Creating better leaders and driving a better future for today’s businesses.
LTBC are a team of experienced, talented experts with a shared mission to see you and your business succeed.
Whether you are a small business or large corporate, you can benefit from our mentoring. We promise to always act with integrity, humility and trust.
Mentoring is central to the success, health and growth of modern-day businesses, especially here in NZ.
Leaders today must be strong, effective decision-makers, who act with consistency and decisiveness. They must be willing to learn, adapt and act.
A mentor is someone who can see the talents and abilities that lie within. Excellent mentors motivate, inspire, validate and encourage leaders, helping them realise their values and goals.
We serve as confidants in sensitive areas and become your sounding board and personal advisor, assisting you in understanding conflict and exploring ways to deal with leadership challenges that you face every day.
Above all else, there must be trust and confidentiality within the mentoring relationship—especially if you are looking to change roles or industries.
We work together so you can discover and enjoy the rewards of mentoring and the profound impact it can have on you, your business and your people.
How you will benefit from working with LTBC
1. From job adverts to staff retention, we can help you find the right people and keep them engaged
LTBC can save you time and money and make a difference when it comes to recruiting your key staff.
We get to know your business, your vision, and your goals. We are experts at position profiling and will gather the information which allows us to accurately profile the individual so that you can turn your new employee into an immediate asset.
2. We know what makes a great business: Developing the right culture, behaviours and performance
That’s why we’ll help your business create new strategies to improve team productivity and performance, develop new systems to analyse and measure new methods of working together, and work towards transforming your culture as a complete team, no matter how big or small your business.
A strong company culture makes your workplace attractive – making it easier to find and retain the best people for your business. LTBC helps you focus on building the right behaviours and culture in a structured, strategic and measurable way.
We’ll help you support and manage individuals within your business, whatever their role, so that everyone feels equipped to fulfil your business goals, vision and values.
3) Technology – Delivering the strategy you need
Most technology companies send in a salesman with a lot of product knowledge, but no real experience in using the tool they are trying to sell. They don't take the time to understand your company, or the challenges.
LTBC is different. Before recommending any tool, we always take the time to understand your business and what works for you. This paints a clear picture of how, and where, technology can enable you and your business to grow and thrive.
4) Building and supporting you to be effective, strong leaders.
LTBC helps you cultivate strong and effective leaders.
The best leaders demonstrate:
These are the attributes that all key board members and CEOs should demonstrate and develop in order to support your people, strengthen your brand, drive change and promote your business in a powerful way.
5) Branding that never settles for the status quo
LTBC helps keep your brand moving in a practical, pragmatic and progressive way.
This means looking at branding from a real-world perspective that doesn’t settle for the way it’s always been done. Make sure your brand can keep up with the fast-paced, ever-changing world we do business in, by having the tools and the courage to take risks and evolve.
4) Insurance audits for robust, sustainable businesses
LTBC has years of combined experience which means we can take a comprehensive, impartial approach to evaluating your business insurance. We may also be able to save you costs on your premiums, freeing up money for you to invest elsewhere.
The risk of not being covered could spell business failure.
We don’t sell insurance, but we do audit your cover.
Our expert insurance auditor takes time to understand the nuances of your business and your industry particularly:
- The purpose of your business.
- Your ability to recover after a disaster.
- The level of cover and the reasons for your policies.
We help you understand:
1) The benefits of business planning and disaster recovering planning.
2) How your insurance policies fit into the bigger business picture.
5) Supporting leaders with a vision
LTBC helps business leaders develop the skills they need to build and sustain a winning culture, whilst achieving their business vision. We believe effective people and workplace cultures are:
- Transparent & Responsive
- Equal and inclusive
- Effective and efficient
