Business Leaders Coaching - CONE Teams

Do you want to accelerate your success and reduce your sense of isolation?

NEW: Virtual CONE Boards for Coaches and Consultants, CONE for Coaches
Coming SOON: Virtual CONE Boards for Women Business Owners - www.womenbuildbusiness.com including leadership training (certificated ILM Development Programme), facilitated CONE team sessions, 1:1 coaching and personal online self coaching account.


Co-operative, non-executive (CONE) Teams are master-mind groups for Owners, Directors, CEOs and entrepreneurs who want to significantly improve the success of their business or company and who recognise that they, more than technology, sales or marketing, are the driving force for success.

    The CONE Team ethos:
  • Good leadership is the most important factor for business success.
  • Good leadership is authentic and values-based.
  • Good leadership delivers results in a way that inspires your people and team to be motivated and engaged to deliver their best.
  • Good leadership creates a clear vision for the future that people can buy into and know how they personally contribute to delivering it.
  • Good leadership creates a positive organisational culture that promotes high performance.

CONE Teams for success -  logo

Leading a business or company and being an entrepreneur can be very isolating. CONE Teams offer you the opportunity to:

  • further develop your own leadership capability and shape the direction of your organisation.
  • build relationships with your peers in a dynamic, supportive and confidential environment, facilitated by a qualified coach.
  • have a sounding board to examine issues and develop solutions with like-minded entrepreneurs who support and encourage each other.
  • gain from the different perspectives each individual brings to the table, in both a professional and personal capacity.
  • benefit from the inspiration, creativity and innovation generated within the group.

The Format:

A monthly four hour workshop for a minimum of 6 months, so members can develop mutual trust and respect for open discussion and you have time to experience the benefits of coaching. We emphasise that CONE Team members are working on their business to improve performance. Meetings are scheduled in work hours so they don't erode into other areas of your life, which will ultimately erode your performance. Aeona's coach facilitates the session and provides interim coaching support between meetings.

Each month we focus on an aspect of leadership for the business. Examples include
- Strategy: Direction, Purpose and Vision;
- Operations: Planning, projects, evaluating, alignment, implementation, etc.,
- Commitment to delivering results,
- Recognising the needs of individuals and teams,
- High performance leadership behaviours, and
- Personal leadership: awareness, emotional intelligence, relationships, attitude, values, beliefs etc.

CONE Teams for success, improved performance & profits, motivation & inspiration, innovation & creativity, clearer strategy values and goals, and a better work-life balance
