Change of Scenery Landscapes (CSL) is run by husband and wife team Nick and Lauren Kenyon. Nick had previously worked with Anil when he was employed at another landscape construction business, but subsequently left to start his own business. He approached Anil when he realised that he needed a Business Coach to help him with the business direction and to keep him and Lauren accountable and on-track to achieving their business goals.
Nick and Lauren wanted to create a profitable business which would give them the freedom to spend time with their young family. We have helped them to achieve this within 12 months and they have gone from a fledgling business to one that is now highly profitable, working on selective projects with a tight team of 5, and growing.
This was achieved through the use of our regular quarterly business review, goal setting and planning process together with regular education to allow Nick to step away from “the tools” and spend more time planning the jobs, training the team and ensuring that business processes and systems are used to run an efficient and profitable business. They also regularly attend our client Quarterly Growth Days where they hear from and share ideas with our other clients.
Throughout this process, Nick and Lauren also started becoming far more selective in the opportunities that they quoted on and where they spend their time. They now specialise in designer gardens and whole-yard makeovers instead of smaller (and less profitable) paving and retaining wall jobs. This approach was openly discussed with their team who also preferred doing this type of larger-scale work.
