Group Coaching for SMEs

Is your business hitting a glass ceiling? Do you feel like you’re working endless hours running a hamster wheel and going no-where? Having trouble recruiting the right team members, delegating, managing,
training and simply putting out fires?

This is exactly what this SME group coaching program is all about


Up-Skill Your Team

Too much to teach, not enough hours in the day? Are some of your team members causing more headaches than they’re solving? Are they lacking the skills to manage their team members, manage their time and resources, convert sales and lacking the communication skills needed to deal with customers, suppliers and colleagues without friction?

Shortly after transitioning my part-time business to a full-time venture, I found myself needing to secure more regular, on-going business opportunities. I have worked with Rick and Tala for some time and found that their no-fuss approach to business resonated with me. They have helped me clarify my thoughts and begin to structure some robust business processes, delivering immediate results.

Rick has certainly taught me the importance of KPI’s…apart from other aspects. It will change the way business will be conducted. Rick has got what it takes in taking a group of average people to the best of their ability.
