  • What are the differences between Business Coaching and Business Consulting?
    Consulting is typically with the entire organization and often includes a higher investment in time, transparency, and cost, usually accompanied by a contract for a specified number of months or years. Business Coaching is typically between John and the Business Owner(s) or Key Leader(s), and requires a few hours a week, no financial transparency, and a lower financial investment, with no long-term contract.
  • What is the difference between Business Coaching and Business Mentoring?
    John has business mentors in his life. These professionals offer their time and expertise as needed at no cost, giving back to others in honor of the mentors they have learned from in their lives. Business Coaches are professionals who receive payment to achieve specific, measurable goals in the Client’s professional endeavors.
  • What will Business Coaching require of me alongside time and financial commitments?
    The last benefit John’s Business Coaching provides is the opportunity to Execute on Next Best Steps to reach his clients’ long-term goals. This requires his clients to do the work necessary to fully achieve the mutually-agreed-upon Next Best Step prior to the next Coaching session.
  • What is your Business Coaching process?
    Once our Discovery Session is complete, and both parties agree to work together, the weekly cohort session (small group capped at 10 attendees) is scheduled virtually and paid in advance, 4 sessions total. Each session begins with celebrating wins, followed by a recap of the previous session’s Next Best Steps. Progress towards completing these Steps is reviewed to determine if further action is needed or if the Step is fully completed. The bulk of the weekly session is dedicated to discussing what is currently happening in the clients’ lives along with ideas on how to best navigate these events. The session concludes with Next Best Steps to achieve prior to next week’s session.
  • What’s the biggest myth about Business Coaching?
    Business Coaching, as with coaching of all kinds, does not include automatic results. The client must be even more dedicated to accomplishing the mutually-agreed-upon Next Best Steps than the Coach.
  • If I hire a Business Coaching, will it signal to others that I am weak or incompetent?
    World-class athletes have a Coach and achieve far greater results than if they worked alone. Studies show results improve by 20-30% when a team is engaged with a Coach they trust and respect.
  • How do you help clients overcome challenges?
    John and the client identify the challenges, explore root causes, discuss potential solutions, and agree upon Next Best Steps. It’s always a team effort, with encouraging Accountability in place to achieve the desired outcome.
  • Can you describe a client after they’ve worked with you?
    One of my clients said that they accomplished more in 3 sessions with John than they had achieved on their own in 2 years. Self-motivated clients who value Coaching and put in the work get results and see measurable progress towards achieving their Big Hairy Audacious Goals (BHAG’s).
