4 Signs Your Organisation Needs Team Business Coaching

To get your business off the ground, all you need is a fine idea, a few good people around you, and enough money to keep you going until you can generate enough income yourselves. However, if you really want to make sure that your business thrives, you need to ensure you have all of the right pieces in the right places.

And sometimes, that single missing piece is a business coach. Both Apple and Google owe much of their trillion-dollar valuations to their shared business coach, Bill Campbell, who’s been able to help them drive growth and profitability. Today, we’ll look at the importance of having the right coach for your organisation and signs you might need team business coaching. 

Benefits of Business Coaching

Before we move any further, let’s establish a couple of things. First off, a business coach isn’t a mentor. While both of them help you set and achieve your goals, a business coach is far more hands-on in their approach.

A business coach is a trained professional, often certified, who specialise in helping businesses establish strategic plans, manage teams more effectively and increase efficiency.

At the same time, a coach can also identify problem areas, develop solutions and help create an environment where everyone feels valued and motivated.

According to a recent study of Fortune 1000 companies that have used business coaching services, the biggest benefits include:

  • Increased productivity (by 53%)
  • Better customer service levels (by 39%)
  • Increased senior executive retention (by 32%)

Individual vs. Team Coaching

Next, we need to differentiate between individual and team coaching. Individualised coaching is the optimal approach for business owners who are looking to delve deep into the issues which affect their team or company.

Team coaching, however, tends to be more tailored to the needs of larger companies with a wide range of skill levels and needs. It’s the perfect approach for business owners who are looking to build a strong, unified team that can work together to drive success.

If that sounds like you and your team, then team coaching is something to look into.

4 Signs You Need Team Business Coaching

There’s room for improvement in every company. You don’t have to look far to notice that something isn’t quite right. So how do you exactly know that your business could use some coaching services? Read along to discover the tell-tale signs.

1. Strategy Doesn’t Match Goals

Having trouble achieving goals? Not sure your teammates are even aware of the company’s mission and vision? Then, it may be the time to have a coach come in and do some work.

Your strategy always needs to be in line with your goals. With the help of a coach, you’ll be able to identify any discrepancies between the two and find ways to bridge the gap. And speaking of gaps…

2. Knowledge Gaps

Not everyone is a master of every single aspect of running a business. There are times when we all need help. If you or your team feel like there are knowledge gaps that can’t be filled by your team members alone, then it’s time to look for a coach who can help.

Now, business coaches aren’t just there to help you plug the knowledge gaps. They also bring a fresh perspective that can be used to rethink and restructure your current workflows and strategies.

3. Lack of Clear Priorities

Having too much on your plate can be overwhelming, especially if you don’t know where to start. But every member of your team needs to work like a well-oiled machine if you want to reach your goals.

A coach can come in, assess the situation, and help your team member recognise what needs to be done first. With their guidance, everyone will be able to work together more effectively and efficiently.

4. Low Productivity

Unrealistic workloads and a lack of motivation can lead to low productivity levels. But with the help of an experienced coach, you can set achievable goals, create a realistic timeframe and motivate your team members to do the best work of their lives.
