Why Coaching for Small Businesses

Why Coaching for Small Businesses

Why Coaching? What do people coach on? How could it support me?

Here are some examples of coaching agendas / priorities:


  • I have an idea for a new business; I need to figure out if it is a good fit for me.
  • I need to create my business plan and need to think through it (SWOT, plan, etc.).
  • I want to have a clear mission and vision to be a base for making business decisions.
  • I want to understand my values so I can run my business in alignment with them.
  • I want to reduce my stress at work and need to figure out how.
  • I am in the middle of a big project and I could use a person to provide support/reflection.
  • I work by myself and need encouragement and a person to help see what I am not.
  • I have a problem that needs to be solved; I need to understand what is not obvious.
  • I need to make an important decision and want to brainstorm/tease out my best options.
  • I have a large goal and I want help to develop a strategy to reach that goal easily.
  • I want to build a skill set or part of my business and need focus/push to make it happen.
  • I want to articulate better who I am and what I do for networking, marketing, etc.
  • I need to explore new ways to expand how or ways to approach my business or goals.
