Help to Grow will help you drive sustainable growth in your business and career, without ever losing what matters most to you.

Too often leadership and success experts will talk about the importance of work-life balance. We do not. The phrase implies that an improvement in one automatically equals a decline at the other end of the scale. This kind of thinking is both emotionally debilitating and factually just plain wrong. We help leaders like you improve their work-life integration, ensuring that you drive both growth in the business and your own life at the same time.

We are, we believe, the only leadership development company that teaches both people management and personal management, or; Growing Your Business and Growing Yourself.

Whatever level of leadership you aspire to, Help to Grow will provide you with a solid foundation of self-knowledge and a toolkit of practical models to aid decision making in difficult situations.

Growth Leaders Programme

At the core of the Help to Grow methodology is the Growth Leaders Programme.

Most executive coaching is targeted at those nearing the apex of their career and involves hours of preparation and wrap-up by the coach as part of the billable package. Our approach reduces the cost by having you work through each workbook in advance of each session.

Our Mission

We democratise leadership to empower everybody in the business to improve the bottom line as well as their own health and happiness. We believe that there are many people with unrealised leadership potential. By helping them realise it we can diversify leadership, unlock their latent talents and open up new possibilities for both them and the business.

We believe passionately that good business is fundamental to a good society, and good people are essential for good business. By helping emerging leaders realise their full potential we can bring greater balance to the lives of individuals, companies and society as a whole.

Purpose. People. Pace.

Purpose People Pace pyramid

The Help to Grow integrated model forms the core of the Growth Leader’s programme.

The two sections labelled Self-Awareness and Self-Control respectively, are the foundation of the pyramid just as they are the foundation of a long and successful career. If we do not start with these two then not only can we find ourselves working against our values, but we can unconsciously end up sacrificing the very things we set out to work for; family, health and happiness. Further still, without the ability to regulate our worst traits and amplify our strengths our careers will be permanently mired in a struggle against ourselves.

Purpose People Pace pyramid

Purpose, People and Pace form the 3 distinct stages we train leaders to work through when leading others. We believe the best work is performed by teams who share a strong sense of purpose and are composed of great people with mutual values. These teams must then be inspired and supported by strong leadership to deliver at the maximum manageable pace. The 3Ps model is our proven framework for implementing this.

Training Cats and Dogs?

How do you get entrepreneurs and company people to work well in the same team?

Consolidating or transforming businesses would do well to identify which is which and avoid trying to turn cats into dogs and vice versa.

Leading for Career and Money

It is not fashionable to say that we want to lead to earn more.

The likelihood is that our first steps in leadership are done out of a drive to improve our circumstances rather than to benefit others.

Often the easiest path does not go as far nor as high. Which path are you on?
