The Top 5 Benefits of Working With a Business Coach

A popular question prospects ask when considering hiring a business coach is…..”What will I get from working with you?” 

The following Top 5 Benefits are taken directly from comments made by my clients on what they have received from coaching together.

First – Clarity.  We take the time to create an image of your ideal business situation.  Who is your ideal client?  How many do you need?  Where can you find them?  Once things are defined we know where we are going.  It’s not just putting out fires and working hard each day, it’s working toward something we can envision.

Second – Values.  What are your values?  Can you actually write them down? The most successful business owners incorporate their values throughout all they do, including their business interactions.  Once you articulate your values you can instill them in your business and if you have employees, ensure they conduct business the way you would.    

Third – Goal Setting.  What are your goals?  Are they to grow your business, improve profits, or ready your business for sale as your exit strategy?  Once you know your goals, you know where to focus.    

Fourth – Milestones.  How do you get from where your business is today to where you’d like it to be?  In achieving most goals there are steps to take along the way.  These are called Milestones.  They are the stepping stones to get to the ultimate goal.  When you know the next milestone, you know more preciously where to step when options, distractions and detours are placed in front of you.

Fifth – Balance.  My clients tell me they acheive better Balance in their work and in their life.  I can see they are less stressed.  They know what they want to achieve, they know what their values are which guide them in their decision making, they have set goals, they know the next step to take, and they sleep better.  Priorities are in line.  I see them relax and enjoy work and life more.

Do any of these resonate with you?  I’d be happy to talk to you about your issues and how business coaching may be a benefit.
