What does a business coach do?
A business coach or business mentor helps you achieve your goals in business. You wouldn’t expect a sports team to make the grand final without a great coach, and business is no different. A business coach is on your side, viewing your business from an objective position, and keeping a close eye on the priorities in the business. Your coach isn’t there in the business day in and day out like you are, and as a result, won’t get distracted from the main game by minor hiccups in the week.
A business coach isn’t a consultant – your coach won’t do the work for you. But your coach will help lay out your strategy, keep you on track, and provide the expertise to guide you.
Is a Tenfold Business Coach right for me?
As you look for a business coach or a business mentor, you will find many different approaches to business coaching. At Tenfold, we think that the most important thing you need in a business coach is experience, both in coaching and in all different areas of the business world. Our team all have backgrounds in business, which means they bring years of experience to add to their business coaching.
Where does business coaching happen?
We do all of our coaching from our offices in Malvern East, in Melbourne’s Eastern Suburbs. Some of our clients come to the office to meet face to face, and others prefer to be coached over the phone.
Can I meet my coach before we make any decisions about coaching?
Of course. It’s important to have a good relationship with your business coach, and for your potential coach to get a good understanding of your business. If you’re considering an ongoing coaching program, the first step is to set up a time for you and your coach to meet. This first meeting is a no obligation chance for you to meet your coach and see if you like the idea of working together.
How do I know which coach is right for me?
When you contact us, we’ll spend some time getting to know you and your business, which will allow us to recommend the best coach for you.
I’m not sure that my kind of business can be coached
The Tenfold Business Coaching team has worked with businesses of all sizes and structures, and across many, many industries. Any business can be coached … if the owner of the business is 100% committed.
I’ve been burned by a hard sell before
At Tenfold Business Coaching, we don’t think that any good comes of a coaching program that is any way forced. Business coaching needs 100% commitment from you as a business owner, or it simply will not work. So, when you meet with one of our business coaches, you can feel assured that you won’t be pushed to sign up at the end of the meeting, if you prefer to consider further.
Can you guarantee I will get the result I want from coaching?
In a word – no. We can guarantee that your coach will deliver excellent business coaching, but as the business owner it is you who will actually do the work in the business, to put strategies into place. Your coach will support you and give you resources to assist you, but your coach won’t do the work for you. So, the success of your coaching experience depends on your commitment to follow through on the strategies you and your coach put into place.
My business needs special knowledge to run. How can someone outside my industry help me?
You know how to run your business in your industry. You’re the expert there. What our business coaches know is how to run a profitable, stable, successful business – and that knowledge is not industry dependent.
Do you do joint ventures with potential clients?
No. Our business coaches operate on a simple fee for service structure only.
