Learn about what successes you can expect when you work with a Business Coach
Coaching is now a necessity. As the business world grows faster and more competitive, it’s rather difficult to keep up with the industry changes and the modernisations in sales, marketing, and even in leadership strategies.
Even though you can get back in business without the help of a coach, it definitely becomes far more difficult to flourish without one. Even the most successful leaders in business have people behind them who provide guidance and perspective to make sure every decision is calculated and every strategy is well thought through.
Fact: Over 40% of Fortune 500 companies use Business Coaching. Business Coaching is not just for inexperienced entrepreneurs. Even large corporations and people with MBA’s utilise Business Coaching as a means to grow and develop as leaders.
The initial challenge is accepting the reality that there are certain aspects of your management style that need improving. Most leaders settle with what they have in place, as long as it’s ‘working’. It’s going to be problematic to entertain thoughts of seeking help when everything seems to be doing fine, so there will always be reluctance and doubt.
Are you interested in growth?
Working with a Business Coach is not something that is only done when a business is in crisis. In fact, many executives and companies regularly use Business Coaching in the same way they might have an accountant, a lawyer and other professionals who fulfill specific roles for the team.
For as long as you are fascinated with the idea of maximising the full potential of your business and your own skills as a leader, then there will always be room for Business Coaching. I personally believe that everyone needs a Coach regardless of the shape, size, or flavour of their business.
Business growth is that period where the business reaches the point for expansion and seeks additional options to generate more opportunities. To get there, it’s the leader’s responsibility to guide the team as to what actions to take and to motivate them to work towards the goals. My role as a Business Coach is to provide that intelligent perspective on decision-making, time management, financial strategy, and other important aspects that need to be mastered to reach full leadership growth.
It’s not about teaching you how to run your business
Coaching is about learning. As a Business Coach, my job is not to teach. Although I may be able to teach you a lot about things, I am not there to teach you what exactly you must do to grow your company. I do not know how to do things better than the owner of the business. I’m only there to observe patterns and set the stage for new actions and then work with you to put these new, more intelligent actions into place. In short, I am not there to do the work for you.
It’s about gaining focus and following through plans
Everyone knows that running a business requires one to wear many hats. However, because of this, leaders tend to forget the most important hat that needs to be worn all the time: growing and developing the business. Business Coaching ensures that the business owners are focused on working on the right things. It’s the job of the Coach is to ensure that the business owner is held accountable for doing what they said they would.
