Success Spotlight

Paul Brockie

Director of Absolute Energy Insulation

Paul Brockie is assigned to the full business coaching programme from Your Success, including Lite Fundamentals, regular meetings throughout the month and ‘on-call’ advice. The company started working with Your Success initially for monthly accounts, before moving on to business coaching.

“Gilbert brings his expertise to look at the business from the outside, helping us to focus on the direction and future of the business, and opportunities for growth. I have a lot of ideas and Gilbert helps me to piece it together and can challenge me when needed. He asks the hard questions of people.

“Gilbert’s great. When we review the monthly accounts, he’ll point out any alarm bells and also gives positive feedback when we’re nailing it.

“As part of the programme, he keeps me accountable with set targets. He knows I’m super busy, so he keeps me on track. You can end up doing what’s easy or what you like, rather than what the business needs. Gilbert is really good at helping me to focus.

“He’s also really well connected with good professional people in other fields and can connect us with the right people when the business needs it.

“Gilbert’s a fantastic guy to deal with. He understands the business really well, what I want and what I’m thinking. I’ve been with other mentors who are not really that engaged. Gilbert is extremely enthusiastic about innovation and technology, he’s a ‘go forward’ kind of guy, who thrives on our success. We can talk to him about anything, it’s like he’s part of the team. He sees my call and he answers it. He almost treats it like it’s his own business.”

Absolute Energy is a leading supplier and installer of insulation throughout New Zealand.

Lite Fundamentals Coaching Programme

The steps involved in moving your business towards its goals can be divided into:

1. Getting more organised
2. Getting more work
3. Doing more profitable work.

Your Success’ Lite Fundamentals Coaching Programme is a good introduction to planning and is perfect for businesses looking for help achieve success.

Over the course of a year, you get six planned coaching sessions and two sessions to help with those problems that arise from time-to-time in business.

Most businesses find this as a great starting point for business coaching, especially if they have not done a lot of work on the business (just in it).

“It was about working out what I should be focussing on and establishing some structure in running the business. It was a great chance for me to take a step back and take a bird’s eye view of the business, looking at what my strengths were and where I was heading.”

Sarah Hutt, Willow Floral Design

Growth Fundamentals Coaching Programme

Success is about planning. The best product or service and hard work can come to nothing if you don’t have a good plan.

This coaching programme is ideal if you want to:
• Increase your growth, profitability and cashflow in your business
• Unlock your business potential
• Measure your progress

The Growth Fundamentals is a needs-based business coaching programme that helps you realise your success.

The first step is getting to know you, over a coffee of course.

We then work through a detailed questionnaire to identify your needs, so we can provide you with a business coaching proposal tailored specifically to you and your businesses success.

In the proposal, we let you know up front how much of your time is needed for each recommendation in the plan.

On-Going Business Coaching

Let us be your sounding board.

When you’re busy in the business it can be difficult to find the time or clarity to look at the bigger picture. Having someone independent in your corner can be invaluable.

On-going coaching provides you with accountability and support to keep you on target.

How it works

We can either meet with you on an ad-hoc basis or regularly.

On a regular basis we would work together to set 90-day action plans.

In between our scheduled meetings, we’re just an email or phone call away.

The benefits of on-going business coaching

  • Keep on track with increased support
  • Increased profitability and cashflow.
  • We work with you to determine a process to report actual results against budget.
  • An understanding of the key drivers of your business and what impacts them.
  • Identifying and helping to solve your burning issues.
  • Access to an expert sounding board, so you can discuss your ideas and the impact of these prior to making any decisions within the business.
  • Keeping your business plan alive.

“We can talk to him about anything, it’s like he’s part of the team. He sees my call and he answers it. He almost treats it like it’s his own business.”
