Top 9 Lessons That You Can Learn From The Best Business Coach In India

First things first, what the hell is Business Coaching, and who is a Business Coach?

If that is what you are wondering, you are at the right place.

In the world of business and entrepreneurship, a business coach is the person who handholds you on your way to building a profitable and scalable business. Plain and simple.

Now if you’re thinking: Is that even a thing? How can someone help me build a business? Isn’t it all mostly about luck and so many other external factors? If not, ANYONE could be a business owner, right?

Wrong.

In this blog today, I will break a few myths and challenge a whole lot of misconceptions.

And that could be the 9 lessons you can learn from the best business coach in India who has been in the coaching business for 16 years!

What is Business Coaching?

Business coaching is a partnership between a business coach and the client. The business coach helps the client learn, develop, and become competent and capable business owners so that they are better equipped to produce breakthrough results in their businesses.

A business coach is more than just an advisor; they become your ‘strategic partner’.

Let me ask you a question.

Who is your favourite sportsperson?

I am sure you have a name ready – from the pool of Dhonis, Kohlis, Mirzas, Anands, and Tendulkars, you have picked up a name.

Now another question.

How do you think they made it to the list of the greats to be able to feature in your favourites?

Was it sheer “luck”? Or only “talent”?

Not taking away from all that they have achieved, or demeaning their talent in any way, but one thing that all “greats” have in common is COACHING.

No, don’t believe me. Believe the stats.

One study showed coaching clients improved skills in over 15 reported areas. 72% improved communication skills, 71% interpersonal skills, 70% work performance, and 67% work/life balance. 

The role of a business coach is to bring a fresh perspective to your business and help you see opportunities and challenges from a different angle.

It’s only with a coach’s guidance that you’ll learn how to make informed decisions and set clear objectives for your business.

Either that or with Time. But with time, won’t it be too late?

Coming back to what I intend on sharing with you – 9 lessons that I have learnt from my coaches and business mentors.

Lesson #1 Goal Clarity

This is the first and foremost – one of the fundamental lessons you can learn from a business coach is how to achieve greater clarity when it comes to your business goals. Here’s a more detailed explanation:

Setting clear and well-defined goals in your business and your personal life as well, is like having a roadmap – it gives you a sense of direction and a purpose. Without clear goals, chances are you’ll wander aimlessly, and at the end of it all, make no progress.

So how can a business coach help you here?

  • Coaches help you by asking the right questions
    Coaches are skilled at asking probing questions that help you think deeply and articulate what you truly want to achieve. In no time, like magic, you have your answers clear.
  • Coaches help you break down your goals
    The primary reason why business owners get baffled is because they view their large, vague goals. What business mentors do is break them down into smaller, actionable steps that don’t seem so unachievable.
  • Coaches help you set SMART goals (as “smart” as you!)
    They emphasize the importance of setting SMART goals – goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound.
  • Coaches help you align your goals with your values -They align your business goals with your core values and your long-term vision to increase your commitment to achieving those goals.
  • Coaches help you monitor your progress
    A coach provides a system for tracking your progress toward your goals. Regular check-ins help you stay on course and make necessary adjustments.

Lesson #2 Decision Making

But obvious?

Not quite, actually.

One of the most fundamental entrepreneurship skills you need to scale your business is to MAKE A DECISION. Very simple, but not very easy.

The choices you make can have a significant impact on your business’s success, growth, and overall direction.

Here’s where coaches step in.

  • Coaches help you assess options
    They guide you in evaluating strategies – to consider the pros and cons of each choice and assess potential risks and rewards.
  • Coaches help you clarify your goals
    A business coach aligns your decisions with your long-term goals. That ensures that your choices are in harmony with your overall strategy.
  • Coaches help you overcome Analysis Paralysis
    Many entrepreneurs struggle with indecision due to overthinking. Business coaches help you overcome analysis paralysis by providing frameworks for making decisions efficiently.
  • Coaches help you manage your emotions
    One of my major business services is this one – to help you manage emotions and not make impulsive choices that can harm your business.
  • Coaches help you learn from mistakes
    They help you understand that not all decisions will yield the desired outcomes. They encourage a growth mindset, where you learn from mistakes and use them as opportunities for improvement.
  • Coaches help you build confidence
    Effective decision-making boosts your confidence as a business leader. A business coach’s guidance can help you trust your judgment and make decisions with conviction.
  • Coaches help you adapt to change
    In today’s fast-paced business environment, the ability to make timely decisions is what’s most important. Coaches teach you how to adapt to change and make decisions swiftly when needed.

