Some of the questions that many of our potential clients ask surprise us. If you do not see the question, or answer for that matter, that you want here than feel free to call us at (608)210-2221 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s get started with all of these questions and answers…
Business Coaching Frequently Asked Questions
In that regard, you want a business coach that you get along with from a personality standpoint. You also want a coach that will work with what you consider success. Some coaches are strictly for growth and an exit strategy. Other business coaches are more fluid and can help you on a more localized scale.
Because of the differences between personalities and belief systems, most business coaches offer a free session. That free session is for you to find out what that coach can offer you.
If that business coach uses that time to sell you on a coaching package, walk away. A free coaching session with Draw In Customers Business Coaching is available and we do not sell you on anything. We simply ask what you would like the next steps to be at the end of our coaching session. We hold nothing back.
Just about every successful business person has a business coach or mentor or group of people they feel comfortable with enough to discuss business challenges and find ways to improve. No one is impervious to improvement.
Think of the best athletes. Can you think of any that did not have a coach?
Even business coaches themselves utilize other business coaches.
1) What you as a client can do between coaching sessions.
2) What you as a client feels is most beneficial.
3) What the business coach feels is manageable.
Basically you as a client will need to take some actions between coaching sessions, in addition to the typical work you already have. This is the biggest limiting factor to frequency of sessions.
Typical results can show up in just one session. Though a series of 3-5 sessions have proven to build upon each other and leave our clients with a freedom they had never dreamed of.
However, you need to find the time to meet with us. Commit to making that happen, either with us or other time management assistance of some kind.
This is not to say that we are life coaches. Quite the contrary.
Typical topics include:
Employee issue resolution
Work Life balance
Increasing time off
Of course, this list is just the beginning. Your business may have other topics you would like to discuss with your business coach.
Because of this stringent policy, we allow our clients to speak freely about their problems and challenges in business with no fear of this information leaving the business coaching session.
We have all of our business coaching clients sign a confidentiality agreement that details what precautions are taken with their privacy in mind.
That said, an experienced, talented coach will offer coaching for typically between a few hundred dollars and a few thousand dollars, dependent on coaching terms and scheduling. Some coaches, like Anthony Robbins, get paid over a million dollars a year to coach an individual client. Some business coaches offer some coaching at no cost.
The price is not the important question. The real question is the value that coach provides you and your business. If a business coach can help you grow your revenue 50% in less than a year while decreasing your actual working hours by 10 hours per week, what is that worth to you?
Define what you want your business coach to help you with before you start comparing prices.
You can join a gym, but you cannot pay someone to do your push-ups or run laps for you. Only you can perform those actions. With your commitment and our expertise, your business is limited only by your beliefs.
*Pro-rated refunds will be calculated based on initial coaching term and term actually used. A 25% disappointment penalty will be subtracted from the refund which will be paid within 90 days of our cancellation of your commitment. Basically, it is in your best interest to do as your business coach says.
That said, how many business owners do you know that have a business that does not affect their life in some way outside of their business? Your life and your business are so entwined together that it is often tough to distinguish them.
Let's just say we offer life coaching for business owners by concentrating our coaching mostly on their business.
Many clients choose to meet just once per month, or as needed with no formal contract needed.
However the majority of our clients choose to meet with us on a routine basis, with an agreement that lasts generally for six months to a year. If you want to sign up for a longer term, there is a lower overall cost.
