So how do we work?
For succession and strategic planning, we start with what is called a 'discovery phase' whereby we seek feedback from all family or team members who will be impacted by the planning process. This ensures that everyone has input from the outset, and it also helps to inform the coaching process thereafter.
Following the discovery phase, we help you and your family or business to move forward by supporting you to implement identified short term actions to achieve your ultimate long-term goals.
Accountability for agreed actions is key, meaning that everything we do is done 'with you' and 'by you', but never 'for you'. It just works better that way!
Alongside succession and strategic planning, we coach leadership and team development for individuals, farms and businesses. This coaching rounds out our offer of service, and means that people can work on their own development to assist them to articulate their thoughts and act in alignment with their values. This creates a win/win for improving a person's contribution to leadership conversations that matter, and to the overall team and family culture too.
