Branson, Jobs and Page all received outside support from some form of coach or mentor at a relatively early stage in their careers – and this invaluable outsider perspective has been credited by each man with helping them achieve a greater level of success. A survey carried out recently by the Federation of Small Businesses, for example, found that the five-year survival rate among companies which had used some form of coaching or advice was 70% — twice as high as the rate among all firms.
Working with a great coach is like having a guide alongside you on your journey. Someone to help you work out the best route, someone that can give you that extra push when you need it most, someone you can talk to when you need to make sense of what’s in front of you, in order to move forward.
Coaching will help you take a step back and reassess where you are going and why. Most of the clients I work with find the focus that coaching gives them extremely valuable. Business does not have to be complex. Clear, meaningful and relevant goals are useful filters for making decisions and allocating resources.
It doesn’t have to be this way. I help all my clients structure their businesses in a way that enables them to get their lives back. If you want to sell your business one day, or would like to have the time freedom to do what you want, when you want, your business must become an independent entity
In addition to creating momentum, an experienced coach will have a wealth of tools, frameworks and processes that you can adapt and use in your business to speed up implementation.
All of my coaching is done on a 1-1 basis and is completely bespoke to each client I work with. To have a conversation about how coaching can help you take your business to the next level, click below.
