Why does the coach need a coach?

A brilliant Wednesday with my business coach Rachel Turner and my business development/marketing manager Rachel Barrow.

  • Item 1 - improvements to The Extreme Business 100 programme for 2024;

  • Item 2 - growth target for 2024;

  • Item 3 - marketing plan for the last three months of 2023;

  • Item 4 - long term growth plan (5 years) for The Extreme Business portfolio of services.

I emerge from the meeting with a renewed sense of clarity and confidence.

Why do I invest a considerable sum each year in asking Rachel Turner to coach me?

Even the very best professionals in sport, the arts and other disciplines have coaches who help them at the pinnacle of their careers.

Finding a good business coach can be a challenging task, but here are some tips to help you identify and select the right coach for you:

  1. Look for a coach with relevant experience: Look for a coach who has experience in your industry or in a similar field. They should have a proven track record of success and be able to provide you with relevant case studies or testimonials;

  2. Check their credentials: Ensure that the coach you select has relevant qualifications and certifications. This can include business coaching certifications, relevant degrees, and professional affiliations;

  3. Determine their coaching style: Understand the coaching style of the coach you are considering. Some coaches may be more directive, while others may be more facilitative. Choose a coach whose coaching style aligns with your personality and preferences;

  4. Look for a good fit: Find a coach who you feel comfortable working with and who you trust. You should be able to establish a good rapport and feel confident that your coach has your best interests at heart;

  5. Check their availability: Make sure that the coach you select has the time and availability to work with you. You should be able to establish a schedule that works for both of you and ensures regular contact;

  6. Research their reputation: Check online reviews and ask for referrals from past clients. A good coach should have a positive reputation and be able to provide references from satisfied clients;

  7. Clarify their fees and terms: Ensure that you have a clear understanding of the coach's fees and terms before you start working with them. This includes how long the coaching relationship will last, how many sessions you will have, and what support you can expect outside of sessions.

By following these tips, you should be able to find a good business coach who can help you achieve your goals and grow your business.

I'm blessed by my relationship with Rachel Turner, she has helped me grow my business exponentially in the years we have worked together.

The right business coach makes a massive difference.
