What is Business Coaching?
Business coaching is the practice of providing positive support to business owners and managers in order for them to reach their goals. It assists people with recognising what needs to be achieved in line with the goals of the business or personal goals.
Business coaches introduce systems and methodologies even when a business is already successful. Sometimes offering a different perspective on issues and goals can make the biggest difference. Business coaches are not only required when a business is performing badly.
People often say “life is lonely at the top”. This does not have to be the case. A business coach can be a sounding board which often leads to getting back on track or making better decisions.
Remember, a business coach is there to help you achieve your goals, whether they are personal or business goals.
Some of the things you can expect to achieve when you employ a business coach:
- Better direction
- Improved leadership
- Increased Employee satisfaction
- Improved profits
- Less waste
- Sales and marketing methodologies
- Strategic planning
- Exit planning
- A better lifestyle with a better balance
- Your thinking will change
- You will have measured outcomes
- More fun
- Less stress
- Executive coaching
- Business mentoring
Who needs a business coach
Business coaching is not for everyone. However, people who want to implement business strategies to lift their business to new heights or increase performance need a business coach. There are many other reasons why you need a business coach which may include:
- You are facing immediate challenges affecting your business
- You want to be challenged so you can improve
- You want to make more money and work less
- Beating your competitor
- Have a sounding board
- Get motivated and set direction
- To put you back on track
Can I afford a business coach?
More importantly, can you afford not to have a business coach?
When you engage a business coach you should be prepared to be challenged and in most cases accept change as well as accept honest direct feedback. This is what you pay for.
When I ran my multi-million dollar IT Services company my business coach assisted me with many issues but more importantly ensured that I set realistic and achievable goals. My company became more customer focussed, more sales focussed and had revenue growth of over 50% for 3 consecutive years. This is what my business coaching can help you do.
My coaching method is different to other business coaches who seem to fluff around and feather your ego. I tell it as it is but I am also a people person. Above all I work for you and there are no long term contracts.
