Find out why business advice from a business coach works
Business coaching builds success by providing business owners with the business planning tools to strategically improve their business processes - freeing time, money and resources to implement techniques that lift your business to the next level.
Here are some facts about how Astute Business Coaching can provide you with the business advice and mentoring you need:
A No Risk Guarantee
Astute Business Coaching expert Brian Duckworth is so confident that he can provide you with the specific business strategies you need to help your business that he offers a 30 Day Guarantee. If, within 30 days of coaching commencing, you are not satisfied with our services, you can terminate your coaching agreement and receive a full refund.
Can you guarantee specific results?
While our clients achieve significant benefits from coaching and learning new processes, techniques and training, the nature of coaching means we are unable to offer any guarantees as to the specific results that will be achieved. The role of the coach is to empower the client, but it is not the role of the coach to make decisions on behalf of the client or to ‘run' the business. The ultimate responsibility for results always rests with the client.
What is the Astute coaching structure?
The level of business coaching you receive depends greatly on the strategy you choose, such as Business Coaching, Business Mentoring, Business Improvement, Business Planning or any of our Coaching Products.
However, an example of an effective program could be: 50 minute sessions, 4 times per month - either over the phone or face-to-face. This is supplemented by "E-Coaching" by email at no extra charge, plus the occasional "Power Coaching Call" (5 minutes) to share a success or raise a discussion point for the next session. You must also commit to completing the fieldwork for each session, which assists and empowers you with the learning, growth, action and results that lead to ongoing successes.
Astute business coaching also provides free business planning information via our Blog and Free Resources page on our website.
How long would we work together?
Generally clients seek massive change to re-invigorate and transform their business - to obtain this level of transformation and achieve breakthrough results a program must run from 12 to 18 months. As a bare minimum, a 3-month program of 12 sessions will enable some change to occur.
It's common for clients to start with a 3 to 6-month program and build on those achievements. Very simply, Brian suggests to clients that they stay for as long as they love the coaching - and the results!
Who are your clients?
Astute Business Coaching clients are Business Owners in the Small to Medium enterprise category, seeking to achieve massive change within their business to:
Some owners want to change their business into a ‘lifestyle business' where they become more of an investor than operator, enabling them to focus on other ventures, family and lifestyle choices. Many of our coaching products can lead to down this path.
Look at testimonials and case studies to get a sense of our client base and what we help them to achieve.
Is Coaching confidential?
Client confidentiality is maintained at all times. Business coaches and clients must operate on a foundation of honesty, trust and respect - at Astute Business Coaching we understand that your ultimate well-being is the central focus of our coaching relationship.
What if I decide not finish the coaching term?
If at some point during the coaching you're not getting value, we'll both know it. You may cease coaching at the end of any four week cycle, and get a full refund for the unused portion of your coaching product. You would then be charged at the normal monthly rate for the coaching you have used, rather than any discounted rate.
