5 Business Coaching Tips for Newbies (2019)
When you start out on the long road to running a successful business, be it online or from your own home, you’ll come across challenges and personalities you’ll wish you could have avoided.
But after all, everyday’s a school day and there are always life lessons to be learned.
I thought I’d share with you some “coaching tips for newbies” things I wish I’d known when starting out….
Overcoming adversity, through tenacity.
Ploughing through adversity is one of the very best personal development experiences I’ve had. I always used to put my ‘never give up’ attitude to me just being pig-headed. But no, it turns out it’s a very good personal skill to have, I only discovered later that what I thought was being a bit stubborn – not letting go until something is either done or broken, is actually tenacity.
Everyone starting their own enterprise goes through some degree of hardship, the more you do and the more you don’t stop will build valuable personal and professional skills.
Tenacity, perseverance, adapting to and managing change, agility, resilience, humility and grit all help to equip you for success.
Take time to think – but don’t procrastinate
Thinking time, you need this, especially in the early days/weeks/months of starting your business. Go for a walk sometimes, just to clear your head before taking action can even help you see a different way of approaching a situation or a perceived blocker.
But be careful that you don’t let thinking turn into non-action.
There are many ways to procrastinate so be aware and conscious of what you are focussing on and what your end-game is.
We are all in the values business.
There’s a saying, people don’t care what you know (or offer) until they know how much you care. Taking a look at your business and knowing what it offers is just one side.
Try to think of your business from that of your ideal customer. Look at what he/she wants to receive, how they feel when their desires are met, conversely – when they aren’t. What value do your customers place on the different channels or services that you offer?
Find and nurture your best talent.
I don’t mean talent in a team / network way, although that is important as you grow. No, I mean your personal talent. Are you good at writing, do you prefer one-to-one meetings, telephone, maybe you enjoy being in front of a camera?
These are all talents, some lend themselves better to your enterprise than others. Some work better as a channel for you to find customers.
Find your talent and build on it.
The final tip I can give for now is
finding a small group of good people who can help you build your team.
These can be assistants, part-time help, friends or mentors. People you know, some you may have to pay, others will volunteer their time and skills for you – depending on your relationship.
Pick people who want you to succeed, keep away from negative people and doomsayers. Build a team of positive influence and your business will almost certainly succeed.
