We help IT Providers to successfully deliver and sustainably grow.
Our objective is to help owners of established small to medium sized, IT Providers / MSP’s mature and sustainably grow their businesses.
Are you the owner or manager of an IT Service company?
If you are the owner or manager of an IT Service Provider and are focused on growing your business, then we would love to speak with you.
In our experience, and all too often, a Leadership Team doesn’t function as a Team.
Within IT Providers, we typically find that each board member manages their own divisions and functions and that the team assembles every so often for board meetings and strategic away days. But are they really an inclusive team?
It’s only when they start to take each other’s trust into their hands that you can truly say they are a team. And this is when you’ll start seeing fantastic business results.
At The Geek Coach, the most productive relationships we have are with business owners who are serious about developing their IT Services Company. Who want to create something much greater than just themselves. We focus on designing programmes for IT Providers that align the owners’ individual goals with the organisational commercial goals.
“Business coaching is attracting top CEOs globally because, put simply, business coaching works. In fact, when asked for a conservative estimate of monetary payoff from the coaching they received, managers described an average return of more than $100,000, or about six times what the coaching had cost their companies.” FORTUNE Magazine
Describing your team
If one or more of these statements describes your team…
- A team that’s experiencing dysfunction (i.e. in-fighting, blame, low levels of accountability)
- A team motivated by the desire to be a great team
- A new team that has been formed through a new venture, organisational merger or acquisition
- A team that is being challenged to improve it’s results
- A newly created team, following a restructure
- A team that has a number of new members join
- A team experiencing high levels of external challenge
… then you can be confident that you will benefit from our tailored services.
Most people are not born leaders, so for most of us, becoming an outstanding leader entails learning and time. In addition to developing practical skills, leaders must have great character. They must develop their skills in Emotional Intelligence, human behaviour, visioning, positively influencing workplace culture, communication, networking, facilitation, modelling and mentoring, to name just a few.
Our training programmes
Our Leadership Team Coaching programmes typically run between 6 and 12 months and consist of the following elements:

Our Executive 1-to-1 Coaching programme is for current Execs and high potential future leaders. This programme typically runs for 12 weeks and includes a full 1-day workshop.
This programme is entirely flexible and is adapted to the individual.
The Manager As Coach programme is for Senior and Junior Managers, typically running for 6 months. This programme includes a 2-day workshop.
It is designed specifically to give managers that have responsibility for others, the tools and coaching frameworks that they need.
This programme will enable them to flex their leadership style to deliver ‘on the job’ and ‘in the moment’ coaching within their management area, to be able to conduct 1-to-1 coaching sessions for further developing direct reports and to increase employee engagement and lower attrition.
All of our coaching programmes are flexible as no two people or businesses are the same, however the above provides an understanding of what is typically involved.
And if you are a small IT Service Provider, we have a programme designed especially for you that can assist with growing your maturity to be able to onboard larger contracts, while fully satisfying your customers’ requirements.
