What is Business Coaching?
The role of the business coach is to assist business owners to improve their business results by providing support, guidance, motivation and mentoring in the areas of:
Sales and Marketing
Increased control of your business
More personal time to achieve a better work life balance
Greater enjoyment of your business
Improved financial performance
Business coaching does not achieve results overnight and involves an on-going commitment by both parties. To maximise the effectiveness of Business Coaching, both parties need to agree that their relationship will be built upon the values of honesty, trust, confidentiality, reliability, dependability, practicality, relevance and commitment.
Cost $80 per hour + GST.

Responsibilities of the Coach
All information concerning the client will be held in strict confidence by the coach and CSBEC.
The coach?s role is to assist and educate the client to develop better business skills and practices to help achieve better long-term business results.
Commit sufficient time to the Business Coaching process to maximise results.
Provide honest feedback on business systems and performance that will lead to improved business systems, business capability and individual skills.

Business Coaching is an advisory service. Any advice, verbal or written, rendered by my business coach is given in good faith, and no responsibility can by taken by my business coach for the consequences of reliance placed on such advice.
It is understood that neither the business coach nor CSBEC take any responsibility for the success or failure of the client?s business venture.
The role of the coach is advisory and not of actually doing the activity itself. Should you specifically request the business coach to implement activities for you, then this will incur an additional fee.
Both parties recognise that at times one or the other of the parties may be unavailable and that it may be necessary to reschedule a business meeting. Where possible, such notice will be five working days prior to an appointment, but no less than 24 hours in advance.
The initial commitment from both parties is for a six month period which will be reviewed after three months to ensure satisfaction with the service.
