Small Business Coaching
What is Small Business Coaching?
In Small Business Coaching, I take the same processes that I use for Executive Coaching and apply them to your business, team or group. I may work with a select group, team, dyad, or the whole company. Our sessions will be individualized to your needs. They can take place in-person, via video conference or telephone.
Coaching, whether individual, team, or group, occurs within the context of your organization and its culture. I utilize a systems perspective and appreciate the unique organizational culture and environment of your business. Through the systems perspective lens, I will be able to facilitate the strategies and leadership that create alignment with your business objectives and customer needs.
As your Small Business Coach, we will work together so that your managers and executives can clearly and confidently assess and embrace your business challenges in a thoughtful systematic manner. Coaching accelerates organizational learning and helps your company perform to its greatest potential. I will be the catalyst for your executives and managers to be creative in their thinking about business challenges. This on-the-job, real-time process allows people to master new skills and experiment with new styles of leadership while receiving time sensitive feedback. This Coaching model creates meaningful and sustained change for your executives and managers both professionally and personally.
Coaching is not therapy or a quick-fix. It is a proven leadership development process that accelerates learning, increases self-awareness, and enhances communication skills.
Unlike leadership training where you gather off-site to learn for a day or a week, Coaching focuses on the environment where you need to lead. Coaching engages learning where learning and challenges happen, within the work environment. This encourages your executives and managers to apply their new skills, experiment with new techniques and gather feedback in real-time and real space.
Coaching requires executives and managers to be inquisitive and curious about themselves and their impact on others. They will be asked to explore their leadership style and identify areas that they or their superiors would like to improve upon. Small Business Coaching may include requesting input from colleagues, subordinates and managers.
Your executives and managers will work together with me to reflect on their and/or the company’s past performance, areas of greatest success and strength, recurring challenges and conflicts, personal and company’s mission statement, patterns of interaction and more to obtain a comprehensive and well informed perspective. Equipped with our comprehensive perspective, I will facilitate the exploration of new behaviors and approaches so that the identified changes can be attained and sustained.
My more than 25 years of experience as a family therapist, entrepreneur, small business owner and Coach provides me with a unique skill set and perspective to facilitate the professional changes you identify. I bring my years of clinical experience, my vast knowledge of group dynamics, and expertise in facilitating the development of effective communication to you and your business endeavors.
