  1. What is an Online Business Coach?
    An online Business Coach is someone who educates you and works closely with you to know your online business options. Since there are many ways to earn a living on line, an experienced Online Business Coach will help you find the business that suits your lifestyle, skill level and financial goals.
  2. Who needs an Online Business Building Coach?
    Coaching works when there are two factors present: 1) The client is willing to grow, and 2) There is a gap between where they are now and where they want to be. Successful coaching clients know the value of sharing ideas with someone who understands them and is willing to source them to succeed. This is accomplished through planning, accountability, consulting, challenging and listening. Coaching works because of three unique features: SYNERGY: Client and coach become a team, focusing on the client”s goals and needs and accomplishing more than the client would alone. STRUCTURE: With a coach, the client takes more actions, thinks bigger and gets the job done, thanks to the accountability the coach provides. EXPERTISE: The coach knows how to help people make better decisions, set the best goals, develop new skills for communicating and restructure their professional and personal lives for maximum productivity
  3. Where do you start with a coach?
    Most coaches begin with a special client meeting or call to get to know each other. The coach wants to hear about the client’s goals, needs, and problems. The client wants to get comfortable with the coach. During this meeting, both parties design a list of goals and a game plan to reach these goals.
  4. How do the coaching sessions work?
    Coaching is usually done over the phone. In addition to allowing frequent, regular contact, it makes it easy to stay in the “coaching relationship”, since the client can call from their office, home, car or hotel. The person coached completes a coaching call strategy form prior to each call, describing the current challenges and the progress they’ve made since the last call. Coaching sessions vary according to individual needs from 1 hour sessions per week to more or less. The focus of the call is determined by the client. The coach helps them to solve the problems and make the most of the opportunities. When they are missing a principle or distinction, we help bring it to clarification. When they are taking on a large goal, we help them design a system for winning. We bring out the clients best by offering advice, guidance, helping them strategize and celebrating the wins. There is often “fieldwork”, where the client is given a formula, new perspective or a challenge to try something in a new way. That forms the basis for the next call.
  5. What happens when you begin a contract with a coach?

    You create momentum to achieve more, be more balanced and develop more powerful management skills.

  6. How can a Manager/Executive use a coach?
    Coaching creates an environment where there is freedom from judgment and freedom from expectations that executive behave according to typical corporate mandates. In this environment it is safe to question, to appear vulnerable, to observe, to explore, experiment, to learn and change.
    That allows the executive to use the coach…
    …To reach high targets and quotas. Accomplishing this consistently requires a manager who also coaches a team to work together to reach extraordinary goals.
    …For business planning, budgeting and goal-setting.
    …To integrate business and personal life for balance.
