Dealing with Growth?  Simplify Complexity 

Melbourne Business Coaching and Mentoring Program

Perhaps your problem is more complex than simply not having enough clients, enough profit, enough time, or a high performing team. Maybe you have several of these at the same time, or maybe you are planning for extraordinary growth, or perhaps a sale?
​Maybe you have complex supply chains and processes and need to eliminate waste or help you set up a continuous improvement program that focuses on your customers' satisfaction.

Talk to us

Whatever it is, we love a challenge and would love to help you. As a member of the Network of Consulting Professionals, we have access to consultants with experience in over 90 different industries and expertise in more than 75 business disciplines, if we can't help you, we know someone who can because together, we've never encountered a business challenge the NCP hasn't been able to overcome.

In case you've had bad experiences with coaches before, Sharpen work a little bit differently.

    • None of our programs have lock in contracts. If we aren't performing for you, then simply stop paying.
    • We are available for help whenever you need us.
    • We don't watch the clock.
    • We work for you in between sessions.

If any of this resonates with you, then you are in the right place. Our proven approach to building capability in you, your people and your business systems is literally designed to empower you to operate your business proficiently without our ongoing help.
