Coaching for Performance

What is Business Coaching?

Vision Strategy Accountability

A business coach is there to help you set and reach your goals, they will also hold you accountable to the goals you set. They will help you develop, customise and then fully understand how business systems should be utilised within your business. A business coach like Chris Whelan should have many years experience owning and running businesses. A business coach can help grow, sustain or build and sell your business. They will also help you transition a family owned business from parents to children.

A business coach will help with processes covering all facets of your business, including human resources, financials, training, business plan, goal settings, sales tactics, marketing and reporting.

How do you know you need a Coach?

Time Team Money

Many businesses have successfully grown from nothing to 10 or 15 staff only to find themselves working harder than ever and not making the money they should be. Ideally businesses who use a coach from the inception have less difficulties growing and sustaining a business model which is less taxing on the business owner's time.

Here are some other reasons you may need a business coach:

  • Is your business generating less cash than you’d like?
  • Are you struggling to recruit, retain & develop the great talent you need?
  • Are you looking for fast and effective improvements in your business?
  • Are you working longer hours than you’d like?
  • Are your marketing and sales campaigns delivering less than you’d like?

You want a Coach - what next?

Business Background Questionnaire

If you think you need a coach, then congratulations you have passed the first step of being open minded to learn and grow as a person. The obvious questions of,  “will it work for my business?” and “will there be a return on investment?” are very relevant and great questions.

The last thing we want to be is pushy sales people, so in order to gauge how the process works, we must first have a brief phone conversation to discuss your business and reason for calling. If our conversation makes sense, we will then plan a time to meet in the next week or two. Before we meet, we will provide you as much information as you would like in order for you to better understand how we work with businesses. The information we provide will cover things like, businesses we have worked with, client testimonials, YouTube videos and audio links on our website. We can even put you in touch with some current customers.

Before our first meeting we like to gather as much information about you and your business as we can, we do this through a Business Background Questionnaire. It’s also important for you to know we don’t charge for the first meeting, so there is no excuse for not taking the first step!

ActionCOACH has been helping people and businesses to work through these kinds of issues for over 25 years. The knowledge and systems developed over that time have brought significant improvements to hundreds of thousands of businesses around the world.

When you’re ready to massively improve your business, your income and your lifestyle, call to arrange a complimentary consultation and together we’ll explore the possibilities for you and your business.
