Phil Drinkwater is a business and transformation coach who works with ambitious professionals to provide strategy and execution for maximum performance.
Whether you are looking to begin or tweak your existing mindset, I can help you grow.
We all need a boost, or do be inspired to change, and that can be hard while you’re in your own environment, because your pattern is the same. You wake at the same time, follow the same routine and nothing changes.
So let’s get you out of your routine and try something new!
On a coaching retreat you’ll have the opportunity to become a new version of yourself, with new plans, new drive and a new and exciting set of business plans.
I’ve been a successful entrepreneur who has built an online business that’s made £15 million in sales and is still growing today. That success is down to hard work and clear decisions, and I’m extremely grateful.
However, I didn’t have the opportunity to find a more effective path on a business retreat. Taking myself away from my current life would shift me out of my detail oriented mindset onto a quicker growth path.
It could seem like just another event that promises much but delivers little, but a business coaching retreat will offer entrepreneurs and small business owners the opportunity to see the right steps to take in order to generate business success.
My retreats are small group experiences, designed to address and uncover the roots of your challenges. We’ll identify your strengths and weaknesses in order to establish a clear direction for you to work on in the future.
You’ll have time for one-on-ones with the coach and the other participants, structured breaks for creative exercises that will inspire you, as well as a clear look at who you are and what makes you special.
The key concepts start from our basic question: “What is your business?” and “What is not your business?”? Who is your ideal client? How can you service them? What is a marketing strategy, and your sales? How can you use social media and your personal brand?
We’re not just building a list of tasks, we’re discovering who you are and what you want to create in your life and what makes you different from others. We’re creating the foundation for growth.
Join us for group coaching as we explore where you are, what’s in your way and how we can clear the way for what brings real joy into your life… So that every day is a great day and a beautiful opportunity to be with yourself and those around you.
As well as the serious stuff of your business, we’ll build energy with music, meditate together for wellbeing and have some fun and laughter with new friends. And if you get up at 6am to do Yoga, that will be welcomed too! Be ready to experience a more successful business!
If you’re finding you’re too in your head, and too in your business, take a step back and reevaluate what you really want in your life and your business.
Growth comes from change. Allow that change.
We will work as a group, and individually, on your future and how to create the success that you would like.
To start, I ask you to fill out a detailed onboarding form, so we both understand where you are right now. This is truly working on your business!
The next question, then, is … how can I help to empower you to live the life, and have the business, that you want? We’ll look at what will help you achieve your goals.
My approach is to look at the whole business and person. We’ll typically work on some of these:
Phil quickly honed in on the reasons that my online events business wasn’t achieving the success that I know it’s capable of. We worked together to clarify my vision and improve the areas which we discovered were causing difficulty.
I now have a clear path forwards and a sense of hope that was missing before.
Making the most out of your retreat starts with proper preparation. Follow these tips and you’ll be ready to go:
1. Prepare a list of questions or challenges that you want to discuss on the retreat
Before you head out for your business coaching retreat, make a list of questions and concerns that are important to you as an entrepreneur. Bring these with you and share them with your coach so that they know what information is most important to have for future sessions.
2. Be willing to have an open mind
Most of us are used to being with our teams and it’s hard to change that mentality. Remember that this is a new experience for everyone, so try to be accepting of everyone’s feedback and open your mind up to new ideas.
3. Put aside any expectations you have about the retreat
You may have some ideas about what the retreat will be like, but remember that this is a brand new experience for everyone. By entering with an open mind and a willingness to learn, you’ll learn more and wind up being pleasantly surprised by the results.
4. Be prepared to write copious notes
Taking notes is a great way to learn and remember the information that you’re given. 5 minutes of brainstorming can result in hours of work to do later, so be organised and take your own notes.
5. Be ok with not being perfect
The goal of this retreat isn’t perfection, it’s growth and learning about yourself. Set that as your goal from the outset and you’ll enjoy the results more!
Taking part in a business coaching retreat will help you analyse what goals you want for your business and how to achieve them effectively by allowing you to focus on what works for you specifically.
