FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Here are just a few of the most common questions I get asked as business coach.
What is a business coach?
A business coach or business mentor is someone who helps business owners see their ‘blind spots’ so that they can grow and improve themselves. A business coach typically works with a business owner on whatever their business needs are, but in general, will help improve all facets of a business such as increasing profitability, leadership skills, marketing strategies, goal setting, time management, business finances etc. The business coach will help to provide the business owner with clarity around where they want to take their business and at the same time be a sounding board for the business owner to be able to make the right decisions.

What skills does a successful Sydney business coach have?
Below are some of the core skills needed for a successful Sydney business coaching and mentoring experience:
Leadership Skills – A business coach is more than just a sounding board. They need to help you improve your leadership skills by being an example. They need to ‘feel’ where their client is at and in fact, should always be one step ahead in understanding what the coaching client needs at a particular time. This includes making sure the client is always kept accountable, no matter what.
An Array of Different Business Skills – A business coach should have lots of experience in every facet of running a business. Marketing, sales, recruitment, planning, leadership skills, systems and procedures to name a few. Having a background in finance or management will also be highly adventitious. While people from all backgrounds can offer business coaching for small business owners on how to run their businesses successfully, the skills required for a business success coach is in a class of its own.
Flexibility with Clients – Contrary to popular belief, SME business coaching should not be a cookie-cutter process. Obviously specific ‘best practises’ should be followed, but it is important that there is enough flexibility for the business owner to design the business with the ideas they are passionate about. The most effective Sydney business coaches are flexible and understand this when working with their clientele. They understand that while yes, there are some set approaches or steps involved in any given situation. Often, clients might come up with random questions, which means the business coach must be open-minded enough to provide them with all of the necessary feedback needed without having predetermined ideas about where things should go next.

What is the difference between business coaching and mentoring?
Business coaching is a partnership between a business coach and a business owner for the purpose of accelerating the business owner’s results. Business coaching is different from mentoring in that it is not about giving advice or sharing personal experiences, but rather it is about holding the business owner accountable to achieving specific results, providing support and guidance when needed, and creating an environment where the business owner feels safe to take risks.
