Training & Development
Graeme is an accredited Business and Executive Coach.
If considering coaching the question should be asked… “Would hiring a business coach be the right decision for you?”
The hiring of a coach is a highly personal process, and there are numbers of factors to consider. You need to think about your current situation, your own personal goals and objectives, your business’s immediate and most important needs, and whether you’re ready to make the commitment of working with a coach to grow and achieve these.
This is not a decision to be taken lightly and only you can determine whether working with a business coach is the right choice for you and your company. However, after running our own businesses, having had a corporate career and since coaching small business owners and company executives, we believe that there are strong indicators of when an individual is ready to work with and benefit from retaining a business coach.
A business coach will benefit you if:
- You do not feel that you are achieving your goals and objectives.
- Your business isn’t growing as quickly as you would like.
- You’re feeling overwhelmed by too many responsibilities.
- You don’t have a strategy for growing and developing your business or career.
- You’re only focusing on the tasks that need to get done.
- You don’t feel that you are making progress and being “ahead of the game”.
- You feel too immersed in your business and that you need a qualified outsider’s input.
- You can’t find the right balance between work and personal time.
- You want to see dramatic improvements to your business but aren’t sure how to make that happen.
If your answer to any one (or more) of the above is affirmative, there is a very strong chance that working with a business coach is exactly what you need to take your career and business to the next level.

Personal Development Analysis
PDA – Personal Development Analysis
The Reid Business is a PDA Gold Partner and is accredited to use and share the PDA suite of tools.
PDA is a behavioural assessment tool that uses a simple, precise and scientific methodology to discover and analyse peoples’ behavioural profiles. It allows us to uncover the behavioural and competency requirements of a job in order to ensure that the right people are selected and developed for designated positions. The PDA Assessment does not categorise behavioural profiles as “good or bad”; but instead, describes what the evaluated individual’s behavioural characteristics are.
If you would like to know more about this impressive management tool contact us and examine the PDA International website.
