A business coach will assist and guide the business owner in running a business by helping them clarify the vision of their business and how it fits in with their personal goals.
A critical component of business coaching is accountability. You will never see a football coach run laps of the field for their team. The very same fact is true of a business coach. A business coach is not a consultant. They will not do the work for you in your business. They are there to keep you focused on the end result and remind you why it is important to you.
HOW COULD A CAREER COACH HELP ME?
If you do choose to seek career coaching from a professional, you may discover the following:
- Help you determine your core values and non-negotiables
- Motivate you to keep your commitments
- Be that sounding board and help you get out of your own way
- Highlight your business and personal blind spots
WHAT DOES A TYPICAL SESSION LOOK LIKE?
Coaching sessions are very flexible and you can have a session from the comfort of your home, dorm
room, hotel or internet café over the phone, online or face-to-face. Whichever format you choose; in your
first session you will identify the topic(s) in which you want to cover in your upcoming
sessions and this can change based on your needs – you determine the topic.
Your first session is about 60 mins to determine your agreement and what you want to
achieve at the end of your session’s agreement. Each session thereafter is between 45-60 mins. based on
your desires. Session agreements can also range from 1 session to 6 sessions based on what you’d
like to accomplish.
