Why do you need a Business Coach?

business coachAbout 4 years ago, the business I was running was up for sale. After three start-ups over 20 years, I was ready for a different challenge, that challenge was Corporate. Realizing my skills were limited in Corporate, I decided to find a business coach, who had been successful in a Corporate to prepare me for the change.

I knew no one who had a coach and no one in a senior level in a corporate, so I went on to Linked-in and found three coaches in Sydney. Interviewed all three and selected the person who asked me the most challenging questions, and made me feel a little uneasy. I knew this was what I needed if I was going to develop skills for corporate leadership.

My mentors had been great and really helped me develop, but I was ready for something a little more challenging. I engaged Phil Crenigan to help me with my journey. He has worked with me through many different phases over the last 4 year including; preparing to move from entrepreneurial business to corporate, career planning, building high performance teams, developing executive skills, networking and much more.

My progress has accelerated and the biggest benefit from my whole journey with Phil, is that he has taught me to be a better coach.

Mentors remain important, but if you truly want to accelerate your career a business coach is a must.
