Watch out for the signs to seek professional help in growing your business
Business owners often feel like everything is under control and nothing could go wrong — until the exact opposite happens. It’s only then that you start to realise there are things you need help with in your business.
In all my years as a Business Coach, I’ve noticed that business owners are rather hesitant to seek help because they don’t want to admit that they are a failure. I help them understand that a few of us know everything, and we all need guidance to help us reach our full potential. No one can claim to know everything there is to know about entrepreneurship — myself included — but when I work with a client, I make sure we determine the root cause of each failed scenario and work our way to address those problems.
These are the usual “symptoms” that indicate a need for Business Coaching:
When goals seem too impossible even when they’re not
Not getting the results you want is the most common reason to seek help. You have goals, but you can’t seem to reach them. Too often, part of the problem is that you are too close to the situation. You think you know what you need to do. Or maybe you are excessively attached to a plan or concept that really isn’t working. A Business Coach can bring an outsider’s subjective point of view of the situation and help you get beyond the problem.
When you can no longer cope with too much responsibility
When you’re starting to feel overwhelmed by your business obligations, that can be a sign that it’s time to get outside reinforcement to get you through the problem. When you feel overworked, as if there isn’t enough time in the day, you can no longer be effective. A Business Coach can come in, look at your processes, and suggest changes until you feel like you’ve gain more room for yourself to work without getting burned out.
When you can’t execute your plans
Sometimes, you do know what to do, but you don’t implement it — maybe because you lack the courage, you’re not sure whether it’s the right thing to do, or you just simply don’t want to take the risk. No matter how brilliant your vision is for your company, nothing will happen if you refuse to take the steps to achieve it. A Business Coach can help you see things more clearly so it would be easier for you to make decisions. It takes a certain skill to be able to balance objectivity and trusting your feelings. You need someone to help you decide to finally convert those plans into real actions.
When you need a set of fresh eyes
You can’t always talk to your team about what’s happening with your business, and how to make it grow. Sometimes, you need someone to talk to, a Business Coach can help. Bounce ideas off your coach and get honest feedback when necessary. You can start moving forward with the help of someone you know you can trust to tell it like it is so you can move your business forward.
