Why Hire a Business Coach?

Business Coaching is not Mentoring or Teaching!

Business Coaching is based on the Coach having a deep belief in your ability to grow and through a coaching relationship helping you realize your goals, personal growth and achievement of the business success you are seeking.

The question is not ‘is there a return on investment from business coaching?’; but rather ‘how big will the ROI be?’. Recognizing that you will unquestionably grow and expand your capabilities as a leader/manager to the benefit of yourself, your team, your business and your family is the first step in transformational change.

What is Business Coaching?

  • Business Coaching is unique. It is helping individuals to prioritize their conscious thoughts about the immediate actions needed to address specific business issues, and to develop an understanding of the unconscious processes that may be sabotaging their success. Stout-Rostron (2014)
  • Coaching is about ‘Getting-the-Best’ out of yourself.
  • It is about the results experienced through the dynamic relationship between the Coach and Client, and how those results impact individual, team and organizational performance.

Who Benefits from Coaching?

  • Simple answer is: Everyone!
  • In a more existential way, it is high performers looking for greater self-awareness and personal performance.
  • Those seeking the ability to manage the stresses that invariably exist from balancing work and personal life in the midst of a highly competitive and challenging business world.
  • Business owners & executives who see leadership as a continual process and a necessary function of overall business management.
  • Highly committed and energized people looking to elevate their success.

How I see coaching working effectively

Your Coach’s questions create insight from the answers you give

We all have the ability to ‘figure things out’. Sometimes, however, well placed questions cause us to unlock thoughts, solutions or ideas we previously had not considered.

Coaching questions should generate Insight!

Your Coach unlocks growth in your capacity

Coaching should challenge you and stretch you in ways that breakthrough your own limiting beliefs which may be holding you back.

Coaching should lead to Personal Growth!

Your Coach helps with perspective

Coaches should have demonstrated business and life experience which, when drawn upon, helps provide perspective.

Coaching should allow for shifts in awareness!

Your Coach drives you to take personal responsibility for your actions

Often business owners or executives have few people providing objective accountability. Often the reality is that you are responsible for holding your own feet to the fire.

Coaching must challenge you to remain accountable to what you have said is important!

Your Coach creates a trusting environment

Coaching cannot be effective outside an environment of trust. You must trust that your coach has your and your business’s best interest at heart. Your Coach should take a personal interest in your life, both in your business and personally. Coaching is a personal relationship.

Coaching should lead to a vested, non-equity partnership role in your success!

So... Why Hire a Coach?

That answer is personal to everyone, but essentially what my clients have told me is they hired me because they recognized they wanted to invest in themselves, get an accountability partner, obtain experienced objectivity to help eliminate their blind spots, improve their own effectiveness and success and essentially allow for growth, awareness, clarity and personal enjoyment from their business/career…and from their life.
