High performance professional practices are recognizing the value in working with a business coach to sort through whatever it is that’s holding them back from achieving their strategic and financial goals.
Business coaching enables professionals to successfully manoeuvre challenges that relate to the evolution of their firm, changing business environment or interpersonal conflict. While it’s relatively new to professional practice, it’s growing quickly.
High performance practices are recognizing the value in working with a business coach to sort through whatever it is that’s holding them back from achieving their strategic and financial goals.
We’ve been coaching the principals, partners and managers at Canadian small to mid-sized professional practices since 2005. Here are some examples of how we’ve seen our clients benefit in terms of newfound abilities, not to mention the wider impact of these changes:
- Motivate others through effective leadership
- Maintain focus in the face of stressful distraction
- Improve efficiency by way of empowering others
- Align behaviours with the firm’s strategic and business goals
- Establish and follow through on priorities
- Resolve conflict in a productive, win-win fashion
- Market the firm in a manner that’s consistent with its identity
There are many routes to take your practice from point A to B. As business consultants, we can work with you to draw up strategic, business and marketing-plans and assist with the implementation. As teachers, we can develop and deliver workshops that instill the firm with basic management principles and help you to understand how they relate to your firm. All that is good. But, there will always be areas where you’ll be left to your own devices to make change happen. Even with the clearest of plans and workshops, at times this may prove to be a struggle. Because of its one-on-one nature, coaching facilitates the firm’s ability to overcome the obstacles that are experienced at the individual level. It can be the difference between staying on track with your plans and allowing them to collect dust.
Busy, successful professionals have taken to coaching because working with a business coach – skilled in the areas designated for development and experienced in the sensitivities of professional practice – is a faster and more effective way to achieve their goals. Coaching also minimizes any financial, competitive and staffing risks that may be encountered along the way, all while making the journey a whole lot more enjoyable for everyone involved.
