In today’s economic uncertainty there seems to be a lot of people running around the country calling themselves consultants and coaches. I’ve been doing some research on my competitors recently and quite frankly I’m shocked at how many people consider themselves experts on growing businesses. It seems that the popular thing to do to today if you’re an unemployed corporate executive is to hang out a shingle and call yourself a consultant or coach. And interestingly many of these same folks have very little if any background in running businesses or owning a business. And yet because they worked for some big Fortune 500 corporation that qualifies them to advise small businesses.
Well I think if you are considering working with these folks and anyone that can help your business (including me), here are some questions that you should ask them to make sure you are getting the right fit for your business.
Those 5 questions can really help you determine if this person is right for you. You want to know exactly what they will do for you and your company. And you want to know how they will do it and what experience they have doing with companies like yours.
I don’t think there is any question that a good business coach or consultant is extremely important no matter what type of business you are in. To have someone that can keep you accountable and provide you with a framework to help you stay laser focused on what you need to do to keep your business moving forward and growing is essential. But also remember that there are a lot of people out there right now that don’t have the expertise, experience and process to help you even though they claim they can.
