WHAT INDUSTRY IS SAYING
THE VALUE OF A BUSINESS COACH
There isn’t anything else that you receive 100 percent dedicated attention to you. A business coach is somebody who helps you move from where you are to where you want to be, and does so by solely focusing on your goals.
Business coaching has gone from fad to fundamental.
…working with a great coach is an imperative not only for athletes but for anyone with career or personal development goals.
Top athletes use coaches. Why don’t CEO’s?
Ingredients of a successful coaching relationship: Is the executive highly motivated to change?
Business leaders can increase their success at selling development when they discover the value of looking for leaks in their human capital and making a plan to fix them before they drain the company of its most important resource – its people.
…coaches help you identify and focus on what’s important, which accelerates your success.
