Business coaches are people who help businesses to succeed. They can offer a range of services, as the needs of different businesses will be very different. Some will specialise in working with SMEs whilst others’ specialisms lie in helping big corporations.
A business coach is a someone who can take a step back and see your business as an outsider. This can be very beneficial for a business owner, as often they are so caught up in running their business, they lose sight of the bigger picture. This can mean they forget what it is like to be a member of staff, but also that they cannot think of new ways to work on their business.
A coach will probably begin with a consultation to find out where a business is, and where it is going. They can then work alongside that business to put plans in place and work towards goals.
