I designed this guide to help entrepreneur's navigate the opaque world of coaching. I also created this guide to help them assess and find an amazing coach who is a strong match. Fit is incredibly important because it has a direct impact on the strength of the alliance and quality of outcomes.
This guide is broken up into a number of sections. First, I provide an overview on what coaching actually is. I then share insights into the coaches toolbox. Said another way, the experiences, skills and certifications that a coach may have. From there, we'll dive into how you can run a process and determine fit. I then highlight coaches and organizations that have been recommended by your peers. On our way to wrapping up, I share how you can think about pricing and ROI. Finally, I leave you with some resources if you want to go deeper into coaching.
Working with a coach is a big investment in time, money and energy. Both sides should feel charged to co-create a partnership, embark on a life-changing journey and grow together over time. That's why going into the process armed with guidance and information is so critical. Good luck!
