Mercator specialises in the provision of bespoke coaching services to professional people
There is a well known historical saying – ‘Either find a way or make one’.
We specialise in working with individuals who are aiming to develop their business or organisation – to focus on depth and/or growth. It is not just about the business potential, it is also about your potential within the business. This can also involve dealing with issues around the work/life balance, confidence, inspiration and creativity. It can be an incredibly rewarding and challenging experience, but you can also feel a keen sense of isolation. Lack of support is unfortunately one of the risk factors.
This is not about business consultancy – that will merely provide you with a set of solutions (often out of a box and often very expensive). This is about providing you with a set of tools to develop your own solutions that are fit for purpose for you and for your business/organisation.
The commitment to you is to play a fundamental part in ensuring that you achieve the results you desire – if you are prepared to work hard to change the things you want to change, then it will happen.
Please contact us by email or by phone to discuss any ideas that you may have or clarify any of the services that we offer.
