can see the wood from the trees. We are not blinded by industry preconceptions or your businesses previous way of doing things - “we’ve always done it this way” does not cut the mustard with us! We will ask you the difficult questions you have been avoiding and challenge you to take action.

Some Additional Benefits of Business Coaching….

For a lot of people being a Business Owner can be a lonely job - one of the many roles your Sturdy Coach plays is that of a sounding board and a confidant, someone who genuinely cares about the issues you face and is there to help you find solutions to the problems quickly and effectively. It may not be their main function, but it is an invaluable one.

Business Coaching is often the favoured route of Business Owners and Managing Directors because it is considerably more time efficient and effective than any other intervention. It is individually tailored to your needs and entirely outcome focused.
