Stop Competing on Price!
Most businesses believe if they're not the cheapest (or close to it), they're not going to win the business. Agree it's cause for much debate -- especially in recent times -- however we need solid strategies to help our customers focus on things... Read More »

Recalibrate 1-on-1 Return to top ↑

This program is designed for Business Owners/CEOs/General Managers who face some of the following:

  • Feeling stuck on a treadmill which means next year is likely to be a photocopy of this year.
  • Understand the need to delegate, but take back the task because no-one does it like they do.
  • Know they need more systems so it's not all about them but never get round to it.
  • Wonder if they can ever get out of this 'survival mode' they're in.
  • Would like to get an outsider's perspective but wonder if they can afford it.
  • Know they need to do more marketing but that sounds like more work.
  • Don't really understand the numbers - except out of overdraft is good!

Our 1-on-1 program is tailored to zone in and Recalibrate the areas of the business which hold you back the most while at the same time checking in that the foundations are strong right across the business. This is typically not a quick fix - growth strategies without strong foundations will cause the business to crumble faster.

Sessions are tailored to zone in and Recalibrate the areas of the business which hold you back the most while at the same time checking in that the foundations are strong right across the business. Whilst sessions take a systematic approach, there is also committed time to 'brainstorming'.

Recalibrate Team Return to top ↑

This program is designed for Businesses who typically have a team of 5 or more and the Owners/General Managers are going through some of the following:

  • They aren't nearly as passionate about this business as they should be.
  • I think they look at me as 'skyving' off when I'm out of the office.
  • They seldom come up with anything useful outside their immediate role.
  • They look after the customers OK but rarely go that extra mile.
  • The only time they follow up quotes is when I get on their back.
  • They seem to think I'm making a fortune - if only they knew.
  • Our weekly meetings feel more like a 'whine session' and some don't even turn up.

Whilst the above may seem a little dramatic, most of you reading this will relate to some elements (we know this because we've heard you!)

Recalibrate Team is a group workshop style program which is designed to raise the awareness and buy-in to the goals of the business. Once achieved (and most importantly), our aim is to create the environment of accountability and performance that the team themselves are motivated to both measure and sustain.

Note - Recalibrate Team can also be run together with Recalibrate 1-on-1.
