THE TOP BUSINESS COACHES

The Top Business Coaches / 6th December 2021

The corporate world is fiercely competitive. The concept of business has evolved dramatically over the years. Running a business in the 21st century is difficult and often frustrating. 

Business owners must stay updated about industry trends in their respective niches to stay in the competition. Running a business may be difficult since owners must continually acquire new strategies and unique ideas in order to develop and make more profit.  

The Top Business Coaches

A business coach helps to tackle the ‘what’s next’ question that haunts entrepreneurs.

It comes as no surprise that company owners frequently recruit business coaches to make recommendations for improving business strategies and marketing.  

We talked with 12 business coaches, each with their own tailored style of systematically outlining short and long-term goals for helping entrepreneurs, and asked them what’s unique about their coaching and what has contributed towards their immense success.

Read on to discover what they have to say.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

I believe that until an entrepreneur is happy, emotionally and physically healthy, and fully confident, their life and business will not meet their desires and expectations. Therefore, I have developed an integrative approach to coaching that combines Mindset Mastery and Strategic Business Development. With energy psychology tools such as the Emotional Freedom Techniques (aka EFT tapping), neuro linguistic programming (NLP), and visualization, entrepreneurs gain the confidence to succeed.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

My awareness that success and happiness do not hinge entirely on ideas, strategy, and experience. I have learned from my own life experiences, and those of countless clients, that the most powerful tool we possess is our mind. Thought management and emotional intelligence are key traits in respected leaders, so these are the foundation of my life and message as an entrepreneur’s coach. Throughout their coaching experience entrepreneurs step into their unfiltered leadership abilities to grow their businesses without barriers and limitations.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

We coach on mindset, habits, leadership development, and the multitude of tactical decisions entrepreneurs face. We set ourselves apart by creating a full service digital marketing agency for our clients and partnering with expert consultants on systems, processes and measuring KPI’s. So often we coached a client on their next steps, and because they didn’t have the time, skills, or team nothing would get done. The client didn’t get the full result of the coaching. We saw this as a problem and took responsibility to fix it. Now, we can coach a client on their next steps to grow their business, and if necessary, be their partner in making it happen.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

The single most important thing that has contributed to my success as a coach is my Win Happy approach. When we come to life from a happier place we are more successful – naturally. This approach is what helped me create my daily planner, Best Planner Ever. When I needed a tool to process negative emotion (instead of burying it) I developed the Best Journal Ever. It’s what motivated me to create our life coaching platform Goal Achievers and how I show up for my clients every day. We all face tough things. Showing up in our highest emotional states only makes us better at handling those things. I embrace this in my own life and I know my clients feel it when I show up for them.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

I often share the burnout experience that landed me pushing through businesses meetings with beta-blockers and ultimately collapsing in hospital.  I subsequently fired myself from corporate life in 2015.  With a calling to share his thoughts on culture and leadership, I speak passionately about the need for leaders to protect their teams from workplace stress.  “People don’t leave a good position, they leave a bad manager.  A red felt pool table and a pinball machine does not tick the culture box”. This love of culture and leadership led me to find my leadership support company Carpeway.

The Top Business Coaches

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

I believe that entrepreneurs are the experts of their business—they just have to trust their own intuition instead of looking externally for answers. That is why I use my coach training (Whole Person Certified Coach®, ICF ACC) to help them choose the best marketing strategies for them, based on their personality and strengths. When business owners enjoy marketing and do things that align with their abilities, they have the best chances for success. I also help them develop their mindset as I believe you need both strong beliefs and a solid strategy to get results.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

I’ve learned to listen to my own advice around choosing marketing strategies that feel aligned to you. I’ve noticed that it’s so easy to jump from one strategy to the next and get caught up in “shiny object syndrome,” but staying laser-focused on just one or two channels is what makes business owners succeed in the long run. My coach training and extensive marketing background have allowed me to guide my clients in coming up with their own customized strategies that feel right for them and their business.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

The majority of my clients have 12 to 96 employees, which gives them a specific challenge: they are large enough to have proven their business model and built a team, but the owners are still ultimately responsible for all 28 areas of their business.

They don’t have the time or budget to hire 28 different specialists. They need one person, a “private enterprise deep generalist” who can show them how all those areas are connected and which focus will deliver them the greatest immediate results.

Business owners have big, broad dreams; deep generalists like me help turn those into reality.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

I’ve learned to listen to my own advice around choosing marketing strategies that feel aligned to you. I’ve noticed that it’s so easy to jump from one strat

The first question a business owner ought to ask any coach: “Who is your coach?”

The unwillingness of many coaches to invest in their own coaching support is reflected in the commercial challenges they face. I credit my success to my mentors and coaches, from the first training I did in 2006-07 through to the ongoing investment I make for my team today.

We cannot put our hand on our heart and tell clients that investing in coaching will change their lives, unless we are also prepared to put our hand in our pocket and invest in coaching for ourselves.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

The foundational belief that has most contributed to my coaching success is my belief in and my utilization of The Law of Attraction. Whatever we believe about ourselves, our abilities, faults, talents, and desires is absolutely true in our minds. However, some of our beliefs are false. My strength is to isolate those false beliefs and reprogram your thinking through support, accountability, with the help of your innate wisdom. What we think about and give energy to expands in our lives. I’ll guide you to think about and give energy to your imagination, strengths, and visions.

He gets to their level of thinking and helps guide them through the challenges of business uncertainties, both internal and external.
