High 5 Advantages to Working with a Enterprise Coach
When you use Google’s Steve Jobs Business Coach, you’ll see:
Bill Campbell was named a "Trillionaire Dollar Coach" after leading not only Steve Jobs, but also Larry Page (co-founder of Google) and Jeff Bezos (founder of Amazon) to develop products and services that changed the world.
Why did Steve Jobs, Larry Page and Jeff Bezos turn to a business coach to help them find their way?
Because they knew the Socratic paradox, named after the Greek philosopher Socrates. "I know that I know nothing."
Although these mega-moguls definitely knew something – I mean, they founded some of the largest companies in the world – they found that they didn't know everything. Your business could get huge, but only if you had the help you need to get personal advice, avoid upcoming pitfalls, let someone know your goals, and more.
And that's exactly what a business coach like Bill Campbell does.
Regardless of the size of your company, a business coach can help you identify the opportunity you don't have, shed light on what needs improvement, and guide you through difficult times.
Here are the top five benefits of working with a business coach.
# 1: Business coaches advise you personally
Your business coach can tell you exactly what you need to do in a situation or opportunity – specifically for what is happening. Rather than giving general advice (as you can find on YouTube videos or articles), they can determine exactly what you need to do based on the situation you're in or the opportunity you have.
For example, if you're wondering if it's time to hire a social media manager, your business coach will say yes or no, depending on where you are in your company today. They will tell you whether this is right for you or whether you should wait in your company due to certain factors.
# 2: Business coaches speak from experience
We like to live by the quote: "Don't get advice from someone with whom you wouldn't trade a life." Your business coach will be one of the few people you look for advice because they speak from experience. You have successfully started the campaign you are already thinking about and made the mistake years ago of hiring the wrong person for the job.
Your business coach can recognize the red flags and potential speed limits in a way that a less experienced business owner cannot recognize. Then they can help you avoid them or use your years of experience to get the best out of a difficult situation.
# 3: Business coaches help you achieve your definition of success
Success means something different for everyone. One of the best aspects of a trainer is that there is someone who can see what you think means success and let you know if you are on this path.
For example, if you want to work 10 hours a week from a beach in Bali, your business coach can tell you that your company is not set up to ever do so. Then they will tell you what you can do to set it up so that you can grab your swimsuit and live your best life in Bali.
# 4: Business coaches tell you where to improve
Being an entrepreneur and having to improve goes hand in hand. Having your own business is like a catalyst for self-improvement. You have no choice but to become a master of your own mind if you want to achieve (your definition) of success.
A business coach can tell you when he sees an opportunity for personal development. You will be able to see what you cannot and will lead you to improve yourself in that part of yourself so that you are happier in the long run. For example, if you know you're having trouble with difficult conversations, you need to figure out why and how to fix it so that you can have the difficult conversations associated with scaling up a business – without breaking a sweat.
# 5: Business coaches are your biggest fan
Okay, maybe that's a lie – your mother definitely has roots for you too. But business trainers wear your jersey and cheer you on. You are someone you can rely on when your times are good and when they are a little more challenging.
Having someone in your corner who believes in you … and reminds you of how much they do … is one of the most important aspects of a business coach. For the days when you feel depressed or a case of "Can-I-Really-Pull-This-Off ?!" They will remind you that you can and you will.
A business coach has repeatedly proven to be a valuable resource for companies (ahem, Apple, Google, Amazon). When business owners realize they have so much more to learn and there are other people who love to coach, teach, and lead, they move up.
