Common Business Coaching Questions
A: When you first meet with your business coach, the number one priority is going to be for the coach to learn more about you and your business so that they can specifically tailor their advice to help you.
You can expect a friendly encounter and an enjoyable discussion about your business that will eventually transform into your business coach offering you specialized advice about the goals that you should set for your business and how you should go about meeting those goals.
Such coaches also work to help make you more productive, make your job and running your business easier, and help you achieve all aspects of your vision for your company, including but not limited to its growth.
The issue is that many small business owners are not able to afford or access top-quality coaching. This is why we’ve designed Black Card Business Coaching to be a program that is affordable and accessible to all types of owners, small business owners included.
Curiosity and courage from your coach
A great coach has curiosity and courage in equal measure. They use their curiosity to look at every corner of your business to find the root cause for why things are stuck or stagnating. A great coach asks the right questions in the right moments—something they can only do if they have the training and experience. And a great business coach has the courage to be honest with you: They understand that you need to hear the truth (even if it stings a bit), or have you pause and reflect before you jump into action.
If your business coach can bring these elements of your work together, you’ll become a better leader. You’ll see the impact in your business—in the way your business starts to stabilize, grow, and get closer and closer to your vision. You’ll see the impact in how your employees show up to work. And, you’ll see the impact in your bottom line, in your customer retention and in how your work changes within the business.
A clear roadmap
Through business coaching, your objective is to build a successful business with intention. To do that, you need a structured program to follow. If your coach doesn’t offer a plan for how to help you build each of the systems and strategies you and your business need—and the order in which you should develop them—you’re likely to create some critical system gaps in your business. A good coach has a proven program that they stand behind and are prepared to implement.
At EMyth, we look at coaching through the proverb, “Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime.” A great business coach knows that over time, you’ll need them less and less. Their goal is to give you the right tools to put theory into practice, and to show you how to soon do for yourself what you needed their help with today—the skills to discern and diagnose what your business requires next. Like any good supportive relationship, it’s a bit of a paradox: The more they help you, the less you need them. A great coach knows this and doesn’t pretend otherwise to keep their financial relationship with you intact.
Finding a coach is a highly subjective process that depends on several factors and how much each aligns with your priorities. If you’re looking a coach’s professional characteristics, here are the most important four to consider:
- Do they meet you where you are? Do they take the time to celebrate with you, but also be there for you if something really goes wrong?
- Do they know where you’re headed? Do they have a proven map that they use to ask the right questions for your business in the specific stage it’s in? Don’t assume they have a real plan or any legitimate training just because they have the word “coach” on their business card.
- Can they hold a long-term vision while they help you fix the problems that exist in your business today? Do they notice patterns and trends, or are they just reacting to your daily frustrations? You want wise counsel, not just quick fixes.
- Do they make you more curious? Their way of thinking about things should be infectious—you should find yourself asking other people the kinds of questions they ask you.
- Do they understand what coaching is? Watch out for consultants in disguise, and amateur therapists without the real training or experience to guide you.
- Do they truly hold you accountable? They should be willing to call you out if you don’t show up and do the work to make real change.
- Do they hide behind lingo, lists or tricks? It shouldn’t feel complicated to translate the work you do with your coach into your business and your life—hard maybe, but never complicated or unclear.
A great coach is a lot of things. But most importantly, they’re a trusted mentor who truly cares about your success and the success of your business. They know that the two are inextricably linked, and that’s a partnership where everybody wins.
