Almost everyone needs a Business Coach. Not just any Business Coach, but an experienced Business Coach in their line of work who has been successful in the industry they are coaching in.
John Wooden, the famous coach, often said, “Never mistake activity for achievement”. How many of us have been guilty of that? I confess that we have.
Let’s face it, most of us are so busy in the trenches we don’t get to see the whole battle field. Our industry is changing…….fast. We have to keep pace. To make it even harder, the goal lines keep getting changed on us, by our customers, insurance companies, and many others.
One way to deal with the constant evolution of the business is to have goals, but our experience shows us that most people in the disaster restoration business don’t.
Good question. A great start to getting the answer is in a quote I heard Zig Ziglar say many years ago, “A goal properly set is half reached”.
Working with a Your Restoration Coach would be a great way to start down the right path of setting and reaching all those goals you have.
OK, your right. I did just tell you this was not going to be a long story, so let’s get to the point. Here are a few quotes from successful business leaders regarding some of their thoughts on what a Business Coach is and why you may want to consider getting one for yourself.
Don’t just glance these over. These quotes are from some very smart people. Smarter than most of us, well, me for sure.
“I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their full potential.”
– Bob Nardelli, CEO, Home Depot
“Recent studies show business coaching and executive coaching to be the most effective means for achieving sustainable growth, change and development in the individual, group and organization.”
– HR Monthly
“A major benefit of coaching is having someone who helps you see your strengths and weaknesses and uses them to accomplish your goals.”
– Minneapolis Star-Tribune
“Using [coaching] instead of sending executives and managers to seminars two or three times a year can be more beneficial to ongoing career development, not to mention less expensive…”
– PC Week
“Coaching takes a holistic view of the individual: work, corporate values, personal needs and career development are made to work in synergy, not against one another.”
– British Journal of Administrative Management
“If you want to build your business and at the same time have a rewarding personal life, you call a coach.”
– Denver Post
“A study featured in Public Personnel Management Journal reports that managers (31) that underwent a managerial training program showed an increased productivity of 22.4%. However, a second group was provided coaching following the training process and their productivity increased by 88%. Research does demonstrate that one-on-one executive coaching is of value.”
– F. Turner, Ph.D.
“Across corporate America, coaching sessions at many companies have become as routine for executives as budget forecasts and quota meetings.”
– Investors Business Daily
“I never cease to be amazed at the power of the coaching process to draw out the skills or talent that was previously hidden within an individual, and which invariably finds a way to solve a problem previously thought unsolvable.”
– John Russell, Managing Director, Harley-Davidson Europe Ltd.
