When you’re thinking of working with a business coach, there are some essential topics that you’ll want to cover to get the most out of the experience both personally and for your business. Here are some of those important topics:

Goal Setting

Most people work best when they are working towards a goal. It provides a concrete endpoint and success can be measured. Without goals, we are directionless and therefore, it’s a good starting point to discuss with your coach so you can gain the maximum benefit from your investment.

Work/Life Balance

As much as you want your business to succeed, it must not be at the expense of your personal life. If you find you no longer have time for family, hobbies or just relaxing then your work will also suffer. Getting the balance just right is essential as when one side is out of kilter, it will impact the other side too.

Team Building

You can’t be a leader without a motivated team. Your staff need to feel that they have a say and a stake in the business if they are to remain happy and enthusiastic. It’s easy to think you are always right but take time to listen if you want to build a dedicated and cooperative workforce.

Dealing With Conflict

Conflict is inevitable whenever people collaborate and knowing how to effectively deal with conflict when it arises is an essential part of business. Conflict is often the result of a miscommunication or misunderstanding, so learning how to deal with these situations tactfully and moving forward with a positive mindset is crucial.


Are you a control freak? Do you find it difficult to pass responsibility to others? It can be hard to let go of your ‘baby’ but there are times when you need to take a break, go on holiday or just get some rest. A coach can help you to develop a strategy in order to make delegation feel more natural for you.

Self-Imposed Barriers

Quite often we can be our own worst enemy, convincing ourselves that we are not smart enough or experienced enough to be successful. A coach can work on your confidence and guide you through positive self-talk exercises, for example.
