Coaching is a huge topic in many different industries today, and for good reason: a great coaching team can help you get the results you’re looking for. Gone are the days when business owners could rely on the tactics that had worked for years or decades; today, things are moving quickly, and focused coaching is becoming more vital than ever.
The right coaching team can provide you with everything from a customized action plan to the accountability you need, but a great coach goes deeper than that.
As a business coach, this is something I get asked about from time to time, and I would like to offer you a deeper look at some of the benefits you can find with the right coaching team!
(By the way, if you’ve been thinking about getting coaching yourself, let me know – I would be happy to answer your questions and help you decide if my team is right for you!)
Accountability and Overcoming Procrastination
I work with a lot of driven business owners – people who want to get things done and crush their goals. The problem is, they have a lot going on. Inevitably, the things they need to focus on get pushed to the side by the things they think they have to focus on.
One of my clients said it well in a Facebook group comment a few months ago: “We know what to do, we just have to decide to do it.”
It sounds simple, but it’s often easier said than done. After all, there are only so many hours in the day, and there’s only one of you. Eventually, something has to give, and too often it’s the tasks that will grow your business.
A strong coaching team can help you set an action plan, provide you with consistent accountability, and when needed, give you the loving kick in the butt you need to get it done. (I’m famous for sending a size 13 branded hiking boot to my clients when they need such a kick: they’re required to keep it on their desk for a month as a tangible reminder of their goals.)
While the UYB Boot is a fun reminder (I actually have clients who complain if they don’t get one!), our coaching team goes deeper than that. In addition to our team of specialized coaches, we also have an Accountability Coach who works with every client, staying in contact with them throughout their journey with us. This has resulted in some incredible breakthroughs, with several clients seeing their best months ever!
Identifying Your Blind Spots
At times, procrastination and accountability are major factors for a business owner, but for many, being able to identify blind spots is the key to growing your business. To find them, you need an objective, experienced eye – one that isn’t intimately involved in running the day to day tasks of your business.
This is where your coaching team comes in! While each of your coaches will help you develop and reach specific goals, they will also inevitably see things you don’t. Sometimes, these will be small things that will help your team be more productive; sometimes, they will be things that will make a significant difference in your business!
Not only can your coach help shine a light on these areas, they can also help you develop a plan to work through them – and give you the confidence you need to tackle the things that have been holding you back.
By working with a specialized team, you can access the insights and experiences of several different coaches, each of whom are focused on one thing: helping you find the profitability, success, and freedom you’re looking for!
Running a profitable business requires strong strategies. There will be areas that require experimentation, such as marketing, but even this requires a strong strategic foundation. However, no one is strong in every area. We all need trusted advisors in our corners.
We have more information available to us on a daily basis than at any other time in history. Not all of that information is accurate, though, and as a busy business owner, you simply don’t have time to weed through all of it. The right coaching team can help you focus, cut through the noise, and implement the changes your business needs.
This is especially important when it comes to developing your business strategy and implementing your systems. Something that many clients have told me is that they hesitate to create systems, either because they want them to be perfect or because they’re scared their team won’t use them. (These are completely valid concerns!) My team and I walk through this journey with them, offering them proven frameworks and effective strategies to help them grow the profitable business that will allow them to thrive.
There’s a reason that coaching is more popular than ever – and there’s a reason that almost every successful business owner considers their coaching team to be one of their best assets!
