An old Hebrew proverb, written almost 3,000 years ago states:
'As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.'
This principle is as true today as when it was first written.
Sharpening Stone is dedicated to the development of executives and the building of businesses through a series of mentoring programs that will allow executives to deliver their full and true potential to both themselves and their organisation.
All business goes through different stages at different times. At each of these times there is a need for special skills that can be brought to bear on the opportunity or the challenge. The skills however may not necessarily be needed for the long term. Sharpening Stone can deliver the skills necessary at that critical time. Staff at Sharpening Stone have previously held roles as General Managers, Departmental Directors, Managing Directors or Non-executive Directors in private and public companies with revenue ranging from just a few million dollars to over a quarter of a billion. Consequently, all our activities are provided with a clear understanding of the needs and pressures of the CEO, an appreciation of the need to modify activities based on the size of the operation and a clear focus on the delivery of bottom line improvement.
