Jeremy Graham-Clare, who runs ActionCOACH St Albans, is giving away seven complimentary sessions each month to local businesses in need of guidance.
The franchisee is keen to help local entrepreneurs and small companies find their feet again, after an incredibly challenging first half of the year. Speaking to The Herts Advertiser, Jeremy outlined what business coaching can do.
“Business coaching supports and enables you to learn how to resolve challenges with skills and techniques which will last you a lifetime. Services range from 1-to-1 support sessions for individuals, through to group business education programs.”
He revealed that any business owner could benefit from a coaching session, as they are ideal whether you’re looking to position your company as a market leader, need help improving its fortunes or want to diversify your product offering. Jeremy explained why it can be so difficult when you’re growing a business that you’ve set up.
“It’s an all too familiar a feeling to be isolated or lonely when starting and growing a business. No-one completely understands your situation. A business coach offers shoulder to shoulder support but it’s often much more than that. Just like in sport, a good coach will excel you further and faster than you would on your own. Eric Schmidt the former CEO of Google put it simply: “without the help of a coach nobody can realise their full potential”.”
Jeremy outlined how a session with the business coaching franchise can offer an outsider’s perspective, hold you accountable, give honest feedback and praise and help you come up with your very own ActionPLAN for yourself and the business. He concluded by explaining the five principles all coaches at ActionCOACH St Albans believe can help any business grow. They are:
- Responsibility – taking action and never sitting back passively
- Education – making sure you have the right skill set for your ambitions
- Objectivity – having an outside voice of reason (your coach) can help you see the bigger picture clearly
“Our clients get the best results when they apply the tools, tactics, strategies and frameworks ActionCOACH have built up over the last 27 years. For example, on average in 2019 ActionCOACH St Albans clients achieved 54% increase in profit.”
