Learn from the Expert: Your Business will be on the Right Track

Business Coaching is all about GROWTH. Business growth. Personal growth. Career growth. As the CEO of your firm, growth is your department”.

These are the lines of Suzanne Muusers, a Business Coach expert from Scottsdale, Arizona. According to Suzanne, there are seven areas to cover in business coaching. When coaching businessmen, you need to persuade them to figure out the kind of future they want to have for themselves and for their company. You have to empower them to think strategically and work weekly towards their goals. Success is never an accident. Smart thinking and open-mindedness are essential.

Below are the 7 questions that you might consider asking your clients during the coaching session:

  1. What is your strategy for business growth this year? Your clients should willingly think of their own strategies to make their businesses prosper. Guide them in determining a good strategy that can be long-term.
  2. What is your strategy for personal growth this year? Learning and growing comes hand in hand. You have to coach your clients that they have to seek self-development programs or books that will aid them enhance their expertise. “Readers are leaders”; Suzanne says. Being a successful business coach is a reflection of one’s effectiveness. Persuade them that their knowledge and skills are important for their business growth.
  3. What new target markets will you seek this year? Educating businessmen to target a market that needs their products and services is a must. Marketing everyone is not effectively marketing. They have to pinpoint their prospects.
  4. How can you increase revenue from your top five clients? Enlighten your coaches that they have to keep their own customers. They need to establish a good working relationship; think of ways to improve their services. It’s far less expensive to keep a current client than it is to go after new clients.
  5. What three things do you need to do more effectively this year to maximize your opportunities? Encourage your clients that there is always room for improvement. Even the CEOs of Top companies have been seeking for other alternatives yearly. As a business coach, it is your responsibility to get your customers’ commitment. Challenge them to never let go of opportunities that come their way.
  6. What new resources or technology do you need for optimal growth? Inform businessmen that latest technology is an advancement to better manage their businesses. Ask them about their inputs on using new software. Inculcate to them the importance of improving productivity.
  7. What three marketing tactics do you need to implement to achieve your goals? Ask your customers how they plan to achieve their goals. Help them identify and focus on specific ways to make their company grow. Make them visualize.

Using the 7 questions indicated above on your coaching sessions will help business owners to succeed not only in their businesses but also in their career and personal life. You can help them gain more confidence to becoming a better leader and be on the right track.
