Do I need a business coach?
Jade Jemma, Sales Business Coach and Strategist
Changes in 2020 in the coaching and mentoring sector you need to know about!
Let’s face it, we all want business success and as a sales coach and strategist who is known for my kind but direct delivery, here are some considerations when it comes to finding the best business coach.
So, before you frantically type ‘business coach London’ (or wherever you are based) into Google and invest in the first coach you stumble across, discover these 3 key points that will empower your selection when it comes to finding the right mentor to help you navigate your business through 2020.
All you need to do is remember these three simple points right now…
It’s a buyers’ market
You are in a prime position to be selective and not be sold to, so pushy sales funnels and high-end tech does not impress so much this year.
With constant tech advances and automation at our fingertips, just because someone can build a social media bot, or set up an automated offering does not make them a better business coach than the person who uses simple systems and a human approach to grow and develop their clients skills.
On that note…
Look for real world experience
Anyone can sign up to an online programme and then call themselves an expert with some sales copy swipes and a fancy logo.
However, real world experience is hard to beat.
Does your potential business coach have real world business skills?
Considerations such as their career pathway, transitional skills and track record say more about their capabilities than an impressive photo shoot and a catchy tagline.
Your network is your net worth
It is a wise move to grow and expand relationships to maintain an ongoing network.
The element of know, like and trust still stands in 2020, more so in fact as we look for referrals so as not to get burnt investing in the wrong person.
At a time when business budgets are tight, having a trusted network to seek feedback from is vital to ensure no costly mistakes are made.
Choosing a business coach with a diverse, accessible network means an investment in them is a gateway to an assortment of talent not all coaches allow access to.
Finding the right business coach can greatly increase your sales
Why take my advice?
Having come from a corporate sales background and studying business at University to Masters level, I am very much from the business arena.
By transitioning my skills into bespoke coaching packages my clients benefit from key leadership and sales strategies used to successfully and consistently create desired results in their business.
As an example, I believe a genuine network of fellow entrepreneurs and business owners together can achieve great things. Impacting all parties, the planet and its people. A great business coach should encourage a quality network and be happy to connect you to opportunities and collaborations.
Finding the right business coach can greatly increase your sales, business growth and most importantly your ability to meet your business mission with support and guidance from someone who has walked the walk.
In 2020 and beyond be sure to do your research, have a chat with your potential coach about both of your expectations and explore the possibilities before you jump in.
