Why self development as a business owner is an absolute must


As business owners, Jason and I have a keen focus on growing our business. In our experience, most business owners will need to focus on growth at some point, whether that’s increasing their sales, adding to their team or developing their processes to be more efficient.

It’s a fact that in order to grow the business, you need to grow the business owner. We are huge advocates of self-development as a starting point in any business owner’s journey and have been lucky enough to work with some great business coaches and mentors over our ten years of Keeping HR Simple to date. We certainly wouldn’t be where we are today without their advice, guidance and sometimes not so gentle prodding in the right direction. We fondly remember being told in the very early days that our marketing advisor really didn’t like our business name (we’d cleverly come up with a different business name to start with) and he thought it was sh*t! Although it was a bit of tough love and left us reeling to start with, the intention was positive and we very quickly realised that a change of name was needed. Keeping HR Simple was born shortly after.

One of the most interesting parts of our roles as HR Consultants isn’t the HR side of things at all! It’s the coaching we do with our clients. Helping a client to develop their own confidence in dealing with their team is extremely rewarding and in fact, it’s something that really motivates us as individuals and as a team. We don’t often shout about the coaching we provide but watch this space as we’ll be launching a coaching model later in the year!

In the meantime, we’re delighted to introduce you to a new mastermind group that’s being set up in Peterborough soon. Ignite Business Masterminds will be providing a supportive environment for business owners to hear inspirational speakers, share ideas and learn from each other. To book on the launch event here
