Oddly for a successful person, you’re stuck in a rut.

Maybe you’ve sold out of the business, but can’t let business go.

Maybe you’re nearing retirement, but don’t feel at all retiring.

Maybe you’re longing to quit, but think you can’t afford to.

What next? Where do you start?

What if you fail?

We’re Rutbusters.

And we’re here to help people like you make this change the best in your working life.

For just about every successful professional there will come a moment when that successful professional life has to change.

It can be daunting, dislocating, and challenging in ways you’re unaccustomed to. In our experience it’s quite hard for successful people to admit they absolutely haven’t a clue what to do next.

We call this the paradox of confidence. Set fast in ruts of entitlement, conformity, respectability and success, change hits hard.

At Rutbusters we’re here to make that change a positive new departure rather than a positively dislocating derailment. How?

We start by looking at what you might really want to do in this next stage of your personal career. This remember, is certainly not a winding down – it’s likely to be a third of your entire life.

(And we start as we stay – alongside you. We’re coaches and mentors, not therapists: it’s you who’s in the driving seat.)

We look at your existing skills. Which could be best deployed in which new direction? Advocacy could be a powerful asset to your local NHS trust. Estimating could be very handy if you go into wine production.

We look at new skills you might usefully acquire. Like managing relationships – (especially the most important one you may have taken for granted in the past). Teamworking – a new experience for those used to directing. We can even show you how to work dropbox.

You’ll be startled at the rich seam of capability you have to call on. Stigma and fear are replaced by confidence and control.

Then, because you may feel alone, but aren’t in fact, we put you in touch with like-minded – and indeed like-moulded – people in the Rutbusters network. Contacts who have usually made big change themselves, and who have the means to give practical and effective support for the course you’ve set.

Rutbusters. We’ll bust out the best in you and make every change a change for the better. Let’s start now.

“I went from shrinking away from change to 100% going for it. I haven’t looked back, except with regret I didn’t do it sooner.”

in short:

  • We equip smart people to change.
  • We reframe your skill sets for a new future.
  • We remove stigma and fear and replace them with confidence and control.
  • We do this by exploring different perspectives, providing direction and focus, and delivering a complete framework of support that goes from ‘what on earth do I do now?’ to ‘here’s how I’m going to do it’.

Delivered by like-minded, impartial, successful people who’ve done it themselves. Change is in our DNA. It makes us unique.

We’ll bust out the best in you and make every change a change for the better.

Organisations get stuck in a rut when their people do.

Make change positive for your staff and the whole business will benefit.

By creating better futures for your people, Rutbusters will make a better future for your business.

The Rutbusters retirement transition programme

Successful organisations stay successful by managing change. One of the big changes to manage is how to retire senior management to make way for younger talent: a healthy evolution that’s vital for the common good – and good for the individuals too.

But for those at the top of the tree, the view to a different future can look deeply uncertain. So they get stuck. We call it the paradox of confidence. It’s a rut – but of entitlement, conformity, respectability, corporate seniority – a rut that has been carefully, even lovingly built up over the years, and reinforced by friends, family and peers.

Trouble is when they get stuck, the whole organisation does too.

That’s where Rutbusters comes in. Our transition programme equips your senior people for change. We help them recognise its necessity, calibrate its risks and grasp its opportunities. We reframe their skill sets for the future.  We replace fear and stigma with confidence and control.

We do this by providing a complete framework of support that goes from ‘what on earth do I do now?’ to ‘that’s what!’ and ‘here’s how I’m going to do it’.

Delivered by senior people who’ve done big change themselves.

With Rutbusters, leaving ceases to be a wrench with the past and becomes an exciting step into the future.

And as we help them plan the next phase of their lives – you can plan the next phase of the organisation’s.

The RUTBUSTERS transition programme is tailored to every individual and includes:

  • Setting a course: In one-to-one sessions we penetrate the fog of uncertainty to establish a set of clear objectives. We explore ideas way outside a conventional professional comfort zone, while providing continuous support through the process
  • Skills We’ll audit and uncover the skills needed for the new future. Skills like relationships, that a successful working life may make rusty. Managing stress is one thing – but how do you manage without managers? Our on- or off-site workshops reawaken the skills for success
  • Being is doing Most positive action starts with a plan. This will encompass pretty much everything in a life: family, relationships, loss of identity and structure, replacement of work, health, financial security…
  • The Rutbusters network Everyone’s unique. But they’re not alone. With Rutbusters they’ve access to a growing and supportive network of other senior professionals who’ve made change work for them – and can show and share the way forward.

All delivered by like-minded people who have done it themselves.

In short… we help them plan the next phase of their lives so that you can plan the next phase of the firm’s. A sound investment all round.

Call us now for a free no-obligation consultation to explore how we can meet your needs.
