Your Lead Coach
I'm Mark Russell and I'm the lead coach at Real Business Edge.
Together with a carefully selected team of gifted and talented associates, I'm dedicated to helping businesses and organisational leaders just like you, experience sustainable performance, results and success.
I played rugby for London Harlequins and Blackheath in 1990s. I've had representative honours with teams in England and South Africa and travelled the world touring and playing rugby at the highest level.
These experiences demonstrated to me the importance of proper planning and preparation and the extraordinary results that can be achieved through teamwork, co-operation and learning by doing.
Rugby taught me some great lessons about life and business and since I retired I have had ample opportunity to put it all into practice in the real world to see numerous satisfied clients experience outstanding results.
And boy do I have some stories to tell!
I've been fortunate enough to study for an MBA at Henley Business School - one of the top 40 business schools worldwide, according to the FT Global Rankings.
It's one of a handful of business schools in the world accredited by the governing bodies in the UK, Europe, and in the US.
Delegates from 129 countries give the course a very much global perspective. I graduated in 2003.
Outside of work my time is taken up by being an All Pro Husband and Dad, keeping an aquarium of tropical fish and playing golf (often very erratically!).
Why Should You Do Business With Me?
Because my work is better than it was 6 months ago . . . and it will be better again in another 6 months time.
I bounce out of bed each morning and get to work to helping people succeed in doing things that motivate, satisfy and inspire them.
And my goal is to find clients who want to work together so that we can all succeed.
I'm passionate about being in a position to genuinely make a difference for clients. Working to my own personal and professional high standards of ethics and beliefs is another key driver.
What are my Values?
Respect, Integrity, Honesty and Learning.
It's about having a positive feeling of esteem for clients and everyone connected with the business.
It's a heartfelt commitment to always 'Doing the Right Thing' (even when no-one is looking).
It's being 100% truthful, loyal and straightforward with you at all times.
And its building, modifying or reinforcing what we already know about our existing knowledge, behaviours, skills, values, or preferences.
These are core values of Real Business Edge.
They are written on a sign that hangs on the office wall - it reminds me how important it is to live these values on a day-to-day basis by communicating from the heart, walking the talk, and not shooting the messenger!
