Since establishing our business in 2003 we have grown steadily under the helm of the three Rocke brothers. We managed our growth successfully over this time.
Successful Business Growth, Restructure and Healthy Relationships.
It became apparent that that the company had reached a stage where a complete revision of our structure was necessary and that an outsider would provide us with a fresh perspective. Accordingly, we employed Stephen Hanman who provided a range of services.
First, he reviewed the company’s structure and the roles of key staff.
Second, he observed the relationships within our company and provided advice and assistance in achieving a movement from strained relationships to a healthier environment.
Third, he was a sounding board for ideas, both on an individual basis and during group workshops which he organised.
Fourth, in order to clarify the strategic aims of our company and to re-place staff within the new structure in a way that afforded all parties maximum dignity and respect for their individual skill-sets, Stephen Hanman facilitated discussion amongst various groups that enabled all parties to put issues on the table in a healthy and respectful way and to take ownership of decisions that were eventually made.
The organisational restructure culminated in him designing a new structure that not only addressed our current problems, but also provided a succession plan.
Relationship health in a family company is a particularly difficult process, and Stephen should be particularly commended for the way he handled this.
Strategic aims were confirmed and people were placed into new roles with dignity and respect thus enabling and building engagement and motivation.
Steve’s assistance at this important time in our company’s history ensured that we moved to the next phase of our development smoothly and with the minimum of upheaval. We recommend him highly.
Development based coaching is at the core of what I do, working with a holistic view of the human being who thinks [head], feels [heart] and takes action [hands]. Deploying discretionary effort is core.
High performing teams have high trust levels – developing and nurturing this trust is what I can assist you with. Everybody wins in this environment. It creates an upward spiral of performance.
This book is about a successful, people-centred collaborative approach to business, based on moving the emphasis from ‘me’ to ‘we’. It provides an alternative operating model for organisational life that is both good for people and good for profit.
