Five Top Tips for Selecting the Right Business CoachJuly 13, 2017Leading Expert on Executive Coaching Reveals the Secret
For Getting Effective Results From Your Coaching Experience
When you hire a coach, are you getting what you thought? Most business owners who are exploring coaching may not realize the huge differences in the industry.
So who did you just hire, really? Do they fit the true definition of coaching?
Nowadays there are thousands with the title of coach. But what do they really mean? There are over 80 different types of coaching programs. So how do you decide?
· Career Coach
· Health and Wellness Coach
· Life Coach
· Spiritual Coach
· Executive Coach
· Business Coach
Did you know there are online resources where someone can be “Certified” as a professional coach in as little as eight hours? That would be like looking for a brain surgeon who got his medical degree online. Although business coaching is a $2 billion industry, there are many unregistered coaches out there in the marketplace.
Critical Differences. What Coaching is not. So before you pull out your credit card or checkbook and spend thousands of dollars on someone called a coach, use this checklist
Coaching is not Consulting. A consultant is more problem or project specific and focuses more on a single area of your business addressing short-term problems.
Coaching is not Mentoring. Mentoring is focused on the past, not the present or the future. Mentoring is sharing the coach’s experience which may have no relevance to the clients situation.
Coaching is not Counseling or Therapy. Coaching is generally proactive whereas counseling is reactive. Counseling or other psychological therapies require specific in depth training degrees and potential medical licensing.
Coaching is not Teaching/Facilitating or Training. Guiding someone through a linear and static personal growth curriculum is not coaching. It is facilitating.
Coaching is holding up a mirror. It’s all about who you are, your expertise, your life, your agenda and reflecting on that, developing clarity. Coaching is a very powerful method all about asking curious, nonjudgmental, drawing out from the client their own answers for long term success. Imagine coaching as a relationship that is entirely focused on you, someone who actually listens and not just hears, someone who is insatiably curious about who you are and who you intend to be, who holds you accountable to your dreams and aspirations.

Do you need a coach?
The best way to answer this question is to ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you unhappy with your current job position?
- Would you like for your team to work better together to benefit your business and each team member?
- Are you ready to take your career or company to the next level?
- Do you want your business to grow without having to put all of your time and effort in?
- Is one of your goals to achieve greatness?
- Are you ready to start living a meaningful life without the weight of the world’s expectations on your shoulders?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions then I suggest you consider hiring a coach to help you achieve the goals or life you feel is out of reach.
