So how do you choose an Advisor who is right for you?
First and foremost, you need to look for a coach that has walked the walk and preferably across a variety of industries. Their ability to be able to coach you and keep you accountable.
What is their story? Find a coach that offers a free first consultation to ascertain amongst all other facts if you’re a good fit for each other. Does the coach have success stories? Are they someone with whom you can talk to honestly and know they will give you a frank response? After all this is your business you want to grow.
The coach as well as being knowledgeable must have the ability to also take the hard-line approach if that’s what’s required to keep you on track. Does the coach keep themselves current with new business practices? Lastly does your coach exude a passion for teaching/coaching you and celebrating in your success. A lot can be gained from your first free consultation.
Research the coach and meet with them. That first meeting can tell you a lot about how you will work together. What their knowledge is of your industry. Can they add the value you are seeking?
Do your personalities gel, this is important. Treat it like a first date, would you want to see this person again. Are they transparent? Will they keep you accountable? Are you on the same page?
Ask all the questions you need to. A good coach will answer and not become defensive. They understand it is as important for you as for them that there’s a mutual respect and alignment.
