What is a Business Coach?

WhatI have been called a business coach, an advisor, a teacher, a mentor, a consultant, and a pest. I bring what the situation demands. It may be individual or team coaching; leadership workshops and programs; strategic planning facilitation. It can be a one-day retreat or an ongoing dialog. There are times I will even join an organization for weeks and months to help them determine the structure that will serve them best into the future. The results are better communications with fewer emails. Better collaboration with fewer meetings. More productivity with fewer hours. More commitment, engagement, innovation, and ownership.
