STRATEGIC ADVICE

nbsp;
We offer strategy facilitation with three linked days over three weeks.

Spacing gives your team time between sessions to test perspectives and connect the dots between future markets, customer needs, strategy and capabilities needed to implement the strategy. This process helps create uniquely valuable and sustainable advantages, that are the hallmarks of a great business.

Hale Consulting Group cut quickly through to the core issues and then supported me in establishing simple yet valuable habits to manage my life more effectively, habits that I continue to use in my daily life years later. Their insight and skills provide solutions for personal as well as corporate growth. They operate at maximum integrity and come highly recommended.

We called on Hale Consulting Group when our company was struggling with its direction. They gave us a clear overview and proposition of options that was invaluable in leading us to make brave decisions and actions. Five years later our Company is a leader in its field and has just won the NSW Telstra Business Award as best business in its category.

Hale Consulting’s greatest strengths lie in their ability to think strategically and to guide others along that path. They demonstrate very effective people management skills and can adapt their style to suit variable client groupings and scenarios. They played a significant role in the development of this Council’s overarching 2020 Strategic Plan and this required intense workshop exercises with Councillors. Soon after I invited them to assist with a radical restructuring of the organization’s management team. I found their input invaluable and importantly both of these key exercises have proven to be success stories for Lismore City Council.

Hale Consulting Group’s lateral and clear thinking has been of immense help in those times when I have felt backed into a corner. Our company and management have benefited enormously both financially and personally due to their creativity, commitment and expertise.

Terry Pitt - Managing Director, Byron Bay Taxis & Limosines

I realised we had plenty of options going forward and I needed some help in evaluating them and choosing the right ones. I found working with Hale Consulting Group amazing. They are so grounded and able to quickly and powerfully choose the right pathway out of many and offer the most suitable and sustainable strategies to make sure we arrive successfully.

Natalie Purcell - Founder , Byron Bay Detox Retreats

In my first 2 years working with John, I have grown Nickel Energy by over 150%. John made sure I set goals that were right for me. He helped me navigate the future at multiple levels, he delivered the skills and awareness my management team needed and found me the key senior management personnel I needed. John has tremendous wisdom, expertise and skill and his level of integrity is second to none.

Nick Lake - Founder, Nickel Energy

I had lots of ideas and not enough focus, which is great as a new photographer but not as a business owner. John asked me the right questions at the right time to move my business from existence and survival to growing success. Around 85% of all new ventures fail and thanks to John, I am not one of them and I am now riding wave after wave of success.

Craig Parry - Surf & Oceanography Photographer, Craig Parry Photography

Creating a strategic plan that was mindful of our finite resources and the multiplicity of demands and views within our community required expert facilitation. John Hale’s skills in bringing our key stakeholders and issues to the table and reaching consensus on a plan were brilliant and we continue to be delighted with the outcome.

Arthur Piggot - General Manager, Kyogle Council

John asked me some tough questions that needed to be answered. His goal was not to undermine us but to make us successful. He concentrated less on the things we do well, and more on the things we must never do badly. He helped us find the opportunities where we had and could build unfair advantages.

Sein Lowry - Managing Directo, Byron Arts Factory

Our Board was only happy to go ahead when John offered us his short pay option. At the end of our initial strategy retreat with him, this gave us the freedom to pay any amount less than the agreed fee by simply writing down our ideas on where he fell down. This didn’t happen, the process was thorough and the results were extremely valuable. We then kept drawing on John’s expertise in the areas of strategy development, securing a government grant and ongoing project management supervision, over the following five years.

Allan Rush, Founding and Managing Director, Permo–Drive Group
John provides you with the understanding and tools to make informed decisions about your future, your key relationships and the future of your business. He guides you through a process of diagnosis and prompting to focus on solutions to problems that you have put in the too hard basket or are preventing your life and your business from developing. We would without qualification recommend John as an outstanding personal and business mentor.

CULTURAL ANALYSIS

nbsp;
We analyse the resource and talent implications with shifts in strategy.

Each culture has its way of thinking, its values and beliefs and its preferences, all of which can be mapped. Our cultural health assignments reduce misunderstanding and ensure people work more effectively and positively with cross-cultural complexities – this process powerfully re-aligns culture with future strategy.

We hired Hale Consulting Group to assess our culture and help us modernise the way we operate as an organisation. The result was fantastic. They delivered an action packed and magical day of team building and awareness raising games and exercises. Morale is much higher and we are working much more cooperatively and effectively as a result.

MENTORING & COACHING

We go into and through the light of transformation with you.
We provide a mix of education, action learning and practical psychology to enhance business, leadership, relationships, confidence, health, and intuition. Our coaching and mentoring helps clients lead better and live purposeful lives. This process builds wealth, health, freedom, compassion and humour. 

I engaged John for 12 months as a mentor and counselor to assist me with staying whole, healthy and compassionate through the, at times, painful deterioration and eventual death of my father earlier this year. John taught me how to relax and breathe from my center. Under his guidance, I was able to release aspects of inter-generational trauma from my father’s heritage, personality and traits. John helped me learn to let go of judgment and anger around my father so that the words “I love you” could finally be spoken, received and felt in Dad’s final weeks. John helped me let go so that Dad could let go and go peacefully.

Julia - Special Counsel, Brisbane Law Firm

I called on John when I needed answers quickly. Although I had more than 25 years of experience of running successful businesses, leading my current startup venture had put me well beyond my comfort zone. I needed some new skills and renewed confidence. John was welcoming and friendly. With his help, we assessed many areas of my business and personal life to help me grow. 

John was very comfortable operating at a level beyond giving advice. Through his openness and availability, I learned from and drew new value from my own experiences. I have no hesitation recommending John and as always, I look forward to working with John again in the future.

Alan Richards - Founder, intelliQuip

I called on John at a time when I really needed the motivation to shift things quickly. John’s diagnosis and advice was spot on and he provided me with some excellent resources to refocus and take charge of my life. I recommend John to anyone as a top-shelf executive coach and confidant.

Chris Condon - Chairman, Condon Group

I am grateful to have worked with John Hale from Hale Consulting Group. John conducted a careful examination of our business moving forward and provided sound and balanced advice for our next stage of growth. I have no hesitation in recommending John as a highly knowledgable and empowering mentor for any growing business. 

Charlotte Battle - Owner, Total Balance Health & Fitness

The Chairman of our Board was very supportive of engaging John as a leadership mentor to extend me. I believe that you never stop learning and John has challenged my boundaries and expanded my outlook at both a business and personal level. His incredible understanding of organizations, people and human nature will change your life. I am truly blessed to have him as a mentor and coach.

Glen Eagles - General Manager, Hurford Group

When I had the privilege to meet John Hale, four years before I became a client, I was deeply impressed by his healing generosity, amazing intuition and grounded tranquillity; So when the ‘chips were down’ and the time came to prepare for and deliver on the most precious project of my life, my decision to call on John was automatic. And I never regretted it. I recommend John to anyone as a world-class therapist and mentor.

Nathalie Belle-Larant - Founder, NBL Solutions Pty Ltd

John created space for me to feel safe, adventurous and authentic. I joined John’s men’s circle 6 years ago, having just graduated from an 18-year relationship. I was an anxious and reluctant man, fearful of life and love. With John’s business mentoring and life coaching programs, I have created a new life, full of love and integrity with business, physical, mental and spiritual growth. John’s knowledge and passion for life and love was the stimulus I needed to grow again. I feel blessed to know John and to continue my work with him.

Hugh McCaffery - Owner, Cleanskincare

John provides you with the understanding and tools to make informed decisions about your future, your key relationships and the future of your business.
