2b Limitless as a professional coaching organisation focused on strengths, engagement, performance and transformation. We are focused on c-suite executives, senior leaders, entrepreneurial leaders and high performance teams. Our core business is built around executive coaching programmes and our 2BYB international goal-setting events. We also deliver targeted training and workshops around strengths, goals, strategy, purpose, vision & values and extraordinary success.
As a business, we do not focus on satisfaction… ‘satisfied customers leave all the time!’ Our core focus is ‘engagement’ and our key metric for success in engaging our clients is referral and repeat business. We are very pleased with our performance against this metric with deeper and broader work planned in 2017.
2016 has seen 2b Limitless grow significantly as an organisation based around the quality of our team and the outstanding achievements of our clients. We have assembled our strongest ever team that deliver excellence across a broad spectrum of personal and professional success. We now feel that we have a complete coaching and training offering. • Mick Todd – Founder, Senior Executive Success, Leadership & Strengths Coach • Dr. Justin Kennedy – Senior Executive Coach & Neuropsychologist • David Labouchere, OBE – ‘The Art of Possible’ Facilitator, Strategy and Change Coach • Sacha Fitch – Executive Strengths, Leadership Consultant Facilitator • Kim Page – Communication & Influence Coach and Trainer • Jason Grange – ‘The Art of Possible’ Facilitator • Linda Bonnar – NLP and Youth Empowerment Coach • Bronwyn Byrnes – Corporate Role Player
These outstanding professionals have given us the bandwidth and skills to deliver in an elegant manner that better support our client’s needs. Our primary success measures are built around the achievements of clients and this year has delivered success on an amazing scale. Our clients have built amazing success around coaching and strategy, which we co-developed.
• Bluehaus Group, Dubai – This is our longest corporate coaching relationship and we are incredibly proud of the coaching, training and strategic partnership we have developed. The growth of this business from boutique interior design firm to regional architectural, MEP (Bluehaus Engineering) and urban surveys is a testament to the vision of the leadership and the culture of courageous innovation. Bluehaus Group is a fantastic example of our strengths – engagement – performance – transformation and the process has had a massive mutual positive impact.
• ADCB, Abu Dhabi – Within the board secretariat and legal department of the UAE’s third largest bank we have developed a long-term coaching relationship that was originally focused on developing leadership and management capability across the department. It has now widened around goals and engagement. 2016 has seen this process contribute greatly to increased engagement and successfully support a seamless transition within the structure of the legal department leadership. • E-Golf Megastore, Dubai – Phenomenal growth and expansion from e-commerce platform to opening of two retail stores. Now the largest golf retailer in the Middle East. • The Entertainer, Globally – Executive leadership and management programmes based on building a strength-based culture that have supported the amazing growth of this business in the GCC and internationally. To be recognised as the ‘APP of the Year’ was a key indicator of the success of the transformation strategy that we have consistently supported. • One&Only, Wolgan Valley, Sydney, Australia – The goal setting, strategy development and leadership coaching that has supported the recognition as the ‘AHA Australian Luxury Resort of the Year’.
This recognition is almost secondary when compared with the impact the 2016/2017 goals and strategy have had on performance. • House of Comms, Dubai, From a small twoperson operation to the fastest growing integrated digital, communications and PR business in the region. The strategy and coaching piece that has seen the business grow to represent some of the world’s largest brands and the creation of a culture that everybody believes in and is engaged in is a key element of our work with the business. • IPT Practice, DLA Piper, Middle East, the recently crowned ‘TMT Practice of the Year’ is a long standing 2b Limitless client we have worked with the key partner in developing both strategy and team over the past 5 years and this has had an enormous impact on engagement and performance. This team is explicitly strengths-based and is the trusted IPT advisor to many of the world’s leading brands. • Starwood Hotels, Dubai & Northern Emirates, we have worked with 5 key Starwood properties across the Emirates to develop a focus that has developed leaders, goals and strategy across all properties.
This work has had meaningful impact in terms of top and bottom line performance, increased market share, clarity of objectives, engagement of staff and owners and guest experience. • GASCO, Abu Dhabi, the oil and gas Industry is the key driver of the UAE’s GDP and as such developing local leaders and strategies of substance are critical elements in building sustainable success. 2b Limitless is proud of the training and coaching programmes it has run throughout the year with the leaders at the very highest level in the business supporting them in set clear objectives and giving them the tools to be more impactful leaders.
There are many other individual and organisational successes that we could share. We are proud to work with all of our clients and are delighted to share a small part of their success.
The real heartbeat of 2b Limitless is our backoffice team led by Melanie Bangcaya our Office Manager and Mohammed Harief our PRO and Head of Logistics these two massively dedicated professionals allow the rest of the team to deliver seamlessly by ensuring all the details are managed with excellence. Without them none of our success would be possible. We also receive outstanding support from Vikas Takhtani and Jerald Matiban from Legends Accounting who provide financial planning and strategic financial support.
Complex realities in today’s world The pace of change in the modern business landscape is staggering. Leaders are faced with an unprecedented number of real time decisions that have far reaching ramifications for clients, employees and shareholders. Having real clarity of purpose, objectives, goals and the rituals and behaviours that will deliver performance that will lead to a meaningful impact are critical components of the modern leaders’ toolbox.
As business continues to become more and more complex a leaders’ ability to simplify and identify the true priorities, take agile action and make a meaningful impact is key. That is where we come in and help leaders to develop a roadmap and the tools that they need to deliver excellence in performance.
External coaches for executive and senior management As a neutral sounding board and expert external coaches are able to help generate insights across a variety of industries. As a coach with over 15,000 hours of experience across multiple industries the level of expertise and exposure to high-level relationships and decision-making enables me and all our 2b Limitless coaches to help bring a quality of impartial perspective that is very difficult for an in-house resource to offer.
Priorities for the future Growth – In a word this is our key focus across all of our key success measures. We are building plans to develop a centre of excellence so we can offer pathways and standardised coaching process. We are also looking to develop a standalone high performance coaching and training facility in Asia, in order to offer our clients an unrivalled coaching and goal setting retreat through our 2BYB (To Be Your Best) process, so 2017 promises to be another amazing year at 2b Limitless.
We are currently developing our 2020 strategy and it is focused around building success and leadership processes, programmes and events that focus on strengths, engagement, performance and transformation so we not only plan to be in this space, we plan to be a key player in this space.
