Newsletter October 2017

Finishing 2017 with a Bang!

This month is chance to reflect on what needs to be undertaken over the next quarter to finish the calendar year with a bang!  We all have key actions, priorities and projects that we are looking to finalise before we finish before Christmas but this requires us to be focussed, make time for these activities and work with our teams to align and ensure everyone plays their role to deliver on these outcomes.

BRS has a lot to achieve in this next quarter with a focus on setting ourselves up for success in 2018.  We look forward to sharing these exciting new developments with our clients over the coming months including a game changing coaching program, new team members and new projects we are working on.

We hope you enjoy this newsletter!

Importance of having a coach

In our professional lives, it is important that you have people that you can bounce ideas around with, be challenged and also learn and grow from.  This is no different than having a personal trainer, an accountant you rely upon for sound business advice, a lawyer who helps you manage your legal challenges or any other aspect of your life where you draw upon the expertise of specialists that can assist you through challenging times.

At BRS, we all have coaching support for our team members as they continue to learn and grow on their journeys.  Whilst every person in our team has a different coaching requirement, we try to identify a coach who is a leader in their field, such that we can implement their key learnings within our business and all of our people continue to learn and grow. One of the key advantages of a structured coaching program is that they make you accountable for your ideas, plans and actions – which forces you to spend time away from your day to day activities to focus on the next game changing moves and strategies that will continue to set up BRS for success!

In 2018, we will be looking to challenge our clients around the following key question:  Who do you draw upon or tap in to that challenges, supports and holds you accountable to be the best you can be?  What accountability structures do you have around your 90-day plan, personal strategic planning and other key initiatives that allows you to slow down to speed up?  This focus is important if you want to be the best you can be and also bring your best to your team, your organisation and projects.

Stay tuned for more discussions in the coming newsletters around our exciting game changing coaching program in 2018 exclusively for ambitious infrastructure leaders.

“Your audacious life goals are fabulous. We’re proud of you for having them. But it’s possible that those goals are designed to distract you from the thing that’s really frightening you—the shift in daily habits that would mean a re–invention of how you see yourself.”
