What is Harmonised World Business Mentoring Coaching?

Are you a Director or Senior Executive who could use support developing yourself or improving your team’s performance?

Today’s Chairmen, CEO’s and Business Owners must deal with a myriad of pressures that never existed before – the tyranny of quarterly results, customer power through social media, shareholder revolts, press intrusions, environmental responsibilities, global competition, technological advances, new generational values and, more recently, volatile financial markets – to name but a few. It’s not surprising that today’s leaders are extraordinarily busy, and often quite lonely, people.

Many businesses and organisations have gone through or are going through significant change. The pace of change is increasing.  Great organisations recognise the importance mentors coaches can play in offering assistance to people during periods of change. Mentoring Coaching is recognised worldwide as a highly effective human resource development process. Examples can be found in many diverse organisations from public and private sector, from service to manufacturing industries. There are mentoring programmes in financial services, tourism and leisure, educational institutions, petro chemical industries, public sector/government, charities, sports…the list goes on.

Operating at the level that you are brings great reward but also great pressure. It can indeed be a lonely place. The opportunities for you to be challenged by others and where appropriate, gain accurate, robust and unbiased feedback/advice are extremely limited, if available at all. Furthermore, progressive leaders, no matter how talented, often struggle to transfer even their most powerful off-site experiences into changed behaviour on the front line.

Mentors Coaches do more than influence behaviours; they are an essential part of the leader’s learning process, providing knowledge, opinions, and judgment in critical areas. Reasons companies engage mentors coaches have changed. In the past, most companies engaged a mentor coach to help fix toxic behaviour at the top. Today, most mentoring coaching is about developing the capabilities of high-potential performers.

Every successful person in history has used a teacher, mentor or coach at some point during their rise. For public and private individuals, business owners, managers, and those who want to become more effective, valuable and enriched, our Mentoring Coaching is designed to empower you with the focus, insight and the accountability you need to achieve the consistent results you demand.

Harmonised World Mentoring Coaching brings the calibre of mentoring coaching talent previously reserved for the boards of major corporates to business owners running companies of all sizes, with mentors coaches who also understand the issues and pressures faced in running smaller companies, where there are far fewer, if any, support structures. We therefore insisted that all our business coaches have personal experience running SME's or larger organisations, as well as a track record of outstanding results working with business owners.

Businesses might employ mentors coaches at any stage of the business growth curve, including:

  • Start-up and business planning
  • Learning to delegate
  • Building a team structure
  • Resolving changing relationships
  • Introducing management, operational, financial processes
  • Developing a sales marketing plan
  • Major expansion, new project
  • Business turnaround
  • Sale or purchase

Lets consider Business Mentoring Coaching

Today’s business owners, CEOs, executives often feel that they are married to their business, and that it demands working all hours. Sometimes the business does not generate enough profit to justify your efforts. Doing the same thing, the way you have always done it, does not generate different results. Being challenged and focused on taking actions that grow profits and allow you to work on driving the business forward involves small changes that together contribute to massive change over the long term.

Why are you in business? Your business may be successful, however you may have lost sight of where the business is going and why? Having a HW Mentor Coach can be your sounding board, and help clarify your thoughts about events and problems in the business or organisation. Many business owners and CEOs have a great amount of business experience, most however have not invested in themselves for years. They may send their team and staff on training courses, however they neglect themselves as the need for generic training diminishes.

Business Mentoring Coaching is often the favoured route of Business Owners and Managing Directors because it is considerably more time efficient and effective than any other intervention. It is individually tailored to your needs and entirely outcome focused.

The core strength of our mentor coaches lies in the combination of their intellectual, commercial and professional experience and results in Harmonised World being uniquely equipped to engage in highly successful executive coaching at this level.  A broad industry knowledge and experience across a variety of client sectors significantly enhances the board coaching experience. Our coaches include those who have direct experience of operating as part of a Board as well as those with many years’ experience of working at a senior level.

