Is a business coach right for my business? is one of the most frequently asked questions I get from business owners.
In most cases a business coach can help you in your business with whatever you are struggling with as well as areas that you are looking to grow and expand.
If you take a look at top end athletes, both amateur and professional, it is extremely rare to find one without a coach.
Is A Business Coach Right For My Business?
One of the reasons that a coach is so valuable is that they have an objective point of view and are detached, so they can see things that you cannot. You are so close both physically and emotionally to what is going on in your business that you have some blind spots where you can’t see what is really going on or what impact a change might have either positive or negative.
A Coach has an outsider’s perspective of your business and can view what is going on more objectively from that vantage point.
A coach has experience and a different set of life and business skills than you do. The coach can thus view situations from a totally different perspective and bring in their experiences from other clients that they have worked with as well. Maybe one of their clients had a similar situation and chose path A that worked, or path B that didn’t, and your coach can impart that knowledge and experience from the past and can help you to choose A over B and you can use that previous experience to avoid the failure, without having to make the mistake in your own business.
Additionally a coach is great at holding you accountable to your stated goals and aspirations.
If you don’t follow through with your assertions, then your coach will call you on it. You can give yourself excuses as to why you didn’t complete a task, but your coach won’t stand for that. If you coach is doing their job, they will help to motivate you to take the actions you know will improve your business situation.

If you are still on the fence, then I didn’t do my job in this article, but if I did answer that question sufficiently enough for you to be able to answer with either a Yes or a No, then you now know if you should start searching for the right coach for you or not.
