Sagegreen ConsultingWorking with SMEs
Small & Medium Enterprises
So, you find yourself staring change in the eye.
You might have chosen this path or maybe you’re here because there were no other options. Either way, we can help you make what happens next a success.
We love working with entrepreneurial SMEs – it’s what we are – we’ve been living and breathing that way of life for the last 20 years. With us in your team you benefit not just from our experience but from the clarity we bring (we’re not caught up in the internal politics or history), our honesty and challenge about both the current situation and your ideas cobined with our support – this is likely to be a tough time and it’s important you have someone in your corner.
Whatever is about to happen in your organisation, your team need a clear vision about what life is going to look like, how they’re going to get there and how they’ll know they’ve arrived. For this to be achieved they’ll need to be motivated, energised and yes, actually working together like a team.
How can we help you?
We work with owners, MDs, CEOs and their senior teams to establish that clarity of purpose, determine a workable plan to move from here to there and, when required, be part of the team that puts that plan into place.
It might sound simple but change rarely is. It requires focus, determination and a great deal of effort, you really have to want what’s at the other end of this. We don’t do smoke and mirrors, we’re not swayed by the latest fad and we don’t dress it up. We’ll be honest with you, we’re your partners in this, in moving from idea to action.
When might you need us?
There are lots of scenarios, but they usually look like one of these situations:
1. You’re changing the way your business works
It might be growing, shrinking, struggling to make a profit or maybe you need to restructure your people.
Or perhaps there are problems with processes – things don’t run as smoothly as you know they should, maybe opportunities are being missed or your people aren’t working together in the way you’d like them to.
If any of these sound familiar it’s time to revisit the strategic stuff – Business Planning & Strategic Development if we’re giving it a ‘proper’ name,
2. You are considering a merger or aquisition
If you’re looking at purchasing (or you have purchased) a new business – be it a supplier, competitor or other strategic acquisition there’s a wealth of considerations at every stage.
We’re not your financial advisor; we’re about getting this option into focus, underway and in your control. We’ve been involved in many transactions so we understand the process, the pitfalls you’re likely to face and the potential of this route.

3. You know you need more from your people (and that might include yourself)
You wouldn’t think twice about having a coach to develop to your potential and improve performance if you were a sports professional – the same idea applies to your working world.
Our Executive Coaching is designed around you and your business to achieve specific goals and overcome challenges. It gives focus, clarity, helps decision making and it gets things done. It’s an investment in your people which transforms both them and the wider organisation.
The examples are almost endless and are always shaped by you – perhaps it’s learning to manage difficult interpersonal relationships – a senior colleague or Board member. Another common area is career development, for example, or how to handle the workload and stress that comes with a senior position, maybe you need to prepare your team for new or changing roles. Strategic planning also features up there as you might expect but that’s not it, coaching is a really effective way to work through the issues in your organisation and it builds loyalty, commitment and energy too.
If you’re thinking it sounds like a good idea in principle, but it’s not for you because it’s too expensive, or you don’t have enough time, then why not just start by giving us a call and having a chat?
That won’t take much time from your day and it won’t cost a penny.
