Helping your business and people be the best they can be.

Business Executive Coaching & Mentoring

Every top athlete has a coach to help them be the best they can be, and business executive coaching is now becoming more widespread, helping you deliver:

  • Faster growth
  • More customers and sales
  • Fresh ideas to improve profitability
  • Enhance existing and development of new strategies
  • Solutions to address complex business issues
  • Your full potential, both organisational and personal
  • Support with behaviour change

Businesses leaders regularly face stressful or challenging situations. You may be facing demanding growth or profit improvement targets, changes in competitor or market conditions, internal cultural issues, a merger or business exit or simply acknowledge that certain members of your senior team are stretched and would benefit from some direct support.

Businesses will often have ideas on how to address these issues however a Mentor or Executive Coach will bring experience and techniques to help develop the most effective and cost effective response for you and your business.

We work with business owners, MDs and other senior/board level individuals in organisations of all sizes and sectors.  We understand that you are seeking high impact and practical support to help clarify and resolve business challenges and improve the performance of your key people; we provide this and thereby deliver tangible improvement to your financial performance.

Our business executive coaching and mentoring service is tailored to your specific objectives, needs and requirements, and is delivered by a seasoned executive with a blend of both practical senior management experience, and mentoring and coaching expertise. From experience we find a combination of monthly one-to-one meetings supported by telephone conversations, as and when required, to generally be the most effective business executive coaching and mentoring model. All discussions are focused, and session notes and recommended actions are recorded, with progress reviewed at each session. Our clients value sharing and exploring ideas in confidence, challenging and thought-provoking discussion, robust complementary thinking and our considered guidance based on relevant experience.

I get timely access to the HR thinking and advice that I need, as and when the business needs it. Using Outset in this way, ensures that Barretts is one-step ahead of where it needs to be.

Paul Barrett,  Group CEO, Barretts

Outset always respond promptly to our enquiries. They’re friendly, open and honest. We pay a set fee per year for consultancy and they actually remind us if we've not used enough! We can then use that time for additional support we would normally have to pay for outside our scope, like training etc.

Kathy Smart, Head of Governance and Support Services,  Charlton Athletic Community Trust

The team at Outset had been really helpful on an ad hoc basis but as the business grew we realised we were spending quite a lot of time on areas we didn’t have any expertise in and this was a risk to our business.  Outset provide a cost effective way of managing the HR process in our business freeing up time for us to focus on our core competencies.
