What is a Business Coach?

How can your Business Benefit from Consulting?

Like your coach in school sports, a business coach guides you, mentors you, and gets you to do the things you need to do to bring your business to the next level, which you are not doing. A business coach will at times take you out of your comfort zone to achieve what you have never been able to achieve before. Like that school coach that showed you what to do, then observed you as you tried that exercise or drill the first time, gave you advice on how to do it better, and then was there to celebrate your success with you, a business coach is with you every step of the way.

Today professional and Olympic athletes in every sport have coaches to help them bring their game to the next level, as do their competitors. In business, many successful business people, both owners of companies and executives of large corporations, have consultants/ coaches to give them as much of a strategic advantage as possible.

When you work with a business coach or consultant (hopefully ROI Business Coach in Milford!), you receive a business education while using your business as the beneficiary of your work. MBA schools typically focuses on what you need to know to succeed in the corporate world. An education with a business coach prepares you with the knowledge, skills and experience in your own business, so you can succeed as an entrepreneur or intrepreneur (or corporate entrepreneur).

When working with a business coach, by getting you to think differently, you will take different actions, resulting in a more successful business while you accelerate both your growth as a business person, and the growth of your business. The know ledge, skills and experience you gain can be used both in your current business, and in future businesses.

Types of Business Owners that Utilize Business Coaches and Consultants

My experiene as a Business Coach/ Consultant stems from years of working with Milford, CT area businesses. We have found that businesses tend to have challenges holding them and their businesses back in one of the following three areas:

  • Team/Energy – Your team will either energize you or drain you of energy. The net result is that you are either getting more accomplished in your business than in the past, or you are asking yourself if you should replace members of your team because they are costing you far more than their salaries. Often business owners have taken their teams as far as they believe they can take them. The owners don’t know what to do next to get their teams, and as a result their companies, to the level that they owners envision for their businesses.

  • Focus/Time – Either you are not sure what you need to do to bring your business to the next level, or you know what to do, but can’t seem to get you and/or your company to do it. You may have tried many different strategies, but nothing seems to work. You never seem to have enough time to get everything done that you need to get done.

  • Profit/Sales ­– You are just not making enough money from your business to pay all your bills at home. You could make more money working for someone else, but it would be in a job you just don’t want. Sales went down during the Great Recession, but still have not gotten back to previous levels.
