STEWART BELL

I’m Stewart, Business Coach and Founder of Audere Coaching & Consulting.

I’ve spent well over a decade coaching over 300 professional services firms to improve business performance and find opportunities to innovate. I’ve worked with all types of financial services firms large and small, including financial advisers, accountants, risk specialists and mortgage brokers, and experienced a wide range of business models, successful and otherwise.

More recently, I wanted to see if the methods used to launch Silicon Valley startups held opportunities for our own industry. It was journey that lead to launching our own startup incubator, Corporate to Freedom.

My experiences gave me fresh insight into three core problems plaguing advice businesses: lack of efficiency, staffing issues and an inability to stand out from their peers in the eyes of clients.

To solve those frustrations, I created Audere. We provide business coaching programs that include proven methods to achieve more with less, a structure for engaging, motivating and developing an “A team” of staff, and ways to make your business stand-out and innovate. Many of these ways include exploring tech methods of growing businesses faster, achieving greatly enhanced performance, and a lot, lot more.

I’ve done this because I believe the power of innovation needs to be put into the hands of those ethical and entrepreneurial advisers who represent the future of our industry. The only way they can in turn foster this innovation is to have solid, performing businesses providing them the resources and headspace to create the business models of the future.

Ultimately, success for me comes when I lead my clients to feeling motivated, excited and focused on the many proven ways to achieve success. When those things come together, all other elements fall into place.

How To Create An Anti Micro Management Rhythm in Your Firm

Here’s an issue that came up as part of my 1:1 coaching over the past few months. The effort required to manage staff workload.

To be specific, more than one adviser I’ve worked with recently has spoke of having to spend significant time each week assigning tasks to their team, then even more time tracking what’s supposed to be getting done and getting updates.

Then, when they did manage to farm out well defined scope, good team members (often VAs) chewed through the work in a fraction of the time required to assign it.

That’s the wrong way around, obviously. Staff are supposed to free you up to do the work that makes the business grow. They’re supposed to come to you and report where they’re at. The tasks you’re assigning shouldn’t take longer to handover than do.

After all, if that’s the case it’s quicker to do it yourself, right. Only problem is that’s the kind of thinking that will restrict you from ever growing.

How about a solution (well, a partial solution. There’s more to it than just this) that would a) require only 20 mins a day, and b) free you up from being a human workflow/ reporting bottleneck?

Interested? Watch on…

If you’re interested in this and more, happy to share with you how I’m solving these issues and others stopping advice firms from leveraging their growth potential. Drop me a line at stewart@audere.com.au and I’ll share the inside scoop.

Why You Need To Stop Typing Your File Notes

Apologies in advance for the aircraft noise, but I felt strongly enough about this not to want a little background noise to stop me from putting this out.

At what point did making non touch-typists input file notes into a computer system ever sound like a good idea?

However, that’s what thousands of advisers do every day and wonder why one of the major time-sucks in their business is record keeping.

Worse still, we’ve created a situation where most file notes aren’t done for days, maybe even weeks, after the meeting. By that time a wealth of important data is lost, never to be remembered.

The answer isn’t recording every client interview either. Who has time to listen back to a two-hour review meeting, or wade through a speech-to-text word-for-word transcription?

There’s a much better way and in this video blog I’ll give it to you, tech and all.

All you need to install is the habit.
