Business & Executive Coaching

What is Business Coaching?

Business Coaching is a process typically used by High Achieving Business Owners and Senior Management Teams of small to medium-sized businesses, as well as Senior Executives of large corporates and groups. Business Coaching is a powerful form of coaching used to help take a business from where it is currently, to where the Business Owner and Senior Management Team wants it to be, in line with the overall vision, mission, core values and strategy of the company. Mentoring and coaching is usually provided to these High Achievers because their companies consider them to be the key players in driving the business forward. When done well, Business Coaching can influence many aspects of the business including employee adaptability, productivity and retention from the top down which is a smart and sound investment.

How to Choose a Professional Business Coach

A Business Coach who works with High Achieving Business Owners, Senior Management Teams and Executives is also often referred to as an Executive Coach, Executive Life Coach, Senior Executive Coach, Corporate Coach, Corporate Executive Coach, Corporate Life Coach, Performance Coach, Success Coach, Career Coach and Business and Life Coach (or in reverse) Life and Business Coach. Don’t be confused though, essentially all these different fancy titles basically mean the same thing, the client is receiving coaching for success and performance enhancement both for themselves and their company. However, it is always advisable to check out the qualifications, credentials and experience of your Business Coach first, as unfortunately there are lots of Business Coaches out there who don’t have any formal training, qualifications, accreditations and professional memberships let alone experience.

Business Coaching Courses

There is no legal requirement in the Business Coaching Industry to have any professional training, qualifications, accreditations or professional memberships before being eligible to provide Business Coaching Courses, so it can be hard to know who you can trust. Coaching and Mentoring Courses can be extremely powerful when delivered in a professional way by authentic, professional Business Coaches who have reputable certifications, accreditations and experience. So it is essential that they tick off every element on ‘The Authentic Business Coach Checklist’ because it will provide you with the reassurance and peace of mind that you need that they are genuine Business Coaches delivering professional Business Coaching Courses, and that you will be investing your money well by signing up to work with them.

‘The Authentic Business Coach Checklist’

Basically with Business Coaching Courses and any sort of Coaching and Mentoring Courses, you are entering into a deeply personal engagement with your Business Coach, and to a certain degree buying into who they are and why they do what they do. So you must feel certain that you are in the right place for your mentoring and coaching to ensure you get the professional coaching you need and the best possible outcome. Obviously this goes beyond the checklist points already mentioned, as it is extremely important that you feel comfortable and at ease with the Business Coach you plan to work with because this therapeutic relationship plays a huge part in the results you achieve together too. Here at Claire Rich we are professionally trained, qualified and experienced so you can rest assured you are in safe hands. Let’s face it, you can’t have just anyone working with you on your mind, body and business, it is too important to risk and leave to chance!

So to recap, please do make sure you use our ‘Authentic Business Coach Checklist’ for peace of mind, and to be as sure as any of us ever can be in life that you are making a sound decision:

  • Professional Training
  • Qualifications and Certificates
  • Accreditations
  • Professional Memberships (at least one)
  • Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
  • Experience
  • Client Testimonials
  • Good Rapport with you

The True Role of a Business Coach

A Business Coach is essentially doing two roles and is therefore a Life and Business Coach regardless of their specific title because there really is no divide between personal and professional development – the two are intricately interlinked. Coaching for success could and should therefore be considered to be professional counselling and therapy because it covers both areas of the client’s life, and the goals set are connected to both the individual and the company they work for. However a lot of Business Coaches aren’t Experts of the Mind, they are simply using their personality, charm, charisma and own life experiences to coach you to success. So to be sure you are getting the High Performance Business Coaching you want and need, you must be smart and do your research. Otherwise you will be constantly reliant and tied in to working with your Business Coach for guidance, motivation, confidence boosting, accountability etc. because you aren’t actually addressing the root cause(s) of the limiting beliefs that are holding you back from being the best you can be so you can be 100% self-sufficient.

The Personal & Professional Development Plan with a Difference

Our ‘Richer Life Programme’ is designed to do just that. We use a combination of Clinical Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy and Life Coaching to help you identify and overcome barriers to personal and business growth and success. We want you to achieve your goals and leave us feeling empowered, confident and totally in control knowing you have found the way to a richer life. There will be no doubt in your mind that you have all the strengths, skills and resources within you to continue working on your Personal and Professional Development Plan, so you can get the results you seek in the long term.

Of course, you are welcome to come back and do ‘The Richer Life Programme’ again and as many times as you wish because High Achievers are constantly setting new goals and raising the bar for themselves, so they are out of their comfort zone more often than most. However, we will never work on the same goals because you will have mastered those and moved on to even bigger and better ones as you raise your game and take things to a whole new level. Invest in yourself and you will see you and your company develop and grow fast. High Performance Business Coaching is the soundest investment you and your Employer could ever make in your company, as you will continue to see the benefits permanently and ultimately these positive results benefit everyone from the top down.

Why You Need an Expert of the Mind for High Performance Business Coaching

This powerful form of High Performance Business Coaching could not possibly be so effective if it didn’t work on your mind because the subconscious mind is the control room of everything. So you see you really need to be working with an Expert of the Mind, like a Clinical Hypnotherapist who can help you get your subconscious and conscious mind working together so you can achieve your goals easily and work smarter not harder. This type of High Performance Business Coach will work with you as a guide to help you get from where you are to where you want to be in the fastest, most efficient way possible so you can maximise your performance, wellbeing and success and get lasting results.

The Benefits of High Performance Business Coaching with Claire Rich

Here at Claire Rich we believe that when you work on your mind, you will have a healthy mind, body and business. So we provide the best of both worlds, no we aren’t Business Coaches in the typical sense of the word because whilst we will obviously talk about your business and career during our sessions, you don’t necessarily come to us to work directly with you on your Business Plan, Sales and Marketing, Recruitment, Team Building, Sales Training etc. However, we can and do work on all of these things where applicable in a more powerful way, by helping you to identify and overcome your unique barriers to personal and business growth and success so you can maximise your performance, wellbeing and success.

Basically, we go one step further and help you work on the most important thing of all ‘your mind’ so you can actually get the necessary plan and methods in place that will allow you to achieve your goals easily so you can play and stay at the top of your game. That way you and your company can thrive and become a real leader in its field…so it’s win, win all round!

The Way Business Coaching Works at Claire Rich

Unlike other Business Coaches who offer guidance, support, accountability and encouragement we go one step further and ensure you have all the tools and confidence you need to take the necessary action to actually achieve your goals so you can fulfil your true potential. It is one thing working out or knowing what you need to do but if you don’t feel you have the resources or confidence within you to carry out your plan then you aren’t really any further on. It is like the saying “Knowledge is power.” When in reality, knowledge is only power if you use it and take the necessary action.

We all have all the strengths and resources within us to achieve anything we set our mind to, if we want to and are truly committed and motivated to achieving our goals (even if it doesn’t feel like it). Our ‘Richer Life Programme’ is designed to help you unleash the power within you so you can work out what is the best way forward. You can either decide you want us to activate the neural pathways in your brain to enhance your performance, wellbeing and success by learning new skills or do the relevant research to find people you can delegate these projects to. Remember finding and knowing your ‘sweet spot’ is the best way to work smarter not harder and be even more effective and productive. So whilst we believe that you can do anything you set your mind to, we will work with you to decide whether it is in your best interests to learn more, do more so you can achieve more or simply find an Expert who can do all of that for you so you can achieve your goals faster and with minimal stress. Leaving you free to do what you do best so you can become a true Expert in your field!
