Unleash your scaleup growth potential

For you, right now, scaleup growth is the thing. Getting more customers, more sign-ups, more users, more turnover, more profit. To do that, you need a sustainable structure and fully engaged people.

Traditional business growth approaches often result in dull corporate environments, where work is a joyless, miserable exchange of time for money. Outdated structures, bureaucracy, and power plays strip many modern workplaces of a sense of purpose, connection, or belonging.

In today’s volatile business environment, we believe the most successful organisations are agile and adaptive. They understand you can’t just grow by being more efficient – and their leaders know that when their whole team is engaged with the process of change and growth, they can create a place where people thrive and do their best work.

"My leadership coach is excellent. She has helped me identify areas I think are important to work on and given me practical tools I can use immediately. I always enjoy the conversational nature of our sessions and she's enabled me to uncover some really interesting insights about myself and my work."

Co-founder of SwagPack

"After almost a decade in recruitment I've had external and internal training many times. This is BY FAR the best development I've had. The personal one to one sessions as well as the team coaching was really useful. I've learnt a large amount about 'running a desk'. I couldn't recommend working with Work Extraordinary more."

"Thank you for the exceptional support and expertise you've provided. Your knowledge, tactics, strategies, and support have been invaluable in developing our future leaders. It's now up to them to implement and apply this knowledge in their day-to-day activities. Everything is going well on our end, and the metaphorical 'sat nav' is indeed guiding us."

"It was a wonderful experience with Barry on 1:1 sessions as he helped me with areas which were unidentified to me and developed me according to what is needed to align effectively with my company's goals and strategy."

"A great resource for teams at scaleup stage, looking to accelerate their growth in a sustainable way, whilst being prepared for the challenges that come with this. Really made us consider a number of areas in greater depth and reflect on what direction we were taking the business in and how we get there. An excellent, engaging and useful programme, all round."
