What will a Business Coach do for my Business?
Happy New Year! As you set forth to make 2018 your best year yet (or at least better than 2017), you may have considered hiring a business coach to help you achieve your business goals. Have you ever wondered what a business coach can do for your business?
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 business owners 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.
Being an owner can be a lonely job. A business coach acts as a sounding board, a business mentor, a friend to talk with you and provide expert opinions, helping you to solve your problems and turn them into opportunities.
Creating accountability and focus is just a small part of what business coaches do, but often it can be the most valuable. Learn more about how a business coach can help you reach your business goals:
- Getting more returns with less work.
Is your business affording you time away? Are you working too many hours? If you left for a vacation or holiday, would things operate anywhere near as effectively as they do now? A business coach will show you how to grow a sustainable business that can continue to go on without you. They can teach you how to better delegate, to plan ahead to work ahead, and to set boundaries of when and how to be contacted during your absence.
- Creating more profit.
If you are not making anywhere near enough money to justify the effort, risk and investment you’re putting into your business, it’s time to turn that around! With literally 282 profit and money-making strategies, an Accelerate ActionCOACH can help coach you in sales, marketing, advertising, profit growth, business systems, time management and team building strategies to jump-start your revenue in a matter of months. And unlike a business consultant who does the work for you, a business coach will teach you how to get the results your organization needs.
- Developing your team.
Are you ready to build or develop a team of people that can grow the business whether you’re there or not? Recruiting, training and retaining the best people makes your life so much easier. Building and training a team of motivated, passionate performers are all part of the programs that a business coach can help you implement.
- A business coach will help you rediscover your passion.
Do you need a little help to fall back in love with your business again? A business coach will help you rediscover the vision and passion you had when you first started. Motivation and clarity are at the core of all Accelerate ActionCOACH programs. Whether you work from home, are just starting off, or run a multi-million dollar organization, a business coach is one of the fastest ways to a better business and a better lifestyle.
- A business coach will help you navigate changes in the economy and your market.
You know that in order to grow you need to be constantly learning, however, you don’t have time to keep up with your own industry changes let alone the changes in global business. Business education has moved into a new realm, with business mentoring and business coaching taking over from traditional consulting, books and seminars so you get the right information at the right time. Think of it as an entrepreneurial degree using your company as a case study.
