What’s Your Plan for a Better 2019?

New year, same problems? Perhaps you’ve heard Albert Einstein’s definition of insanity: Doing the same things over and over but expecting different results. The truth of the matter is, nothing changes if nothing changes. In 2019, don’t just wish for success… plan on it! Take the time to truly understand what your biggest challenges are as a business owner, and then take action to work on them.

You don’t have to tackle your challenges alone. As a local business owner and certified business coach, Accelerate ActionCOACH is here to help you succeed! Below are a few key issues that many business owners struggle with (perhaps even yourself), and how Accelerate ActionCOACH can help:

As a business owner, I feel overwhelmed, isolated and alone.

Business owners often need a sounding board to voice their frustrations and fears, and a discreet, impartial advisor to discuss the tactical and strategic challenges of running a company. This is where you will benefit from a peer-to-peer mentor group – a group of non-competing, like-minded business owners that help to solve problems, brainstorm ideas, share profitable strategies and build valuable relationships.

If you are in need of a safe harbor to come talk about issues of leadership with other business owners who may have dealt with the same problems, consider joining an ActionBOARD.

I am too bogged down and stuck in the day-to-day of running my business to focus on the big picture.

Imagine taking a vacation in 2019 completely unplugged from your business, or being able to delegate those day-to-day business owner tasks in order to have more time to think strategically for your business! Make it a goal in 2019 to educate your key managers on the general ins and outs of running a business through a management development trainee program.

A management trainee program is a great resource to give your employees knowledge and insight to shape them into strong leaders, managers and/or future business owners. Those who rely on shaping their management skills through on-the-job experiential learning often learn the hard way – through mistakes that might have cost them a large client or a high-performing employee.

I am ready to see significant growth within my organization, but am looking for guidance and accountability to take on the challenges that will make a difference.

The best way to achieve your lofty business goals is to work one-to-one with a business coach. Business coaching is very similar to sports coaching. In sports, a coach pushes an athlete to achieve optimum performance, provides support when they are exhausted and teaches the athlete to execute plays that their competition does not anticipate. A sports coach will make you run more laps and make you work harder than you would on your own, even when you don’t feel like it. A sports coach will tell it like it is and they will listen.

A Business Coach does many of the same things, but in a way that is focused on creating a successful business. The role of a business coach is to coach you through guidance, support, accountability and encouragement. Business coaching helps owners of small and medium-sized businesses with their sales, marketing, management, team building and so much more. Most importantly, just like a sporting coach, your business coach will make you focus on the game. Learn more about one-to-one coaching.
