There was a manager who, when asked how many people worked at his company, replied, "About half."
This joke highlights a sad and costly reality. A lot of people are only turning up at work because they need the money and perhaps for some social contact.
When surveys repeatedly show that the majority of people don't particularly enjoy their work, it tells business owners and leaders that they have some work of their own to do ...
Well, only if they want to attract and retain talent, and have teams of motivated, innovative and productive people!
There are many reasons why people may not be as engaged as they could be. Having worked with people across a wide range of industries and professions, we are familiar with the common ones.
Sometimes it is personal (e.g. an individual is simply in the wrong kind of job or organisation for them).
However, in our experience, a lot of it is related to the quality of communication and leadership. That can be substantially improved with our coaching work, and now we can do even more for you.
You see, sometimes business owners and leaders are not fully tuned in to the aspirations and frustrations of their people.
That can be fixed quickly thanks to some leading edge technology.
We can help you build a dashboard with regular quality information revealing the vital signs of organsational engagement. After all, you can only improve the things you can see, measure and monitor!

I worked with Peter as a business coach/mentor in Australia while at Origin Energy many years ago. His process of self-reflection, discussion and the implementation (and follow-up) of a personal action plan achieves the desired results. Peter's insight and systematic approach to identifying issues that impede a person's professional development have helped me deal with people and situations more effectively. I certainly recommend Peter to people looking to develop confidence and push through their comfort zone.
