Business coaching comes in many flavours. In fact, it almost feels like every business coach is different. This is probably fair because coaching is a very personal service and it is delivered, in person, by a business coach with a unique set of experiences and knowledge.
However, here at Small Fish, we’ve brought some structure and consistency to business coaching. Our coaches are still individuals, of course, but we use a consistent set of tools and a structured process to help us deliver better coaching programs than we would on our own, programs that really help you drive change into your business and really help you get what you want from your business.
What is business coaching? (And what isn’t it?)
First, we are NOT:
Experts at everything, coming to tell you how to run your business! If you’ve made it this far, you have a pretty good idea of what you are doing.
A magic fairy who can fix everything and get you that Ferrari in our first week of working with you.
Someone you can delegate a difficult job to (not strictly true, but our preference is to help you get it right yourself, rather than remain dependent on us to perform a role in your business)
What we ARE:
Experienced business professionals with access to lots of resources and a proven set of systems and tools who will facilitate a process that will help you improve your business.
That’s not to say that we will do nothing – as I said, we have strong commercial backgrounds, lots of good knowledge of business strategies and lots of good ideas – but the decisions will be yours and the outcomes will be down to you.
Business coaching is a tool you can use to make your business better – to drive change, to make more money, to get some time back for yourself or to wrestle control back for yourself.
You’ll buy the professional services of an experienced and capable business coach who has had commercial experience and some success and that coach will help you work through our (simple) process to work out what’s going on, decide what to do and then make sure you get on and do it.
How does it work?
Business coaching works by helping you decide what to do and then helping make sure you actually do it.
The simple, three step process of Audit, Plan, Action means we (together) figure out what is going on in your business, decide what to do (to get you where you want to go) and then make sure it gets done.
We’ll document a one page plan which will be your strategy for your business for the next 1-3 years.
We’ll meet weekly or fortnightly to make sure you’re implementing the plan, using our tools and resources to help you do the things you can’t do on your own or finding someone else to do them if neither of us is exert in a particular field.
Together, we’ll make decisions about what needs doing (your decision wins, of course...it’s your business) and we’ll make sure that what needs doing gets done.
As our catch phrase says “it’s about getting things done”
