‘Life coaching with Paul Stalker has been a personal revelation. The focus on ‘what is really important to me’, has improved my performance in business and my balance between work and home.’
After working with The Extra Mile Partnership for a couple of years we asked them to carry out a diagnostic on our business which they duly did. We then hired them on a long-term agreement to help us restructure Burgess Marine. Following our restructure and support from The Extra Mile Partnership, we sold 40% of our equity for 11 million as a service business versus the 5.5 million we would have received as a ship repairer.
‘Wherever Paul has been engaged the results have been startling – perhaps his greatest success has been in leading the roll out of TalkTalk in a group of our worst performing 100 stores, within 2 months of intensive work with Paul and his team sales of TalkTalk more than doubled while sales of other products also improved and, more importantly, these gains in productivity have proven to be firmly embedded.’
‘What I was really looking from The Extra Mile was how could we really lift the morale, how we could reenergise people and really get some passion inside of them and get them excited about working for Debenhams again, and I would recommend the Extra Mile Partnership absolutely to businesses out there who are looking for a need to reenergise their team, to get people really focused and have drive, energy and commitment and a bit of passion back into themselves again.’
‘I would recommend the Mastermind Group to other business leaders. Even though you think you haven’t got time, its time out of your day, it is a great way to think about the problems that affect your business, how they can be resolved, to talk with your peers, and to realise that other people are having the same issues and Stalkie is great at drilling into the nitty gritty, what is actually the root of the problem and then coming up with solutions to resolve that.’
‘He (Paul Stalker) has blown a breath of fresh air through the company introducing an awful lot of new systems and reinvigorating everybody in the business. We’ve now become far more focussed at achieving the goals that we’re looking to achieve longer term.
We’re already starting to see results from his involvement.’
‘Any latent creative talents have been exposed, challenged, processed and put into practice with outstanding innovation and increased sales. If this is the way we are moving our business forward then congratulations to Nigel Moore for having the courage and faith in his team to take his division to another dimension.’
‘As businesses grow some employees are inclined to lose touch with the people who really make things happen. This is an ongoing problem that one needs to return to on an ongoing basis. Paul Stalker’s undoubted enthusiasm can help the Directors of a company to pull together those colleagues in the front line and understand how to ignite their potential, motivating them to achieve far more than they could ever have anticipated.’
