Working with a Business Coach concentrates on the key elements of effectively running a business
As your business seeks to grow faster and more competitive, it also becomes rather problematic to keep up with the industry changes and the modernisations in sales, marketing, and even in leadership strategies.
You can survive in business without the help of a Coach, but it has definitely become far more challenging to thrive without one. Even the most successful leaders in business have coaches behind them who provide guidance and perspective to make sure every decision is premeditated and every strategy is well thought of.
Almost half of Fortune 500 companies in the world benefits from Business Coaching. It’s not just for inexperienced entrepreneurs; even large corporations and people with MBA’s use Business Coaching as a means to grow and develop as leaders.
The early challenge is acknowledging the reality that there are certain facets 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 difficult to entertain thoughts of seeking help when everything seems to be doing fine, so there will always be reluctance and doubt.
Priority #1 should be growth
Working with a Business Coach is not something that is only practiced when a business is in crisis. In fact, many 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 fancy 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 your responsibility as a leader 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 would be 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.
A Coach will not tell you how to run your business
Coaching is a learning process. As a Business Coach, my job is not to teach. Although I may be able to share with 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.
Coaching helps you to gain more focus and follow your plans through
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.
