Business Coaching Auckland & Wellington
Business coaching is the process of providing impartial and results-oriented support, feedback and advice to an individual, team or organisation in order to help them identify ways in which they can improve their performance and the effectiveness of their business.
Why Business Coaching?
While many businesses turn to outside help during difficult periods, utilising a business coach is certainly not a sign of failure or an indication that you are underperforming. Elite athletes, sports teams and celebrities surround themselves by coaches and advisors in order to help set and achieve their goals.
These people recognise the value of a good coach for improving their techniques, strategies and focus. They understand that they do not have all of the answers themselves and that an experienced and skilled coach can assist them to identify where their strengths lie, where they need to improve, and how to get to where they want to be.
An effective business coach encourages and supports their client to reach further and to achieve more by:
- providing impartial insight and new perspectives
- listening and allowing the client to express and resolve their concerns and doubts
- assisting the client to set and achieve their goals
- imparting honest and practical feedback
- offering reassurance and guidance
- testing and challenging the client
Being coached is a very demanding process and is not an easy fix. Effective business coaches expect and obtain a lot from their clients and the process requires honesty and discipline from both sides. A good business coach challenges their clients in a straightforward and uncompromising way to help them achieve their goals. Ultimately however, business coaching is extremely fulfilling and is a sound investment in your company’s future.
