“If you want to build your business and at the same time have a rewarding personal life, you call a coach.”

Denver Post

The coaching industry has witnessed a groundswell in popularity growth over the last five years. Here are the statistics from Dr Sandra Fielden (university of Manchester):

  • 51% increase in the use of coaching in companies
  • 47% increase in e-learning
  • 42% increase in mentoring and buddy-systems in organisations
  • 96% of people in business surveyed (Parsloe and Rolph) stated that people who take on more responsibilities in their working roles need coaching

So why is coaching back in vogue? Because coaching works!

The increase in optimism regarding the world’s economy has resulted in vast quantities of companies investing in business coaches, executive coaches and leadership coaching.

Why Business Coaching?

Quite simply, an industry that it is a growth phase is definitely the place to be. Opportunities and potential lie in each and every business. There is no doubt that the time is now!

Business Coaching is one of those dynamic and never-a-dull-moment opportunities to combine business knowledge with interpersonal skills, allowing the coaching to achieve their goals and move forward with their lives. There is little more excitingand rewarding than igniting a fire of passion under someone who accepts responsibility for their own development… and then watching them race towards their finish line.

“The benefits of coaching appear to win over even the most cynical clients within just a few weeks.”

Money Magazine

Meet the Entrepreneur 10: Stepping Back

Stepping back from a businessThrough history the rebels who overthrow a government and start a new era are very rarely the people who then run the country.

Similarly, in business. The energy and thought processes that are required by an entrepreneur to launch and develop a business are a completely different skill set to the one that works to grow a stable and professional company. 

This can be difficult for an entrepreneur to hear.  The reality is however that if the entrepreneur wants what is best for the company, the chances are that he or she will naturally start to withdraw from the daily operations. 

 Further to this, the nature of an entrepreneur is to start new things, take on exciting challenges and take the risks which yield the best rewards. Therefore, inevitably the entrepreneur will start craving something new and dynamic.  Their innovative thinking and behavioural style is likely to launch them into another project anyway.

The rebels have a strong purpose and it is through their actions that the biggest changes in history happen. The presidents, prime ministers, or managers keep the status quo and grow things in a consistent and responsible manner.

All businesses need a shake up once in a while and all managers need to be challenged in order to grow. The skill set of the entrepreneur is invaluable and will never be redundant. It’s just a matter of using those skills most effectively and where their impact is the greatest.
