STARTUP COACHING

What It's All About

Working one-on-one with a startup coach is about:

  • Identifying a clear vision, goals and measures of success

  • Assessing the current situation and opportunities for progress

  • Clarifying, questioning, and testing assumptions

  • Organizing priorities & focusing on results

  • Developing leadership and self-management skills 

  • Making concrete action plans and creating accountability

The Advantages of Coaching

Working with a coach provides a number of benefits over working with a mentor or consultant:

  • the coaching agenda is set by you, based on your priorities 

  • the coach works independently of your stakeholders or investors

  • as such, a coach has no bias or conflicting interest in any particular outcome or direction

  • your confidentiality is assured with an accredited coach as they are held to a code of conduct

  • coaching addresses the entrepreneur as a whole person, with goals, values, and challenges that extend beyond the business

  • coaching provides a structured and scheduled opportunity for the entrepreneur to stop and reflect

What It Costs

A successful coaching engagement requires both financial and time commitments. It is critical to be focused during coaching sessions, and to take action between sessions to move towards your goals. The financial commitment can vary depending on the situation and frequency of sessions, but a typical monthly investment falls between $350 and $450.
