How Can Business Coaching Help Me?
As a business owner, you by necessity wear many hats -- chief executive officer, financial officer, human resources administrator, marketing director, operations manager, and more. Typically, the initial vision of the owner is to provide quality services or products, while minimizing commitment of time to the "business" side of his or her firm. And, it can be lonely at the top when you're the sole owner without an advsory board of directors to brainstorm your deas with.
That's where we help. Our role is to help you work ON your business, not just IN it. We work with you on the "business" side of your business -- operations, marketing, administration, management, and other issues -- so you can focus on the core reason you started your business.
Business coaching is about transformation -- tackling your business challenges and finding their solutions, or taking your successful business to its next level of opportunity.
Our Business Support Program provides the structure, actions, and practical solutions and strategies to help you achieve what you want for your business --
Importantly, there are several things we don't do. We do not make your decisions for you, and we don't push you in any specific direction. You know what you want for your business. We facilitate -- not dictate or impose. All decisions remain in your hands, you stay in control.
What is Your Role?
Simply, you must be open to coaching and new ideas! A positive reflection of you, this means:
Coaching is a partnership and investment by both you and your coach. We must work together as a team with mutual trust, confidence and respect.
Our Coaching Approach
Our approach is straightforward: We brainstorm with you, listen, ask probing questions, challenge, encourage, advise, and give feedback, all toward the goal of attaining your vision for your business.
We work with you one-on-one, in person. We do not coach by phone, email or on-line only. We believe that good, lasting results can best be achieved by the individualized, personal interaction and synergy of ideas created by working together in person.
We help with your practical projects as well. For certain specific business needs, such as a Business Plan or Marketing Plan, our Solutions Modules provide a structured approach to many of the areas in which the business owner seeks solutions. To see if this approach would benefit you, read about the Solutions Modules currently available in 9 key areas of business.
In sum, as your coach/advisor, we are in it with you for the long haul
to drive your business forward.
We help you determine what needs to be done and actions to accomplish it,
and then are with you throughout their implementation.
Just as in other endeavors, such as sports, many business owners
make coaching an integral part of their life.
