Are you one of the growing number of executives, directors, and business owners who have their own dedicated professional coach?
Then congratulations! You are now officially ‘cool’! A visionary! Insightful!
Above all, you have dramatically increased your opportunity for on-going success…by around 400%!
Here’s a quick stat for you:
- around 80% of those who engage a dedicated professional coach achieve greater success in business. Fact!
- around 80% of those that don’t, don’t!
It’s true: if you have a responsible position in (particularly) a business organisation, whatever its size, you have will have taken a significant step towards assuring your and your business’s success by recruiting the services of a professional coach.
Much as having your own therapist became ‘the’ thing to have in business on the 1990s, here in the 21st century having your own dedicated executive coach is rapidly becoming a sign of how ‘cool’ you are, and a clear sign of your dedication to making the best of yourself and your opportunities. Yes, really!
Coaching, through working with a professionally qualified and experienced coach, will help you to establish the best solutions for you and your business – it’s an entirely bespoke service dedicated to meeting and exceeding your needs, at the time you need it, in the way you need it.
What is more, a professional coach should effectively pay for themselves through the benefits they facilitate.
Remember to be very careful how you choose your coach, though!
- make sure they have achieved a good professional coaching qualification from a UK university or management school, or one of the respected providers of coaching qualifications (N.B.: many, many providers of ‘coaching qualifications’ are not providing genuine qualifications at all, and are almost always of poor quality)
- check out their post-qualification experience. It will help you to establish that they have a proven ability
- look for a coach who focuses on the topics you are seeking help with, and meet with them before making a decision – if you can’t work well together, you won’t reap the greatest benefits from coaching
- if your ‘coach’ wants you to follow their prescribed ‘programme’, walk away (as they won’t be helping you establish the unique solutions you seek)!
After all, would you use an unqualified accountant? Or an unqualified solicitor? No! So, make sure your coach is qualified too.
