Strategy Coaching for Business Owners

Imagine... - Waking up each day knowing EXACTLY where your business is heading and feeling truly INSPIRED and MOTIVATED to make it happen - Knowing and believing that the successful business you aspire to have is not just possible, but INEVITABLE.

"Tamsen is a very smart and switched on coach. I work quickly and I get frustrated when coaches can't keep up with me or want to slow me down. Tamsen understands what works best for each individual and then how to apply that to the problem at hand. We worked on my overall business model and made some very fast progress and flagged some actions to be made with immediate effect. She has a bright, energetic personality too so the sessions are always fun! I would highly recommend her work!"

"It brought both clarity and focus to my personal vision and values I have found Tamsen so good to work with.

"The impact has been huge! Tamsen has worked with Elation in several ways over the last year, most recently helping my colleague and I redefine our roles within the business, our objectives for the business and our interaction with each other. Since joining Elation I have moved from a part-time intern through to Manager and now working directly alongside our MD. This has involved a lot of changes both to my job role and my working style: from having to be told what to do and how to do it to managing the MD. Working with Tamsen has boosted this development massively and as soon as the session ended we saw the results directly helping the business. The changes in the business have all been small, really easy to implement and have caused no disruption at all, but the impact has been huge! I now I have a really targeted approach to everything I do, taking ownership of it all, and the business has a really clear and achievable growth plan. Without working with Tamsen we"

"If you are feeling stuck or not quite sure if your business is giving you the results you want then I strongly advise you get in touch with Tamsen Six months ago my business was growing but not in the way I wanted and I felt like I was being carried along by the tide, not really knowing where I was heading or what it was that I really wanted. I met Tamsen at a networking event and everything she said resonated with my situation. Together we came up with my vision of "

"Each session with Tamsen has resulted in a leap forward! Tamsen and I have been business contacts since 2012 and I have always been impressed by both her business experience and her energy. In early 2014 we identified that we had a significant opportunity for growth at Elation but I knew that without the right decision making and the right buy in from the team I would not achieve my goals. I thought immediately of bringing Tamsen on board to help. Since that time Tamsen has run several sessions in the business, we have worked on a 1-2-1 basis to firm up my personal vision for the business. Tamsen has worked with the team to help them align themselves to my vision and ensure that they are driving the business forward with passion and she has also facilitated some great senior planning meetings. Everyone in the business agrees that when Tamsen comes along things get done and each session has resulted in a leap forward. The size and profitability of my business has doubled since working with Tamsen and she is without doubt a part of our long term plans. If being the best you can possibly be is important to you "

"We are aware of her in-depth understanding of her ability to develop infrastructures to enable them to grow Tamsen helped us to define our Vision for the business, create the business strategy, document our workflow and is now providing operational support, so that we can get on with developing the business. Having worked with Tamsen in a previous role, we were aware of her in-depth understanding of the needs and challenges of a growing business and her ability to develop infrastructures to enable them to grow. We look forward to working with her in the future as we develop Fair Contracts UK Ltd into different regions and industries."

A bit more about me

What's the most enjoyable thing about your work?
For me, there is nothing more enjoyable or personally satisfying than enabling people to grow, both personaly and professionally.

What is your vision for your business?
A national business growth platform for the smaller end of the business market where people are able to stand on their own two feet and build a business that supports their purpose and desired lifestyle.

If you could give one single piece of advice to a new start up business, what would it be?
Strategy is not for startups! Just go out there and get on with it initially. Network, network, network. Talk to people, work pro quo, get feedback and hone your message and product. Once you have some clients and some results and a reputation of sorts, seek out a business coach and mentor who has been there and done it and invest some time, energy and money in developing a strategy for growth.
