Why You Need a Business Coach

Why You Need a Business Coach | Coaching Leaders |

An outsider's perspective can be more valuable than you suspect.


Steve Jobs had Bill Campbell.

Jodie Foster leaned on Robert De Niro.

Andy Murray has Ivan Lendl.

High performers in any field typically have a coach or mentor. A great coach provides you with the benefit of their experience and asks more questions than they answer. They force you to think about your business in ways that you wouldn’t do on your own.

Everyone needs a coach!

The Learning Factor's curator insight, November 6, 2013 6:46 PM

The greats from all walks of life use a coach to get even better. But don’t obsess over finding a mentor from your own industry. Sometimes the very best coaches know nothing about your industry. It is their status as an outsider that makes their perspective so valuable.

We all belong to the communion of Saints and of sinners. Thank you Peter Folan, SJ @TheJesuitPost for a reminder to look, see & remember the great coaches that we've all experienced.
