…I openly admit Stride Group was a pivotal component in helping me be ready for this transition and would strongly recommend his services to anyone…
If I am completely honest, it was my wife who took the initiative on my behalf to organise coaching with Stride Group. I am all for pushing myself, but admittedly was slightly sceptical about what I would get out of our sessions, thinking executive coaching was all fluff and no substance.
How wrong I was. By the end of the first session I was highly impressed with the personable approach, the obvious preparation they had done, they way they challenged me and their program for helping me achieve my goals. By the end of the program, I had systematically analysed myself, identified strengths I was under-utilising and developed systems to help me improve the areas I was not performing so well in.
It was at this point I made the decision to pivot my career, moving from an executive marketing role into the management of my own consultancy. I openly admit Stride group was a pivotal component in helping me be ready for this transition and would strongly recommend their services to anyone willing to grow themselves and how they approach success.

…Adam and the Team at Stride helped us with short, medium and long-term goal setting, and developing strategies that are taking us to the next level…
We engaged Adam in two capacities. Firstly as a business mentor. Adam helped us with short, medium and long-term goal setting, and developing strategies that are really are taking us to the next level-especially regarding sales and marketing. The strategies were able to be implemented and have resulted in substantial sales growth. They also assisted us in longer term planning and flagged issues we’ll need to be across in the future including succession planning-and how to get on the front foot. We also used his services as a recruiter to hire our 2IC.
Having worked with me closely and ‘getting’ our culture, it was a natural extension for me to trust that Adam and his Team would find not only a person eligible, but suitable for our company. Their recruitment rates using a fee-for-service model were significantly lower than what we normally paid. I highly recommend Stride Group as business mentors and also in a consulting capacity.

…Adam was very good at helping me develop a plan of attack for my career…
I selected Adam as my mentor to assist with understanding how my current skill set would benefit another organisation through changing industry. Adam was very good at helping me develop a plan of attack for my career – not just for the shorter term but the medium and long-term as well. He helped me brainstorm the various options and pros and cons as we saw them at the time – always ensuring however that I had maintained a strong vision of the big picture and longer term.
The outcome of my career mentoring with Adam was clarity of purpose and the achievement of the objectives that we developed together. This resulted in me making a move that has been sound on both a professional and personal level.
