Getting the basics right

The world’s top performing organisations prioritise employee engagement* above all else. They have learned that people who are engaged in what the business is trying to do will go the extra mile every day to help achieve success.

We specialise in helping business leaders and managers to get the most from themselves and their people and, by focusing in on the right things, to achieve success in business more quickly and efficiently.

Specifically we can help you to:

  • Put together a simple and effective business strategy
  • Make and execute a plan for success
  • Help your managers and people to be the best that they can be

Developing Strategy

As business leaders, sometimes we just need to press the red button, to stop what we are doing and take stock, making sure we are still heading in the right direction and taking the path that suits us best.

Red Button Associates can bring a fresh perspective. We ask all the questions you might have stopped thinking about in the busyness of the day to day. We will challenge you to consider different things, helping you to refresh your business strategy and ways of working.

We know that the devil is very often in the detail and so we will guide you through all the necessary considerations to make sure your plan is complete.

We can make sure your strategy has focus, clarity and markers along the way to help you stay on track and chart your progress, identifying the things that work well and less well along the way. We can help you to build on those things that work best for you – your natural strengths – to really accelerate your success.

Our speciality is in helping you to place focus on the things that you do best to build your business and in helping you to fully engage your people in creating and executing plans for success.

Improving leadership and engaging employees

These days we are accustomed to ‘pressing the red button’ to access more – to see what’s going on behind the scenes, to review and replay highlights and mistakes and to learn more about the background, characters and personalities in a programme or event.

In a similar way, Red Button Associates can you help to access more from your business – to achieve lasting success more quickly by helping you, your managers and all of your employees to be the best that they can be in work.

We will help you to get a better understanding of what’s going on day to day, what’s working well and less well, in relation to the business results you are after. As an impartial and critical friend, we can find out what your people really know and understand about the plan, how they think and feel about the business, what they love about it and what they think could change to make things even better.

We can also help you to understand more about what your customers value and might like to see change.

We can help you to use this information to improve communication and employee engagement – the keys to success in any business.

We can help your leaders and people managers to understand more about what they do well and what needs to be in place for them to do their best work.  We help them to use this knowledge to perform at their best more often and to shape the ways that they engage, manage and develop the rest of the workforce.
