Productivity Is More Than Getting Things Done

Business coaches are strong assets for business owners because they hold the owner accountable for their own progress.  They offer different perspectives on problems, offer guidance as well as challenges, and objectively observe how a business operates and what can be improved.

Productivity is more than performing tasks.  If you’re busy but not productively focusing on your goals, you are not being productive.  A business coach will improve your productivity in all aspects of your business (and life).  Here are some examples:

  1. You will step out of your comfort zone. Tasks that make you uncomfortable are often tasks that will push your business into forward momentum, such as real-life networking or presenting to your local Chamber of Commerce.  Performing these tasks will get easier with practice and will allow you to develop relationships with complementary businesses.  If you gain new clients in the process, that’s a sign of productivity achieved more quickly than if you’d stayed in your online bubble.
  2. Your coach will advise, mentor, or teach you as needed. Your business coach doesn’t want to take over your business; she wants YOU to become stronger in your ability to lead the business forward and she won’t be afraid to correct you if she sees a misstep.  If you listen to your coach’s advice (that’s your choice), you will become more effective in your leadership skills as well as your business skills
  3. Your firm will run more smoothly. Through her objective third-party lens, your business coach will see where your operations can use improvement.  That may mean automating certain aspects or hiring a team to handle certain tasks.  When your business runs effectively, clients are happy and you’ll keep your overhead costs down.  Effective operations also allow your assistants or employees to be more productive because they have the proper tools to complete their jobs.
  4. You’ll learn how to transform your ideas into reality. No longer will you keep all your product ideas in your head, unable to decide which one to develop.  A business coach will help analyze your ideas and ask questions about the viability and effectiveness of each product.  She will also guide you through the production process to complete your product quickly and cost-effectively.

Smart Advisor-CEO’s realize that they can’t know everything about every subject, especially if they have no  previous experience running a business.  This is where an experienced business coach (and former financial executive) can become the business’s top asset, guiding you to financial success.  If you’re ready to hire a smart business coach, schedule a discovery call with me today.
