First and foremost – We’re Straight Talkers!
You’ve got friends; you don’t need your coach to be your friend (although, due to the close nature of the relationship, we may well become just that). What you need from your support team is for them to work with you without judgement or agenda to achieve the results you are looking for – as quickly as possible.
Our clients benefit from our ‘cut to the chase’ philosophy – we call this Laser coaching; our clients call it “No BS” (their words, not ours!). It saves everyone a lot of time, and our clients a lot of money and frustration.
We’re a Real, “Bricks and Mortar” Business, Like You.
To us, it seems a little trite to point it out, but on talking to our clients they tell us it makes a big difference.
Many coaches coach as an additional source of income to their ‘day’ job, and have been ‘in transition’ to coaching for a number of years. We are not adverse to home based businesses, but we draw the line at our clients meeting us to have a confidential conversation in a crowded coffee shop.
Our office, located in West Lakes, provides our clients with a confidential space to collaborate, whiteboards to brainstorm on – resources of all kinds to assist in facilitating some awesome mind shifts, and brilliant coffee to boot!
As a business, Straight Talk has been through the start up stage of an emerging business and is now fully supported by an established team. This means our clients get a coach who is 100% Client-Focused, and who is going to be there for you when you need them! Oh, and we know, that answering the phone when it rings is important too.
We focus on the Whole Picture, for Results that Last.
Your sustainable success depends on a strong foundation. We work with you to ensure your business has a strong foundation first. This means that when you grow you can grow fast, with strength, and remain sustainable for the long term. This attitude is so important to us that we make a point of only working with clients who are committed to building their business in this manner. Our clients can be assured that they are going to coached on the whole of their business growth points, not just the ones that are easy, more appealing, or more obvious.
We’re a Diverse Team of Passionate Specialists
Our team covers a range of areas of expertise, experience, age and passions.
We are proud of the variety in our team as we believe it provides our clients with a more rounded base of support. We are a big believer that one person cannot, and should not, do everything in the business. Unlike other coaching businesses, our coach is not an island. Our team approach to your business means that for your fee you have multiple people, with multiple expertises working on your business – not just a ‘stand alone coach’.
We are professionally trained, and committed to ongoing professional development.
The lack of regulation in the coaching industry means anyone can call themselves a coach regardless of whether they are trained as a coach or not. Our field of expertise is coaching and consulting with SMEs, and that’s just what our core business is, too. Most business owners have limited time to be across all areas of business all of the time. We consider it our responsibility to look out for your business as if it were our business.
Our commitment to excellence equates to up-to-date, leading edge thinking in all areas of your business.
We are priced differently – and it’s competitive.
Our fees represent excellent value for service.
We measure our success by your results – not by six minute billable blocks of time!
Talk to us about how you’d like to work together, and we can offer you a tailored package that we know you’ll find competitive.
We will work with your Accountant!
.. if you want us to.
We’re a relationship based business, and we know the relationship business owners have with their accountant is an important one. Our financial expert on our team is not here to oust them from their position – we want to work with them to get you the best results possible.
If you don’t have a great accountant, we can even help you find one
We offer a Guarantee on Our Performance
Coaching is a profession which many initially find it difficult to picture the return on investment of until they have engaged a great coach for some time. It gives our newer clients comfort to know that their relationship with Straight Talk is backed by a guarantee, taking the risk out of their decision to work with a coach.
“There is no doubt about the power of a mastermind group. That is, two or more minds haring towards a positive objective or common goal in ones business. Contributing and being offered different point of views will only grow you and your business.”
