Resources for Coaching Business Plan Examples

Writing a coaching business plan is a difficult task regardless of your level of experience, but referring to coaching business plan examples can make the process a lot easier. While the content of your business plan is critical to its effectiveness, the layout and the format you utilize are equally as important. To get started, you should research various coaching business plan examples and find out which best suits your niche. The biggest mistake people make when writing their business plan is using a generic template provided in your text editing software, like Microsoft Word. These templates are usually outdated and would have probably been used by many business owners. Avoid the quick-fix mentality of these business plan templates, and invest some time in finding resources that will provide you with up-to-date helpful ways to compose a winning business plan.

Resources for Coaching Business Plan Examples

The easiest and least expensive way to find samples of coaching business plans is to do a search on the Internet. Before you get started, a word of caution: consider the sources of information before you decide to utilize any of their suggestions on your business plan. You will come across websites that promise to teach you how to write a business plan in 10 minutes. Don’t believe them. Unless you decided to hire a business plan writer, obtaining resources on business plan writing should not cost you any money or obligate you to a long-term commitment. If you are unsure of the credibility of the information you come across, find another source and compare your findings.

Some Coaching Business Plan Examples

A great online resource on business plan writing is Bplans.com. While they are mostly known for their online collection of free sample business plans for professionals in a number of different industries, they also offer a variety of other information and services for those looking to build and grow their business. Under the Business Ideas tab, you will find a wealth of information on starting a business, becoming an entrepreneur, advice by industry experts, and of course, information on coming up with the right business ideas and putting them into a business plan. In addition to articles about business planning, Bplans.com also includes articles and expert advice on business pitching, funding and managing a business.

Career and Life Coaching: The Pursuit of Possibilities

Career and Life Coaching: The Pursuit of Possibilities

Jack sat down at his desk and routinely writes on a variety of subjects related to career and life coaching. He also writes on the wonder of becoming an entrepreneur and developing a business. While a student at a coaching academy, he also had a demanding full-time IT career with a major investment bank. Throughout his career, he has seen, heard or read about businesses that are woefully inadequate when it comes to employee recruitment and retention efforts. The employees these companies are able to hire may not be a good fit and the employee is often immediately interested in using his or her job as a stepping-stone to something better.

Career and Life Coaching: The Pursuit of Possibilities

On the other hand, there are companies that are excellent in both employee recruitment and retention. The reasons may be many, but one of the most important reasons is that the employer sees their staff (team) as an asset to be cherished instead of a commodity to be used.

Jack discovers that when an employee finds himself or herself in this second type of atmosphere, they are well-suited to long-term employment in a more team-oriented environment. He believes everyone needs to find a place where they can tap into their natural talents. This can be in either a team-oriented workplace or in a personally directed entrepreneurial effort. In addition, employees or entrepreneurs need to self-coach themselves.

Career and Life Coaching: Self-Coaching Tips for Employees and Entrepreneurs

During his own transition from salaried employee status to that of career and life coach, he used the following five self-coaching tips regularly. He now shares these tips with his coaching students.

1.  Be Open to Alternative Ideas
One potential downside of the social and peer conditioning in schools and corporate life, is that many people automatically resist or even consider new ideas. Why is this? Jack’s experience suggests that these people have learned by experience not to rock the boat. If you think this looks and smells like fear of failure, you’d be absolutely right. As an employee or entrepreneur, your challenge is to notice alternative ways of achieving objectives. Practically speaking, even if only a small percentage of these ideas might be useful in your work or business, they could still be the difference between success and failure.

2.  Experience Life to The Max
The more richness and vitality you can find in the ordinary aspects of your everyday life, the better equipped you will be to handle the ups and downs, and yes, the occasional boredom, of completing job tasks or running and operating your solo business. So, what are you going to enjoy doing on the next Saturday afternoon?

3.  Who Needs More Accountability?
Probably all us…based on what Jack has observed about effective career and life coaching. It comes down to this. There are two primary ways of making real and usually lasting changes in an employee’s or an entrepreneur’s life. Number 1 is raising awareness and number 2 is taking responsibility. (Notice that taking responsibility does not necessarily mean taking 100% responsibility. The degree of responsibility taken is a matter of practicalities as much as personal ownership).

As far as self-coaching goes, taking more responsibility invariably ends up in applied personal accountability. Choosing to compassionately but precisely observe your behavior several times a day can add up over time to a liberating feeling of accepting more accountability and all that goes with the territory. Are you up to this challenge? Just start with a basic intention of being more accountable and notice what happens over a period of weeks and months.

4.  Get to the Point
Getting to the point is in danger of becoming a lost art in a corporate world where taking responsibility is akin to a highly contagious and career limiting disease! And that’s probably why it surprises many new employees or business owners when they comprehend just how many hours in their already busy days are being expended in not getting to the point. In this arena, self-coaching works well with simple acts of observation. All you have to do at the start of each activity is to ask yourself: “What’s the point of this?” Keep asking and you’ll find the answers.

5.  The Art of Polite Conversation
People spend a lot of time glued to computer screens. However, it is probably a good idea to be able to have polite conversations with others in person, via email, on the phone, or via Skype-chat etc. The ability to talk in a polite and respectful manner, and still get the job done, is a skill that will never age! In fact, a set of basic rules based on the art of polite conversation is probably the single best thing you can do for your own peace of mind and happiness in your work or business.
