Business LEADers need Coaches

You have great ideas for your business, you’ve even developed a business plan, but business is still slow and you need help taking your ideas to the next level.

Business coaching, brenwoodlifecoach,

Consider business coaching as a way to effectively build your business, achieve your goals and balance your life and your business. Coaching provides you with a way to interact with a professional coach who has your best interests at heart. Business coaches can be a mix of an accountability partner, sounding board, cheerleader and even emotional support. Brentwood Life Coach specializes in helping you ensure all aspects of your life, work, together with the ultimate aim of ensuring your business works. An effective business coach will help you determine not just the direction you want your business to go in, but will also help identify actionable steps to take to achieve the goals you and your coach have set.

Business Coach Benefits

Meet with your coach on a regular basis. Meeting weekly or bi-weekly will keep you accountable and focused on your goals.

A business coach can help you solidify your plans and proposals for your business.

Having a sounding board has been proven to be the most helpful tool in the business world.

The best thing about this benefit is that a business coach will give you an unbiased perspective.

Coaching helps you identify holes in your business plan and give you ways to fill in the gaps.

Create a solid plan to push your business forward.

Take a look at these stats on how business coaches are helping leaders.

  • A recent study of Executive Coaching in a Fortune 500 firm by MetrixGlobal reported a 529% return on investment and significant intangible benefits to the business.
  • A survey by Manchester Inc. of 100 executives found that coaching provided an average return on investment of almost six times the cost of the coaching
  • An internal report of the Personnel Management Association showed that when training is combined with coaching, individuals increase their productivity by an average of 86% compared to 22% with training alone

New Year’s Resolutions, Don’t Bother

Don’t make any New Year Resolutions until you read this.

So many of us make New Year Resolutions and have great intentions to complete our goals and dreams. A resolution is only as good as the resolve, because when the inspiration dies down and old habits return the resolution reaches a point of dissolution.

Brentwood Life Coach

Make a Revolution

Create a plan of action with steps and ways to succeed. A coach can help you do just that. Have you been saying yes to a lot of things that were not a “HECK YES I wanna do that”? Have you been saying no to things that you knew you were really meant to do? It’s time for a revolution.

4 Steps to succeed in your Revolution

1. Set a Target– Ask yourself if; “Is my goal practical?”, “Is it part of my overall life plan?”

 

2. Steps to Succeed  & achieve Ask yourself; “What do I have to do and what will I need in order to achieve my goal?” Plan out your actions steps.

 

3. Time Frame We all work best with a deadline. Set yourself time limits to fulfill your steps in number 2

 

4. Make Yourself Accountable This is where a coach comes in. Hire a coach to report your progress to and to do follow ups. A coach will encourage and motivate you to continue the Revolution. Declare it publicly. What we pay attention to grows and thrives. This is what makes goal setting, declarations and resolutions a sound strategy.

 

Pit falls to avoid

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that you will only set the behavior and attitude change will come from within. For real change to occur in any area of your life or business you MUST actively interrupt your current environment. The bigger the goal or intention, the larger the disruption.

Don’t under-estimate small environment changes. The simplest of changes can make all the difference.

People in your business or life are the biggest structure to re-train, dismantle or get support from. You cannot design an environment that is conducive to your growth without including others.

Coaching College Graduates and High School Students

41% of College  Graduates are employed in jobs that don’t require a college degree. Most companies lack the resources, funds or patience to train those without experience.  If you find yourself wanting to make a change but not knowing where to start, getting professional direction from a business/career coach may be just what you need to help you land your dream job.

High School Student: Only about 1/3 of ACT tested high school graduates selected a college major that is a good fit with their interest, according to the College Choice Report.

file0002135280483

It’s important for students to have the information they need to make the best decisions about their future,” said Jon Erickson, ACT president of education and career solutions. “They should be made aware that choosing a college major that reflects their interests will give them a better chance of succeeding and could also contribute to their satisfaction and happiness in school and on the job.”   Students who might be confused about choosing a major need help. Sometimes when confusion sets in they begin to second guess their goals and choices. The comprehensive and individualized high school coaching process helps students identify their talents and interests. Once they discover their strengths, goals and passions, declaring a major and/or career path become clearer. Most students want such assistance. This helps avoid the expense and stress of changing majors, and giving parents peace of mind.
I have developed a three-month plan to help students and college graduates examine their options, strategize, set short and long-term goals, define their talents, optimize their time, learn how to manage current and future transitions and explore academic and career opportunities.

Who Needs a Life Coach?

What type of person would benefit from life coaching?

1. People who are stuck.  You need to make a decision about a job, a new career, your relationship, or you want to go after your dream, but feel paralyzed. You ask yourself  “Where do I begin”, and you have questions looming over your head that keep you from taking that first step.  A life coach can help you discover what is important to you about this decision. And a life coach will help you clarify the vision of your ideal future.

2. Those who are wandering.  Maybe you have no idea what you want to do with your life. You are in need of direction and a concrete plan. You might have just graduated from college in a field that you no longer love.  Or you are in a job you no longer enjoy.  A life coach helps you discover new possibilities and develop a new perspective, and will guide you through the muddy waters of transition.

3. Men and Women who want better relationships. If you’ve just left a bad relationship, your current relationship is going nowhere fast, your marriage needs a jump-start, or you need skills for healthy communication.  With a life coach you will gain clarity and focus on what an ideal relationship with your loved one would look like. Make a plan to rebuild trust and bring joy back into your relationships.

4. Empty Nest Moms & Second Half Dads.  The kids are gone and you say “Now What?”, you want to define your new role and find “what lights you up”, you’ve been working for years but now you need fresh motivation to finish strong, you want to transition into part-time work. Through Life Coaching you will rediscover your purpose, identify what you would like your life to look like and create a road map with an action plan.

Life Coaching: Living the life you want to live.

Living the Life you want to live.

Henry Thoreau said “In the long run, you only hit what you aim at.” So many of us go along our lives without aim.

” I want to be a good person, I want to have respectful teenagers, I would like to travel when I retire” are just a few goals I’ve heard this week. Having a desire to aim for IT puts you 1/4 of the way there. But then you must mark your aim and move forward towards achieving it. “Yes, I would like to start a business this year” but I don’t know how to begin?” “I would love to quit my job and stay home with my children.” “I want to retire in Arizona, how can I make that happen?” Finding clarity and a plan can be a daunting task, but here are a few questions that might be helpful.

 Where would you like to be in 5 years?

What is preventing you from moving forward with your goal?

Can you explain your long-term goal on paper?

Where are you spending most of your time?

Do you know someone who can help you in reaching your goal?

These helped me reach certain goals in my life. I spent many years wandering, many months wasting time and countless days doing things I did not want to do. I needed to aim, and shoot for my goals.

If you want a different outcome then you need a new action plan.

Make a plan

Move towards you goal
