You’ve seen the ads, “get a business coach.” But why should you spend your hard earned money on something that you aren’t even sure you need? Because it works. Coaching is as important in business as it is in sports: for skill improvement, goal setting and accountability.
A business coach is a person that can help you in business. A business coach, much like a sports coach, moves you forward in business by helping you to set and achieve goals, while pointing out areas that you should stop working on because they aren’t important or moving you forward.
Your coach will make you do things that you know you should, but don’t because they aren’t the “fun” part of your business. He or she will make you a winner.
Your business coach will help you improve your skills. Everyone has areas where they can and should improve. They will find these areas and help you become better. Areas like client development or finance management. They will help you plan for your business and solve problems that pop up. Things like delegating responsibility or procrastination. By doing this, you will be able to set more challenging goals and reach them. They will focus on you and your business by listening and asking questions. He or she may help you think of a goal that you hadn’t considered, or thought was too challenging, then help you map the path to get there.
Most importantly, a business coach will hold you accountable. Accountability is extremely important because all of the things listed above are things that you know you should do. If you did them you wouldn’t be thinking about needing a coach, since your business would be booming. They will work with you to find out what you need to do, then keep after you until you do it. They will be that voice in your head making you pick up the phone to prospect, or network more. Your coach is in your corner.
If you want to be successful in business, a business coach is a must and should be considered as a “tool” to use. Looking for a GREAT BUSINESS COACH? Give us a call today to find out how ActionCOACH Tampa Bay can help you achieve your goals! 727-786-2900
