BUSINESS COACHING & MENTORING FAQs
HOW DOES COACHING HELP ME?
Coaching with us helps you reach specific business goals. First, we spend time with you and listen carefully to your challenges and needs. Then, we investigate what makes you and your business tick. Next, we support you in developing an overarching and holistic strategy for the long-term success of the business in a time frame that is realistic and achievable.
WHO IS COACHING FOR?
Every business owner can benefit from coaching. We all here at EMPOWER have mentors and coaches who have helped us on our journey. It can be beneficial to have a coach to be accountable to, especially when you are working on your business alone. As you know your business better than anyone else, your coach will collaborate with you so that you can easily integrate new strategies and be inspired to new heights!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CONSULTANT & A COACH?
Coaching is done in a coaching session of around 90 minutes a fortnight or 45 mins weekly, depending on what suits you best. Coaching can be quite intensive and requires you to be prepared with what you need from the sessions and report back on what you have achieved so far. Coaching is not for the faint-hearted; it requires you to put in the effort to get the results we have agreed on. On the other hand, a consultant is a coach and outsourced manager in one. It still requires goal setting. However, the day-to-day running of the business and refining of its systems and processes are also included.
HOW DO I KNOW I NEED COACHING?
The signs will be there: lack of motivation, feeling like you’re snowed under and not getting anywhere, not feeling excited to work on your “baby”, feeling frustrated or annoyed with the people you are working with, lacking direction, feeling “stuck” or maybe wondering what it would be like to sell and get out forever! We can help you work out what’s next.
