Did you know that 70% of business owners who use coaches will survive in business twice as long as those who don’t?
Coaching is a mutually beneficial relationship forged between a more experienced business person and someone who is less experienced to help them to achieve their goals and boost their morale.
When undertaken effectively, it offers benefits to both parties, but it is first and foremost a supportive and encouraging relationship that focuses on the needs of the executive being coached.
With coaching, the developing entrepreneur is guided and supported so they can reach their highest potential.
For example, during his early days immersed in growing Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg consulted with mentor and coach Sean Parker and was noted as saying: “Few people are as smart as he is.”
The top benefits of having a coach for your business include:
- Exposure to new ways of thinking
- A new perspective on challenges you’re facing
- Someone to ‘lend an ear’ when you need to vent or talk through your thought processes
- Advice on how to develop your strengths and overcome your weaknesses
- Strategies for growing your business
- An opportunity to gain knowledge and develop new skills
- The possibility of increased recognition and visibility within your industry through networking
- Increased confidence
Coaching is also beneficial in a wider sense because it can act as a strategic way to develop and nurture active partnerships within your business community. Not only will individuals benefit from coaching, but so could the entire company, through improved staff morale and engagement, enhanced management leadership skills, and strengthened company culture.
Even the most well-known entrepreneurs, including Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, had coaches.
Because of the time commitment involved and the fact that benefits can take time to materialise, James Spurway is only interested in taking on a new client if the minimum commitment is for at least 6 months.
The minimum upfront financial commitment is two days @ US$4,999 a day.
I will add in additional value such as holding Team Training sessions with the complete Executive or Leadership Teams, Sales Training for the CEO, and any assistance required on Digital Marketing Training.
