There are many times in our business where we can feel stuck. We may hit a wall of our own self-limiting beliefs, or it could be that we have a setback with loss of clients or challenges in our market.
At these times calling upon a business coach can really help get you unstuck. However one of the most common things we see is that many people simply lack the courage to ask for help. As humans we can have these feelings that we should be able to do it all on our own, that asking for help is a sign of weakness. In fact, the opposite is true.
When you are able to recognise that an outside perspective will help you, that is a sign of great self-awareness and therefore strength. A coach has a neutrality to a situation that means they can therefore provide a different opinion. Being asked probing questions can feel uncomfortable but it is in that discomfort that growth usually takes place.
The difference between a coach and a mentor is through the questioning process. A coach will ask questions that require you to find the answer, as opposed to a mentor who will tell you ‘this is how I did it’. There is benefit in both approaches, but with a neutral mindset, a coach puts the power in your hands – you have all the answers within, they are just teasing them out of you!
If you’re unsure as to whether you’d benefit from some business coaching, consider these questions….
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, coaching can help you. At DICE our business coaching is not off the shelf – we get to know you and your business so that we can become that real trusted advisor to you. Our coaching relationships go deep, so if it’s a superficial cheerleader coach you’re looking for, we are not for you. But if you are ready to take action on your big goals and would like someone on your team who is rooting for your success, we can help.
