Let’s face it. Being a business owner isn’t for the faint hearted.
Is at least some of this like you?
Your business is doing well, but you’re regularly spinning many, many plates to keep it that way. You’re aware that you’re too busy ‘doing’ and would love to delegate more, to work ‘on’ your business. In the past, your attempts to delegate haven’t always gone well.
You’ve an idea of where you’d like your business to be in five-to-ten years, but never really find the time to firm-up this idea or work out how you’re going to get there.
You’ve found yourself handling a bigger workforce than you started out with. That’s great, and yet, it comes with its own challenges.
Although you can discuss things with members of your workforce, you’re never completely confident that their responses aren’t tainted by their role within the company. You sometimes think they may be agreeing simply to please you; or maybe the opposite.
While friends and family are generally supportive, they don’t necessarily run their own businesses, so they don’t fully grasp what it means; the joys and dramas, the decision-making, the risk-taking, the sleepless nights, the emotional roller-coaster, the conflicting pulls on time and energy.
It’s OK. You’re not alone.

Band of Bosses is a great idea. A group of disparate business owners with similar problems, taking time to help each other through the daily challenges we all face. I cannot recommend Hil and BoB highly enough.”

6 x 121 Executive Business Coaching Sessions
Coaching is most effective when it’s memorable, challenging and enjoyable.

We also review and realign with regard to progress made in your longer-term Game Plan.
6 x Band of Bosses® Group Sessions
Our meetings are informal yet structured. Meetings include:

2 Free books a year
Across the year, BOB members read and review (informally) two books that are linked to leadership.

What do our clients say…
Hear from Jo Snell
“I came thinking my choices were A or B and left with a brilliant plan C!”
Jo Snell ~ CEO Bransby Horses Welfare and Rescue
“A specific example of Band of Bosses® assisting me toward a new, and far better, solution came when I was the focus of one of our Solution Circles.
The key area of challenge I put to my fellow Band of Bosses® members (BOBs) was how to structure the Marketing Team to best effect. I had a couple of ideas, but I wasn’t sure either would get us to where we really needed to be. I valued the BOBs’ input.
Using the Solution Circle format, I was able get more clear in my own mind by articulating the challenge and answering the ‘Questions for Clarity’ from the other BOBs. Listening to the BOBs discuss possible options and courses of action, guided me toward a solution that I would not have reached, otherwise.”

“I came with a massive problem and left with a cunning plan”
Joanne Wilson ~ MD Fill The Gap Marketing
“On the morning of one of our Band of Bosses® (BOB) meetings, I had received the resignation of a key person in my business.
It was massive. I was utterly gutted.
I rang Hil to say I couldn’t make the BOB meeting, and she encouraged me to go along anyway, as my situation was one of the things BOB was there for.
Right off the bat, Hil switched the whole agenda around and made my situation the centre of attention. Together, all us BOBs explored the emotions and practical actions that come with this sort of thing happening.
It was so reassuring. Knowing that other people have been through the same and survived was just great. But then, also how they went about it. Things that I needed to make sure that I survived too. Ultimately, I left that meeting cool, calm and collected, compared to how I went in! I left with a positive plan.”
“I would have no hesitation in recommending Hil. She has been a delight to work with. I am not sure how she does it but I thoroughly recommend her services!”
Managing Director – Oldrids & Downtown
