Why You Need a Business Coach Yeah, you need One

The world changes and we must change along with it. It's human nature to want to be better and want more. Desire is a good thing when properly applied. Obsession can work for you when channeled into action and results.

The problem comes is that the skills that got you to where you are might have served you well in getting here. However, most don't see the scotoma or "blind spot" that is holding them back from making the leap to the next level. Coaching provides the bridge to get you to that higher playing arena.

It's hard to see your own blind spots.

Accountability is one of the greatest strengths of working with a coach. Remember, it's difficult to get a truly objective answer from yourself about your restaurant, but a great coach will always tell you the truth, even if you don’t want to hear it.

A Business Coach is better than a consultant for many reasons. With years of successful experience that can provide valuable insight, your Restaurant Coach™ will help you develop long-term and short term goals and strategies, as well as improve your restaurant in areas that you might have overlooked. You may be able to survive in business without the help of a Coach, but it's almost impossible to thrive...

A Coach can help you see the forest for the trees.

• A Coach will make you focus on the game and your long-term strategies.

• A Coach will make you run more laps while making each round easier and more efficient.

• A Coach will tell it like it is.

• A Coach will give you small pointers based on years of experience.

• A Coach will listen.

• A Coach will help you develop long-term plans that will allow your restaurant to function more efficiently and make more profit.

Let's talk about the elephant in the room...

A Restaurant Coach is just like a sporting coach. A sporting coach pushes an athlete to achieve optimum performance, provides support when they are exhausted and teaches the athlete to execute plays that their competition does not anticipate.

A sporting coach will make you run more laps than you feel like. A sporting coach will tell it like it is. And a sporting coach will listen.

My role as The Restaurant Coach™ is to coach restaurant owners to improve their business through guidance, support and encouragement. They help the owners of independent restaurants with their sales, marketing, management, team building and so much more. Just like a sporting coach, as your coach I will make you focus on the game.

The owners of independent restaurants find it hard enough to keep pace with all the changes and innovations going on in today's modern world, let alone to find the time to devote to sales, marketing, systems, planning and team management, and then to run their businesses as well!

The problem in most restaurants today is they have settled for average. Average is a failing formula.
