Joe Booth’s summary of 2018 for access2growth

Birthday Cake.png

2019 will be the 25th anniversary for access2growth.
I remember the trepidation I felt starting the company back on 1st January 1994. Could we make it work? Could we make a difference? Would our clients improve their business performance as a result of our support?

Since then so much has happened (over 150 clients – Rolls Royce Aerospace, Carl Zeiss, Denby Pottery to name a few). I will not bore readers with distant memories, however I am proud to say that 8 of our clients have won national awards as a direct result of our support – this I feel is access2growth’s greatest achievement!

I must take this opportunity to thank all past and present employees of access2growth. Special mention goes out to Alison Johnson, who was there from the beginning, getting access2growth off the ground. And Paul Curtis for his tremendous contribution and valued wisdom - we could not have achieved our successes without him.

The core competency of access2growth was to help our clients implement Lean successfully, which we extended by creating “Lean Managers” to change the culture of the organisation. It is a pleasure to say that 25 years later we are still maintaining this!

In 2018 I continued our work with existing clients, whilst my daughter Leanne Shea, progresses in her quest to introduce the Lean philosophy into offices – which is mostly unheard of and sadly neglected.
We also started a fantastic new Management programme within the Care sector, which has been fun and demanding….just the way access2growth likes it!

2019-20 is already looking exciting for access2growth. Keep up to date with us by following our LinkedIn page, using the link below:

 And thank you for your continued support

The importance of professional coaching

At the 1996 Olympics, Great Britain won 1 gold medal and ranked 36th in the ratings table. Investment in these athletes had been minimal and little support was given.

As a result, the government deemed professional coaching to be essential and funded it through the National Lottery.

 

Following this support, Great Britain went on to flourish and their success flowed . . .

2008 Beijing: Great Britain ranked 4th with 19 gold medals and 47 total medals

2012 London: Great Britain ranked 3rd with 29 gold medals and 65 total medals

2016 Rio: Great Britain ranked 2nd with 27 gold medals and 67 total medals

 

Professional coaching is also needed for management . . . imagine the results that can be achieved!

Teaching our Standard Operating Procedure (S.O.P) game today

When lack of consistency is a problem, implement a S.O.P
Variations in quality can then be avoided for all areas of work . . . products, systems, reports, services, etc.

A first-class S.O.P is not just a quality aid - it can be used as a problem solving tool and a control document, to help identify gaps that may exist. In addition, a S.O.P is ideal for training and as a personal development performance monitor.
