Business Coaching, much more than just consulting
is JUST business
...as we see it,
BUSINESS COACH OR MANAGEMENT CONSULTANT??
There is a TREMENDOUS difference between a Business Coach and a consultant.
First, even though their goal is increased profit, Business Coaches have very personal relationships with our clients, relationships that should also be satisfying and fun.
A Business Coach knows that business should only be a part of any truly successful individual’s life.
So the Business Coach is loyal only to the person being coached; the consultant is responsible to the company.
A Business Coach is an experienced, numerate but strategic “voice on the shoulder” supporting business people.
The Business Coach must have both objective and subjective goals but like any business assistance such as legal assistance or a marketing initiative, Business Coaches must more than earn their keep.
A sports coach would never rush onto the field to play. That's just not the coach’s mission. Again, the coach's job is to focus on the big picture and to listen, teach, and motivate the team to play their best game.
Actually, that's analogous to the role of a Business Coach in the very serious game of business.
That’s why consultants often become employees. A coach would never become an employee.
Business Coaches understand that supportive insight and fresh perspective are invaluable; applied skilfully, often in just minutes, it can be worth hundreds of thousands.
A Business Coach often generates 10's of thousands in revenue for clients by helping those clients achieve a wider spectrum of results, results that they would have never achieved without their Business Coach, sitting on their shoulder and holding them accountable.
So as we see it...
Oh, and we work only with people who REALLY want our help. Life is too short.
