Assertiveness Coaching

Are you a really nice guy or gal?  Do you at times feel a little used or that you struggle to say no or perhaps you are a bit of a “people pleaser?”  From a professional perspective are you giving away too much value to your clients, unsure how to position or articulate the point where being a good guy ends and paying starts?  Do you struggle to turn your prospects into clients or to articulate your value? Assertiveness is a healthy way of communicating, the ability to speak in a way that is honest and respectful.  Being assertive doesn’t come naturally to everyone.  Some people communicate in a way that is too passive.  Others have a style that is too aggressive. Assertiveness is the quality of being self-assured and confident without being aggressive. In the field of psychology and psychotherapy, it is a learnable skill and mode of communication.  Learning assertive communication skills develops confidence and enables you to articulate your message in a clear and concise way. I work with you to determine the areas in your world where you would like to be more assertive and/or where a lack of assertion is holding you back from the goals you are wanting to achieve. We then work through a definitive process to develop assertiveness and confidence. Benefits of Assertiveness Coaching:
  • Have deeper, more authentic relationships
  • Increased overall confidence
  • Able to positively assert yourself
  • Have open, clear and honest communications
  • Listen actively

KPI Coaching

Do you want to better understand how to drive increased profit, cashflow and ultimately, business value? It’s easy to make excuses such as ‘I’m too busy working in the business right now to devote any time to working on this stuff’.  The better you understand your business, the easier it will be to increase your profits and free up cashflow. First, we’ll help you establish what your key drivers are.  These may be financial (e.g. gross profit margin), or non-financial (e.g. customer satisfaction ratings).  I’ll teach you how to measure each KPI and set improvement targets.  Once you’re confident measuring each KPI we’ll provide monthly coaching to help you implement a tactical plan focusing on the business processes and behavioural changes required to ensure improvement. Benefits of KPI Coaching:
  • Establish 3-5 key drivers that are fundamental to your business’s success
  • Set sensible targets for improving those KPIs

Investing a little time each week and making simple changes can dramatically improve your KPIs, thus positively impacting your business performance and personal life.
