The Growing Organisations Coaching Programme


A one year business development programme customised to your business, designed to make it grow.

Our focus is on providing practical advice, guidance, and support from specialist coaches.

Take Your Business

To The Next Level

When you join The Growing Organisations Coaching Programme you’ll get access to expert performance consultants and the collective wisdom of like-minded Kiwi business owners facing similar issues to you.

You’ll belong to a supportive and trusted group of business leaders who are helping each other grow their businesses by taking consistent action.

We designed this group coaching programme to help Auckland business owners navigate the ups and downs of the challenging and ever-changing business landscape.

I highly recommend Ross and the team at Growing Organisations. They've helped me make better business decisions that has grown our brand. They give insights and encourage me to focus in on key areas of growth and be intentional about our business' direction and future.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why a 12 month programme?

We have found that building a sustainable, successful business takes time and attention to many different aspects of the business.

This programme is intensive and requires rapid application and produces great results quickly. Even so, at least one year with 12 sessions is normally desirable.

What are the dates and times for the programme?



In person session – Wednesday 14th October from 9.30am-12.30pm in Rosedale (coffee and networking from 9am)
Online session – Wednesday 28th October from 9.30am-10.30am

Full calendar to be released shortly.

How long are the various sessions in the programme?

The monthly group in-person meeting is 3 hours (9.30am-12.30pm) with coffee and networking for 30 mins before and after. This includes a seminar presented by a subject matter expert, an application workshop facilitated by our Coaches, and a regular “informal” board meeting of peers for support and accountability – each section is approximately 1 hour.

Between each in-person meeting there is a one-hour online meeting for review and Q&A with a subject matter expert and our Coaches.

Additional time and energy should be allowed for planning and implementation every month.

Are there any pre-requisites for attending the programme?

The programme is designed for business owners and senior members of their team. Other than that, there are no pre-requisites for joining the programme.

However, in order to get the most out of joining us and to be a good fit in our community, you will identify with these descriptions:

  You have been in business for at least one year.
  You are based in or around the Auckland area.
  You value learning from others’ experiences.
  You’re keen to share your own experiences and lessons learnt.
  You have a vision for your business & welcome help to figure out the details.
  You’re driven and committed to taking consistent action.
  You understand the power of collaboration and support networks.
  You’re willing to be open and honest about your experiences.
  You have a genuine interest in helping others.

is this 1:1 Coaching?

This is a group coaching programme with some individual attention included. 1:1 Business Development Coaching is offered as an optional add-on for a fee and will help with specific application and more speedy implementation of the learning in the programme.

Is this a "Networking Group"?

No, networking is a secondary purpose of this programme. There will be opportunities for you to network and do business with other members, but the primary purpose is learning, planning and implementation to grow the health and profitability of your business.

What are the Seminars and Workshops about?

Subjects for these elements of the programme will cover all of the essential elements of running a successful business in NZ, including:

  • Building a profitable and easy to run business that requires less of your attention.
  • Reaching and attracting the best customers for your business
  • Developing a high-performing team to take care of your customers and your business
  • Becoming a successful, free and financially secure entrepreneur

What are the "Pop-Up Workshops" about?

From time to time, when a particular need emerges, a half-day or one-day workshop or webinar will be offered. These provide opportunities to dig deeper, learn more and apply powerful strategies with more intensity.

What if I can't make it to every session?

We strongly recommend that you attend all sessions. However, if you can’t attend a session, you will be able to access the other elements of the month’s programme, along with the online resources for any missed session.

Can I send a substitute if I can't make a session?

Yes. If it’s not possible for you to attend a session, you may send a staff member or business partner who will take the learning back to your business for implementation. For the integrity of the programme and the value to all members, we ask that you limit substitution to no more than 3 sessions.

How will the programme respond to COVID-19 or other social distancing requirements?

Of course, we will be compliant with Government directives and evaluate other voluntary recommendations. This may mean we should pivot to online meetings from time to time. If so, only the monthly in-person meeting will be affected. All other aspects of the programme are already compliant with Levels 3 and 4.

Can you guarantee results?

No, we can’t sorry. There are many factors in business success. However, with this programme, we have aimed to provide realistic, proven approaches to the most influential success factors. Your own choices and actions have the power to determine the actual results.
