One-to-One Business Coaching
We offer many different coaching programs, all designed to help your business grow revenue and profits and while you can always start with a group coaching program, nothing gives you the results that one-to-one coaching does.
One-on-one coaching is the only program in which we will work with you one-to-one for at least 12-months to make all of your goals a reality. There isn’t an area of your business that one-to-one coaching doesn’t touch. From weekly coaching sessions and goal setting sessions to working with you on your new marketing pieces, you will develop new sales strategies and business systems so you can work less and learn all you need to know to make your dreams a reality.
Your monthly investment in one-on-one coaching ensures we will dedicate a minimum of 5 hours a month to work with you on your sales, marketing, team building, business development and every element of the Action Plan you created during your initial Alignment Consultation.
What impact does Business Coaching have on yourself and your business?
We understand that every business is at different levels in their business and you coach will be flexible and support you as and when you need them. Unlike a Business Consultant, your personal coach will do more than just show you what to do; we will be with you when you need us most. As each idea takes shape and as each campaign is put into place we will support you and give you little pointers to keep you on track.
We promise we will also be there when you need someone to talk to, when you’re faced with challenges or, most importantly, when you’re just not sure what to do next.
We take real pride in the results our business coaches get for local business owners. We take time out each January to celebrate all our client’s successes in our annual Client Awards ceremony. Please read through some of the case studies our clients have kindly put together explaining their journey with us.
Aura Gas – Local Boiler Specialists.
Aura Gas have supplied boiler and central heating services to a growing number of people year on year since 2005. Director Gary Robinson credits his company’s continued evolution, and ultimately its increased bottom line, to the experts at ActionCOACH Portsmouth.
Gary admits he was sceptical about working with a business coach at first and says, that as company director, he thought he should be able to “do it alone”. But after an extended period of time spent with the coaches who he now calls friends, he is thankful for the decision he made.
“My mindset used to be that as a business owner it is seen as weak or negative to seek help from a business coach. Now, having experienced coaching first hand I take the view that it’s actually the best way to sound out situations by getting the opinion of experts who are genuinely on your side. I have come to understand that sometimes I have a clouded view of things and it’s necessary for someone else to step in. And now, after developing immensely close relationships with my coaches, I know that each and every time they step in it’s for mine and my business’ benefit.”
Safe in the knowledge of what ActionCOACH Portsmouth has done for him and his business Gary hopes other companies will follow his lead and make the same life-changing decision he did.
Gary said: “I would definitely recommend coaching to a business owner who has not tried it. It’s important to note you need to commit to work on the strategies ActionCOACH offer in order to get the maximum gain from the investment. Aside from an increased bottom line, the greatest thing I have taken from the coaches is proper planning, which has honestly revolutionised Aura Gas. I have a lot to thank ActionCOACH for.”

Harris and Hiscock – Commercial Flooring and Furnishing Contrators.
During 50 years of trade Harris and Hiscock Ltd has established itself as one of the most highly regarded commercial flooring firms in the South of England. However, just as tools and construction techniques have evolved over the decades, so has business. That’s why director Steve Hiscock turned to ActionCOACH Portsmouth. Thanks to weekly one to one coaching from dedicated coaches, Steve has watched the business his father started in 1964 ascend to never-before-seen levels.
“Thanks to ActionCOACH I have the confidence to delegate the non-urgent and less important tasks to others, which gives me more time to develop and drive the business forward. I’m spending less time working in the business and more time working on the business. On a personal level, the reward for the effort put into the business is repaid with greater time for family, who always seemed to suffer in the past because of work related pressures.”
Steve attributes his rejuvenated and refreshed workforce not only to his fresh philosophy but also to his adoption of ActionCOACH’s DISC profiling system, which screens prospective employees. All business owners struggle to identify and select the right candidate, and that’s because it’s an immensely difficult process. Many employers make the wrong decision after interviewing an applicant once, twice or even three times. That’s why ActionCOACH provide their clients with an innovative system to analytically assess their next staff member.
With workers perfectly suited to the company’s needs, Steve has been able to take his foot off the gas by delegating responsibility elsewhere. He says that having employees who he genuinely trusts with the firm’s future has turned both his professional and personal life around.
