Despite the glut of information on what “leadership” is, there is still an actual shortage of it in action.
Any business owner, any manager, any social activist can tell you where it's missing in their organisation or in society. It shows up in areas like actual results against competitors', or worries like who will take this project/cause/activity/business over when I go/retire? Increasingly we hear managers are reluctant to step up and play a bigger role as a leader as they believe the rewards are not worth extra effort and scrutiny, and/or they lack the knowledge and/or confidence to do it well. This is particularly true for professions operating on the old partnership model (accountants, lawyers, GP doctors).
We help people identify what theIr style of leadership is, how it fits with their situation, and which traits they need to work on and how. Anecdotally we hear from other coaching firms that it's easy to get coaches for middle management and hard to get coaches that can really handle the top strategic leaders of organisations. Redshots coaches and mentors have a range of achievement in work and life with training that provides inspiration, programmes and resources for leaders in organisations and entrepreneurs to get the results they want – fast.

Increasingly not just the hard core competencies such as handling the figures, but emotional intelligence, is a key component of effectiveness in interpersonal settings in work and family settings. Increasingly as clients improve their organisational and career success they want to improve their relationships in all areas, and especially at home.
In modern times the growing consensus was expressed by Rollo May as “...(W)ish will, and decision occur within a nexus of relationships upon which the individual depends not only for his fulfilment but his very existence.”
Leaders are expected to be experts at handling relationships whether it be public sector, multi-national corporate or small or family business. Our experience of many organisations including voluntary work means that we have a range of styles to instruct and coach in based on reality not theory. With tools such as personality types, communication style and communication questionnaires, Redshots helps people become more self-aware of their impact and then design and create the relationships they want

Work is often the biggest use of our time and talents, and the world of work is continues to change rapidly. The age of corporate career for life is drawing to a close, and people may change careers many times in a lifetime. The old ways of applying to publicised vacancies and agencies via well-crafted cvs are resistant though and there is a growing dissatisfaction with employers and the experience of job-hunting.
Companies do not expect people to stay linger than a few years. Individuals often find themselves at the wrong end of enforced changes and reduced income. The ability and need to reinvent oneself every two years is now the reality of millions, not just a lifestyle choice for ageing popstars. We have lived through this seismic shift and have assembled new tactics to identify work that is not only paid but also satisfying, and we can assist by helping individuals get clear about their strengths and weaknesses, focus on where they want to go, and creating an action plan to get there.
We have helped people break through old ways of thinking and behaving so they experience a work that aligns with their values, gives satisfaction and reward, and strengthens their marketability. Truly the best jobs are seldom advertised and knowing how to access this unofficial marketplace is vital to achieve the level of success that the ambitious are driven to do. In most job markets the top 5% of people are at the highest level, and often known to each other. Most people never get a crack at the top roles but are amazed when we show them how to access this hidden level.
The coming of age for the Internet makes it possible to go from the bottom of society to the top economically in a way not seen since the industrial revolution. We have invested tens of thousands in learning how to maximise this opportunity and can show individuals how to make additional income or indeed replace their job.
Health and Well-Being
Health is the new wealth; healthy life- healthy business; prosperity and health; you are more than a physical body; prosper and be in health; well-being and happiness
Rising lifespans and changing attitudes create new opportunities at every age. The cliché is true: “Health is the New Wealth”. To enjoy health requires a plan and action, and willpower is not enough, a system and planned processes always create better results in any sphere of human activity. Television ads used to advertise a product for “Fortifying the over-40s” and the medical advice was not to exercise after 40 as it was too stressful!
Now many people will be delaying retirement by choice or economic expediency, it is vital that correct actions are planned and taken. A coach is one way of making sure that happens. Redshots emphasis on nurturing the self for better living means that clients review and monitor their own progress in key life areas to protect and maximise their energy so that they can live life to the full. In addition to the normal physical measures, Redshots' programmes include encouragement for actions for mental and emotional health under guidance from appropriate health professionals.
