One of the most valuable things about The Diploma in Small Business Coaching is the knowledge gained from the trainers who each run their own small businesses. It can add real credibility to know that you are learning how to build your own small business from coaches who have already done it and very successfully too.
The 'you and your business’ live training day begins with a session on coaching to support business vision and purpose. Unless you as a coach can align your work with the business owner’s vision for success, you will continually be at odds and undermining the joint efforts you could be making. Goal setting in line with business vision and purpose is a key aim here.
You will go on to consider the role of the business owner’s personal brand and values in contributing to success. What does s/he as an individual stand for? What does that say about the business that could be of benefit or dis-benefit to it?
A key issue for many business owners is that of work/life balance. Your clients are often highly motivated individuals, prepared to work very hard for success, but these hard working clients are sometimes the ones with issues to resolve around establishing a balance between home, work and family. Some small business owners need help in seeing that their own understanding of a healthy workload might not be the same as that of their workforce. Crucially, small business owners may need help in recognising and being coached through periods of burnout, when all that work becomes just too much.
Finally the hot topic of time management is considered. Frequently a massive issue for business owners, you will learn to coach effective responses to pressing time demands. Covey’s Important and urgent diagnostic will help you to guide your client towards the most effective use of time.
