The most beautiful thing in the world is, precisely, the conjunction of learning and inspiration. ~ Wanda Landowska
Many executives and entrepreneurs focus each day on operating their business. Whether it is dealing with clients, solving problems, or cash flow issues. The day to day operations rarely let up and it is difficult to focus on bigger picture strategic items from business planning and goal setting to creative thinking.
My business coaching program is meant to provide a dedicated time and focused space to address strategic and long term planning. By having some outside reflections and new ways of looking at problems, we open up new possibilities together. Sometimes having a trusted friend and confidante is just the elixir required to build back that entrepreneurial spirit and focus (refocus) our energies towards the right objectives.
How does it work?
It begins with a conversation. Usually, in a one-hour initial conversation, we can really cut out much noise and get to the heart of identifying problems, identifying potential solutions, and discussing ways we might begin to address and implement the above. This is complimentary! I mean it, I have vast respect for business owners and why I will give any business owner an hour of my time to learn about their business and how we might work together.
What is next?
My typical coaching program involves a weekly one hour video or conference call. I use this time with my clients to focus on the strategic problems that are hindering growth. More often than not we are discussing sales activity, product development, and marketing initiatives.
As an independent and outside listening post, I can usually avoid the minutia of the day to day issues a business is facing and rather quickly, get to the underlying currents that are driving the entire business. Sometimes we only need a few weeks to really make headway, other times we create an on-going, long-term commitment to meeting regularly and having a wholesome discussion on where the business is at, where it is heading, and is it on the right track.
Many coaching assignments will include deliverables such as writing or updating a business plan or developing planning documents in specific areas such as sales, marketing, or finance. As we work together we collaborate and determine key actions and deliverables together. I play the role I can to help advance your business.
Let’s begin with that one-hour complimentary conversation. Contact me and we will schedule some time and go from there.
