What’s the Difference Between Coaching and Consulting?
Normally a consultant is retained for a short time to solve a specific problem and leaves. His primary function is to tell the business owner what to do to solve the problem.
A Licensed business coach will guide you to make the best decision for yourself and your company. Being with a good coach is a real learning experience. He has fresh ideas, resources, suggested books and articles to read, as well as people for you to meet in the community. For a short time you will be tracking how you spend your time. You will be focusing on how 20% of your customers generate 80% of your business. You will be having personal assessments on your key employees to really understand what makes them tick, then a combined key employee assessment to see how your key people are working together. This will amaze you. You will have the keys to get more out of your people and help them find greater enjoyment in their positions.
Since our coaches have many years of personal and business experience, they frequently become your confidante about your business, personal, and spiritual lives. There are very few people that business owners can unload on. Your business coach is the exception. He is there for you to unload on. He understands what you are up against on a day to day basis and can help with fresh, outside insights that are kept in strict confidence.
