When you look for a lawyer, accountant, or doctor, what is your first step? Do you ask friends or family? Do you do a Google search? How do you know if they are experts in the issues or attention you need? If you need an attorney to prepare business documents for your company, you surely don’t want to meet with a patent lawyer.
Similarly, you don’t need a forensic accountant if you have a tax issue. If you are looking for a podiatrist, a reference to a pediatrician is meaningless. The same holds true for business coaches. Doctors, lawyers, and business coaches have something in common – they all have a unique area of expertise and a personal style of delivering their services.
That’s where many people are when they consider hiring a coach. They are at a place in their life where they need some direction and a professional to help them see clearly, but what kind of coach can best help?
You can find a coach for just about everything from life coaches to business coaches, executive coaching and leadership coaching, marketing coaches, and operations coaches. But how do you know what you need and who to hire?
I’d love to tell everyone to hire me, but, newsflash, I’m not everyone’s cup of tea!
