Many people have asked me whether it's coaching for business is just another fad of the journals of "management." Will it help to actually improve performance or is a silly business? Who depends on it to work or not? The truth is that it depends almost entirely on you. If you intend to make clear what treatment you've chosen well and your coach, then the benefits can be dramatic. However, if you can not find the right person and they do not clearly define your goals then it is another way to throw your money away. My personal experience is that it is better to have a coach "point" on a particular topic to start. It's much harder to find an expert you can trust general issues of any kind. Also the required confidence level is much higher. For example, my first personal trainer who is hired on the topic of online marketing.
I sought an expert with proven results and hired him to help me in this world who know very little. I learned of the tactics, especially technical and strategies are working. I can send queries when you want and maintain a very close contact. Besides offering opinions and check my progress, send me useful information and designed a personalized program of actions to my case. In your case, you may need a coach to financial issues or a new business plan.
Maybe you are looking for someone skilled in the production or marketing area. Make a reflection on the area of your less dominate business and focus your efforts on finding someone who can contribute in this particular area. I recommend a ratio of this type to enter the world of coaching. If they have a positive experience then you can start thinking about having a more general manager.
