Jerome Hartigan Auckland Business Coach

Hi I’m Jerome Hartigan Auckland business coach for entrepreneurs and business leaders.

I’m a former Olympic Athlete. I have started my own successful business which has been growing for 20 years and is now expanding internationally. I have coached 100’s of business owners and leaders over ten years.

Chris Miller, Managing Director, Endeavour

Chris MillerWe were recently in search of a new direction as a business when we met Jerome. His proposition matched well with what we were hoping to achieve and his simple and uncluttered approach helped us clear our minds and focus on where we are going as a business. We have changed how we run a number of areas in our company with immediate positive results. Jerome has facilitated and guided us rather than take any control, this has been most valuable in helping us grow as managers and business owners. We are better company after Jerome’s assistance, we have a stronger desire to achieve our goals and a more focussed plan with his guidance.


We would recommend Jerome to assist you to understand where your business is “really at”, determine where you are going, sharpen your focus and get your team aligned.”

Unique Insights

I bring unique insights from Olympic competition, sport psychology, and eastern meditation techniques. Together with my extensive business and coaching experience. I am willing and able to support you in a wide range of business and personal situations.

My Passion Your Success

I am passionate about supporting business success. And I do this through business and executive coaching, strategic planning, and team facilitation. I frequently support the alignment of co-directors of businesses towards a common focus and direction for their business.

How I work:

We have an initial no-obligation meeting over a coffee. We discuss your vision for your business and your life. We also explore how can the business support you in achieving your life vision. And what needs to happen in the business to enable this. This discussion usually results in some clarity.

What also emerges is the value that strategic planning and coaching can bring to your business.

The two main themes of my work include Strategic Planning and Coaching.

  • The intent of strategic planning is to provide focus and direction for growth and profitability.
  • The main purpose of coaching is to support robust implementation of the plan.

This way of doing things avoids the classic “failure to implement” that occurs with many planning processes.

Benefits of Strategic Planning:

Our unique strategic planning process together with the business model we engage can have a dramatic impact on a business. We have seen the alignment of teams. The additional clarity and focus can help attract the next level of team member. The most important benefit of strategic planning is overall improvement in business performance and profitability.

Benefits of Business and Executive Coaching:

The main focus of coaching is implementing the strategic plan. This may involve a wide variety of challenges including:

  • Implementing numerous projects.
  • Up-skilling various team members and hiring others.
  • Identifying key opportunities and developing them.
  • As well as identifying key lifestyle opportunities and sorting them.
  • All the while delegating and outsourcing more of the roles you perform.

I use a wide variety of coaching tools including awareness, accountability, business strategies, personal strategies as well as strategic and tactical thinking. I also support you in any negotiation for a much improved outcome. I also work on conscious and unconscious methodologies for belief and life purpose changes.

There’s Always Another Level

I welcome a chat over a coffee, to hear about your business.

And I’m excited to hear what is the next level for you in your business.

Case Studies and Recommendations:

Craig Alexander, Partner, Alexander Dorrington Commercial Lawyers

Craig Alexander“Jerome Hartigan was business coach for Alexander Dorrington from 2005 to 2007.

We were interested in the coaching relationship to assist us in some dynamic change.

The coaching provided facilitated a number of changes, and challenged entrenched thinking. We embarked on a new focus on value and adopted the Good to Great business model. All of which made a valuable contribution.”


“I would recommend Jerome as an effective business coach, particularly if your organisation is in need of dynamic change.”

Simon Laurent, Principal, Laurent Law, Immigration Lawyers

Simon Laurent“Working with Jerome Hartigan refocused us on our core business in immigration law, Identifying the drivers for success of the business and getting in touch with those. Establishing the importance of the true value of the work we are doing. Resulting in increasing fees and increasing profits.

Jerome assisted us to restructure the business in a lean and more profitable format, including making some hard decisions about staff, myself and my business. Jerome supported me to refocus on what was important to success of business and myself as a bus owner. Work through my own misconceptions of my self as a leader and as a professional.

Since then I have achieved a number of big long term business goals. I have claimed a significant space of the mind field for immigration law in New Zealand. People come to me for thought leadership, seminars, and media comment.
Profitability has been pretty darn good in the last couple of years. Turnover has almost doubled. And I am also on track to achieve some long term personal and financial goals.”


“I highly recommend Jerome Hartigan as a business coach who gets results.

You need to work with Jerome if you are serious about making a change in your business and personal life. And you’ll need to be committed to doing the hard mental and emotional work. Because Jerome doesn’t take any bullshit.”

Michael Jones, Owner Flipmind, Bespoke Software Development Business

Michael JonesRecommendation:

“I think Jerome has been useful in clarifying my thoughts. He’s been a Fantastic sounding board for me, in a small business with no co-founders, both personally and for bus related issues.”

Steve Hollins, Owner, Stephanos Restaurant Waiheke

Steve Hollins“Coaching with Jerome, sales have increased by 30% this year to a record high for my business – having other restaurants around me drop by 20% in sales. Jerome’s helped keep me focused and look at multiple drivers to ensure continuous growth.

Jerome is a great listener he listens to what is going on inside of me as well as what’s going on around me. And he takes time to acknowledge where I am at. This helps me to gain a fuller picture of myself and my business environment.

Creating clarity for me to make important decisions based on the truth and the circumstances that I am dealing with. Jerome’s stage by stage approach to business development helped make it all much easier.”


“I recommend Jerome for a fresh perspective and fresh new insight into business and business relationships. With implementation of strategies that are achievable and beneficial for business relationships and overall business performance.”
