Choosing a Business & Career Coach

What to expect from an Executive Coach

Like with any form of coaching, an executive coach is there to act as a mentor to help you achieve your goals. More specifically, the goals relating to your business or career. The first step is to identify your aims and any stumbling blocks that you are currently experiencing. During the process, your executive coach will draw on their corporate experience to help you move forward.

Every executive coach will have a different approach to their work. However, the overall aim is to motivate and encourage your journey so that you can succeed professionally. Often, you’ll attend several sessions either in person or virtually to discuss your progress. Some require just a handful of sessions. However, some people prefer creating and maintaining a long-term relationship with their executive coach as they progress with their career.

What to look for in a Business or Career Coach

Your business isn’t just your livelihood, it’s the combination of your passion and ambition too. So when it comes to hiring a business or career coach, you want someone who shares the same determination for it to succeed.

Business coaches, often referred to as executive coaches, usually have a corporate background. Preferably, they will have real life experience in managing their own business too. This includes successfully overcoming challenges so that they can best help you overcome yours too.

Every business is different. However, the qualities to look out for aside from experience is someone motivated, knowledgeable, and firm when needed. You should leave each session feeling empowered, ready to make the necessary improvements.

Different types of Executive Coaching

Executive coaching is a broad definition that may cover several different approaches, depending on whether it’s for yourself or the wider business. You may be an employee looking to reach your potential within your job, or looking to go it alone with a new business venture. So it’s vital to select the right type of executive coaching for your needs.

  • Business Coaching - A business coach will help train and mentor you to become more successful. It is different from business consultancy where external teams will come in and make changes. Instead, business coaching is about giving you the tools to adapt your business model or strategy yourself, so that you fully understand what needs to happen. The aim is to create a long-lasting change in the business through the knowledge gained and the strategies you have developed with your coach.

  • Career Coaching - Feeling uninspired in your current job role? Want to go for that promotion, but don’t know how? Career coaching takes an individual look at where you are now and compares it with where you want to be. It will take into account things such as your personality, as well as your strengths and weaknesses. By identifying what is currently holding you back, your career coach will help you reach your potential in the workplace.

  • Personal Development - Personal development is a huge part of executive coaching. Whether you are an employee, are self-employed, or are the CEO of a large company - everyone can benefit from personal development. It can include everything from boosting your confidence to handling stress better. Or, areas such as public speaking and even improving your time management. If there are aspects that are holding you back in your business or job, then personal development will tackle these head-on.

  • Leadership Skills - Not everyone is a born leader. It could be you have been promoted to a managerial position or are aiming to be, but lack the skills or personal attributes to get there. Leadership skills will take a closer look at what is needed to manage a team. A great manager should possess confidence in their ability, but equally, not micromanage. They also need to be great coaches in themselves, which is why executive coaching that focuses on leadership skills can give you the tools you need to do just that. It may also highlight any areas of weakness so you can become the best version of yourself when it comes to your management style.

How to check an Executive Coach’s credentials

Various executive coaching programs exist, such as AoEC and INSEAD. However, what’s most important is that your coach has the real life experience of running a business. They must understand workplace procedure as well as the ins and outs of business so that they are best placed to coach you. While some executive coaches also work as therapists, the two are separate entities. Though, if you are also looking to work on your personal development, a coach who works across both areas may be of benefit.

Can I access Business & Career Coaching online?

Yes! This service is known as virtual executive coaching. What’s great about virtual coaching is that it’s more convenient versus travelling to a session after work. You can even get business or career coaching during your lunch break when accessed online. As business coaches are located around the world, virtual sessions may also mean you can access the very best professionals who otherwise would be out of reach.

Why is Business Coaching important?

Running a business can be very challenging. There are so many factors that could inhibit the success of a business, regardless of whether your company is a startup or is long-established. Business coaching invites an experienced but, crucially, a neutral individual to give you a fresh perspective on where your business is heading. It can act as much-needed support for any current issues you are experiencing.

