What is a Business Coach?

Let us help you in your journey to design, build, and grow your business--your way--through consulting and coaching solutions that empower you to succeed! We offer powerful solutions to help businesses:
What results can I expect from working with a Business Coach?
Do I need a Business Coach or a Business Consultant? Or both? What exactly is the difference between the two?
Business consultants are often hired for specific advice and expertise, such as in the area of human resources management or marketing. The focus is on providing assistance, answers, and solving problems as requested by a business owner, mostly externally. Coaching facilitates the discovery of answers that are uniquely your own. A business coach provides guidance, expertise, recommendations, and skill building techniques when appropriate and useful, but a coach will not tell you what to do .Your coach will supply you with ideas, resources, models and systems that are proven to work, but won’t hand you a completed action plan nor assert there is only one right way to accomplish your goals. Depending on the client’s needs, the proper methodology (consulting, coaching, or both) will be recommended.
Contact us for a complimentary no-obligation consultation and coaching session to explore how we can help you.
How long is the Coaching Process?
The process is not a magic wand. Certainly, you have been to a seminar and left recharged and planning wonderful changes. Yet you probably forgot everything from the seminar within ninety days or less. Studies show that the average business book is never read beyond the first chapter! And even if you manage to read books in their entirety, like most you struggle to implement the ideas and concepts presented. Don't feel bad. You're not alone.
Creating lasting change is a process of acquiring skills and developing positive habits. Coaching is a process to help you learn new strategies and behaviors, and to develop positive congruent habits that maximize your life and drive your business forward. The process is important in creating real change that lasts.
That's why Compass Advisors Group recommends a coaching relationship of a minimum of 6 months, with the ideal being 12 to 18 months or more.
How much will coaching cost?
In most cases, you should be able to make more than enough in the growth of your company by working with a business coach to pay for the coaching. And, the results last for years after the coaching process has ended. It could be the greatest investment that you will ever make!
Consider this: It would cost you more to hire a receptionist to answer your phones for a year than it will cost you to hire a coach. Given the fact that several industry studies have demonstrated a ROI (return on investment) of 4 to 10 times, enlisting the help of a business coach could very well be the most lucrative investment you make! For busy executives, company cost savings, time savings, and higher productivity are all results that are possible, and for some businesses, these results are priceless!

I’m not sure I need a coach – what issues could exist to see if I can benefit from coaching?
Why is coaching so beneficial and necessary even if I am successful?
The truth is there is always a gap between where you are now and where you want to be, both professionally and personally. The larger the gap, the larger the need for coaching. Furthermore, most owners do not have clarity about their future, let alone clarity where they are right now, and they suffer from blind spots. An effective business or executive coaching process will help clients see and accept the truth of the situation, and your strengths, talents, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats in all facets of your business and your life.
I’m just a start-up business with not a lot of money, but I know I need help and want coaching. What do you recommend for someone like myself?
The Compass Business Academy and Mastermind programs are excellent ways for a new business to obtain the benefits of coaching and mentoring. These programs are offered in a group setting and the price-point is lower than that of 1-to-1 coaching. While we recommend that business owners get started with either our Bronze or Silver package for individual coaching in order to get the quickest and most effective results and improvements in their businesses, we realize that some businesses cannot afford this solution until a later point – and therefore group coaching programs fill in the void. Our desire for you is to allow the coaching process in a group format to help strengthen and grow your new business so you will be at a point where individual coaching makes sense and can take you to even higher levels! We also recommend looking at our workshops such as “Get Clients Now”™ and our free seminars to get answers and assistance with growing your business. Get on our e-newsletter list and you’ll be kept informed!
How do I find out more and/or get started?
Contact us by phone, e-mail, on our website and one of our coaches will respond. There is never any obligation, and for those who are serious about learning more, please request to have a complementary exploratory meeting to see how we can help and the possibilities for results and solutions for your business. For those clients who engage Compass Advisors Group as their business coaching company, a set block of time will be arranged as your coaching slot, depending on the plan you choose.
