Throughout my career as a business coach & mentor, I have had the privilege of collaborating with four different coaches. Each of these collaborations has contributed significantly to my personal and skill development, ultimately enhancing the value I bring to my clients.
In recent weeks I embarked on a search to identify my next coach. My primary objective is to invest in a person to provide a fresh perspective and to raise different ways to approach business. I am looking for that person to challenge me to maximise the wealth of knowledge and experience I have accumulated as a business coach & mentor.
To be candid, the search has been a challenging one. Many of the people I am encountering are promoting year-long group programs tailored for business owners who are looking to significantly scale their businesses. These programs do not align with my current needs & objectives.
What the search has confirmed is my belief in the importance of selecting a coach who possesses not only exceptional knowledge about business but also a deep understanding of the unique challenges faced by business owners, both personally and as a business owner. The qualities of empathy and insightful guidance stand out as pivotal criteria when making this crucial decision.
