Some of the things that business leaders have asked us to assist them with.
Learn to like learning
Within a few days of landing a job in London, young New Zealander Kel Marsh found himself on a steep learning curve dealing with the leaders of large European organisations. This began a journey to understand the thinking and strategies used by leaders of large businesses intent on international growth.
Kel found that while senior leaders with big plans are inspiring to work with, they have a low tolerance for conventional solutions demanding fresh new thinking to meet challenges that often have no precedence. Fortunately some of these people took Kel under their wing, adjusting his thinking and business mindset.
An appreciation for big-picture, predicting what lies ahead, clever strategic thinking and execution - and always pass the ‘does this make good business sense’ test.
We don’t try to push businesses into conventional business frameworks.
That tends to make businesses similar in performance and drains inspiration out of the enterprise. Instead we suspend conventional thinking until we find out a) what is truly unique about each business, b) how it can become very valuable to customers and c) how it will 'speak' to customers to gain and hold their attention.
Once we have determined these three things we find there there is a confidence to create a truly unique plan with big objectives. Only then will we introduce the best practice rules that enhance and support the elements that sets the business apart, motivates the team and makes the business exciting.
We don’t fix what’s wrong with the business instead we help leaders build better businesses. These are two different mindsets leading to very different results.
From the business owner of a high growth business: “Corporate River. It's been immensely helpful having your coaching. You have helped us to understand what our business opportunities are and given us a greater sense of control and confidence. This has been essential to moving to this level and into this market. We are really looking forward to the next level.”
