Welcome to our services page for business coaching.  Our business coaching program is for CEO’s and executives of small to mid-sized businesses that are facing significant challenges

Who Needs a Business Coach?

Eric Schmidt says everybody does.  He shared in the July 6, 2009, issue of Fortune Magazine that the best piece of advice he ever got was to hire a coach.  Frankly, if the chairman and CEO of Google needs a coach, then you need one, too. Watch 60 seconds of Eric's interview on CNN.com.

Are You Typical?

Typically, you’re facing issues like needing to increase your sales or profits.  Or you need to attract new customers, clients, or patients, or maybe you’re having trouble just hanging on to the ones you have now.

Are you forever putting out “fires” and really want to get your operation running smoothly? Do you feel overwhelmed with everything you have to do just to meet the day-to-day demands of your business and with no time to plan for the future?

Do you have staffing issues that are driving you nuts, like high employee turnover or poor retention of good performers?

Do you want a sounding board to listen to you, advise you, and give you a straight answer without a sales pitch?  Maybe you’re approaching burnout with the load you’re carrying and don't want to go there.

Or maybe you are a recently promoted executive or manager and want help to ensure you "get it right the first time" to be successful in your new position.

Our phone-based coaching program might be what you’re looking for.  It’s a cost-effective way to get regularly scheduled coaching designed to produce measurable results.

What Should You Look For in a Business Coach?

Good business coaches give a 3rd party look at an issue, and how you're handling it, they discuss alternative approaches or options with you that may be more effective, and they encourage you to change habits or take risks that you wouldn't be prepared to do on your own.  They are a sounding board; they become a trustworthy confidant who has your best interest at heart. Finally, a good business coach will help you break through to achieve what you couldn't on your own .

What Sets Our Business Coaching Program Apart?

There are lots of canned, franchised, and free government programs offering business coaching. What sets the Business Growth Accelerators program apart is our focus on YOU and on finding solutions to the issues that you bring to the table.

You set the agenda! We listen to understand your challenges, work with you to prioritize your work list, help you set milestones to achieve results, and use professional accountability to ensure your milestones are accomplished and projects get done.

What Does Our Business Coaching Program Provide?

Our programs start at $500 per month and include:

  • Weekly, regularly scheduled, full hour (not 45 minutes) phone consultations— guaranteed!
  • An action plan designed around your agenda to address the challenges you're facing.
  • Action items following each meeting designed to help you make measurable progress toward the goals you set.
  • A hard copy (not an e-book) of Dramatic Business Growth in the Face of Fierce Competition, one of Dan's highly rated titles on Amazon.com, at no extra charge.
  • Email support between regularly scheduled meetings.
and are designed for you to receive the attention you need to rapidly make progress in addressing the challenges you face.

Working With Great Clients

Keep in mind that we only work with great clients. Great clients are willing to talk frankly about the issues they’re facing and discuss them in depth.  Great clients are willing to listen as we explore the possible causes and potential solutions for your business challenges.  And finally, great clients are ready to act on the improvement measures we discuss and agree on, because you want results, right?  And you won’t get those results if you stay in the same performance rut that you’re trying to get out of.

Your Next Step

If you’re a great client, your next step is to get more information. So, Contact us to schedule some time with us. Do it today. You’ll be glad you did and we’ll look forward to hearing from you!
