Improved Performance

In many cases, most businesses can benefit from improved performance as a result of business coaching and that is why you need a business coach.

The performance improvements can come from a variety of areas. Most business owners and leaders are so active in the business that they rarely get time to focus on the business. It is the focus on the business which delivers the identification of opportunity. Appointing a coach is the first step to taking time focus on the business performance.

Taking Action

It is easy to procrastinate. It’s likely that most of the improvements identified by a business coach are not news to the business owner. The business owner probably already knows these areas need improving. Having now appointed a business coach with fees, the owner is more likely to take action and deliver the improvements, that’s why you need a business coach.


A business needs a coach working with the owner to set out a strategy. From that strategy they will create an plan which the business owner is responsible for delivering. The business coach will hold the owner accountable, the accountability is a strong driving force in the relationship between owner and coach.

Unbiased Opinion

In many circumstances where there are Boards/Shareholders and/or Partners, appointing a coach can be a cohesive action. When direction and opinion become fractured having an experienced unbiased opinion can very often lift pressure, ease tensions and give a platform for creative debate and planning. Great business coaches should lead owners to discover the “aha” moments creating that competitive advantage.

Andy Murray continually changes his coach as his development needs change, those changes took him to World No1

As a business leader/owner, you might think that you’ve got everything covered. And whilst you will certainly have your areas of excellence, you and your business will benefit greatly from coaching.
