What happened when a business owner decided to attend a 90 day planning workshop with a local business coach offered to area business owners?
He said that taking ½ day out from business to plan out his goals for the next quarter seemed a very helpful plan. Result: He gained much more than he had expected.
This gives another perspective of how it helps business owners step outside themselves to view their work and life.
“When you are in it, you can’t see it.” I appreciate the practical example of this business owner coaching group.
When I added BCoach training to my organization development expertise, I found I was reluctant, initially. This changed as the training progressed. I found the content and coaching experience powerful and very helpful as I was coached, observed coaching, and coached others using the context of my consulting experience over twenty (20) years.
When I finished the coaching training, I found that, as I was already working with clients, individually and via leadership teams, the coaching expertise I gained sped up their progress.
Excerpt from MaineBusiness.com:
I walked away inspired and pumped with a clear plan for my goals for the next quarter.
Priming the pump of efficiency
…there were 14 different business owners there, from a variety of different industries and it was great to just talk about the struggles and successes different owners were experiencing. It was equally beneficial to hear how well their respective businesses are doing after coaching, plus they seemed to have much more control of their personal life. It seems that a good business coach doesn’t just focus on the business but the business owner, so making sure there is a balance with health, leisure, family, friends and fitness are all part of the goal setting.
For many, being a business owner can be quite lonely…the lack of peers to bounce ideas off… What I really liked about this group of business owners that showed up for the 90 day plan was their support of each other, and eagerness to share, listen and learn from each other.
…a good business coach …[is] making sure there is a balance with health, leisure, family, friends and fitness …all part of the goal setting.
…many of them attend a weekly group coaching session called Profit Club, …where they work together through the many different aspects of running a business. The bonus, it appears, is the resource material available, and the training and motivation that goes with having a business coach plus peers that support you.