Lesson #3 Accountability

It’s a heavy word.

And heavier are its consequences if not done right.

Accountability is the concept of being responsible for your actions and the outcomes of those actions.

In a business context, accountability ensures that you follow through on your commitments, and meet your goals.

And that’s where coaches step in.

The idea is similar to having a personal trainer at the gym, who’d be after you if you don’t follow through on your commitments.

Here’s how coaches help:

  • They help set clear objectives
  • They regularly check progress
  • They hold you accountable
  • They identify obstacles
  • They celebrate your achievements
  • They adjust strategies

Lesson #4 Skill Enhancement

If you want to know more about How To Grow Your Business, this is the lesson you need to learn. The importance of skill enhancement, that is.

No skill is ever enough. And the need for skills is dynamic.

You need to update. You need to upgrade. And constantly so, to address your business scaling needs.

A business coach (myself, in this case!) can help you develop these skills:

  • Leadership Skills
    To make you a more effective leader by providing guidance on leadership styles, team management, and decision-making.
  • Communication Skills
    To improve your communication skills, both in one-on-one interactions and in group settings, to help you convey your ideas clearly, listen actively, and handle difficult conversations.
  • Problem-Solving Skills
    To build your ability to solve problems, business coaches often use real-world scenarios to develop your problem-solving skills.
  • Negotiation Skills – To help you improve your negotiation tactics, such as understanding the needs of the other party – whether you’re negotiating with clients, suppliers, or partners, negotiation skills are non-negotiable for win-win solutions.

Lesson #5 Time Management

Time is a finite resource.

And it waits for no man.

This is why it’s one of the most important entrepreneurship skills. How you manage time is the answer to how to grow your business.

As your coach, I can provide strategies and techniques to help you prioritize tasks, set goals, and manage your time more efficiently.

Here’s why Time Management matters:

  • Improved Productivity
    Accomplish more in less time. That simple. Your increased productivity can lead to higher output and better results.
  • Work-Life Balance
    A critical component of time management is to ensure a healthy work-life balance. As a coach, in my AND Life program, I teach you how to set boundaries and allocate time for personal and family life, effortlessly.
  • Goal Achievement
    Time management is closely tied to goal setting. Coaches help you set realistic goals and create action plans to achieve them within the available timeframes.
  • Minimized Procrastination
    Procrastination is a bigger killer of dreams than inaction is. As your business mentor, I will provide you with strategies to kill procrastination and stay on track.

Lesson #6 Work-Life Balance

Work-life balance refers to the equilibrium between your professional commitments and your personal life. It’s about allocating time and energy to both work-related responsibilities and personal well-being, such as family, health, and leisure activities.

Here’s how coaches help:

  • They assess if you’re spending too much time on work-related tasks
  • They help you prioritize your tasks and responsibilities by identifying what truly matters
  • They help you establish these boundaries, leading to reduced stress and improved relationships
  • They help you allocate time for your loved ones without affecting your work

Lesson #7 Team Leadership

The coaching business entails building leaders. It’s not unknown that leadership is the non-negotiable crucial quality of a business owner. You have to have that!

And it’s not something that everyone is born with; it’s a skill that has to be developed and honed.

Business Coaches help you by:

  • Building your communication skills
  • Teaching you conflict resolution techniques and templates
  • Teaching you the art of delegation
  • Teaching you how to build a team
  • Teaching you how to measure and evaluate performances
  • Teaching you how to set clear expectations and define roles

Lesson #8 Long Term Success

A business coach helps you develop a long-term vision for your business. Instead of focusing solely on short-term gains, they encourage you to consider the bigger picture. This involves defining where you want your business to be in the coming years and creating a strategic roadmap to get there.

Here’s where business coaches step in:

  • They help you become stable and consistent
  • They teach you how to adapt to changes and build resilience
  • They teach you how to grow sustainably
  • They teach you strategies to build a legacy-driven business
  • They teach you risk-mitigation techniques
  • They teach you how to measure success

Lesson #9 Profit Growth

All promises are pointless if the business coach is unable to provide you with the necessary business growth help.

Right?
