Take off the handbrake!

Tackle the restraining forces in your business

Having worked with a wide variety of businesses and business owners, I’ve found that there are a number of restraining forces that can hold a business back from growth.

It’s like trying to drive forwards with the handbrake on!

What's holding your business back?

Maybe you recognise some of these themes in your business:

  • the benefits of your product or service aren't being communicated to customers clearly
  • you, as the business owner or managing director, are a bottleneck - decisions get slowed up, or made on patchy information
  • you don't have enough thinking time to really move the business forward in a planned way
  • there is a lack of management skills and experience, which acts as a brake on the productivity and motivation of the team
  • there is no clear vision or plan and so activities are sporadic and uncoordinated, so initiatives don't get started properly or there sufficient follow-through
  • there isn't enough spare cash to reinvest in the business
  • team roles are unclear and so tasks get missed, things get repeated or duplicated
  • inefficient processes or a unclear procedures wast time and create unnecessary cost
  • sales are sporadic as there is no repeatable sales process
  • suppliers and partners are unreliable, causing errors, costs and problems with your customers

Are you tired of your business being held back?

Maybe now is the time to put a plan of action together to address the restraining forces in your business, to take the handbrake off and remove the things that could be holding you back.
