As business consultants, business coaches and advisors , we have found that every business and business owner has differences and how they would like to receive help is very dependent on how they like to learn or have things done within their business. Some business owners choose to learn what they need to do within the business on their own, while others want to involve staff members. In other cases we find some business owners want the work performed for them without any interaction while others want to learn along beside you. It is for this reason, we provide different delivery methods for our clients.
Business Coaching is provided through one-on-one sessions with a coach for 1-3 participants which are based on set goals. The participants are guided through and given direction in each session based on an agenda which is based on meeting the overall goals and objectives. The participants will have hands-on learning and will have homework to complete which helps with understanding.
