The business and executive coaching industry has gained momentum over the 11 years that I have been actively coaching clients. The mystery of what we do is slowly disappearing, yet one of the most common myths about coaching is still prevalent: that coaching is for under-performing businesses and individuals who need rescuing!
On the contrary, our most successful business and executive coaching clients are the ones who are performing well but want to perform better! Isn’t it true that often those who need the most help are the most reluctant to ask for it? Conversely, we find that successful businesses and owners are the most engaging and receptive to business coaching programmes.
My discussions around a braai with people who ask what I do often end up focusing on who my clients are and why they are being coached. Business coaching achieves results for business owners who resonate with the following statements:
“I AM READY TO LEARN MORE”
If you are not growing, you are dying. To grow, you need to learn, but often you don’t know where to begin. Let a coach work with you to identify your growth areas and point you in the right direction.
“I’VE LOST MY MOJO”
Business owners who have been doing the same thing for a long time often lose their passion for their business. We work with these owners to reignite personal dreams and use their businesses to achieve their individual goals.
“I WORK TOO HARD AND EARN TOO LITTLE!”
There doesn’t seem to be enough time in a day to get through all the work, and you are not banking nearly enough money to justify your efforts. We will get you focused on making more productive and profitable use of your time.
“I HAVE A DREAM”
You know what you want, you have confidence in your ability and now you need to take action to achieve it. You can’t do it on your own and need an independent sounding board to keep you on the path to success.
“NOTHING HAPPENS UNLESS I DO IT!”
Business owners often end up with a day to day “job” in their own business. We work with business owners like you to build a team and put systems in place to run your business without you.
“IT’S LONELY AT THE TOP”
Your friends and family are supportive, but you need someone to mentor you, hold you accountable, hold up a mirror to your blind spots, be a sounding board, push you, cajole you and congratulate you.
If you recognise yourself in any of the above statements, give me a call and I will offer you a complimentary coaching session so you can see for yourself if coaching will help you achieve more.
Have a great weekend.
