Here on the Business CoPilot blog, we can sometimes get caught up telling you so much about pertinent business issues that we forget to tell you about what we do and why it works so well. Well, no more!

We know that there are proven benefits to having a business coach (and if you don’t believe us, let these people tell you).

Here’s a list of some of the most cited benefits of our service:

1) You’re the Technician

Some people can find themselves in business without feeling that they are a natural business person. Many of our clients are what Michael Gerber would call ‘the Technician’.

In Gerber’s The E-Myth Revisited, the Technician is someone who has skill and expertise in an area, such as an architect or lawyer, and are great at what they do, but might not know how best to build a business around that skill. We use our business experience and knowledge to help you craft a strong business around your talents.

2) We provide an impartial view

It can be difficult to take an objective view of your business when you are a vital part of it. We naturally approach your business with an outsider’s view meaning we can give you impartial advice and opinions. We won’t be critical, only constructive, offering advice on how to grow.

3) “On” rather than “in” the business

This impartiality means that we can help you to work on rather than in your business. We work with you to find the focus and direction necessary to grow, to see your business objectively in all of its component parts, and to assess your vision for the business as a whole.

4) Your confidential sounding board

We provide you with a confidential sounding board and ask you to throw as many ideas at it as you can. We understand that the things which affect you personally also affect the business and your performance, and sometimes talking to someone who can see both the personal and business side can open up sticky points that you weren’t even aware of.

5) Trust

Part of our role as confidential sounding boards means that a trusting relationship is essential, and we are proud of the strong relationships we build with our clients. Opening your books to an outsider can be daunting, but we will always approach them positively and with your interests at the centre of our work.

6) Flexibility

We understand that when you are busy developing your business, time can be an all-too-scarce commodity. We can flex the frequency of meetings and provide the level of support you need, whether it is more or less. Advice is always available at the end of a telephone or via email, if time is not on your side.

7) Vision, plan, focus

Above all, we aim to provide clarity and confidence, through inspecting your vision, helping you create and enact a plan and helping you focus on the business and your goals. We provide support via regular coaching meetings and email and phone contact throughout the process.

Together we think, we plan, we make it happen.
