Gravitas Impact Coach, Leigh Paulden

The Gravitas Impact Difference

People often ask me why I chose to become a Gravitas Impact business consultant. My answer is simple – because Gravitas Impact is the best in what they do.

Gravitas Impact is a global community of the world’s top business coaches. As an organisation, they are world leaders in helping mid-market companies scale and achieve market results that are not only impressive but sustainable as well.

Before joining Gravitas Impact and becoming New Zealand’s only Senior Certified Consultant, I began my coaching career by immersing myself in the best executive education in the world. I set out on an international search to find the business growth framework that would have the biggest impact on New Zealand businesses.

In my search, I evaluated multiple organisations and was unable to find anything that was as comprehensive and scientifically based as Gravitas Impact. Here were some of the things that impress me the most:

Their intellectual property

Gravitas Impact Premium Coaches come equipped with world-class intellectual property and time-tested growth concepts, tools & resources. This includes The 7 Attributes of Agile Growth™ – an agile, scalable and comprehensive framework for growth.

Developed through years of client and coach input, it is a proven, practical and profitable framework for business growth that draws upon authors, thought leaders and market feedback worldwide.

Their Global Community

Gravitas Impact has over 100 coaches spread across 6 continents. They have built a rich and vibrant community of experienced coaches who themselves were top business leaders and entrepreneurs. Globally they have empowered over 20,000 executives to take the steps and decisions required to turn their companies into high-performing market leaders.

Their Certification Process

Whilst anyone can call themselves a business coach, what is impressive about Gravitas Impact is the rigorous training that a Gravitas Impact Premium Coach must undergo to receive their certification. Every year, I undergo a recertification process, ensuring I keep up to date with the latest research on business management and coaching techniques.

As a result of these stringent standards, Gravitas Impact Premium Coaches are recognised as the most experienced and effective mid-market business growth consultants and coaches in the world.

Their Proven Results

Gravitas Impact’s results speak for themselves. On average clients:

  • achieve their goals up to 3x faster
  • realise up to a 3x increase in profitability
  • experience up to a 2x increase in cash flow
  • create alignment across teams to increase productivity
  • experience work/life balance for all executives

What Gravitas Impact can do for your business?

Gravitas Impact recently released a white paper detailing the experiences and performance results of CEO’s who partnered with their business consultants to effect positive changes within their companies. You can read my previous blog about the whitepaper here, but in summary, CEO’s who received coaching from a Gravitas Impact business consultant typically achieved the following:

  • Higher revenue growth
  • Increases in profit margin
  • A reduction in stress levels in senior management and CEOs.

I am passionate about helping New Zealand mid-market companies achieve success here and abroad. I know what it takes to succeed in a competitive market and survive in an ever-changing business environment. Here are some of New Zealand’s top mid-market businesses that I have helped achieve sustainable business growth.
