Business Coaching and Business Mentoring

14th Jul , 2016

Business coaching and business mentoring can be applied to all manner of business professionals across all industries. It is a process whereby individuals can be transported from where they are now to where they want to be. A specifically matched business mentor from International Business Mentors ensures the best business coach or mentor will be selected to assist you with their skills, background and experience.


Why Use Business Coaching?

A business coach or mentor can assist in a countless number of scenarios:

  • Business owners may need guidance and assistance to revisit business plans, develop strategy and risk assessments, and clarify the vision of their business to determine how it fits in with their personal goals.
  • Directors, especially those new to the role, can benefit from a business coach or mentor with various issues, namely board papers and reporting, contribution to the board, relationships with the CEO and other key executives, and a confidential and supportive sounding board.
  • CEOs can gain assistance from business coaching from a different perspective, whereby they are coached in the areas of board reporting and board relationships.
  • Senior executives can gain insight and knowledge from a well-matched business coach or mentor. An independent source of support is invaluable in helping senior executives with their business performance, resulting in better business practice and increased loyalty to their employer.


What Does Business Coaching/Mentoring Involve?

A great business person seeks to understand why reaching business growth goals is important, and business coaching provides various points of view from someone more experienced than themselves. After clarifying where a business person would like to take their business, a business coach or mentor can help prioritise what goals and strategies are needed to help progress the business closer to its goal. Typically, a business coach will meet with the business person on a monthly basis to ensure they stay on track and meet all commitments made during the past coaching/mentoring session.

A critical component of business coaching is accountability. A business coach or mentor is not a consultant. They will not do the work for you in your business; rather, they are there to keep you focused on the end result and remind you why it is important. They will motivate you to keep your commitments, act as a sounding board, and when needed, highlight the blind spots of you and your business. They will also challenge you to take control and to make the critical decisions.

Many successful businesses and business people can credit their results in part to business coaching. However, finding the right coach is the key. You need someone who not only has the right background and experience, but who you can easily communicate with, respect, and confide in. International Business Mentors can provide this service. Our business mentors and coaches all have sound business backgrounds and meet all other selective criteria.
