A Method that Grows Your Business While Satisfying Employees

What is it?

Would you like to increase your revenue? This approach will help you to exceed your financial targets, while making you and other staff more satisfied and effective. By answering our confidential interview questions, the route to success which is typically blurred by everyday concerns will become clearer. Staff do not often feel able to be completely honest and they lose focus within the daily grind. The confidential interviews will allow the truth to be told, in an appropriate manner, and the proven business development model indicates what needs to be done.

Who does it?

Kelly Associates is a highly experienced team of business consultants and executive coaches with an impressive track record of facilitating businesses to higher performance and employee satisfaction.

How does it work?

The process begins by gathering the views of the present condition and desired future of the CEO or a relevant director. The goals for the intervention typically include achieving or exceeding the primary business targets along with a higher quality of employee engagement across all levels as well as other key concerns.


Kelly Associates conduct a series of one-to-one interviews with employees below the board (3-15 interviewees) then provides a penetrating analysis that enables key leaders to ‘see the whole business’ while providing actionable recommendations to further growth and employee satisfaction.


The process is a form of ‘truth telling’, allowing the system to speak of its latent potential and how it can leverage further growth. The empathic relationship in the interviews gets people to reveal more, half-formed thoughts, feelings and aspirations. The result is very honest feedback for the leaders about what is and is not working and a systemic view of the complexities and opportunities within the business from those most closely involved. A business development model, that has evolved out of a track record of success over twenty years, gives shape to straight forward actions that consistently lead to a growth in the business and morale.


It works – see testimonials. It represents economy of effort. It can be a one off diagnosis though most use it as a regular intervention over a number of years that keeps them on track. The approach has largely been applied to a whole multi-billion global division of Danone and large country businesses within Kraft and Danone as well as a German investment Bank. It is now ready to be applied to many more businesses.
