What is Business Coaching?
Having a business coach is like having a best friend and a biggest critic … It’s never easy getting an objective answer from yourself about your own business! Your business coach will always say how it is! Your business coach is someone you can discuss business strategy with, help you develop plans and bounce ideas off. They will hold you to account and ensure that you are able to give your business real direction.
What do we find?
Many SME owner managers began their business out of a love for what they do, to get away from the corporate world or because an opportunity arose. Very often they are technically good, the gifted sales person or an entrepreneur with an idea. They don’t have a background in business processes or knowledge of how to get the best out of their businesses.
How can we help?
Our Business Coaches have a hands-on approach. They can help you clarify your vision, your strategy and goals, challenge your thinking and hold you to account so that you drive your business towards success. They are there to give you real world support and personal guidance to help you grow your business profitably and achieve your personal goals.
