I am experienced in running business growth seminars for CEO’s, business owners and senior executives. These programs can be run as a complete business growth seminar program over 5 days, or they can be run as stand-alone sessions of 2 hours, 4 hours or a full day with topics based on the audience’s needs.

The complete business growth seminar program that I teach in full is 5 days. The 5 day course is a very intensive course that runs for 50 hours (10 hour days).
I break the 5 day full program into the following 5 core topics (each of which takes 1 day in total):
How do I recruit retain and lead the best people, what are our company core values, employee feedback, performance vs. core values employee analysis, performance related discussions and key metrics.

Business finance basics, cashflow measurement and improvement, labour productivity, Profitability analysis and improvement.
Unique Selling Proposition, landing strategic customers, obtaining customer feedback.
How do I ensure that our business is aligned and on the same page, focussed on the things that matter, and structured for continual improvement.
Below is a general list of management training topics that I have taught to various groups of managers and business owners which will be highly tailored for the particular audience:

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.
Steve is the greatest business coach I have encountered, and an absolute inspiration. I was fortunate enough to learn from him over 18 months. He's direct, courageous and an absolute master at his craft. My experience during the program, as well as 1:1 with him has been a complete game changer to scale my business.
Steve recently ran a Strategy Day for our leadership team. I cannot think of a better person to have helped our leadership team establish goals, actions, accountabilities and most importantly achieved alignment. Importantly Steve ensured that we implemented our actions following the Strategy Day so it was not just another bottom draw planning document as so many other companies do. With his enthusiasm and firsthand experience as a CEO of a high growth business to share, I would highly recommend Steve if you want to rapidly grow your business.
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.
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.
You feel the hunger and drive the second you meet Steve and its infectious. There is no B.S and he cuts deep into the very fabric of why I am in business. To be at the top of your game you have to go through some testing times, and Steve has come out the other side, providing a spring board of learning and experience to catapult businesses to excel.
