business_growth2_copy.jpgFocus on Growing your Business

The skills and behaviours required to grow a business are different to those required for a successful launch. We all know that the success rate of new businesses is very low and if you are a small business owner you should congratulate yourself on getting to where you are today.

Get Prepared to Grow

In order to grow, you will need to:-

  • Review your business model 
  • Create a new strategy for growth 
  • Find new opportunities
  • Create sound processes 
  • Start building a larger team
  • Change your leadership and management style 
  • Focus on the future rather than the day to day.

This is a transition some small business leaders find difficult to make and as a result they become the barrier to their own company's growth.

The Business Growth Programme

Striding Out has designed a programme to help small business owners to take a step back from the day-to-day and look to the future. The programme will help you develop strategies for growth and develop as a leader.

The programme is run by professional coaches and it consists of:-  

  • A series of three half-day workshops over 2 months
  • A series of one to one coaching sessions over 6 months

This combination of activities will give you the opportunity to step back from daily tasks, strategise and implement your actions to see actual results during the timescale of the programme.

At the end of the programme you will leave with personal and business development strategies and an action plan for the next 1-3 years.
