Career Performance Institute now offers business coaching services. The role of a business coach is to help the company have breakthroughs to move forward and take the business to the next level. The business owner should have a vision of where the business is currently and where the business needs to be. It is then the job of the business coach to help the business owner become aware of this vision for the company and its core values. That is, to recognize where the business is today, where the business wants to be in the future, and what it will take to close that gap. It is also the job of the business coach to hold the business owner accountable for the actions of the business. A business coach helps to find the blind spot the business owner has with the business which is preventing the business from reaching its goals.
As an organization what is the core values of the business? Is there good communication between employees? Is there an action plan in place for the company to build strong relationships between employees, to avoid conflict?
In today's market place a business owner wants to have an edge over another company if the business wants to move to the next level. That is, there needs to be good communication between coworkers, there has to be good time management skills incorporated to get all the work done in a day so that projects can be completed on time, recognition by employees where their prejudices lie in a diverse environment in the workplace, and also the development of leaders within the company since managers should be able to delegate projects to subordinates instead of handling all the work themselves.
When a business owner has a breakthrough about where the discrepancy is between their visions of their business and where their business really is than the business owner is capable of seeing things differently and take their business to the next level. Think about what Steven Jobs did when he first started Apple Computer. He was great as a startup, but he was not able to take his business to the next level so he brought in someone to run the company who could take the company to the next level. Then when Apple stagnated again, Steven Jobs came back to the company and took it to the next level with the development of new products since he is good at coming up with ideas for new products such at the ipad.
Coaching as a business is a relatively new concept. Often when you thought about a coach, your vision is of a coach of a sports team. But now the word coach has become broader in its view. Just watch Clark Howard on CNN. He refers to himself as a money coach, while all he is doing is giving you good advice on how to manage your money better, where the best investments are at this time, and how to reduce your debt.
In business today if the owner does not have a clear vision about his business, have a written business plan to follow, or have a clear mission for his employees to follow than the business is doomed to failure. It is the job of the business coach to help the business owner take the steps needed to build a successful business and hold them accountable to achieving the goals for the company.
