A problem shared, is a problem halved…
Mel Archbould of Cloud-Busting has been a Managing Director for over 17 years. She often wished she had someone she could talk to who:
a/ could relate to being in a similar position
b/ wasn’t in the family
c/ wasn’t in the business
d/ wasn’t linked with stakeholders such as finance, accountants etc.
Someone independent, experienced in the issues Mel was facing, and would help her develop solutions, build confidence, and ensure she was being the best leader for the business and its stakeholders.
The lack of an active chairperson or advisory board in a SMALL or MEDIUM-sized business results in the MD or CEO having very few places to turn to discuss strategy or to process issues. Successful Scale-Up businesses can reproduce the benefits of an objective, experienced chair by bringing in Mel Archbould, of Cloud-Busting.
Offering a confidential MD 1-2-1 Sounding-Board service to busy Managing Directors, who do not yet have this framework in place, but would benefit from an independent, outside-in perspective. Mel’s communication style is very open, honest, straight-talking and empathetic. Long before Cloud-Busting was born, Mel has coached and mentored other business owners from micro, small and medium-sized companies providing a safe space for discussion, bouncing around ideas, developing tactics and strategy which contributed to new businesses being created, new markets opened, and often simply boosting morale and confidence to keep focused and on-track with the direction of the business.
Mel creates an environment which encourages the MD to climb into the helicopter, fly above the clouds and re-engage with the bigger picture vision. When the MD reaches Blue-Sky Thinking, the panoramic view is crystal clear and the journey ahead looks achievable. Zooming back down into the business, the business leader understands how better to resolve tackling some of those clouds that are starting to form, re-energised with a good boost of positivity.
