Coaching involves a certified expert leading you through each step of the process until your goals are reached.  Coach Jason is a top-rated Business & Executive Coach that serves as a personal “Business Wingman” to business leaders.  He is right beside them the entire journey providing advice, expertise, materials, tools, resources, and whatever else is necessary to ensure leaders make the best decisions possible for success.

Consulting involves hiring a professional to provide services or support in accordance with a specific statement of work, timeline, budget, and set of deliverables.  Once the requirements are fulfilled, the contract is closed.

There are over 50 varieties of coaches in the marketplace (health, wellness, spiritual, life, career, business, financial, fitness, etc,).  The key is ensuring you find the right one for you.  It is highly recommended you perform due diligence in your search for a coach.  Verify they are reputable, qualified, certified, and experienced experts in their field.  You would not let just anyone perform brain surgery on you, would you?  Of course not.  Do not put your business/career at risk by not having the best coach possible.   Below are the primary coaching services provided by Coach Jason:    

 

Business Coaching is an engagement in which organizational leaders work “on the business” with a business expert/coach. In business coaching, the coach and the client work together on every aspect of the business (vision, purpose, clarity, strategy, priorities, goals, marketing, sales, HR, culture, finance, growth, scaling, profitability, leadership, performance, business processes, etc) until the desired results are achieved.

 

Executive/Leadership Coaching is where a coach works directly with a member of management (typically Mid-Level Managers, Directors, Vice Presidents, and C-Suite level leaders) on their personal/professional leadership development. This could involve rehabilitating leaders that are struggling, grooming leaders to the next level of responsibility, working with leaders on a specific effort, or simply providing advice on important decisions that need to be made.

 

Career Coaching is focused on the career progression of an individual. The coach helps determine where the client is in their career, their strengths and weaknesses, talents, passions, motivators, and constraints and provides a clear roadmap for the client to obtain the ideal role that allows them to live the life they dream of.  This typically involves transforming professionals that are stuck or have settled in their current position, want a career change, are tired of not being fulfilled, have been passed over for promotion, not maximizing their potential, want to fast-track promotion opportunities, or want to be an entrepreneur and open a business.     

Coaching is NOT therapy, counseling, psychology, theory, philosophy, an experiment, or any situation where clients expect work to be done for them.  Coaching IS about experts guiding, teaching, and directing activities required to achieve RESULTS.

Top reasons to work with a coach:

 

  • Expert/confidential advice
  • Greater clarity & accountability
  • Higher confidence
  • Customized solutions
  • Best business practices
  • Faster results
  • Minimized risk
  • Better decision making
  • Revenue growth
  • Increased profitability
  • Competitive advantage
  • Cost savings & efficiencies
  • Maximized performance
  • Superior customer service
  • More happiness & balance in life
  • Fulfilled career
  • Peace of mind
  • And much more …

There are numerous ways to validate candidates in your search.  Be selective.  Do not hire the cheapest coach.  Work with only the BEST … your business/career success is dependent on it!  Below are top recommended qualifiers:

 

  1. Research the coach. Review their website, blogs, social media channels, posts, reviews, and recommendations.
  2. Interview the coach. Ask for credentials, education, certifications, level of experience, and success stories.

  3. Verify systems, processes, and support. Ask the coach to describe what a typical coaching session would be like.  Do they have proven systems and resources or are they “winging it?”  Are they operating on their own or do they have a supporting structure that can provide an entire portfolio of value?  What is the quality of the coaching content … did they make it up themselves or is it based on industry best practices?

  4. Validate programs and guarantees. Do they offer “cookie cutter” solutions or custom programs to meet your needs?  Do they have any guarantees … no contracts, cancel at any time, money back if not satisfied, etc?

  5. Trust your gut.  Ask yourself, do I like, trust, and have confidence in this person?  Do I feel comfortable around them?  Do they inspire me?  Do I enjoy the experience of interacting with them?  If not, keep looking.

Most coaches in the market have a traditional corporate career, climbed the ladder to management, and decided to go into business for themselves with no coaching experience/training, or work for an established brand like: Action Coach, Vistage, Tony Robbins, John Maxwell, etc.  Most have never been an entrepreneur, never owned a business, are not certified, and are ONLY able to provide basic “canned” coaching or generic “12-Step” programs.
