As you and your business grows, do you find yourself overseeing more and more business functions—some of them less familiar? An experienced business coach can help you improve your skills, facilitate your decision-making and support you in your pursuit to take your business to the next level.

Who benefits from business coaching?
Business coaching is recommended for professionals and businesses preparing for rapid growth, new markets, exporting or for those confronted with unfamiliar challenges. It can also help companies wanting to implement support mechanisms for their management team. Business coaching benefits companies that want:

  • Coaching and development of managerial skills for professionals, business owners or other members of the management team
  • Renewed commitment from the management team to a strategic vision and action plan
  • A disciplined approach for reviewing business results against agreed-upon objectives
  • Increased energy and enthusiasm
  • Enhanced communications, coordination, and decision-making processes

Professional Mentoring

Mentoring by empathetic and experienced business professionals who help you achieve your personal and professional goals. With experience developing and operating successful businesses, we offer advice and guidance.

We generally work with professionals in the service-to-consumer companies, so we can specialize and become experts in most facets of the industry. A business mentor helps you create a strong strategy customized for your profession and then we are able to mentor you. Having industry relevance provides us the relevance and credibility to encourage successful behaviors in you. We help you create the measurements and benchmarks that allow you to track and manage the process of implementing your personal and professional model.

Our process works because we help you create a business model for you, then we assist with the implementation of this plan and hold you accountable for achievement. As you encounter challenges in this process we are available to assist in moving to the next stage in your personal and professional development.

The advantages of using a mentor
Mentors can help you step back from your business and look at the “big picture”, identifying strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats that you may have overlooked. They can also serve as a sounding board for your ideas, and help you to develop these ideas. Providing connections to key business people and customers is another role that a mentor will serve.

A successful, growing business brings new challenges such as hiring new staff, raising new capital and entering new markets. A mentor can offer helpful advice, caution against potential pitfalls and instil confidence in your plans.

Having a mentor won’t automatically fix all your professional and business challenges. It takes time and effort to implement changes. We can help you set goals and milestones as well make you accountable for delivering on them.

The terms are often used interchangeably when in fact they are key differences:

  • Mentoring is much more relational, whereas coaching is functional.
  • You coach to teach a skill and improve current productivity and performance.
  • Coaching is generally to achieve a specific goal or objective and for a specific duration.
  • Mentoring takes on a longer term and broader focus.
  • It’s not limited to current performance or current activities.
  • The focus of mentoring is more on preparing a person for future challenges and giving him or her life skills as well as technical skills
A mentor may also coach; however, a coach is not a mentor.
