Fuel your founders

Our mission is to fuel entrepreneurs to be their best, most effective high-performing selves.

To be an effective entrepreneur – one that can confidently survive a pivot, lead a team, and manage stakeholders – we need to be effective and resilient leaders. Yet, we’re not born like that. It is a personal skill-set that needs to be honed and practised. Big corporate firms have invested in these skills in senior leaders for decades, but in our riskier, JFDI environments it gets forgotten. This doesn’t deliver optimum performance for anyone. That’s what we are here to change.
We partner with accelerators, incubators, VCs and teams that believe in supporting the whole founder for sustainable business growth. With our  Training, Coaching and Profiling tool we help build more resilient and emotionally-intelligent leaders who are armed for the future and ultimately healthier too. If this sounds valuable to you and your cohort let’s chat about what a solution could look like for you.

About Founder Training

Our training is designed to develop self-awareness and leadership skills in an interactive way so that entrepreneurs can get the best out of themselves, and those around them, in order to thrive, not just survive, as founders. We have a whole range of training options, from event talks, to workshops to complete courses.
Our practical, action-oriented training focuses on the complex and often multifaceted soft-skills we need to thrive in a practical positive way:

Motivation & the role of purpose and goal setting;

Productivity and effectiveness in the digitally connected world;

The science behind performance and how to perform under pressure;

Understanding personality types & team understanding;

Unlocking effective communication and Influencing others;

Failure and how we can bounce forward with a positive perspective;

Coaching skills to get the best out of yourself and others.

About Circles

Our action-oriented Circles can be run for your entrepreneurs to fuel their resilience and performance. Circles facilitate problem-solving at pace between a trusted group of founders. Meeting every month in a confidential setting with a coach we focus on learning, decision-making and problem-solving, allowing everyone to rise above the urgent, and focus on the important, whilst honing their skill-set.
1

Curation

Curation is key for the success of a Circle. We work with you to match founders of a similar business stage, in non-competing sectors, with aligned ambitions. That way the Circle grows stronger over time.

2

Coaching

Peer-power comes to life in the monthly Circle sessions. Facilitated by an experienced coach, the group explores a new tool each month, then hones in on goals and problem-solving for each founder.

3

Communication

Momentum is maintained with private Circle Channels. Founders communicate with their trusted Circle of founders via a private online channel so that advice and support is always available.
