Like it or not, sometimes your relationship with your business coach in Melbourne just doesn’t work out.
And that’s A-okay. Not every relationship will go the distance – nobody’s at fault when this happens.
Sometimes it’s simply a case of your personality not lining up with your business coach. While it might sound like a minor detail, it’s actually a make-or-break factor in my experience – especially with the amount of trust and personal details involved.
Sometimes however, it’s not so innocent.
If you want your relationship with your business coach to go the distance and to enjoy more time and money, you’ll want to keep an eye out for these problems…
Failure #1: You don’t take your business coach seriously
For your coaching relationship to work, you need to value what your business coach in Melbourne brings to the table.
Business coaching is all about helping you lead your dream life. It’s all about empowering you, giving you more money to enable your lifestyle and the time to enjoy it.
I do that by looking at your business and telling you what you can do better and what you need to change.
Needless to say, if you don’t put any value on what I (or any other business coach) says, you aren’t going to have very much to show for your business coaching relationship!
Business coaching isn’t just a fad – it’s a serious profession, and one that gets results at that. For example, I’ve helped over 200 businesses and business owners get out of the holes they’ve dug themselves into.
In summary, listen to what your business coach suggests!
Failure #2: You’re not open or up-front
Honesty is always the best policy – especially when it comes to business.
For business coaching to work, I need to know all about your:
- Life goals and ideal lifestyle
- Business, and where it is currently
- Financial situation
- Workload and work-life balance
- Systems and processes
- Plans and long-term goals
All of this informs my advice and suggestions to you.
Of course, business owners that aren’t willing to share details of their lives and the parts of their business where they struggle, there’s not much a business coach in Melbourne can do.
I know it’s hard pouring your heart out to a relative stranger. But if you want to turn your business and life around, it’s something you’ll have to accept.
Failure #3: Not understanding how your business coach works
Business owners who sign up with a business coach should know from the very beginning what they’re signing up for.
And I don’t just mean thoroughly reading the terms of your contract either!
Far too many business owners come into the business coach without the foggiest idea of how their business coach operates.
Each business coach operates differently. They’ll have unique approaches, as well as personalities – both affect their coaching techniques.
Knowing how your business coach works from the beginning helps you understand the exact process, as well as how your business coach operates.
Take myself for example. I fashion myself as a straight-shooter, and take a “tough love” approach towards my clients. For many clients, this bluntness is exactly what they need.
On top of that, I also come at things from a systems and process perspective. That’s my background, and I strongly believe that systems and processes hold the key to a better business (and by extension, a better lifestyle).
But this doesn’t work for everyone.
This is the type of stuff you need to know about your business coach heading in. When looking for a business coach in Melbourne, be sure to ask candidates how they operate and get a feel for them based on their responses.
It’s a small thing, but it can make the difference between finding someone you “click” with and lushing hundreds of dollars down the drain.
Failure #4: You don’t listen
Plans, advice and frameworks mean nothing if no follow-up action is taken on the part of the business owner.
You might have the best business coach in Melbourne. They might be working wonders with their plans, strategies and approaches.
But if you’re not putting them into action, then what’s the point?
This ties into reason for failure #1 (see above). A lot of people just don’t lend their business coach much credibility. As a result, they don’t follow the advice they’re given.
Needless to say, this is a huge mistake.
