What is it that your business is trying to accomplish? What purpose does it serve? When a decision needs to be made, what guides the answer? Is everyone in your organization striving for the same thing? If you struggled to answer any of these questions, it may be time for a business coach. A business coach works with owners and leaders of an organization to clearly identify an organization’s mission and vision, define its core values and culture, provide the guiding principles for which it operates, and helps communicate that plan to everyone involved. For many small businesses we begin with a simple plan. We make every decision on our own based on what we feel is the right thing to do. That works for a while, but what happens when you bring other employees into the mix? Will their decision-making mimic yours? Do they know exactly what it is you want? Do your employees know what your goals are? If you truly want to have an impactful and sustainable business, you must have a clear picture of what that looks like.
