The key to success for you and your business is having clear vision, goals and strategies to achieve them. Do you remember Alice in Wonderland? read the extract below….

And that’s the thing if you don’t know where you are going or where you want to go, how do you know how to get there!

Throughout the life of your business, your direction will change from time to time, expansion, new product developments, downsizing and of course personal reasons can all have a huge effect on businesses of all sizes. We put coaching at the heart of our approach to supporting your needs

It is important to know where you are going, unlike Alice you cannot just wander around, hoping something will happen. It won’t and very quickly you will have lost your head, gone as mad as a hatter, or curl up in a big tea pot hoping the world will go away!

From start-up businesses to multinational corporates, we can support businesses of all shapes and sizes on your journey and personal development.

Coaching is THE master skill that will rapidly take you from wherever you are now to wherever you want to be.

Whether you are a leader, teacher, manager, entrepreneur or simply looking to start a new career or develop in your existing one … our support will give you the skills expertise to make this happen.

 

New Directions offers a number of tailored made solutions to your problems, Our Personal and Professional Development Programmes will help you get promotions, become a better leader, manage teams or run a great business. Become a Master Coach and open up all types of opportunities for yourself.

We will help you break the shackles that hold you and your organisation back, to help you to live up to your full ability and attain happiness.

Testimonials.

“Andy recently provided a short course on coaching and team building for the whole team here at Halton Chamber and I was very impressed with his approach as well as the skills and tools he shared with us. We all benefitted very much from the sessions and were pleased with the results. The sessions, themselves, were enjoyable as well as interesting and informative and he left us with a number of suggestions and ideas that we could implement straight away. I highly recommend Andy.”

Paula Cain Chief Exec Halton Chamber of Commerce

“ I have to say, mind mapping, goal setting, and visualising, have, over the past few weeks, had a huge impact on my life and the lives of others both in business and family life, I have made significant progress.”

As a current participant on the Masters course, I can fully recommend the value this will add to both yourselves personally and the value it will have on your business. If you are at that level of thinking of where do I go next, or how can I improve on what I already have then you need to seriously consider attending this course. We all have the skills to improve, to learn and to develop. What many of us actually lack is the understanding on how to increase these skills in a way our own brains work. This is where you will benefit massively from attending one of these courses”

Ashcroft – Business Manager

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for today.  It was an enormous help, don’t know where I would have been able to find that extra little step to move forward without it so a massive THANK YOU

 “Andy has had the inspired idea, of creating a group to help people into business and networking. Far from working against local networks, the work Andy is doing will in time increase their memberships and provide them with new contacts who are versed in the basics of networking and ready for the often more formal networking occasions. We fully back Andy’s endeavours and can only hope that more agencies and companies come on board, to help him take this into different areas and grown on the success he is already yielding.”
