WHY PROBLEM SOLVING AND BUSINESS COACHING?
“To help ambitious business owners succeed.
I recognise traits in business owners I see in myself. We get frustrated when we don’t get the results we want.
I founded Catandra to help business owners wrestling with the challenges of running a company.“
(Andy Wheeler, Founder)
LEWES BASED BUSINESS COACH, MENTOR AND CONSULTANT
Having grown up in Brighton, I have a strong connection to the area and a desire to support local people and businesses. My role as a non-executive director for the Sussex Chamber of Commerce enables me to do this on a voluntary basis.
I founded Catandra in 2015 to help other business owners and leaders build companies to achieve the commercial, cultural and personal objectives they desire.
Based in Lewes, East Sussex, I have been supporting business owners and leaders across the UK for over 5 years. The clients I work with typically feel frustrated because they are not getting the results they want.
The same things keep happening with the same results; the don’t know why this is or what to do.
I support these business owners who have the desire to make positive change and build the businesses they aspire to.
My dad is an engineer and gave me an engineering brain; ever since I can remember I’ve had a passion for understanding how things work. When I was a kid I would take things apart to see what was inside before putting them back together – not always with total success!
A career working in different businesses made me realise that I was always coming up with creative solutions to problems others just couldn’t see. It was like having a bit of magic that added real value.
In truth I’m an entrepreneur at heart, when I founded Catandra I decided to focus my passion, creativity and problem-solving brain to do something totally unique.
I realised that helping people visualise their situations enabled them to see new solutions, this is how the hybrid system was born.
A management consultant is too technical and rigid.
A business coach is too abstract for most business owners.
Visual problem solving involves a blend of coaching and consultancy; together we map out your business and identify the steps to move forwards.
Many business owners and leaders have the same ambitions:
- Increase profits
- Reduce stress
- Improve work/life balance
In reality many go round in circles experiencing the same problems. Unsure how to identify and tackle the core issues, looking for a little help. My system brings clarity around how to move forwards.
Based in East Sussex I work with clients across the UK through face to face and online sessions.
