An example of what executive coaching can do in an SME:
Aged 40, Jack Walker ran what many would regard as a successful business before he started being coached. One year later, sales more than doubled.
Sales: before and after a years coaching
At the same time he is working dramatically fewer hours.
Average weekly hours: before and after a years coaching
In addition, he now:
- plays golf once a week
- rarely works evenings
- has reconnected with friends
- spends more time with his family
- feels in complete control
“Frankly, having reviewed the progress I have made in just over a year I am amazed. Like so many things in life one does not notice the little changes that are made each day or week, but when compared to a benchmark the results can be incredible”
An example from a corporate environment:
“Since working with Bill Ford, I have turned around my career and been promoted several times. From a staff role with no direct reports, I have been running a major business with over a dozen countries and a staff of over 800 including several country general managers and vice presidents. Bill has played an invaluable role in my growth and indeed my financial success. I would wholeheartedly recommend Bill Ford to any ambitious manager or director that really wants to take their career and finances to the next level”
