Can a Business Coach Really Make My Company Grow?

Apr 24, 2008
"Business coach"" may not be a familiar term to you but you'll find by doing a Google search that it's getting more and more popular all the time. You may not actually understand what the term means and how a business coach can help you so we'll answer those questions and more in this feature.

A business coach, similar to a sports coach, is an outside party, who can help you focus on your strengths and work on your weaknesses. A coach does not have to have a degree, although there are some certification programs. To make the most of your coaching, the coach you choose should have some background in what you need help in.

If you want to make more money with your website, your best coaching option would be someone who has already experienced success with internet marketing. Likewise, if you were in direct sales and wanted to create more income in that field, you would look for someone who has a lot of face-to-face sales experience, preferably someone with a direct sales background.

A business coach will help you with plans to help you reach your business goals. Because they don't really know you, they are open with you and tell you if your ideas are good or bad. They can help you pinpoint the important parts of your business that you will need to work on and recommend which to let go of.

A business coach will hold you accountable to your goals. He will want to discuss the results if you said you were going to do something or ask why you didn't want to work when you knew you should.

Sometimes you can get the incentive that you might need to do a good job just by knowing that there's someone to account back to. They can help you keep organized and create a work schedule to help you.

A business coach can also help offset the isolation that you may feel as someone who works from home. Since you don't have a group of co-workers to brainstorm with, a business coach can help to fill that spot. Hopefully, the coach you chose will have been exactly where you are at in your business and can give you advice on how to handle flat spots as well as growth.

By choosing a good coach and listening to them and carrying out any suggestions that they might have, you should be able to see a change in your business in a relatively brief period of time.
