Business coaching is is one of those things you don’t think you need until you’ve had it. If you are looking for a partner, mentor and resource to help your business grow, then we are going to get along great.
I’ll admit, before I got coached for the first time, I was a skeptic. I kept thinking… “How is this person gonna tell me how to run my business.” The truth is, it’s not about that. It’s about creating goals, documenting processes, and identifying areas that need improvement, and the most important thing, creating a system of accountability.
If you are looking for a dedicated one-on-one coaching experience this is the option for you. You will meet with your dedicated coach 2 times per month and receive additional time for them to review your work and provide feedback.
There are different package options available and all one-to-one coaching packages include benefits like access to networking events, DISC profiles and FREE quarterly planning workshops.
Group coaching gives you all the knowledge and resources as one-on-one, but at a fraction of the price. Groups allow for shared time with me and other business owners as we tackle the process as a team.
This is a great opportunity to learn from other businesses as well as expand your network. Each group offers something unique for your business.
Looking to learn more about what coaching can do for your business? These workshops are a great opportunity to learn some business basics and network with other local business owners.
Each workshop is unique, but both offer free tools to help create structure and drive revenue in your company.
Looking for more structure? I offer a number of group curriculum programs. These can be internal to your company only, or you can join a group with other business owners.
All of these programs have specific curriculum that is covered in each session. Most groups meet at least once a month and require work outside of the group. The biggest benefit to these programs is learning from other businesses and networking.
The number and combination of the strategies that you implement during the program will depend on their size and complexity and your ability to undertake the workload involved. The order and priority of your strategies will be identified by you and your Coach during the Business Alignment process, but may change during the program in accordance with the needs of your business.
