Our Business Coaching

What is Coaching?

Generally speaking, coaching is an opened door to a partnership that helps you to reach your personal and professional goals. Coaching is an action oriented relationship that offers insights, increased self-awareness, focus and accountability.

What is Business Coaching?

Business coaching is the practice of providing positive support and positive feedback while offering occasional advice to an individual or group in order to help them recognize ways in which they can improve the effectiveness of their business. Coaching is an excellent way to attain a certain work behavior that will improve leadership, employee accountability, teamwork, sales, communication, goal setting, strategic planning and more. It can be provided in a number of ways, including one-on-one, group coaching sessions and large scale [seminars]. Many corporations are instilling the practice of 360 degree coaching, which permits employees to utilize their own life or professional experiences in a positive way to create team participation attitudes even with superiors. Professional Business Coaches are often called in when a business is perceived to be performing badly, however many businesses recognize the benefits of business coaching even when the organization is successful. Business coaches often specialize in different practice areas such as executive coaching, corporate coaching and leadership coaching.

Mentoring Vs. Business Coaching

Business coaching is not the same as mentoring. Mentoring involves a developmental relationship between a more experienced "mentor" and a less experienced partner, and typically involves sharing of advice. A business coach can act as a mentor given that he or she has adequate expertise and experience. However, mentoring is not a form of business coaching. A good business coach need not have specific business expertise and experience in the same field as the person receiving the coaching in order to provide quality business coaching services. Business coaching needs to be more structured and formal than mentoring.

The Purpose of Business Coaches

Business coaches often help businesses grow by creating and following a structured, strategic plan to achieve agreed upon goals. Multiple organizations train professionals to offer business coaching to business owners who may not be able to afford large coaching firm prices.

Coaching is not a practice restricted to external experts. Many organizations expect their senior leaders and middle managers to coach their team members toward higher levels of performance, increased job satisfaction, personal growth, and career development. Those that do back up their expectations with training in coaching skills, access to feedback tools, and/or specific coaching behaviors described in their leadership competency models. Few link coaching activities to compensation, however, resulting in less coaching by managers.

Why Do You Need Business Coaching?

If you're a professional thinking about starting a business and assume you can use the same skill set that you have used in an established business to get your business started; you will fail. To be successful in starting and growing a business requires a different skill set than the one that has earned you success in your current profession.

You may feel quite new to business ventures and feel that you need help building a plan, a strategy or even finding a sarting point to build your business.

Maybe you have an existing small business but, you feel as though you need to be inspired again, or you want your business to run itself, earning profits whether you are there to work it or not. We can help you in sales development, marketing, lead generation, profit growth, business infrastructure, time management and team building strategies.

Perhaps you are ready to invest into your people or membership (if you are a nonprofit) or you see yourself as a leader vs a manager and need help develop your vision. The key to this type of success is creating a proces for recruiting, training and retention.


Maybe you want to be the best you can be and desire accountability. You want a person to understand you more than you understand yourself and want to be pushed beyond what you believe you are capable of doing yourself, and you want a friend to help pick you up and help you learn from your mistakes, while being a safety net and provide expert coaching, helping you to solve your problems and turn them into opportunities.

It's important to create an infrastructure that allows for the following:

Shared Vision 
Shared Mission 
Shared Values
Leveraged Strengths
Grow Capacities
