Private Vs Group Coaching - What's right for you
Hiring a coach to support you with your business is absolutely transformative, but a common question that comes up is - private or group coaching?
I take the difficulty out of the decision by taking you through the differences of each to help clarify the best option for your personality, energy and business.
We also take a look at the signs that you might be ready for a business coach. My specialty is helping when you’re coming out of the start up stage and hitting that messy middle. You know you’re there if you’re feeling that you know where you want to be, but are unsure how to get there and are experiencing inefficiencies ie. doing #allthethings.
These are all signs you and your business would really benefit from coaching. My job as a coach is to help you get past that ‘busy work’ and work out a clear plan and strategy to get you to those big dreams you have.
Next we deep dive into the differences between private and group coaching. My private coaching options are high touch and immersive - our conversations are focused 100% on you and how we can take your business to the next level. I take you through the reasons this might be the best option for you.
Group coaching on the other hand can be a rich and rewarding experience. You get insights and perspectives on other people’s approaches and business and a community of like-minded people. My group coaching is built around a proven leadership methodology that not only equips you with the knowledge of what to do, but keeps you on track and supported as you take action.
Boss, after listening to this episode I’m confident you’ll be clear on whether private versus group coaching is for you. If group coaching is more your style, my Run Your Business Like A Boss Academy doors are opening next week for Q3. Join the waitlist for an exclusive price and the first opportunity to join the final cohort for 2022!
If you’d prefer a more immersive and tailored experience then choose from either the Business Accelerator Program or Business Strategy Day. In these we work together to navigate your next steps and scale your business, so you can create a business that works for you and your lifestyle.
Either way, I can’t wait to chat with you, to work out how we can take your business to the next level!
Topics We Covered:
[1:15]: Private vs. group coaching containers - I believe there’s no right answer but ultimately it comes down to your energy style and where you are in your business.
[2:10]: How do you know you’re ready to hire a business coach? It depends on the coach - I work with business owners that are coming out of the start up stage and hitting that messy middle.
[2:47]: Signs that you’re ready - Sign #1 - you know where you want to be but you’re unsure how to get there. My role is to untangle your ideas and formulate them into a goal and plan.
[3:13]: Sign #2 - you’re tired of inefficiencies. You realise you can’t do #allthethings once you have multiple clients.
[3:42]: Sign #3 - your business isn’t where you want it to be. You have big dreams for what you want your business to look like, but instead you’re feeling stressed out and reactive!
[4:11]: Sign #4 - you’re ready to elevate yourself in your business. You’re ready to step into the role of Boss and away from doing every single thing.
[4:45]: Sign #5 - you want a strategy. Following momentum and intuition should not be disregarded, however as you get busier you need strategy and intention to move your business into the direction of your big vision.
[5:23]: Sign #6 - you want to go to the next level but you have self-doubt. Having someone hold space for you is so important as you do bolder, bigger things.
[6:00]: Sign #7 - you need someone to hold you accountable. It’s so easy to get caught up in what’s urgent, not what’s important. Coaches help you get beyond the ‘busywork’.
[6:54]: I offer two private coaching containers. 1) Business Accelerator Coaching Program - six month, high touch, one-on-one. 2) Business Strategy Day - a full day with me to get perspective on your business.
[7:39]: The benefits of private coaching - every conversation is 100% about you and tailored to your needs. Private coaching is transformative.
[8:51]: My group coaching program Run Your Business Like a Boss is designed around common areas business owners want to work on.
[10:42]: The benefits of a group coaching program are numerous. Hearing what others go through and sharing experience provides solutions and perspectives to apply to your business.
[11:17]: I use a leadership tool called train, implement, coach. It provides time for you to do things in your time, but also come back together for live support.
[11:53]: You will enjoy group coaching if you enjoy the team aspect and you want a more structured, hybrid model. You are the expert of your life and your business. My role is to show you were to look, so that you are doing the deep thinking.
[12:48]: Everyone that comes into a group coaching session has a different business and lens, which is very much considered in my masterclass and tools.
[13:20]: Personality, your business and available time will also contribute to whether private or group coaching is best for you.
[14:32] The Run Your Business Like a Boss Academy doors are opening! I would love to invite you to be part of Cohort 2, which will set you up for success in 2023.
[15:48]: I have a little bit of availability for private coaching clients, so if you'd prefer private coaching I’d love to hear from you.
[16:18] Coaching is an incredible experience - hiring a coach you trust is paramount.
