“Business coaching is attracting America’s top CEOs because, put simply, business coaching works. In fact, when asked for a conservative estimate of monetary payoff from the coaching they got…managers described an average return of more than $100,000, or about six times what the coaching had cost their companies.” Fortune Magazine
Coaching is a trend in the business world right now; however, when we introduce ourselves as business coaches, many people don’t know what that means. As business coaches, we challenge and inspire you to reach your professional goals and increase your performance in your business as a whole or as the leader of that business. You decide what you want to improve, and together we figure out how to get you there. A coach is an important partner to have regardless of the size of your business, the stage your business is in, or your current position in the company.
If your business is new or you’re thinking about starting a business or a new branch of an existing business, a coach will work with you to set your vision and plan for this venture. We hold you accountable to setting specific goals and to complete all the steps that will get you to meet them. We brainstorm with you and help you to dream big so you can decide what is possible and desirable and then determine how to get there. We support your dreams and encourage you to make them happen and then celebrate with you when they do!
Your business is up and running, even making a profit. You’re thinking of hiring an assistant or expanding or planning to expand. A coach will partner with you to create a business plan with realistic goals that will allow you to track your progress and decide how to grow and how much you can reasonably do in a day. Your coach has you and your business in mind and will support the steps you need to take to make your goals come to life.
You are thinking about selling your business and moving on to more exciting prospects or you want to spend less time working and more time doing other endeavors. Your coach will focus on your plans and co-design actions that allow you to achieve them in the way that is best for you. Together we will create the systems and structures that will allow you to hand over the reins gracefully and move on to your next big thing.
You’ve decided it’s time to move out of your business entirely and do all the things you’ve been planning to do “someday”, a coach is a great partner to have. Your coach will support you as you move into new territory and set your intentions for how you will do this with the same tenacity, resourcefulness, and creativity as you did in your business. Transitions come with some surprises, and it helps to have someone who is guiding you through such an important time in your life in the best way possible for you.
As the CEO, owner, or leader in your business, you have recognized that it gets lonely at the top. People who look up to you won’t always tell you what they think, and you may not always get an accurate picture of what is happening or how to best make the changes that need to happen. Your coach will create awareness, bring out your strengths, and hone in on what and how to tackle in the immediate and long-term future.
You have some really great ideas and you’re passionate about what you want to do. You have done the market research, and you even have the funding you need to get off the ground. You’ve gotten your vision out of the planning stages and onto the factory floor. Now you need someone to support that vision when you feel discouraged and to solve everyday problems with when you don’t see the solution. That is what a coach can do for you. Your coach helps you hold onto your dreams and encourages you to stretch a little bit farther so you can reach your true potential and bring your dream into reality.
Maybe you aren’t the leader in your company, but you want to be, or at least you know you could be doing so much more than you are. Coaching is a great place to explore your hidden (and not so hidden) talents and push through the things that get in your way when you try to advance. A coach can work with you to uncover your true purpose in life and inspire you to be your best self every day, so you can move forward in your current role as the excellent employee that you are or into your future role as an authentic leader.
Whether you work in a small business, are the CEO of a large corporation, work in middle management, or are a solo-preneur, a coach is a powerful resource to have on your team. Keep more of your money local, and hire a coach in the metro area. Local coaches understand how business works in Denver and the unique challenges and opportunities local businesses face.
“If you want to build your business and at the same time have a rewarding personal life, you call a coach.” – Denver Post
