Who are they?
Since the launch of the original Siltbuster unit in May 2003, Siltbuster Limited has become the UK’s leading provider of water treatment and silt pollution prevention for the construction industry.
Set up and run by experienced process engineers, Siltbuster provides an unrivalled range of technologies and practical solutions for the construction & environmental remediation industry to deal with all aspects of silt management and waterborne pollution prevention or control.
How it all started?
The partnership between Siltbuster and Neish Consultancy started in 2014. Richard Coulton, Business Unit Manager had been trained and coached by Shona during his time previously at JCB. The initial brief was to coach 3 members of the team. This has now grown to us supporting over 15 members of the team.
What was the intervention
Most of our work at Siltbuster is individual coaching. This allows our coachees the confidentially and objectives of an external person to work through their challenges with. Here is what some of them say about us. “I found Shona’s ability to listen, engage and ask thought provoking questions to encourage myself to arrive at a conclusion extremely beneficial. The art of uncovering an answer you may or may not have already decided upon by subtly asking strategic questions is a powerful skill, one which Shona has mastered.”
Several of the leadership team have also completed their Myers Briggs type profile which has created a language for communication at Siltbuster.
We also support Siltbuster with specific facilitation and training. For example, business process mapping and appraisal skills training. We also have joint coaching sessions where more than one person is responsible for a project or are trying to implement the same ideas. This gives the opportunity to have thinking time together.
What was the journey?
Siltbuster has continued to grow during our time with them. This meant that they outgrew their premises and moved to a custom-built new facility just under a mile away.
Since moving into this new facility in November 2017 Siltbuster Ltd has since become a wholly owned subsidiary of Workdry International Ltd.
Richard Coulton says about our relationship with Siltbuster “We value our relationship with Neish Consultancy. Shona knows our business really well and provides an excellent level of challenging coaching to our team”.
