The reason most people are not comfortable with business development is they fear they will be seen as aggressive, needy or manipulative.
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) January 13, 2016
A new website, BizDevCoach.com, gives professionals an innovative set of tools to help them take on an area of their careers they may not be very good at: business development.
BizDevCoach was designed specifically for professionals in law, accounting, investing, financial planning, real estate, architecture and other specialty areas who need an effective, organized and planned approach to business development.
The software was created by Larry Kohn, president of Kohn Communications, one of the oldest and largest firms specializing in coaching professionals in business development. Kohn sees BizDevCoach as providing individuals with the means to successfully communicate their skills and services to potential clients in a professional and dignified way.
“The reason most people are not comfortable with business development is they fear they will be seen as aggressive, needy or manipulative,” says Kohn, who has conducted over 31,000 individual business development coaching session. “Or, they are just stuck in a rut and need a new approach. BizDevCoach recharges your business development efforts by helping you overcome obstacles, keeping you motivated and identifying the things about business development that you enjoy and would be proud to undertake. It then guides you to create and successfully implement your plan. Business development shouldn’t be a burden. When done right, it’s invigorating.”
Kohn points out that BivDevCoach is different from Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software or a contact database. “BizDevCoach is like having your own personalized business development coach to guide you and keep you on track but at a fraction of the cost,” says Kohn.
One of the software’s unique features is “Plan Pal”—where a participant can communicate with another professional through an online platform with the sole goal of providing mutual support. “Having a peer you can talk with candidly about your business development plan without the political baggage and pressures of a boss, mentor or marketing support staff can make all the difference,” says Kohn. “It’s a game-changer by being interactive and personalized. Nothing else is out there like this in the business development landscape.”
More than 200 professionals have already signed up with BizDevCoach since it was introduced earlier this month. A comprehensive tutorial takes participants through a step-by-step process.
BizDevCoach comes with a get-started questionnaire, regular reminder emails, to-do lists, target worksheets and “help” links for in-depth guidance. BizDevCoach is available free for the first 30 days and $7.99 per month afterwards. To sign up for free or for more information, go to http://www.BizDevCoach.com.
