Small Business Owners, Coaches and Consultants are often great at what they do, but find it very challenging to set aside the time to learn or implement systems that effectively build their businesses. Time, energy and money are our most limiting resources and where to connect and learn within a budget are often the challenges that go unanswered.
Business coaching in small groups is a true accelerator of the insights and learning process of the coachee and the group as a whole. When you work with others, you have the opportunity to be constantly sharing ideas and gaining valuable additional outside perspective. You will be amazed, sometimes even the simplest question can spark an informative and collaborative discussion giving you a treasure load of free insight, ideas, and possible solutions you might never have thought of on your own.
In the group, we are able to clarify, “What work has to be done and we address it!”.
The truth is that interactive learning and support are the keys to success.
Another benefit of Group Coaching is the opportunity to meet new people who truly learn about you and your business and therefore are more like to be able to refer you or use your services themselves!
Often, group coaching participants continue to coach each other as accountability partners as you take the skills you learn in the group and continue to maximize them on your own. There’s no doubt that when we work within a group we want to show up doing our best each session while we strive toward reaching our potential.