Are you and your team properly equipped with the skills, knowledge and ethical understanding you need to perform at the highest level?…

Whether you are running a business that is just starting up, or growing a business to £100m we should be able to help you accelerate your business success.  It is essential to determine what your needs are and to ensure that the mentor coach can supply you with the type and level of service you require.  Those who get the most out of mentoring coaching have a passionate desire to learn and grow.  Do not engage a mentor coach on the basis of reputation or experience without making sure that the fit is right.  The right match is absolutely key to the success of a mentoring coaching experience. Without it, the trust required for accelerated performance will not develop.

Top 3 Reasons Why Mentors Coaches Are Hired

Develop high potentials

Act as a sounding board

Address derailing behaviour

Good mentoring coaching gives someone who’s busy and competent the space in which to step back and examine themselves. Asking the right mentoring coaching questions means the difference between a one-way interrogation and a dynamic learning session. The right question can stop clients in their tracks as they finally see their own actions from a different perspective or envision a new solution to an old problem. They may indeed learn to question themselves so on the next occasion they can catch themselves in the act and change their actions in the moment.

An important insight about what companies ask mentors coaches to do and what they actually end up doing. Consider work/life balance.

It’s rare that companies hire business mentors coaches to address non-work issues, yet over 75% of mentors coaches report having gotten into personal territory at some time. It underscores the fact that for most executives, work and life issues cannot be kept entirely separate. This is particularly true of senior executives who spend gruelling hours on the job and are often on the road and away from home. Many of them feel some strain on their personal lives. Not surprisingly, therefore, the more coaches can tap into a leader’s motivation to improve his or her home life, the greater and more lasting the impact of the coaching is likely to be at work. Harmonised World offers a full wide range of life development programmes that can allow business owners, CEOs and executives the opportunity to bring back a work life balance.

Messages from our Clients…

“After 25 years in grocery industry I thought I knew everything. After a little scepticism, I was bowled over by the professionalism and knowledge of the Harmonised World Mentor Coach I worked with. Harmonised World helped me deal with issues that I thought I was an expert at, but I now realise I was failing to get the optimum result. From my public speaking phobia, to reigniting the board for success and succession, to motivating the team, I am now more excited about my company’s future than I have ever been. An added bonus, my wife says she has got the man she married back and my children say it is wonderful to spend time with me now that I am less stressed and more fun to be around. I cannot express how much I have loved the process, even though at times I was well out of my comfort zone! The whole thing has changed my life and my business 100%. Thank you Harmonised World!”
Business Mentoring Coaching (Board + Executive + Team + Life Personal Development) & Strategic Advisory Projects
“The time I have spent with my Harmonised World Mentor Coach has seen me close my old business and reopen as a new company. Having a sounding board that was from outside the company helped me get clear about the decisions I needed has saved me having a heart attack from stress! My Mentor Coach has consistently brought valuable ways of doing things that are just practical, ideas that I could implement and see the results of pretty much instantly. Vital to this was the accountability sessions, which really gave me a kick up the backside! The learning was great, but it was those accountability sessions that kept me on track and forced me to take actions that I would have sat on the fence with for ages. This has been one of the best return on investment for my company and me, I wish I did it sooner. I would give the experience 10 out of 10!”
Business Mentoring Coaching (Executive + Life Personal Development)
“I was put on to Harmonised World Mentoring Coaching by our HR department. I wasn’t sure what to expect but was more than pleasantly surprised at how much I learned, and how many ‘light bulb’ moments I had. My Mentor Coach was able to see straight through my excuses, and did so in the most endearing supportive way, and helped me get to the heart of the matter. The knowledge of organisational culture and human psychology meant he could really empathise with situations and their challenges and helped me see things from a range of perspectives. The 6 sessions I had have greatly improved my ability to empower, develop and challenge my team, my time management and most of all my identity – in short, to become a better leader. The results have been evident both to myself, my team and colleagues. In particular, my relationship with my manager has dramatically improved which has enabled us to work much more effectively together to the benefit of the business. Although my company paid for the sessions, there is no other recommendation I can give about Harmonised World other than that I have continued with my Mentor Coach and pay for it myself.”
