Coaching in Business Gives YOU the Edge
Now, we’ve all heard of a coach in terms of a football team, a single athlete or even an entertainer. But for a business owner? That’s a new one!
But as businesses have moved into the new millennium, the rapid expansion of the communication and IT industries have changed the way we all doÂ business. As markets become globalized and competition increases, consumers have greater choice.
More and more business owners are looking for that edge or fine-tuning that can make the difference in their business.Â They are beginning to look outside of their regular resources for the information and guidance they need. They realize that they need to develop and educate themselves in order to grow their business.
How do you gain the edge?
In business, you’re either growing or you’re not growing (and in today’s marketplace, that means you’re going backwards). In addition, a business will only grow to the level of the owner’s knowledge or beliefs. The business owners who succeed are those who are always looking to increase their own knowledge and accept change in the way they think and do things. Although it may be challenging at first, this acceptance is important for business owner’s who want to make a change in their business. It is truly a complete shift in thinking.
What does this mean?
For example, instead of thinking, â€œIâ€™m the only one that can do this properly.â€ The thinking becomes, â€œwho in my team can do this?â€ When the business owner starts to think this way they become a manager running the business, working â€œon itâ€ not working â€œin itâ€. Time can then be allocated to determine ways of generating greater revenue for the business. In this process of change, having a coach or mentor is an extremely valuable ingredient. In business and in life, you can achieve much more by being open to learning, change and the assistance of others. The most successful of people are the ones who realize this and seek all three in earnest.
A business coach can help!
What separates elite athletes from average athletes with great potential? Their thought processes, techniques, motivation and of course a fantastic coach. To be a top athlete, you would already have a natural ability, but maintaining it and constantly seeking to improve on it for that edge over the competition is what makes a winner â€“ thatâ€™s where a coach comes in. Jim Rohnâ€™s quote, â€œNever wish the job were easier, wish you were better!â€ says it all. Business is simple, people are complicated. Changing your business can be the easy part, but changing yourself and your team can be the greatest hurdle.
Having a business coach will helpÂ you maintain your motivation, refine your skills, gain constructive feedback and attain constant improvement in your business.Â Contact business coach Rob Carol for all your business coaching needs. Call 604-942-2866 or visit www.robcarol.com/
