If you are a business owner, whether you are a sole trader or owner/partner of a larger company, you will always benefit from working alongside a Business Coach. The benefits are varied, large and small, expected and unexpected.
I say this as an experienced business owner (I have been self-employed for almost 20 years) and also as an experienced Business Coach – this has been my business for the last 10 years.
In the early days of running a business it can be exciting, challenging, inspiring, motivating and certainly never dull. It can also be worrying, daunting, overwhelming, frustrating and downright scary. As the business progresses the challenges may vary but the results that need to be achieved remain the same.
Since 2003 I have worked with business owners who are just starting out, those who have been running their own business for a few years and those who have been doing so for many years.
Whatever stage you are at in your business, there is always room for improvement.
No doubt you would be the first to agree with this statement? However, it is working out HOW to improve that can be the biggest challenge of all. You probably know the theories well enough, get more clients, look after the existing ones well, work to gain more income from those existing clients and so on. But what if you are already doing all of this but still need to be more profitable?
It is true that we are ALL too close to our own situation to be able to see things in a new light, to work out what we
need to do less of and what we need to do more of. It may sound simple put like this, but you do need to ask yourself these questions regularly. And if you’re too busy to think, let alone to ask yourself questions, then this is another reason you need to invest in some external support, via a Business Coach.
The support and experience of a Business Coach will ensure that you step up and really take control of your business. Business Coaching keeps you accountable, keeps you focused and ensures that you remain motivated and
committed, acting on the important tasks and not getting waylaid by the minutiae of life.
Many business owners work all of the hours just to get ‘everything’ done…
But are they really getting ‘everything’ done or just the things that are shouting the loudest at them?
In my experience they are completing the ‘noisiest’ activities and leaving the business growth and development behind as they do not have time for planning, organisation, thinking ahead or even breathing on some days.
So, if you can relate to any of the above and are wondering, how can a Business Coach be a beneficial and worthwhile investment for you and your business, here are some of the outcomes that you will achieve:
- Keep you focused
- Keep you accountable
- Keep you motivated
- Keep you setting targets and achieving them
- Keep you confident in yourself and your ability
You will also be able to deal effectively with any negative gremlins / self-talk which may be sabotaging your success in numerous ways. And I can assure you that the feeling of knowing there is someone there working alongside you, guiding you but not telling you what to do (no-one wants to be told) is priceless. These outcomes and feelings are difficult to obtain alone.
