BEFORE YOU HIRE A COACH
Are you ready and willing to be coached?
Will you be open minded and not take the advice from your coach personally or negatively?
Make sure you feel good about the person you hire as you coach so you don’t have buyers remorse.
Does your coach have hands on experience in starting and operating a company or have they just gone to school?
Know what you are looking for before you start.
A coach isn’t there to coddle you they are being paid there to hold you accountable to move you up the success ladder.
Be prepared to hear things that you may not want to hear but know they are for your own good.
Commit to the homework – it’s for your benefit not theirs.
Don’t expect sugar coating – your coach may tell you like it is and you may not like it. So be open.
How do you know if you need to hire a coach?
If you feel overwhelmed with the day to day operations of your business.
