Mentoring for business success

"Liz has been my business mentor for the past eighteen months. During this time she has provided a comfortable environment in which I can discuss any issues that I am facing. Liz has helped me to make some difficult decisions – letting a senior member of staff go and changing my networking connections and habits are just two examples.
Most of all, Liz has a great ability to listen, empathise and understand me. In turn, this has allowed me to voice many issues and freely discuss them with her. The results have been outstanding. I can safely say that my company has blossomed during this period. Turnover and profits have more than doubled and my own personal growth has enabled me to become more decisive and positive. This has allowed me to make some great business decisions which I may not have previously made. These decisions have been made confidently, quickly and enjoyably.
Some of the areas that Liz has made me aware of:
  • Why I am an MD and what this means to me
  • How I can best enjoy the MD role and how to get the most from it
  • Celebrating and sharing success is a positive thing to do – both personally and for my staff
  • Communication: we are currently organising a company Away Day during which Liz will conduct team coaching about communication of our values and brand, both internally and externally
  • Timing recruitment appropriately and identifying the best candidates
Liz acts as my 'reality check' on strategies and solutions that I am considering and I know I can trust her confidentiality at all times."
