Just imagine how dramatically different your life would be if you were free from the tactical running of your business. What amazing change would take place if your team delivered serious results, with minimum input from you? I believe that great leaders do not create followers – they create leaders. They create powerful teams that feel inspired and supported to achieve their full potential. But you have to learn the right tools and techniques to achieve this.

We must identify the power and influence of the self, before moving on to explore how we can ignite and expand the potential of others, and design the environments where your people and business can excel. By establishing a coaching culture throughout your business, the true potential within your people is liberated; they are encouraged to be all they can be, living and working at their personal best, with optimum peace of mind.

Andrew Wallas is one of the most compelling business gurus in the country. He is a highly successful businessman and an intuitive corporate leader.

He has developed a new form of business alchemy that unearths and diagnoses blocks. As a result, the business’ energy flow is released, and the strategic direction will flow in accordance with desired goals, outcomes and profitability.

Instead of focussing on the outer machinations of your business, Andrew Wallas’ approach explores the hidden internal dynamics, which allows natural growth and success. Once the energy blocks are dealt with in the organisation, leaders and their people will stop inhibiting the energy flow and start moving the organisation forward.
