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.

Steve is an amazing mentor! He was incredibly generous when I was going through some major business challenges with the buyout of a business partner, subsequent growth and eventually the sale of the business. Steve helped me identify the top key areas to focus which have had dramatic effects on the bottom line. One change implemented after a session with Steve resulted in a 15% increase in gross profit. I cannot recommend Steve more highly and hope to use his services in future businesses.
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 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.
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.
The very first day Steve ran a strategy session for the company he helped us achieve more alignment amongst our management team than we have ever had before. He helped us implement systems for accountability and focus that enabled us to have our most profitable quarter ever and to improve sustainability within the company. Steve is able to ask the tough questions and get straight to dealing with core issues.
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.
