It’s often said that you don’t know what you don’t know. Nothing could be more true when it comes to business ownership. Developing the processes that can sustain a growing business, training your leaders to successfully scale for many years to come, and creating sustainable value that withstands the test of time is challenging, albeit essential for success in business. Because these are skills you simply can’t develop until you’re experiencing those specific tasks for yourself, many business owners strike up a relationship with a business coach. This relationship gives business owners expertise to leverage when they are facing firsts in their business. Not all business coaches are created equally though, just like not all businesses are playing on the same field. It’s important to find a coach or an organization of coaches who can relate to your experiences and add value to them. One key way to ensure this is by hiring locals. As a small or midsize business owner, the community in which you operate can have major impacts on how you go about successfully doing business. A local business coach will understand that and can offer more targeted insights to help your organization find success.
