HELEN EXPANDED HER BUSINESS & WAS ABLE TO MAKE HER VISION A REALITY

Helen Goddard | Cobalt Search

Thinking differently about search

After experiencing early success Helen didn’t have anyone to bounce ideas off of; she either ended up progressing things that shouldn’t have progressed or just didn’t progress things at all.
Despite having goals & objectives, she needed a plan on how to get there.

I often got ahead of myself; I was running headlong into projects that hadn’t been thought through properly and then realising part way that it wasn’t going to achieve what I needed it to.

Owner, Cobalt Search

The chance of me achieving my business objectives were on a whim and a prayer!

Helen found herself working on her own, with a lot of ideas & inspiration, but no clear direction. Without anyone to ‘report into’ her ideas remained just ideas. She knew she could expand but was struggling to prioritise things to fulfil her vision.

When I set up Cobalt 3 years ago, I was pretty much on my own and I experienced some quick successes. I had goals, targets and knew where I wanted to get to in 1, 3 and 5 years, but what I lacked was what I needed to do, and how much of it, to achieve those objectives.

Setting manageable & visible short & long term targets put things in order

Through weekly 1-2-1 sessions, Helen & Pete put together clear, achievable and measurable objectives that Helen could follow so that her visions had clear direction to come to fruition. In short, she had a plan. Pete was also able to support Cobalt’s marketing program & business development activities. He became Helen's sounding board; listening, encouraging & offering objective & creative advice. Pete has become an invaluable part of Team Cobalt and is the first person Helen rings to tell of successes.

When things have not gone according to plan (as they did during the Covid pandemic), Pete has been supportive, positive and keeps my spirits up, not letting me lose focus or dwell on setbacks and ensuring that we are forging ahead better than ever. I am proud to say we have engaged 5 new clients during the pandemic and have been able to invest money back into Cobalt to expand the team to cope with the new business. Our targets for 2021 have increased and are higher than they have ever been.
