What do Serena Williams, Bill Gates, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Oprah Winfrey all have in common? Indeed, great success, and they all invested time and effort to work with a Business Coach as they understood the importance of that investment to achieve their desired results. https://visionfirecoaching.com/famous-entrepreneurs-who-had-business-coaches-and-how-it-helped-them/
A great business coach can guide you, too, pushing beyond any self-perceived limiting beliefs to see things differently, identify goals, and take action to produce better results and make significant progress.
Many people don’t realize what a business coach can do for them or their business. At ActionCOACH, we uphold a process that draws out the wisdom from you, the client. Our certified coaches have expertise in the process of coaching, skilled in asking the right kinds of questions and providing a helpful kind of support so you, the client, can discover how to “BE” and determine what to “DO.” We also share proven strategies, methodologies, and systems that can be effectively implemented. An ActionCOACH will guide you in building a roadmap for your success; they will help you become a more effective influencer and leader (a necessity to thrive through challenging times). Lastly, they will help create the kind of work environment that effectively retains and recruits top talent (something we are all trying to figure out these days).
A business coach should work alongside you. Coaching is a confidential engagement focused on designing, planning, aligning, and achieving your (the client’s) personal goals and business goals. A coaching process includes a continuous learning attitude that encourages candid and respectful conversations between coach and client, including a self-reflective approach to enhance creativity and embrace change with a problem-solving focus for sustainable solution(s). This type of investment is a GROWTH strategy for leaders and companies who want to grow yet seem to have underlying constraints, such as challenges with recruitment and retention these days.
Elements of a Powerful Coaching Partnership
A Winner’s Mindset | Awareness | Being COACHABLE
Become aware of the key behaviors that either help or hinder progress and growth. We cannot change what we are unaware of, so bringing to our conscious awareness our current leadership shadow – how we show up and what we can do differently – is essential.
A Strong “WHY” | Alignment with Clearly Defined Goals
Thomas Edison, renowned for inventing the light bulb in 1879, said, “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” After a thousand failed attempts, he finally succeeded where others had failed because his ‘why’ was so powerful. Coaching works best when aligned with what a person or organization wants to work on and “why” it is significant.
An Attitude for Continuous Learning | DRIVEN |Always looking to improve
Stay curious and be open to new ways of thinking. Improve Daily and Learn from what works and what doesn’t – Learn from mistakes. Take Action. Test and Measure. Create clear goals and a written action plan to help provide a road map to achieve the future vision. The program also provides a baseline for the current state, pre-coaching, and indicates progress toward the desired state, post-coaching.
Accountability | Ownership with an Appropriate PACE:
Coaching creates the environment, sets the tone for people to take responsibility for their growth, and provides built-in accountability. The coach will check in on the progress made toward agreed-upon action items from the last coaching session. This is the power of coaching in action.