Business coaching is also very useful for anyone considering starting a company too. Your coach will help you draw on your current personal strengths, as well as working on any weaker points to ensure you get off to a successful start. They will help you stay motivated so that your business becomes a reality, instead of remaining a pipedream.

How much do Business Coaches charge?

Pricing for business coaching will vary depending on if you require individual coaching, or whether you are looking for wider consultancy across the whole business. Some executive coaches may also charge more for individual sessions versus block sessions.

Should I get a Career Coach?

Career coaching is geared towards those who are ready to make actionable changes in their professional life. So, if you are ready to take your career to the next level, and are willing to listen and put the work in to get there, then yes.

What do you love most about your job?

I love seeing the progress my clients make and the transformations that they have.

Seeing people go from feeling stuck on a hamster wheel, dreading going to work, wondering what else they could or should be doing to being confident in their career choices, waking up wanting to go to work, feeling energised, motivated and loving what they do! Removing their insecurities, reducing stress and overwhelm and having a better work-life balance is what makes my job the best in the world...

I am so passionate about creating career happiness for everyone. Life is too short to be unfulfilled and unhappy at work so I am driven to help you understand what you want and need from your career and how to make that happen. Finding the ideal career that makes you happy is what makes me happy too!

What inspired you to start your own business?

I created my first business to allow flexibility around my young children, to bring a unique product to market to improve children's health and happiness and to have opportunities for growth.

After qualifying as a professional coach, I wanted to be able to provide a service for clients that really aligned with my personal and professional values and the best way to do this was by having my own business. This allows me to have the flexibility to determine the support, solutions and success of my coaching business.

Why should our clients choose you?

I have unique knowledge, experience and professional qualifications that I want to use to help you have a career that makes you happy. I am curious, compassionate and committed to change to make things easier and better for you. My coaching style is action oriented, solutions based and uses positive psychology whilst focussing on your strengths. As a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF) I adhere to their Code of Ethics which holds me accountable and responsible to act with honesty and integrity at all times.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

The majority of my coaching sessions are on line using Zoom however can be face to face if you live local to me or are in London.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

Whenever it is necessary, I will only coach on line to limit any risks in relation to Covid-19. No other changes have been required.

I am writing this testimonial for Gareth Penrhyn who is a Mindset/ Life Coach. I was looking for a Mindset coach to give me direction and structure in my life. One of my ambitions and dreams is to become a Tennis Coach and with Gareth’s support I have achieved my LTA 1 Core Tennis Qualification, completed my first Aid and now coach Clients for Tennis. Throughout the morning sessions with Gareth he as coached me to, whilst before use to dwell on subjects , i am now more motivated to organise myself for the day ahead which helps me structure my day more with my tennis sessions/business and work. The session really go deep about yourself looking at how to deal with your emotions,this has made me stop, think and breath about the way I go about things. With Gareth’s help I have changed the way I how I see myself and have changed my outlook on life. I feel I have more discipline, I am more open minded, more patient and nowhere as hard on myself. I am more focused. I chip away at my actions and life goals now with purpose and direction rather than looking for a quick fix. I have more peace of mind and more positive about my ambitions moving forward. Additionally I am way less distracted and influenced by outside factors and others peoples opinions and feel like I am truly being myself. I am really appreciate Gareth’s Coaching and I continue to work with him as I move forward and I can’t recommend him enough for anyone looking to change their life and have lasting change.

After an extensive search of life coaches I discovered Lesley's information and was very much drawn towards her qualifications and existing healthcare experience. At this particular stage of my life I had recently been through a divorce, struggling to gain focus on work and lacking personal and life goals. In addition to this I was also managing an underlying health issue. My initial call with Lesley was very encouraging and I felt more than happy to start my process with her. During the past 8 months we have worked on various aspects of my personal and business life and the results have been superb. I was always very mindful of trusting the process and after a few months everything started to fall into place. I have enjoyed the journey and will continue to work with Lesley in all aspects of my life. As my son said to me recently "I love the new Dad ... he's great" Thank you Lesley for all your help and guidance.
