Why we get it

When you start or take over a business it’s exciting, there are things you want to get in place. It’s a project, not just a job, and you put the effort and the time in to make it go places. But after a while, that extra effort is part of normality, and the first flush has now become routine.

And you are part of the relentless machinery picking up the jobs that no-one else is doing.

Then the guilt sets in: you feel you SHOULD be able to do more, and you OUGHT TO cover for all of the jobs and you have a DUTY to your staff.

And as you are part of the essence of the business it’s almost impossible to separate from that.

How we help you

From your first call for support, we will discover with you what are the roots of your concerns. We understand that with time pressures it can be challenging to balance this time to offload with the immediate demands of the business, so we work with you on this. Often, other less obvious concerns show themselves during this part.

We’re also really interested in what steps you’ve taken yourself. We’ve all heard “We tried that before – it didn’t work” many times, so it’s worth checking whether anything has changed since then or knowing what to avoid if not.

We know there will be expectations on your area of management as well as your personal needs, and it’s important that we also factor in future plans where possible so that action now doesn’t block action for later.

Because we’re also technical engineers, we don’t just narrow our focus on business operations, but include the manufacturing processes too, so opportunities to unlock capabilities in machinery and the people who use it often give a significant boost to productivity and successfully offload demands on you. We’re used to being seen as an intermediary that production teams vent their frustrations and good ideas on, that they don’t bring to you – often through respect or lack of confidence.

We won’t impose a formulaic framework, nor do we bring a shedload of jargon. Each business and every team is different from others – it’s what makes you different, and it’s what makes us different too!

Your plan is bespoke to you and your business. We’re there to help you introduce any changes without draining more of your own time. You get to spend that doing your own job.

And weekends.
