  1. How many professional learning events have you attended that just didn’t quite match up to what you were sold?

    You know that age old saying, ‘There’s no time like the present’. It’s never rung truer for HR Consultants than right now.

    Now is the time to Leap into Consulting™.

    Given current global circumstances, this might go against what you think.

    So - why now?

    With ongoing lockdowns, furloughs and struggling businesses, becoming a Consultant can feel like a risky move. But the truth is we are living through a time where all the elements have aligned for HR consultants to succeed.

     Here is why:

    1. Businesses are crying out for external help. With many full-time staff on furlough or facing redundancy there are resource gaps that need to be filled. Hiring a consultant helps businesses do this while they remain in recovery mode.

    2. Full-time HR staff who are still working have spent much of the last few months firefighting. A lot (if not all) of their attention has been focused on COVID-19 and its implications. But that doesn’t mean that other HR functions don’t need attention. They do. And consultants are perfectly placed to address them.

    3. At a time like this, businesses need to hire people who are used to change, people who know how to work in uncertain circumstances, and people who can jump right into the unknown to make things happen. Hello consultants, this is our forte!

    It doesn’t matter if you’re just starting out on your consultancy journey, or if you’ve been working as a consultant for a while.

    What does matter is your next steps into establishing yourself and finding an income. And the time is now. This exceptional opportunity for HR Consultants won’t last for long, so now is the time to push forward, take the Leap into Consulting™, and to make things happen.

    September has always been one of the busiest months in the consulting diary so you need to have clarity and be ready for this.

    Here at Leap into Consulting™ we have the perfect 6 week course to make sure you’re prepared, up-to-speed, and able to take advantage of this window.

    Have you spent the last few months during lockdown working on your business? Great!

    Have you spent the last few months juggling everything you can at home without putting any effort into your consultancy? That’s ok.

    Have you found yourself furloughed or redundant but with a strong desire to get back into the working world? Fantastic.

    Our HR Consultant Bootcamp will ensure that in just 6 weeks you’re ready to jump into consulting and to say ‘yes!’ To all the amazing opportunities that are waiting for you.

    But time is of the essence. Say yes to our 6 week bootcamp now. The course starts on 3rd August 2020 and by mid-September you’ll be saying ‘yes’ to lots of exciting consultancy offers.

    Are you ready to make consultancy work for you? Contact us for more information now. Space is limited to just 8 people, so register your interest now

  3. Summer Bootcamp


    As we cross the 6-month mark of 2020, it’s fair to say that so far, it’s been a year none of us could ever have anticipated.

    As a business owner, or someone wanting to start a new business, you probably haven’t found yourself in the same place as your New Year plans expected.

    But don’t give up hope just yet, we still have half a year to turn things around.

    Early on in lockdown I ran a 6 week, fast-track, Virtual HR Bootcamp. It was the first time I’d run the course virtually, following many successful face-to-face Bootcamps, and it was aimed at helping HR professionals to make their Consulting business a reality.

    I’m so pleased to say that it was a huge success so I’ve decided to run another!

    Why join my 6 weeks, fast-track, virtual HR Bootcamp?

    Six weeks is all it will take to turn your life around and become the boss of not only your business, but also your life.

    • Maybe you want to do it so you can spend more time with your family?
    • Maybe you’re dreading the return to #officelife and want to continue to work from home?
    • Maybe some time away from day-to-day operations have shown you that there is another way and you want in?
    • Maybe you want to work less, but earn more money? (let’s be honest - who doesn’t want this?!)

    My Virtual HR Bootcamp will help you achieve all of the above in just 6 weeks.

    In it you’ll:

    • Create clarity around your services and products;
    • Grow in confidence as you realise that you can make this happen;
    • Discover the tools and knowledge to find - and win - new clients;
    • Gain access to growth accelerators; providing you with new income streams;
    • Join a community of like-minded Consultants to work and grow with, beyond the Bootcamp;
    • Have with a 90-day Accountability Plan and ongoing support;
    • Be motivated to take action.

    At the end of 6 weeks you’ll understand:

    • How to find ongoing clients that you love to work with;
    • How to price yourself sustainably (work smarter, not harder);
    • How to build a life that works for you;
    • How to build a healthy, profitable business;
    • How to make consulting work for you.

    Why now?

    I have even more good news for you!

    Businesses are screaming out for HR consultants at the moment. In-house HR teams have been mainly focussed on the ramifications of COVID-19 for the last few months. While obviously very important, it doesn’t mean all other operations have ceased, so there is plenty to be done.

    Which makes this the perfect time to start your own HR Consultancy business. Make it one that is up, running and ready to jump at all the opportunities in just 6 weeks time.

    I hope to see you in August! 

    HR Bootcamp - Perfect if you need that final push to follow your dream

    "I would absolutely recommend the Virtual HR Bootcamp if you are thinking about setting yourself up as a consultant or you have been going for a while and need to refocus. I was a bit dubious about how much I would get from the course given that I had just had a coaching session with Sarah and had been given LOADS of hints and tips. However I have met some absolutely fab people who I would like to stay in contact with. I thought being a consultant would be lonely and I wouldn't have much support but I actually feel more connected and supported by this group than my own current employer".
  4. Clarity is important in any business, but never more so than when you’re starting out.

    As a new business owner you need to run with efficiency and effectiveness. Clarity of purpose will ensure that you do. 

    Easy, right? Yes - but only if you know how. 

    Clarity

    In my 25 years of running an HR Consultancy and in helping others to do the same, I’ve seen so many people fall into the trap of ‘being busy but going nowhere’. 

    Without having initial clarity on exactly what it is you want to achieve - and how you will do it - this is an easy trap to fall into. I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t fallen into it myself a couple of times in my early years.

    But clarity will save you from jumping into this trap. 

    • Clarity will allow you to work on developing your business, rather than firefighting every day. 
    • Clarity will increase your efficiency, taking you to your end goal faster. 
    • Clarity will reduce your workload, in turn reducing your stress. 
    • Clarity allows you to focus on the bigger picture. 

    Ultimately, clarity will get you where you want to be. 


    How can you build clarity? 

    AdobeStock_147520109

    First, you need to identify a few things about your business, but also your lifestyle. Among these are answers to the below: 

    What is your concept? What are your products? What are your goals? What are your dreams? How much is your time worth? 

    Once you have your answers you’ll need to combine all of the above into a clear plan, in order to build your business in the timeframe you desire. 

    In my Leap into Consulting™ Virtual Bootcamp, I dedicate a module to clarity to make sure you are crystal clear in your understanding of your business model and how to apply it. 

    We’ll work together to find the right answers for you, and use these to identify your areas of speciality, your ideal client, your base fee, and much more. 

    I love helping others define and reach their goals, so I’m excited to help you do the same.
