Business coaches come in an array of specialties. What the best have in common is the ability to combine industry-specific knowledge with universal best practices that can be applied through a series of coaching and training sessions. And through that combination, help you envision and achieve the success that has remained out of reach or too difficult to attain.
We recently showed you the difference between business and executive coaches and how to find the right coach for you. In this article, we’ll focus on business coaches and what separates the best from the rest.
What the Best Business Coaches Do
The best business coaches know best practices across all businesses and will provide deep insight into one or more business types. They also do more than recommend best practices based on their years of experience. They ask great questions, getting you to think, learn and make lasting changes that impact your decisions, actions, quality of life, and your business.
Because they are invested in your success, an exceptional business coach will help you:
- See your practice from a new perspective
- Set achievable goals that move you toward success
- Improve service and retention of clients
- Develop your firm’s leadership and systems so that it runs itself
They will also help you recognize and develop the business skills you need to be successful and overcome your challenges. You may need to learn how to delegate tasks or manage your projects so that they are profitable while earning client satisfaction and the word of mouth that is so important to building a business.
You might not know how to grow your business, tackle changes in your industry, or put together a team that will not require so much of your own time.
Outstanding business coaches share the guidance you need in any or all of these areas. You’ll understand why these areas matter and how to master them.
When you are evaluating prospective coaches, here’s what should expect of the best of them:
- They have the awards to back up their promises
- They have a proven system of coaching
- They measure their results
If a candidate can share these with you, and if they can prove they know your business and are dedicated to helping you improve, there’s a good chance you’ve found a long-term partner who can share the advice you’ll need across the twists and turns of running a business.
