Coaching Forward

Why choose COACHING FORWARD?

You’ve started a socially responsible business.  You have those high days when you smash that all important meeting meeting and then some low days when you realise that you are the person in charge – you are it, and everything/everyone is reliant on you to make it all work.  But, hang on a minute, who is looking out for you…?

You are the most important asset your business has.  A coach can help you develop by giving you protected time to clarify your thinking, raise awareness of how you are doing, and help you uncover ways to make your life and your work into what you want them to be.  But when you’re just getting started, you don’t always have the time nor the resources to invest in yourself.

COACHING FORWARD is FREE coaching support up front when you need it.

You will be able to access 12 hours of coaching support for FREE when you need it.  In return, when your business is thriving, you commit to paying an amount between £360 – £1,000 into the Oasis Foundation – a self-sustaining system that ensures future business founders like you have access to the same coaching support when they’re starting out too.

What is a social enterprise or a socially responsible business?

The world is changing rapidly, with a rising awareness of social responsibility – the need to have some responsibility for the world around us, OUR world, and people who run a social enterprise/socially responsible business work with a moral mindset.  Social enterprise or socially responsible entrepreneurs have chosen to adopt business models that put positive social impact at the heart of their activities.

To keep things simple, for the purposes of this application, we will use the term “business” to include both “social enterprise” and “socially responsible” organisations.

What does a Pay it Forward approach mean and how does COACHING FORWARD work?

Pay it Forward means that you give something back in the future, as part of your ongoing socially responsible mindset.  You will be able to access 12 hours of coaching support for FREE when you need it.  In return, when your business is thriving, you commit to paying an amount between £360 – £1,000 into the Oasis Foundation. Your money will be ring-fenced and used to support future social enterprise/socially responsible entrepreneurs. We recognise that once launched, some businesses do not thrive and unfortunately have to fold.  Pay it Forward is therefore not a contractual obligation.
