An executive business coach is someone who can produce outstanding results with companies they are serving. The only challenge is that so many people are calling themselves executive business coaches. Some of these people are not producing positive results. Following are 9 questions you must answer before you conclude on your next executive business coach:
- Who needs an executive business coach?
Anyone who would like to grow as person, grow as business individual and increase their business with outcome of better should consider aligning themselves with an executive business coach. People who have strong focus on “leaving a legacy” for their family tends to work with an executive business coach and successful in delivering to themselves and their families.
- What are the duties of executive business coach?
An executive business coach is someone who works with the C- level executives with an expertise in certain areas such as staff development, marketing, systemizing the business, hiring, business growth, sales process, time management and more. Know in advance where you need help so you can find a coach with right mix of growth experience you need help with.
- How can executive business coach help grow my business?
Start with a gap analysis. You may not know how to complete an in-depth gap analysis that an executive business coach can help refine; start with as much detail and gaps you can identify. While custom coaching programs can be developed, 90% of the time a business coach we focus on four areas: Marketing, Sales, Operations and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and Service Level Agreements (a.k.a SLA) process development. The outcome for the executive business coach is to close whatever gaps the business owner needs help in.
- What should I expect from an executive business coach?
If you hire the right executive business coach, they should be able to give you best and worst case estimates after initial review. While this growth typically stays between 25 to100 percent per year, we have seen 300-1500% growth in companies.
- How much is an executive business coach?
The compensation (fee) for an executive business coach depends on the coach’s experience, expertise and how much potential they’ll see in team. Executive business coaches charge between $400 and $2800 per session and sometimes a performance bonus for the increase of revenue from seven to ten percent annually.
- What Guarantees I will receive from my executive business coach?
I strongly believe a business coach must walk the talk and give a 100 percent money back guarantee.
- Do you have to attend a coaching school to be a good executive business coach?
Not necessarily, although some people preach about how coaches need to be certified in order to become an executive business coach and I can respect that option. I would rather see a money-back guarantee, and how much a person can increase my business than someone going to a fancy coaching program.
- While researching I saw conversation about Executive Business Coach vs Ultimate Business Growth Strategies. What are they?
An Ultimate Business Growth Strategies (UBGS) are in the top 1% of all Executive Business Coaches. They have clinical psychology experience, business experience, tracked business growth strategies and on top of that; they know how to push you beyond your comfortable zone.
The UBGS can work with your staff on behavior problems and find ways to motivate them to become the best of the best. A UBGS can take an average manager and make him or her into a powerful manager or take an average sales person and make them into a top sales person in few short weeks.
At times UBGS can act like a therapist because sometimes staff members have behavior problems which affect their job, we can help find the solution.
- Is online coaching effective and right tool for my team?
With advancement and acceptance of technology and post Covid world when we all learned to work with Zoom and other remote connectivity tools; Coaches using Online coaching have reached new heights and helped teams in ways that was not possible before. Just as a 1:1 (one on one) in-person coaching; an online coaching program will give you a game plan with exercise and practices that needs to be reported and discussed every week. With online coaching, you can access a coach at schedule that was not possible in typical business hours. Just as one on one sessions, Online coaching session’s usually run for 60 minutes per week.
Group coaching follows similar process and use similar methods and allow participants to join from across the world and work together for mutual improvement. I personally created and delivered very successful team coaching programs with team members located in United States, Europe, Asia/Middle East; joining session at the same time as they all had to learn to work with each other. Results were exceptional as it helped them increase confidence in each other’s abilities, help understand culture and focus on mutual goal of growing themselves and business they work for.
Group coaching typically meets twice per week.
Online coaching also allow us to record sessions and help team revisit the session that was not possible before.
The best way to produce results with an online coach is to sign up for 12 months and create four 90 days game plans and tune them as you continue to improve as individual and as a business. Remember, with your coach, you goal is to grow your business at least 25% and possibly 100% in first 12 months alone.
I will see you at the top!
