About

Does your business feel personal to you?

 

Are you dependent on it for your livelihood and pension pot?

 

Are you prepared for any changes that your business needs to make?

 

I’m Nicola, The People Mentor.

I work with small and medium-sized businesses to help make policy implementation simple, processes more effective and people more energised.  As a result business performance improves.

I make running your business feel easier, and help you create a place where people want to come to work,  and do their best every day.

 

I’ve been through 30 years of managing and leading teams. I understand the daily dilemma’s and know how life can get in the way for both you and your employees.

Change can feel like a huge mountain to climb, I can help take your business and your people through it so it feels like a guided walk, not Mount Everest.

I’ve seen how things have changed over the years and the speed of innovation.  I’ve seen the disruption of technology and the complications that come each time the Government or the EU lays down a new set of rules.  Which could all be about to change again!

I completely get how it’s becoming harder to keep up with the pace and uncertainty of change.

If we want our businesses not just to survive, but to grow, we can’t afford to take our eye off the ball, stay the same, and not look for ways to be even better.

— working with you and your team we find ways your business can be even better

You know that taking a step back to look objectively at your business could make running it easier, smoother, and more effective. It should be a priority but it keeps dropping down your massive “to do“  list.

It’s all well and good “knowing” this stuff, but it can be really tough to get it working in action, without support.

When you’re close to every process and every person in the business it’s not that easy to take an objective look at how things are working and how energised your team are feeling.

— This is what I’m skilled at doing

If you’ve noticed you’ve spent more time fire-fighting lately – which can be really draining – whether because of policy,  processes or people problems – it’s time to give yourself permission to take a look at the business through new eyes and get some support.

— Resolving conflict, handling difficult conversations, aligning people, policy and processes, and energising teams are all things I support small businesses with for more success.

I can take some of that weight off your shoulders. 

I understand how easy it is to get sucked into long hours.  I’ve been there and found my way out.  I can get you to the pivoting point that makes the difference.

By choosing me you will know you are getting someone who has lots of experience and people understanding, as well as the qualifications to back it up. I work with you and your team in a harmonious way, to make improvements feel easy.
