My Role as Business Coach & Mentor
I believe that business is conducted in two places being the HEAD and the HEART. The Head is all about the practical hands-on actions that occur inside your business. The Heart is about the passion belief and commitment that you bring to the business. It is only when HEAD and HEART are working together to create your dream business will you maximise the chances to achieve success.
However, what can happen as a business starts making positive gains, the HEAD and HEART separate. At this point your HEAD may start to dominate and take you in a direction different from where your HEART wants to go. Remember that where your HEAD goes does not necessarily mean that your HEART will follow. Once the connection is broken and the HEAD dominates, you could well find that you start “falling out of love” with your business.
In my role as your Business Coach & Mentor, I help you re-connect your HEART with your HEAD for where the HEART goes the HEAD will always follow. My approach as to how I will engage with you on the journey to re-establish the connection is outlined in the following table:
