what our clients say…


With any deadline cycle, you can see there is a point in time - a moment - that commences, called ‘crunch time’. This is the time that counts.


In a sporting game, this is when the whistle blows to start the game, and when all of the training comes together for you and your team to perform at your best. You win the game. What happens next, however, really shows you how effective you were. Do your players recover quickly, or do they get stretchered off, injured?

In business, despite leaders' best intentions of leading and driving their teams to perform at their peak when it counts, the pressure of delivering to the deadline overcomes that intent. Leaders become inconsistent and teams move into chaos. The focus shifts to compliance and delivery at almost any cost. This results in stress, overwhelm, poor decision making and sometimes, resignations.

‘Crunch Time’ focuses on these 3 things: leaders, their people and how they deal with the pressures they face. This is because when times are good - everythings’s great, but when times get tough, people shift.

Every deadline, every crisis, every moment of truth can come at great cost if you don’t manage your way into and out of crunch time.

Talk to me about how your leaders can lead through crunch times with greater impact: allowing them to more effectively address risks, make the right decisions and leaving their teams feeling inspired. Empower them with the tools to deliver to deadlines without killing their people.
