A coach is a vehicle that transports people from one place to another, a Business Coach works in exactly the same way. I work with Business Owners and their teams to help them see beyond today and through coaching and mentoring help them achieve levels of success they didn't think possible.
My clients tell me that coaching gives them:
- Clarity on where they want their company to go and how to get there
- Someone to brainstorm ideas with
- Tools and templates to effectively plan and implement efficiently
- Someone to hold them accountable
- A different perspective
When people get their first job there is a clear expectation of what they need to do and people to ask if they need help. When you start your own business suddenly you are on your own and need to be an expert on strategy, a financial guru, sales and marketing exec, HR professional as well as the day to day running of the business. It can feel like a huge weight on your shoulders and even if you know what needs to be done it is hard to know where to start. It is no surprise that often the 1st area I work on with a client is how to make the most of their time!
I strongly believe that coaching should be available for all sizes of company so I offer group coaching as well as one to one coaching programmes. All programmes cover the business framework needed to run a successful business:
- Business planning and strategy
- Getting clear on all the financials and tracking performance
- Building a high performing team
- Mastering your time; getting the job done with the work/life balance in place
- Systemising your business to make it scalable - giving you controlled growth
- Sales and marketing to get a consistent pipeline of customers
- Providing exceptional customer service with great value products and services so you never have to compete purely on price
I only work with companies that are ready to change and willing to invest in the time and effort needed for business transformation; if you are ready to take your business to the next level contact me now for a free business review; firstname.lastname@example.org
A Business Coach helps you become more than you thought you can be. Most business know generally what they need to do to have a great business but there is interference that stops that from happening; this could be from many areas such as: fire-fighting the day to day operational challenges, lack of a documented shared vision and plan, a poor performing team, lack of self belief, knowing where to start.
Business coaching works on developing the person as well as the business gradually removing all the interference to get a commercial profitable enterprise that can work with-out you.
"We are a family business and have been retailing beds & furniture for over 35 years.
Prior to starting the coaching program with Lucy, we as with many other retailing businesses had been through a very challenging period of trading due to a mixture of recession & changing purchasing habits. The company results showed mounting losses.
In May 2014 we started the coaching program with Lucy which helped us focus on the foundations of the business. The results have been staggering. In the six months since we began we have turned the company from loss making to profit making, with sales, gross profit, conversions, now rising rapidly we are well on course to achieving record profits.
But the most exciting aspect is, we have only just begun, and this transformation is solely & simply just about getting our foundations & understanding of numbers in order, and when we start mixing this with the comprehensive marketing plan which is just being finalised and to be rolled out over the next 12 months the performance will reach even higher levels of which would have only been a dream only 6 months ago.
The profits coming through are still hard to believe, but with each set of stats & monthly management accounts our confidence builds.
With the help & guidance of Lucy and the Action Coach methodology, we have accomplished so much in such a short space of time, it is truly life changing and has given us all hope for the future."
