How A Business Coaching Program Works
A structured approach to grow your business
A business coaching program is a carefully designed approach, working with a business coach, to drive sales and profit growth.
It achieves this by building your skills and confidence as an entrepreneur, installing the most effective approaches into your business.
It's easy to become confused by all of the options available to change your business. A business coaching program provides a proven, clear plan to drive you and your business quickly towards your goals.
Too many people have made business too complicated - this approach gives you confidence that you're on a path that's already been walked successfully by many other business owners before you.
Moving your thinking up the ladder from just doing being a worker-bee, through managing work and into business leadership is the path to an ever-growing business.
If you spend all of your time doing hands-on type work, then your business is unlikely to really ever change, is it? It doesn't matter if you're a builder or an accountant, a shop-owner or an engineer. If you spend all of your time working with clients, or working with your hands, then your business will remain stuck because you're too busy to make it grow.
If you manage your business - looking after your team, scheduling work, talking to suppliers, changing utility provider, dealing with issues and so on, you've got a similar problem. A manager coordinates and organises the work. But management alone does not grow the business.
If you have ambitions for growth, you need to allocate time to focus on developing, improving and growing your business. This is quite different from the important but routine work of keeping everything running smoothly.
The first step to making change happen is deciding where you really want your business to be.
Your business coaching program starts by comparing your ideal future business with where you are currently stuck. The gap between the two areas then becomes the gap that must be closed with the help of business coaching.
In practice the business coaching program is rarely a simple exercise in moving from A to B, but a cycle of introducing new ideas and methods and testing them out.
Over time, you tune these to optimise them for the specifics of your business. Rinse and repeat for long enough and your business reaches your goals.
