I am…a small business coach. The tag line for my bookkeeping business is: Manager, Coach and Partner for Small Business. I appreciate coaching in my life and love supporting my clients in this way as well.
Quotes on coaching:
•”A good coach will make his players see what they can be rather than what they are.” – Ara Parasheghian
•”I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities.” – Bob Nardelli, former CEO, Home Depot
•”I never cease to be amazed at the power of the coaching process to draw out the skills or talent that was previously hidden within an individual, and which invariably finds a way to solve a problem previously thought unsolvable.” – John Russell, Managing Director, Harley-Davidson Europe Ltd.
A coach can play any number of roles –mentor, consultant, motivator, but one thing she [or he] is not is a therapist. Coaching deals with the “how”: how you can move on from where you are and make change. It’s action-oriented, and concerned with the present and future, not the past. – Shape Magazine
