As a business owner, how do you define success for your company and, as critically, for you?

 

To achieve that success, you, as a business owner, often require solid and objective input on issues you confront in your day-to-day operations.  Whether you’re the owner of a small, medium-sized or large company, whether you’ve just started up your company or are well-established, whether you work solo or with one or a number of partners, whether you work from an office, a plant, from home, or in any other location, the issues you face on a daily basis are largely universal.  Wouldn’t it be great to run your business, rather than have it run you?

 

In today’s business environment, the competition is brutal, the game is tougher, the stakes are higher, and the client/customer expectations often seem insurmountable.  How do you handle all these issues without feeling completely overwhelmed, while attempting to carve out a life beyond your business?  So often, there’s no one within your organization to whom you can turn for answers.  Given this reality, such advice is often best sought from external sources, which is typically the role a business coach fulfills.

 

Some of the issues often handled in a coaching relationship with business owners include:

  • New business start-up concerns
  • Development of a strategic business plan appropriate for your current status
  • Time management and organization
  • Cash flow, profitability, financial planning
  • Succession planning
  • Effective business development and networking/marketing strategies
  • New client/customer acquisition and retention
  • Maintaining service and product quality
  • Acquisition, capitalization, and retention of best talent
  • Employment/HR issues
  • Management and leadership concerns
  • Motivational strategies to maximize employee buy-in and firm morale
  • Engendering effective communication within all levels of your firm
  • Operational and project management
  • Increasing productivity
  • Work delegation
  • Team building
  • Goal setting
  • Reputation enhancement within your industry
  • Creating ways to carve out a fulfilling personal life (when your work week could easily never end)
  • And the list goes on…

 

But, most critically, the key to achieving business success is having someone to whom you can comfortably reach out for honest, objective business advice, knowing that they have both the expertise and the objectivity to appropriately guide you.


A coach provides the priceless commodity of honesty – serving as a non-judgmental sounding board, and offering expert and effective business guidance with objectivity.  How invaluable to have someone in your corner with whom you can have open confidential dialogue, to whom you can reach out for guidance, and to whom you’re accountable to stay on track, all the while knowing they have no agenda other than to support you in reaching your desired level of success.

 

An invaluable investment for your business success, wouldn't you say?
