Steve isn’t just another strategy consultant. It’s like a discussion of everything he has ever read and learned, tried and tested through practice with an acknowledgement that your business has its own set of intricacies. We learn from our mistakes as much as our successes and Steve is humble enough to admit he has learnt from both. He talks from experience and that’s why I listen with trusting ears.
I have been lucky enough to be involved in both 1 on 1 and group training with Steve Mcleod and can't speak highly enough of his knowledge and passion for helping others. Working with Steve I have learnt specific strategies around growth, people, process and finance, he has given me a thorough understanding and a know how to implement the learnings with instant and measurable results. More importantly, Steve has always followed up and held me accountable ensuring I get the most out of each session. I have no hesitation in recommending Steve and would highly encourage anyone to get involved in his coaching or training.
Since we completed the strategic planning process with Steve, there has been an immediate and noticeable improvement in communication and alignment in our senior team. We have seen action on growth opportunities we just never got around to previously. Steve has a knack of breaking down and reverse engineering success, regardless of the type of business.
I’ve seen Steve McLeod from Courage for Profit in action for over a year now. His business knowledge and delivery of strategy is first class. Steve also has an analytical business mind. From these seminars we approached Steve to work with us in our business Nieuvision. Steve is now conducting our annual strategy day and quarterly strategy days in addition we requested his expertise in assisting us on our advisory board. If you have a strong desire to align you business, grow your business to the next level and make sure you are keeping the business on the right path, I would highly encourage using Courage for Profit.
We have known Steve for many years now and his passion, commitment and drive is second to none. He always goes the extra mile and genuinely cares about the success of our business. Recently we attended a workshop with Steve to discuss growing our business for the purposes of selling for the best price. We walked away feeling very motivated and inspired. The level of professionalism and constructive advice was first class. I would recommend Steve and Courage for Profit to anyone.
Steve McLeod has been an excellent source of constant inspiration, positivity and encouragement. It was thanks to him and the many training sessions of his I’ve attended, that I found the courage to move out of my comfort zone and attempt to explore and conquer unknown territories. As challenging as my journey as an entrepreneur has been; Steve’s training enabled me to cope with constant stress by analyzing my goals; through an objective and prudent assessment of their merits and requisite resources. Today I am adept at keeping my emotions out of my business dealings and setting clearer and more achievable goals for myself and my company.
