What is business coaching?
It is the process of coaching business owners to better their businesses through mentorship, guidance, support, accountability and encouragement.
Who conducts business coaching?
Business coaches are responsible for the coaching. Business owners should seek the services of certified business coaches. The success of a business does not necessarily mean the company owner is a good coach. Business coaches have broad and deep business experience, and are fellow business owners who have invested and continue to invest their time, money, and energy to make their own various business ventures successful.
What is the role of a business coach?
It is to help owners of small- and medium/large-sized businesses with all aspects of business such as mindset, sales, marketing, management, team building – and more. Most importantly, just like a sport coach, a business coach makes you focus on the game.
Why would I need a business coach?
Every great performer whether an athlete, performer or businessperson is surrounded by coaches and advisors. And as the world of business moves faster and gets more competitive it's difficult to keep abreast of changes. Having a business coach is no longer a luxury it has become a necessity. It is possible to survive without a coach but it's difficult to thrive. Based on sales, marketing, and business management systems, your business revenues and profits will increase - often quite dramatically. You will also be coached to develop your business so that you, as the owner, can work less, relax more, and finally enjoy business ownership.
How will a coach help me?
Your coach can see the wood as well as the trees. He/she will listen; make you focus on the game; make you run more 'laps' than you feel like tackling; tell it to you like it is; give you ideas you hadn't thought about. At one tenth of the cost, your coach will be your marketing manager, sales director, training coordinator, partner, confidant, mentor – and your best friend. Your coach will help you make your dreams come true. If you do the work!

Who could I approach for referrals?
Derryn Fourie, of Midmar Crushers attends coaching session every week and is a firm fan of business coaching: "I have seen a steady growth in my business over the past three years and I would never have reached the targets accomplished on my own."
Clive and Linda Foss of Riverside Trading (Nottingham Road Hotel and Gowrie Country Club) attend sessions on alternate weeks and their respective businesses have developed beyond expectations: "Our initial scepticism has turned to complete faith in business coaching."
July Mweli of Heathcliff Farming: "I wouldn't be here where I stand today had my employee not sent me to a business coach. I hold out my hand in gratitude."
Mark Heinrich of Jaxx Restaurant: "I didn't think I needed a coach because my established restaurant in Tweni was doing well. When Jaxx opened in The Quarry Centre in Hilton I noticed we were next door to ActionCOACH. I conducted research, gave it a try and, with the help of coaching we have put tried-and-tested systems in place and we have moved forward more rapidly than ever anticipated. We've seen a healthy profit growth and the attitude of our staff tell a positive story."
Trevor Rawlins of Commercial Fleet Claims Adjusters has enjoyed similar success in his business: "It's a fact, business coaching works. I have seen a considerable growth in my annual profit."

What can I expect to pay for a business coach?
This is for you to discuss with the coach during your complimentary, obligation-free business assessment, hour-and-a-half feedback session. The company offers a selection of books; one-to-one coaching; ActionCLUB: a 10/12-month group coaching programme that has been structured to help delegates learn, implement, sustain and grow their businesses, revenues and profits – monthly meetings, and between-sessions webinars ensure an understanding of the previous session's content and successful implementation; GrowthCLUB: a full-day, quarterly, intensive and exclusive 90-day business-planning workshop with coaching and educational content, aiming to establishing an effective and executable strategy for your business - as with quarterly planning in large organisations, small- and medium-business owners are given the opportunity to participate in a business-building day with like-minded owners.
Are there any guarantees that business coaching will work for me?
The short answer in no! You must remember your coach is just that – you are the player and it's up to you to take the field. Your coach will push you, cajole you, help you, be there for you – and even do some things with you – but you have to do the work. Only you can be accountable for your success. A business coach guarantees to give you the best service possible – and remember your success is your coach's success. We do offer a 17 week 7 point guarantee in certain circumstances.
