Working with William
You need to make changes to reconnect with what matters most to you, and through questioning, analysis and sharing of experience, we will distil the essence of what you need to do, and plan how to do those things.
I promise that I will be honest, curious, and support your ambitions without jargon, and with clarity and care. Together, we will create the space for you to think about, design, and be Building Better Business.
An initial strategic oversight session will clarify how your business operates, and what a better business would look like for you. This session will give you increased understanding and control and allow you to immediately improve.
We will agree what has to change for you to build a better business. As your strategic imperatives, and guiding principles guide your decisions, your focus will be enhanced and the results will flow.
Strategy without action is just hot air. Take the right actions at the right time and everything improves. Our regular review and mentoring sessions keep you focused, building better business every day.
I have a well-developed ability to ask the right question to unlock your blocks and barriers. Those questions may, at times, appear difficult and uncomfortable, and you might otherwise avoid them. Yet together they let us develop, gain and share insight into your way of working. Rather than remaining unasked, these crucial, vital questions give you a clear understanding of what has to be done.
When the answers aren’t comfortable, you need a supporting, non-judgemental, steady hand to assist as we sift through the new information. Central to our work is that you feel at the heart of the process, in control of what happens and your decisions. Through our work together you will feel empowered to confidently build a better business.

We don’t plan to fail and we like to think that we are in control of our own destiny in a way that allows us to bring things back when they slip. Hoping that things will work out is the optimists’ curse, fearing that they won’t is the pessimists’ curse.
Simon Hazeldine’s book Neuro-Sell is a guide to many aspects of how your customers and prospects are both thinking and feeling during the sales process.
I don’t mention anything about technology, software, hardware, process design and so on. All of these things can help to support how a process is implemented, but none of them can design the process, nor its purpose.
