Why does coaching work?

No entrepreneur has ever done it alone.

We’ve already mentioned some of the benefits of coaching (advice, perspective, confidence, encouragement, developing your skills, somewhere to vent, networking, developing methods and strategies and building long-lasting relationships). But you might still be asking ‘why?’ coaching works.

When you’re working in your business, or putting in the hours in a management role, it’s hard to get some perspective on what the business really needs, and whether you’re doing the right things to make it more successful, efficient and profitable.

A BIS survey from 2010 shows that businesses that seek external advice and information are 14% more ambitious and 50% more successful than those who don’t.

Coaching gives you the space to step outside the business, and concentrate on what it really needs; it creates a different physical and mental space, where you can focus on the fundamentals, away from the distractions of the day-to-day. You’ll set realistic and achievable goals, and find you’re making constant progress towards them. It sounds simple, but it’s invaluable; yet it’s something the majority of business leaders still aren’t doing.

Ultimately, you’ll see increased profits, through a business that understands its customers better, and functions more effectively and efficiently. The feedback from our clients is testimony to that…

Statistics in the US say that people who’ve had mentoring earn between $5,610 and $22,450 more than those who don’t.

Does that sound like something you could benefit from?
