Benefits of 1:1 Scaleup Mentoring

ADDAZERO Methodology - The 8 Elements of every Scaleup business

Long-term Vision

I start by encouraging you to really give consideration to the long-term impact for both you and your business, and create a sustainable legacy, aligning with ethical and honourable business practices.

Personalised Guidance

Unlike most ‘off the shelf’ coaching programmes, I provide tailored guidance, taking into account your specific business challenges and goals. This personalised approach is invaluable for addressing your unique needs.

Measuring Results / Accountability

With my guidance, you can expect measurable results, such as revenue growth, increased market share, and improved customer satisfaction. However, I can only assure you of this alongside hold you accountable for your business growth plans, ensuring that you stay on track and meet your targets.

Skill Development

We don’t know, what we don’t know.  I can help you enhance your skill set, whether it’s leadership, decision-making, recruitment, marketing, sales or finance?

Problem Solving

When challenges arise, I come into my own, with a breadth of experience, having supported Business Leaders from a variety of different industries/sectors and countries. I help brainstorm solutions and provide a fresh, experienced perspective on how to overcome obstacles.

Time Efficiency

I always help save time.  By implementing our 4-step process, I guide you away from ineffective strategies and toward more efficient methods of scaling your business.

Feedback / Support / Encouragement

Running a business can be challenging, so I provide emotional support and encouragement during tough times. I also provide honest and impartial feedback, helping you see your business from an outsider’s perspective, and a way forward.

Monitoring Trends

Staying up to date with the latest industry trends and market shifts is crucial. I can help you stay informed and adapt to changing circumstances, to ensure you maximise opportunity and mitigate risk.

I engaged with Jay’s 1:1 mentorship programme through a particularly difficult time in the company’s evolution. He was very quick to have a good understanding of the company, its position, direction and challenges. And since then, has been pivotal in the business’s continued growth and development.

We have achieved more in the last year than we had in the last 13!  I am forever grateful to him for the ongoing support we receive, and a customer for life.
