I’m in the ramp-up phase of my SME

“I was leading this company and Julienne (from SuREAL) was my right hand woman. She made a lot of the hard operational decisions, which gave me the time and made it easier for me to focus on making the business successful. Because she had the experience of a CA, she knew everything that had to be done and comprehensively understood and managed every aspect of the operations.”

Brett Beech,Former Managing Director, Beech Ovens

Now that your SME is successfully established, it’s time to significantly grow your business. But the thought of this growth might seem overwhelming from a financial, operations and people point of view. You know that you need to run the business in a more structured way to deal with increased sales and customers, you need to have your systems and business structure right, and that you need to be working on the business not in the business to achieve your vision and desired growth. But how do you go about tackling it?

You’ll have confidence in your strategic direction, backed by a clear, innovative vision and strategic plan, aligned to your core values and passion. You’ll be better placed to attract and retain the right people to support your business growth. You’ll be in a strong position to attract stakeholders/investors/business partners who are aligned to your business vision and can financially support your growth. You’ll have an increased likelihood of success.

Discover how understanding your drivers through the I.D. System™ can set the foundation for more effective leadership, decision making and collaboration. You’ll identify your own personal formula for success, fulfilment and effective leadership. You’ll have a high performing team.

Behind every successful person or team sits a great coach. Who’s coaching you? As your business grows, you might find it gets a bit lonely at the top. This is where a great coach becomes your sounding board and trusted advisor. You’ll be challenged, encouraged, motivated, held to account, and focused. Having a coach will give you the confidence to make the hard decisions you need to make in business in order to succeed.

A team coaching workshop will enable you to understand how you can improve individual performance, and work together more effectively as a team. This will speed up decision making processes, ensure the team is aligned to your vision, and make sure you’re creating an environment where people want to come to work. We can also help you establish an Advisory Board of trusted business advisors to guide the direction of your business.

Complex, non-streamlined operations can be the most stressful part of running a SME. Business operations planning will enable you to review and simplify your structure, finances and operations so you can free up more of your time for working on the business, not in the business.

You’ll have confidence that you and your business are keeping up with the pace of change in business and technology, and that you’re embracing the opportunities that will enable your business to grow. We can help identify and manage the change process for business transformation opportunities including:-

  • Real-time productivity systems
  • Business acquisition, merger and sale
  • International expansion
  • Culture transformation
  • Business reinvention
