The Coaching Circle is a monthly meeting of like-minded business owners who come together to share problems, issues and ideas relating to their business in a confidential environment.
The idea originated from Paul Green, a local businessman and advisor to small business owners since 2003. He is an author, has featured as a guest blogger and writer in magazines and recently became a Sage Business Expert. As well as being accredited by the Institute for Independent Business, since August 2012 he has successfully grown NN coNNect to be Northants’ No.1 Business Network; a community of local businesses where the emphasis is on business growth.
Having grown up in a family that was associated with a failed business, Paul realises the impact that this can have on the person running the business and family members – it’s not a nice place to be. Experiencing this first hand provides Paul with the passion, drive and motivation to work with family run businesses to have them be more wealthy, healthy and not having to worry about the future of the business.
He does this through providing hands on, practical advice, mentoring and coaching based on his experience over the years; bringing in other reputable business advisors where necessary; realising that he is not an expert at every aspect of business.
So that’s all about the Coaching Circle and me – what about you?
