We believe businesses that focus on profitability AND human factors are the future and as such we're passionate about creating solutions that drive positive outcomes for physical, cognitive, social, cultural and emotional wellbeing.

Honesty + Transparency

Accountability + Integrity

We love working with people who are brilliant, clever and motivated, but we also know that doesn't happen in a vacuum, which is why we're not scared to make sure you live up to your promises and hold you accountable for doing the hard work you need to succeed.

Helping You Change The World

Going Beyond.

how we're different

At Vision Beyond Advisory we believe every leader and business owner deserves facts they can do something with - instead of fumbling their way in the dark with spreadsheets and figures they don't understand or piles of reports that mean nothing to them.


Our superpower is taking numbers and translating them into an easy-to-understand visual format that you can use to build financial strategy AND create an implementation plan so future growth becomes a reality.


We'll then work with you to help you build a more agile and efficient business by managing your:


> accounts payable and receivable

> billing

> general ledger

> payroll, and

> month-end reporting


Together we'll shed light on what's been holding you back financially; from unpaid taxes to poor employment choices, so you can move forward. No judgement and no finger pointing.


When you work with us you don't need to spend hours considering all your options or consulting with dozens of other professionals, all you have to do is take the next step.

Virtual Services.

why outsourcing makes sense

If your company is small and fast-growing, outsourcing your accounting results in greater productivity, cost savings, and more accurate transaction processing.


Outsourcing to our team of high-level, strategic finance professionals isn't like bringing just another accountant or bookkeeper into your business. Our team becomes part of your team, we work with you to develop clear goals and help you take the kind of action that will get them achieved.


Working with us will give you the skills you need to take your business to the next level of growth - without the overwhelm, stress, and financial obligations of a full-time CFO or finance team.



VIRTUAL CFO SERVICES

As your strategic partner, we're on hand to help you understand your numbers, assess the ongoing financial health of your business, and help you plan for the future, so you can achieve your goals and make significant impact in the world.

Each month you will get access to:

  • Your own dedicated CFO

  • Strategic planning and mentoring sessions

  • Cash flow forecasting

  • Scenario modelling

  • Process mapping

  • Break-even analysis

  • Real-time financial reporting dashboards

  • Financial policies + procedures: creation, implementation & training

  • Financial management, reporting & training

OUTSOURCED FINANCE

Concentrate on running your business and leave the day-to-day management of your finances to us. Just like having your own in-house accounts department our team will manage all your financial obligations, without the overheads.

Here's what we'll help you with:


  • Set up, automation, integration, and training on your Xero cloud accounting software

  • Ongoing bookkeeping services

  • Payroll management

The Invisible Rift: Negative Impacts of a Disconnected Team on Your Business

October 06, 20232 min read

Imagine a business where employees work in isolation, disconnected from one another, like individual cogs in a machine. Such a scenario isn't just a workplace inconvenience; it can have profound and far-reaching negative impacts on the entire organization.

Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence in workplaces all over the world. Disconnected teams can experience a number of problems, including decreased productivity, higher turnover rates, creativity stagnation, increased stress levels, poor communication, missed opportunities, damage to company culture, and customer dissatisfaction.

Here are some of the negative impacts of a disconnected team:

1. Decreased productivity

When team members lack a sense of connection and collaboration, productivity often takes a nosedive. When individuals feel isolated, they may be less motivated to work efficiently, leading to missed deadlines, incomplete projects, and decreased output.

2. Higher turnover rates

Disconnected teams can experience higher turnover rates. When employees don't feel a sense of belonging or camaraderie, they're more likely to seek opportunities elsewhere, resulting in costly recruitment and training processes to replace them.

3. Creativity stagnation

Innovation thrives on collaboration and diversity of thought. Disconnected teams stifle creativity, as individuals are less likely to share ideas or engage in brainstorming sessions when they feel isolated. This lack of innovation can hinder a company's ability to stay competitive.

4. Increased stress levels

Disconnected teams often report higher levels of stress. Isolated employees may feel overwhelmed, unsupported, or anxious about their work. This can lead to burnout, absenteeism, and a toxic work environment.

5. Poor communication

Effective communication is the lifeblood of any successful organization. A disconnected team can lead to communication breakdowns, misunderstandings, and a lack of clarity, ultimately affecting the quality of work and decision-making.

6. Missed opportunities

Disconnected teams may overlook valuable opportunities. When employees aren't collaborating and sharing insights, the organization may miss out on potential improvements, cost-saving initiatives, or strategic growth prospects.

7. Damage to company culture

A disconnected team can erode the company's culture. Instead of fostering an inclusive and cohesive environment, a disconnected team can create a culture of indifference or even hostility.

8. Customer dissatisfaction

External stakeholders, including customers, can feel the impact of a disconnected team. Poor communication within the organisation can lead to delays in responding to customer needs, resulting in dissatisfaction and potential loss of business.

9. Long-term organisational decline

Ultimately, a disconnected team can contribute to the long-term decline of a business. It weakens the organisation's foundation and undermines its ability to adapt, grow, and thrive in a dynamic market.

The negative impacts of a disconnected team extend far beyond the immediate workplace. They touch every aspect of an organization, from productivity and innovation to morale and customer satisfaction. As leaders and team members, it's essential to recognise the emotional and tangible consequences of this disconnection, and actively work to foster a culture of collaboration, communication, and connection. Only then can a business truly flourish in today's competitive landscape.
