What is Coaching?
People often ask me “So you’re a business coach, what exactly do you do?”
Well, first I view my role as a mentor but since Business Mentor isn’t a term widely used, I use “coach”. But, you might ask "What does a business coach do? Aren’t you really a consultant?"
In short, no. A consultant as a subject matter expert has answers, I as a coach have questions. My job isn’t to tell you where you’re wrong, fix you, and solve your problems. Rather, I help you get clarity on what your challenges and opportunities are and facilitate a discussion that helps you select the best course of action. Does it always work perfectly? Heck no. But it is much more effective for business owners to have a trusted advisor, coach, and yes mentor, to vent to and run their ideas by.
I could be viewed as a stakeholder but really I’m not. I am a catalyst for action. No action, no change. I’m not interested in enabling the status quo. If things are going great you don’t need me, or anyone else coaching you.
