CEO Coaching & Mentoring
for Ambitious Entrepreneurs

Our goal is to Coach & Teach you to build a “finished business” - a Commercial, Profitable Enterprise that Works Without You.

Our Growth Programs focus on 2 areas:

  • CEO / Founder Coaching & Mentoring.
  • CEO & Leadership Team Coaching & Mentoring.

To scale your business you must also scale yourself and your leadership team

But the numbers aren’t exactly stacked in your favour…

  • 60% of new businesses fail within their first 3 years
  • Sadly only 3% of businesses will generate >$2M in revenues
  • Only 0.45% will ever exceed $10M in revenues, only 0.15% will generate over $25M, and only 0.08% will generate >$50m
  • 40% of new leaders fail within the first 18 months on the job

We can show you exactly what the successful companies are doing to generate their success and how our clients are able to double revenue and 10X the value of their business, using the same strategies.

I’ve been in your shoes

I understand the pressures of entrepreneurship and leadership.

Over my career, I have led and worked with businesses at every stage of growth – from 10 employees to Fortune 500 companies.

Time after time, the same critical differences separated companies doing $1-20 million in revenue…

Instead of providing vision, clarity, and driving growth for the business, too many CEOs are caught in a never-ending cycle of hiring and firing… bogged down in meetings… while trying to do everything themselves – I call it the DIY approach – and in most cases the Founder will hit the ceiling and not break through.

But here’s the secret I learned many years ago – you don’t have to overcome these odds on your own.

Luckily, there’s a little-known key to break through this cycle… A simple yet powerful tool to finally start moving the money needle…

And with the right support and accountability, you can reach the next level in both your business and life.

Do you know that results from a survey by Gravitas Impact of 128 CEOs found that those who used an experienced executive coach achieved measurable, positive outcomes in 5 key areas:

  • CEO confidence
  • CEO productivity
  • Bottom-line profit growth
  • Employee engagement
  • Top-line revenue growth

Coaching more than quadrupled the number of companies with revenue in high growth mode…

Now I’m on a mission to coach CEOs, Founders and Entrepreneurs to help them scale their businesses and reach their full potential.

Here’s How I Do It

Most business or CEO Coaching focuses only on scaling the business. I do things differently and help you scale three pillars in parallel. You, your leadership, and the business. You must optimise all three pillars to reach your full potential.

In my own journey, I recognised it was one thing to start a company as a founder, and another to scale one as a CEO. During our work together I share the secrets to you becoming a stronger, more decisive, inspiring, and reliable leader.

I train and coach you and your leaders to 10X your effectiveness. We also take a holistic approach, so that you’re not just winning on the work front, but also on the health and home fronts.

And I help you scale your business drawing on whichever experience is most relevant from the 6 pillars of our Scale Up Growth Framework.

Now I’m on a mission to coach CEOs, Founders and Entrepreneurs to help them scale their businesses and reach their full potential.

So what does a Coach actually do?

Whether you need help growing your company, strategic planning, raising capital or navigating a challenging economic landscape, we leverage the most effective tools and evidence-based best practices to help you achieve results.

If you’ve gotten as far as you can on your own, we can help you uncover any limitations that are holding you back and help you take your business to the next level.

All too many entrepreneurs chase too many “shiny objects”. Yet, when studying people enjoying greater success than most others, it’s clear they are focused.

Devil’s Advocate
Providing you with a peer-to-peer sounding board. We act as your co-architect in the creation of a scalable action plan designed to accelerate your success ASAP. Possibly the 2 greatest questions of all time: “WHY?” and “WHAT ELSE?”. Be prepared for your Coach to ask them repeatedly.

A confidential sounding board for the CEO – so that CEO can bounce ideas off of them, share their feelings with them, and trust them in a confidential nature. We ask the right questions to draw the CEO out.

Third Party Sounding Board
The Coach brings an outsider’s fresh set of eyes for the CEO to bounce off ideas. They act as a resource who has a vested interest in the company without a vested interest in “keeping his/her job.” The Coach is someone who has “been there, done that.”

Accountability Partner
With our experience building companies into fast-growing and profitable firms, we know how to hold people accountable and how important this is. Simply put, it makes a difference!

Proven Learning Content, Framework and Tools
We teach and coach our 10X Business Growth Blueprint, which comprises 6 Pillars:

  1. Strategy & Planning
  2. Team & Culture
  3. Execution & Operations
  4. Marketing & Sales
  5. Cash, Profit and Finance
  6. 10X CEO & Leadership Effectiveness

Do I or my company need a Mentor/Coach/Growth Advisor?

“Everybody Needs a Coach.”
– Eric Schmidt, Chairman of Alphabet and former CEO of Google.

“Great coaches lie awake at night thinking about how to make you better. They relish creating an environment where you get more out of yourself. Coaches are like great artists getting the stroke exactly right on a painting. They are painting relationships. Most people don’t spend a lot of time thinking about how they are going to make someone else better. But that’s what coaches do.”
Ronnie Lott describing Bill Campbell, Coach to Apple and Google leadership teams, amongst many others.

What Our CEO Clients Have To Say

Jonathan is a regular guest speaker and panel moderator at our E-Lead events, delivering powerful insights on leadership and purpose. Jonathan shares his inspirational story in highly interactive and insightful workshops where his knowledge and guidance open fresh and valuable perspectives for all participants.

As part of Scale Up Growth Partners monthly Mastermind group, I have experienced first-hand the implementation of Jonathan’s proven framework and disciplines from his years of practical expertise. He is what I would call a master in his field and would recommend Jonathan to entrepreneurial business leaders and their executive teams who want to successfully scale their business and accelerate growth.

Shahid Majeed

CEO, E-LEAD Global

I joined Jonathan’s mastermind in 2022. Jonathan is a lifelong student of entrepreneurial success, Jonathan is a master communicator and can succinctly explain the scale up concepts. I had many ‘Aha’ moments. More, as a founder and CEO I always have more questions than answers. The complexities in managing up, down, sideways, internally, externally is a constant challenge. Straight talk from Jonathan was gold when I needed someone to get me out of my own head.

Working with Jonathan means I now make better decisions which in my role is critical and my ultimate value to the business.

Thank you Jonathan. I’m very grateful for your contribution to me and my leadership team over the past few years.

I am pleased to say that becoming certified as a great place to work in all 5 countries we operate in APAC – Australia, NZ, China, HK & Singapore has been well and truly achieved as we reached that in less than half the time frame.
