Our approach is totally focused on helping you achieve results by having clear goals in place so you are aiming for something tangible and measurable within a specific timescale. Our service starts off with self analysis/self evaluation before we move onto goal setting and achievement planning. What this means is that no stone is left unturned, it’s not always a comfortable process. Even when done with kindness and support, working with us is all about doing something different so you get a better result and that means change. We won’t lie, change is good but it’s not always comfortable and you will feel the challenge.
None of us like change, the human mind is programmed to stay doing what we are familiar with, so working with a consultant, particularly an Actionista consultant, will challenge you. Our process has been designed to facilitate change within you and what you want to achieve. It’s not about us telling you what to do – although we offer practical advice and step by step methods as you need them, it’s all about us helping you draw on your own reserves and use the tools and resources we provide to develop new ways to approaching challenges and the issues that you face. That means drilling into the problems you are worried about and getting them into the open and finding ways out from them. That’s what we do for you and have been doing for business clients for over 30 years. We unlock what you need to achieve new perspective, the stuff we all struggle with as we are too close to the picture of our own business to see it properly. That’s the benefit of using a mentor for specific help we offer.
All of our consultants go through our system before qualifying as an Actionista. They generally will study with us, including working with some clients under supervision, for around 6-12 months following induction training before being licenced to practice under the Actionista brand. Everyone we train has a minimum of 10 years professional experience in their discipline and educated to a minimum of post grad level, a number have PhD and other professional qualifications. Each has their own area of expertise and unique skill sets and when you enter our programmes, depending on your needs, you will be paired with the person most able and most experienced to assist you in achieving your goals. We have both male and female consultants and work with a diverse range of clients both in the UK and Internationally. This is serious stuff, but informally delivered, so you have confidence in the steps you need to take to move forward and are comfortable with the process.
How It Works
Our services run normally over 6 months, occasionally longer depending on your choice of outcomes, as all we do is goal orientated we have a clear start and end date in view when we commence the process with you. During the agreed period, depending on your needs, we will meet with you, sometimes this is face to face, we will assist you via email and regular phone/SKYPE/ZOOM calls and, if working with you in your place of work, also meet with you and your team, if required. When working with clients on communication styles it helps to be present in an observational and feedback capacity.
Our team have worked with clients holding senior positions in the NHS, The Court Service, CPS, top 500 law firms, large businesses including Government agencies, consultancies, banks and accountancy firms as well as leading charities. We have also worked with over 3500 small and medium sized business teams, both as non executive directors and one to one consultants. We are well placed to assist you in your journey and our experience in helping clients achieve results is at the heart of what we do. People ask us if its’ coaching, it’s more than that, it’s directed mentoring/consultancy based on options we know will work for you. All we do is covered by our fully comprehensive professional indemnity insurance, only available to consultants with years of proven experience and expertise.
