Are you confused about all the talk about business coaching and sick of people telling you that you need help with your business? There are many owners that had the same perspective that have seen tremendous success through business coaching. In this article, we’ll discuss how we really help business owners.

Common Questions About Business Coaching 

  • What is business coaching?
  • Why do I need business coaching?
  • How is business coaching beneficial?
  • Who should get business coaching?
  • Does business coaching really work?

Business coaching may seem like a new and trendy thing, but it’s actually been around for a very long time.

ActionCOACH, the first in the industry, started over 30 years ago and has expanded rapidly since then. ActionCOACH is very unique in that it is a franchise that has a global reach with coaches in over 300 countries.

This means that business coaching is not only transforming businesses in America, but all over the world.

We are all familiar with what coaching is in the setting of sports as providing guidance and development to support a learner to achieve a specific goal.

The same is true about business coaching in which we come alongside business owners who have a vision for the business that they are having trouble achieving. We provide an outside perspective on issues they can improve while addressing the concerns the business owners have.

Now here’s what the difference between business coaching and consulting is. Unlike a consultant, we don’t lay out a complex plan and then leave you to achieve it on your own. A coach helps you strategize solutions that are unique to your business and continues to support and guide you in implementing them. Because ultimately things in your business are always changing and we help to adjust to those changes while still working towards the vision you have for your business.

Reasons You May Need a Business Coach

Another misconception about business coaching is that it is only for struggling businesses. Those that are close to closing their doors. But in reality, all great business leaders have a business coach, with some prime examples being Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.

Business coaching is for anyone who wants more for their business and wants to sustain their business in ever-changing times.

It is ideal for business owners who want to keep up with innovation in the industry and not be left behind because of outdated systems and practices.

Here are some reasons you may need business coaching:

  • Your business growth has plateaued (you’re not seeing an increase in revenue or profits)
  • You have trouble hiring and retaining great employees.
  • Your business is growing so rapidly that you cannot keep up.
  • You never have enough time to achieve the things you want to in a day.
