Being a great leader means being a great delegator

If I had a pound for every excuse I’ve heard about why people don’t delegate then I would be a wealthy man.

You are the amazing entrepreneur that got your agency to a certain size but you are also in danger of becoming the bottleneck to growth - since everything sits on your shoulders and indeed, you want to be in control of everything.

About Rob

I have 30+ years of commercial business experience. After beginning my career by working in various blue chip companies, I took the leap In 1991 to start my own marketing, PR and design agency. Over the next 11 years, I grew the business into an award-winning agency with 25 staff and revenues in excess of £1.5m. In 2002, I sold the business and then retrained to become a coach and mentor. Since forming Da Costa Coaching in 2007, I have helped over 350 agencies to grow in a sustainable, profitable and enjoyable way.

Why work with Rob?

Rob has been a 'critical friend' to me and my business for some years. A couple of years ago he knew I was struggling with defining my services and positioning and that my business was suffering as a result. He asked me one simple question that immediately gave me clarity, direction and a sense of purpose in my business, and set me on the road to my current success, running a business with a six figure turnover, travelling the world doing something I love and get well paid for it. What was that one question? You'll need to work with Rob to find out.

Rob has been working with us for a few years and has helped us niche down and focus. As a result we got rid of some bad fit clients and our culture improved massively. Revenue has grown by 100% and more importantly, profit by 300%. Today we are completely different business and I can't recommend Rob enough!

MD, Digital Trawler

As an established independent consultant, I was starting to get a seven-year itch. I wanted a clearer idea of where I was taking my business and I was struggling to articulate a vision for myself. That's when I came to Rob. He was invaluable. He made me consider my options and explore each in detail. It quickly became apparent which I was most passionate about. From there, he helped me clarify it in a meaningful way - so it would motivate my target market, and so it would be profitable. My new proposition has been a huge success and has led to fascinating new work with new clients. Rob has been a big part of making this happen.
