    Hey [USER=105005]@DaveTwenty7[/USER], personally I don’t have a business coach, but I’m a member of a group where HEAPS of people are investing in hiring one.

    It seems the people choosing to hire a biz coach are those who are already running a pretty successful business, but want to go to the next level.

    From what I’ve read and heard, it appears a lot of them turn to coaches to help improve productivity and streamlining processes.

    Being a coach myself i could be bios. But i have learnt that if you want to be successful you need to do what successful people do. And all successful people have a coach or pay for advice. You can never have all the answers and a coach will help you to find them. Just be careful you don’t pay a lot for just motivational talk. Find someone that can not just coach you but can teach you success principle. The best thing you can do is to hire someone for a month and see how they fit. Don’t sign an expensive 12 month program. You don’t want to spend a lot to get good results.

    This raises some very interesting questions.

    The first being do successful people really all have coaches. I know a number of people I consider successful, and they have done it off there own bat, without the need for a coach or other advise. This statement sounds like a very good marketing ploy.

    But the more important question is what do you consider successful?

    Its true there are many successful people that don’t get Business Coaches, however its like exercising, you can exercise at home but you will get better and faster results if you have a personal trainer.

    I think the most important thing to consider is why do you think you need a Business Coach?

    What are you expecting to get?

    Coaching may or may not help you validate that you are on the right track, which will help with procrastination in making decisions.

    That alone can be very valuable.

    Don’t get the wrong idea, there is no magic bullet. Coaching is a process. It looks at what’s working and what’s not. It helps to clarify thoughts, problems, provides accountability, offers advice and gets you on the best possible path.

    I would recommend a specialist if you are looking for specific advice.

    Coaching is getting an opinion on your business from someone who is not involved.
    A mentor could be just as good often without the expense.
    The Institute of Managers and Leaders offer a mentoring service to its members These mentors are volunteers from members within the Institute, and they marry mentors within the same industry as the mentee.
    Ive often mentored within the Cleaning Industry.
    Industry Associations often have volunteer Mentors available.
    So before racing off getting a business coach check out the Associations in the industry your in to see if they have Volunteer mentors available.
    Many of my Business Coach friends may disagree with me, but for what its worth having someone from the same industry may prove invaluable, as they have probably been in the situation your in now.

    I’ve used different styles of coaches sporadically over the years and have two that I can recommend:
    For executive coaching: Lisa Geerling – Tacit Leadership. She’s an organisational psychologist, has an amazing mind and has a wide range of experience. Lisa specialises in leadership potential and tackling adaptive challenges.

    For business/life coaching: Lissy Venner 0406 399018 – Amazing You Coaching (her website is being redesigned so not up at the moment). Lissy specialises in peeling back the layers so you can address behaviour patterns that might be standing in your own way.

    I had a business coach for a year. It was great. Things he taught me I still use and teach to my team today.

    Have to make sure you find the right one though. I had a choice of 5 people near me and none of the other 4 seemed like they cared.

    The one I found was great. He’s in Perth. Mark Jackson – businessveteran.com.au

    I saw a website recently for a ‘spiritual’ business coach charging $225 an hour to advise which crystals would get your chakra a promotion…
