Who Do We Work With?
We work with business people who are passionate about what they do and want to accelerate their business growth. These people generally fall into three main categories:
1. Their business is already be doing very well and ready to accelerate to the next level. They want help to develop the clarity to identify the critical actions and the leadership qualities to congruently lead their team to play a much larger game.
2. They are facing some major business (or personal) challenges and they want help to overcome these in order to move their business forward to where they really would like it to be.
3. Their business is doing well financially, but it has ceased being fun to work there and they would like help in reigniting their passion and bringing back the magic for both themselves and their team.
These people might be:
- Family business owners or directors
- Senior executives or mid-level managers in small, medium and large corporations.
- “Subject matter experts” who want to turn their experience, knowledge and passion about their specialist areas of expertise into profit.
- Life coaches and mentors who want to better help their clients live more fulfilled lives and, at the same time, build a successful business that pays them handsomely for doing what they love.
The one thing that all of the people we work with have in common is that they are passionate about what they do, they want to do it better, they want to have fun doing it, they want to make a change in the world and they want to have sufficient money to live the life of their dreams.
“There are only three measurements that tell you nearly everything you need to know about your organization’s overall performance: employee engagement, customer satisfaction, and cash flow. It goes without saying that no company, small or large, can win over the long run without energized employees who believe in the mission and understand how to achieve it.” – Jack Welch, former CEO of GE
What We Do For Our Clients?
Our work with all of our clients is focused on assuring that we always bring real personal and business benefits. The following sections describe just how we do this.
The most immediate benefit of working with JOI is helping you discover what has been holding you back from achieving what you really want with your company.
Overcoming these challenges, whether personal or business, as quickly as possible, so that you can free up your energy, get you back into your flow and finally get the results you want.
Working in your passion is essential if you are really going to enjoy working in your business. However, working in a business that is not generating enough money to enable you to live a good life will very definitely sap all of your passion.
This is why so much of what we do when working with you is aimed at helping you generate healthy revenues in your business from day one.
We help you increase team engagement to close the gap between the vision of the CEO and Executive and its implementation. If your team is engaged with your vision, then your revenues will increase.
Healthy revenues can be quickly eroded by high business costs. Controlling costs might not always seem like fun, however, unless a business can do so, it will find itself running out of money and taking all the joy out of life for all who work there.
This is why the JOI approach helps you find simple, yet highly effective, ways to control your costs in order to enable your business to maximise its profits to enable you to live the life you deserve. If you can’t do this, what is the point of being in business?
Bringing Back The Magic
We believe that business should be fun. One thing we know for sure is that every time business starts feeling like hard work and stops being fun it means that we are either doing the wrong things or doing things in the wrong way.
When you work with us you can be sure that we will teach you ways of ensuring that you avoid falling into this trap and so keep the fun in your business for you and your team.
We also look at how your leadership style can get your whole team working in their flow, bringing about increased productivity and revenue, reducing costs and creating a happy and fully engaged workforce.
Important Note! Having fun is not just for fun!!! Businesses that are fun places to work are also highly creative, highly effective and highly profitable.
“When people are financially invested, they want a return. When people are emotionally invested, they want to contribute.” – Simon Sinek
How Do We Do It?
We Remove Complexity and Bring Clarity.
With decades of experience working with business of all types and sizes on both sides of the Globe we know that there is no such thing as a complicated business – only businesses that are run in complicated ways!
We help you get crystal clear on where your business is and on where you want it to be. We then help you develop a strategy for how to close the gap between where you are and where you want to go.
Once we remove the complexity and bring clarity to your business it will once again be an enjoyable and fun place to work.
We Bring Streamlined Structures.
Small and medium businesses are, ironically, often more complicated in structure than many multinational corporations. To most small business owners the term ‘structure’ implies bureaucracy – not so! It’s true that bad structure is bureaucratic.
But NO structure at all is merely profit swallowing chaos.
We have an amazing track record of bringing really streamlined and innovative structures to businesses we work with. These new highly effective structures are designed to increase revenue and reduce costs thus generating larger profits, so that your business can fund your dream life style.
We Bring New Thinking and Skills.
Even when you are really good at what you are doing, the only way to continue improving is to constantly look for new ideas, new thinking and new ways of doing things.
At JOI we are continually doing this.
When you work with us you will get far more than just our ideas, skills and techniques, you also get the cutting edge thinking of the coaches and mentors that we ourselves use, all of whom run multi-million dollar businesses.
As one of our mentoring clients we share all of this amazing knowledge with you so that you can start using and benefiting from it in your business.
Building Your Dream Team
In our decades of experience one thing we know for sure is that no enterprise can prosper without the right team.
Because of this we have made it a priority to add to our services the ability to help you choose and develop your dream team. The term ‘dream team’ is not just a fuzzy sales term.
It is vitally important to have the right person in the right position so that they work in their flow, which results in them being highly motivated in doing a job that they love and enjoy.
We have seen far too many businesses find out to their cost that, if you do not have the dream team, the results for your business will be a nightmare!
“Everyone enjoys doing the kind of work for which he is best suited.” – Napoleon Hill
Why Do We Do it?
All of things listed above are more than merely ‘nice to haves’. Each of them is designed to remove complexity, bring clarity, remove challenges, increase profits, reduce costs and enable your business to provide you with the money to live the life of your dreams.
We very strongly believe that you should ‘do what you love and love what you do and get handsomely paid for doing it’.
“The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” – Steve Jobs
We know that it is important you feel 100% confident we can deliver on our promises before you start working with us. For this reason we take the following three-stage approach:
Read Our Testimonials
Before you start working with us, we invite you to read our testimonials and see what our clients say about us. You can find them here.
FREE Exploratory Skype Call
The very first thing we do is arrange a free 30 minute online exploratory session with you in order for us to answer the following questions:
Would we like working with you and would you like working with us?
We firmly believe that our time working together should be as productive and enjoyable as possible for both parties. So, if for whatever reason, either of us finds that there is no resonance or connection between us during this exploratory online session, then we simply say so and amicably end the call.
What are your core values both personally and professionally and do they align with ours?
Our experience has shown that in order for us to fully help our clients achieve their vision, our core values need to align with theirs. For example, if a client has core values that say it is OK to do all of their manufacturing in sweat shops in a Third World country, then we would be unable to work with them as this does not align in any way with our core values.
What is your vision for your business and your life?
In order for us to know if we can help you, we need to know your vision for your business and life; where you want to go; what you want to achieve and in what timescale?
How can we best help you bring your vision into being?
Once we know your vision, we can then select our most appropriate mentoring package that will enable us to start bringing your vision into being; to help you turn your passion into profit and begin living the life of your dreams.
Risk Free Cancellation
All mentoring packages can be cancelled during the very first mentoring session.
If, at any time during the first 30 minutes of our first mentoring session, either of us feels that we are not suited to work together, then we will stop the session and JOI will cancel your package and refund in full the first three month’s deposit that you have paid.
If the session goes beyond the first 30 minutes, then the package must run for the initial 3 months, at which point you can terminate it if you feel that it is not delivering what you want. This very rarely happens.
