Why Hire a Business Coach?

"I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities."

Bob Nardelli
CEO, Home Depot

Anyone can tee up a ball, give it their best swing and call themselves a golfer. Those who seek to dramatically improve their game with consistent results hire a golf pro. This “coach” then identifies swing errors and helps develop short- and long-term strategies for playing at a higher level.


A qualified business coach provides you with similar benefits.

You see, many entrepreneurs can hit a certain level in their business through hard work, persistence and passion. Few, however, achieve $1M in revenue and even fewer go beyond 7-figures without the assistance of a business coach or mentor.

Even growing companies face challenges. For example, a study by the Kauffman Foundation found that 66% of companies listed on the Inc 5000 fastest-growing companies list were either disadvantageously sold, went out of business or shrunk in size within 5-8 years.

High-performing business owners and CEOs who work with a qualified business coach receive customized strategies so they avoid frustrations such as:

  • No predictability in leads or sales
  • A business too dependent on the owner or a few key employees
  • Having too many opportunities and not sure what to focus on next
  • Overly reliant on word-of-mouth and referrals
  • No scalable sales or marketing strategy
  • Competing on price
  • Losing business to inferior competitors
  • Not growing fast enough

Even great CEOs, such as Steve Jobs (Apple), Eric Schmidt (Google) and Bill Gates (Microsoft), as well as many small businesses on the Inc 5000 fastest-growing companies list, credit a business coach for upgrading their decision-making skills.

"Everyone needs a coach."

Bill Gates
CEO, Microsoft

High-performing entrepreneurs and CEOs understand that getting a business coach is NOT a sign of weakness or failure, but rather a signal of strength. 

Across the board, the investment in business coaching demonstrates an ROI.

  • Companies, including Booz Allen Hamilton, receive a 790% average return on coaching (source: MatrixGlobal LLC)
  • When training is combined with coaching, productivity goes up by 86% compared to 22% with training alone (source: Personnel Management Association).
  • Investment in coaching provides an almost 600% ROI (source: Manchester, Inc.)

With over 1.3 billion search results for “how to grow a business,” finding a qualified business coach who can customize a solution that gives you better insights, decisions and results is key.

When you work with an experienced, high-level business coach, they:

  • Provide solutions to overcome challenges (using a combination of experience and objectivity).
  • Identify overlooked opportunities (only revealed with a fresh, outside view of the business).
  • Generate actionable strategies for achieving your professional goals (based on research, experience and proof).
  • Optimize your efforts with on-going feedback (for continual, measured improvement month-after-month).
  • Eliminate the guesswork (so you know the most important activity you need to focus on and which ones you must eliminate from your business).
