Yes! There are many resources out there offering this type of coaching. While they won’t give you the exact answer, they should be an invaluable resource on their search for best business coaches.
What type of business coaching should I consider?
The type of coaching you’re looking for is heavily dependent on the size and scope of the business you’re helping. A business coach who will teach you how to manage a small business, a team of contractors who help you build a new office or a growing online business needs to fit those types of business. Many businesses come in at different sizes. So is it worth hiring someone to teach you how to manage a different size business? You’re likely looking at someone who is already dedicated to helping a company grow or manage a new business.
Is it worth hiring someone only for one practice? Some business coaches will come in and teach you about things like creating a budget, setting goals and other things that you can do while the business owner is away. If you like those, you’ll find a few other coaches who teach everything else – you get the idea.
What level of business ownership should I look for?
For business owners looking to get a business coach, they should go to the bottom of the list because that’s the only person who will actually be able to give you the personal advice you need and not a business coach. However, if you are going to hire a coach, you should think about the type of business you’re looking to work in and what level of ownership you might need. There are some people who specialize in helping small business owners but others who specialize in helping entrepreneurs – either way, you should find someone who can help you manage that type of business.
Will having a business coach make me feel better?
Not at all. That sort of advice can lead to a sense of resentment in you about how you’re being treated in a way that is different to how you would be treated if you had an employee. You’ve heard the saying “If you have nothing to lose, you’ve got nothing to gain”? Well, at least you won’t feel that way if you look to someone to help you out with that. Business coaches will help you look at that differently but you won’t feel as if you’ve lost out by hiring someone.
Who will I be coaching?
Most coaches are very experienced business owners who’ve worked with many businesses themselves. They’ve been in business in some form or another for a long time
