“The benefits of this coaching were clearly evident on personal levels as well as being solid and tangible at the business level, whereby we achieved a 5-times return on investment when measuring the fees paid for the coaching over 1 year against the associated increases in earnings (increased profits) in the same period.

Without hesitation I recommend Ronan for personal and business coaching.”

John Jamieson, Owner & Managing Director, Jamieson Foley & Associates, Consulting Engineers, Sydney

Those not in business often do not have to deal with the personal growth that is required of a business owner or leader. Whereas an employee gets paid no matter what and gets holidays and much more, the business owner is responsible for creating the enterprise which provides employment to communities, pays taxes, and delivers products and services to the world.

Most importantly, the success of a business is dependent on those in charge of the business and on those running the business. In the case of a small business, it’s a reflection of the owner.

If you look at a global organisation; the performance of that business is a reflection of the board and senior management because they made the strategic decisions around which markets to operate in and which products and / or services to deliver, as well as pricing and culture and what type of people the business would hire and fire.

If you are running a business and it’s only you, then your business will be a reflection of you. If there are a few others involved in the running of the business, then that business will be a reflection of the leadership group.

In engagements with Business Owners we optimise for the following:

  • Owner’s energy, focus, mind-set and ability to take insightful action

  • Implementation of profitability & growth models through ground breaking paradigms

  • Personal evolution through powerful and easy-to-use mental models, tools and techniques

  • Scalability through structure and strategy and effective delegation to high-performers

  • Lifestyle and legacy: living a meaningful life, doing meaningful work

  • Transformational deployment of industry beating strategies and business insights

Internal and External Results

The success of a business is therefore dependent on the owner’s own ideas, beliefs and development as the owner or managing director. The strategies, pricing, culture, staff and financial performance are all reflections of what you bring to the business.

Our coaching and consulting program for business owners is a two-track approach where we simultaneously work with the person in charge and also with the business. The degree to which we work with each is dependent on the desired outcome of the owner and the current situation of the business.

The results however are tangible for the owner and measurable for the business whether it be financially, culturally and personally, or externally in the marketplace.
