It can be difficult to implement new strategies, ideas, ways of working or systems and processes. We work in partnership with our clients using our extensive experience and expertise to actively manage your people and process sides of change to deliver significant business improvements.

Extraordinary times demand extraordinary leadership. The one unchangeable certainty is that nothing is certain or unchangeable. Looking for clues from the past on how to navigate this new norm is proving useless and “off the shelf” solutions simply no longer prepare organisations for what lies ahead.

In the traditional world a good product coupled with a good management team was sufficient to ensure success. However, in today’s ever changing and uncertain market place they are no longer enough on their own. If ever there was a time for leadership to set the vision, instill confidence and growth it is now.

Our Executive Coaching is focused on unlocking a person’s potential

to maximise their own performance. ‘Your success is our success’.

Financial wellbeing with Towry

Clarity, peace of mind, security, assistance – these are all the by-products of effective financial wellbeing. Financial wellbeing within the remuneration and reward strategy for many firms is still in its infancy. However, there are signs that this is now being recognised as not just a ‘nice to have’ but a business critical issue. By introducing this as an element to their reward, it will bring a more rounded approach to the total remuneration rather than a pointed focus on income.

The directors and senior executives within businesses are the leaders and drivers of the company. They will be well versed on the company’s strategic objectives over the short and long term; risks will be known and managed, where possible. These individuals will be financially astute, yet the reality when it comes to their own affairs is a different story. Lack of time, desire or expertise leads to disorganised and often inappropriate arrangements that could impact not only upon the individual but the business itself.

Effective financial wellbeing provides individuals with context to their financial affairs , an understanding as to what is important within their lives and clear guidance on the steps they need to take personally to achieve their objectives.
