What is Business Coaching?
Coaching is about personal empowerment and can create huge change. It will enable you to be continually motivated, focused and energised to get the most out of your life; whilst having fun
Business Coaching is an effective partnership based on mutual trust and respect. The impartial guidance of a professional coach enables you to see new possibilities and encourages you to develop your own solutions and answers. Coaching will ensure you remain on track so you can create and consistently achieve inspirational goals and adopt a winning attitude to excel in your field.
The structure of coaching provides a safe, non-judgemental place to explore ideas, question limiting beliefs and overcome internal/external barriers. It also supports you to challenge your existing goals; ensuring they are right for you and your business to avoid costly mistakes. This level of clarity will enable you to surpass your personal expectations and achieve even more.
Mentoring is often confused with coaching. Whilst mentoring is based on telling, teaching and advising, coaching encourages you to apply your existing knowledge and resources to your best advantage. It is therefore unnecessary for a coach to be experienced in your field.
Coaching is also about fulfilling your ambitions rather than settling for second best. Clients who are serious about their success achieve the best results because they are comfortable with uncertainty and do whatever it takes to reach the next level. It doesn’t matter where you have been or where you are now, it’s where you want to go that is important.
How does Business Coaching work?
All coaching sessions will involve a line of questioning that is uncommon in many coaching practices; because they are based on Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques. They will challenge you to fully evaluate your current position, your future ambitions/goals and perceived or real barriers to your success. This will give you absolute focus and a clear vision of where you want your business to be.
Each session will be one to one, at an agreed location, and the agenda will be decided by you; to increase responsibility and ownership. By establishing the facts we will concentrate on the solutions; rather than the problem. We can then navigate the best path to reach your ultimate outcomes. Using NLP methods, you will learn how to set and create inspirational goals in a way that you will consistently achieve them; provided you focus on what you want to achieve and take the agreed, specific actions.
Initial Telephone Consultation (30 mins)
This involves an informal telephone conversation to discuss your current situation and determine your expectations and needs. The various packages and methods of coaching will also be discussed so that you can decide on the best route for you.
First Coaching Session (Up to 3 Hours)
This session will include discussing and jointly signing a Coaching Agreement to ensure 100% commitment on both sides. You will also complete a number of relevant processes which are based on fact finding to ensure you achieve the best possible results. These processes are inspirational and increase success and profitability.
Subsequent Sessions (1 hour minimum)
Each session will be tailored to your individual needs. By continually monitoring your progress, and giving honest feedback, we will celebrate successes, explore obstacles, refocus attention, set and agree new goals and action plans. This will ensure you consistently achieve your goals and create a compelling future for you and your business.
