Small business owners in Orange County, Los Angeles County, San Diego County and across the country are looking for many things. Some seek strategic guidance. Others want to see their marketing campaigns deliver better results. Or their sales efforts bear more fruit. But whatever the motivation to seek coaching is, just about every business owners can benefit from exploring Business Between The Ears. In other words, their mindset.
Business owners, entrepreneurs and executives hire business coaches hoping they will give them the right answers. But HUM Business Coaching believes that it’s better to ask questions.
Asking powerful questions gets people thinking. And when we get unstuck and begin pondering the question, something really cool can happen: Business owners can find their own answers.
To be honest, a business owner doesn’t need a coach to ask powerful questions. But it is important to learn how to ask the right questions.
You see, when we feel like we are spinning our wheels, sometimes the problem is that we are asking the wrong questions.
For example, if you ask yourself, “Why am I such a failure?”
Your brain will go into hyper-drive searching for reasons why. Which reinforces your “failure.”
So what if, instead of “Why am I such a failure?” you instead asked yourself, “What can I do differently?” Or: “What did I learn from this experience that will help me do better next time?” Or even: “What’s good about this?”
Asking powerful question is an important part of Business Between the Ears. It’s based on the premise that our beliefs drive our behavior — and will to a great degree determine how successful we are in business — and in life.
Here are some of the qualities of a successful business mindset that are explored in the Business Between The Ears
- Team Player
- Organizational Skills
- Leadership Skills
- Sense of Humor
- Work habits
There are two more factors that will determine whether or not the Business Between the Ears approach will work…or not: Clarity and accountability.
- First, we need to be clear on where we are now, where we’d like to go, and what we believe we need to do to get there.
- Second, we need to have the willingness to be held accountable for our actions — or inaction.
So, what sort of business owner might benefit from mindset coaching? It really doesn’t matter what industry the owner is in, how old they are, or the size of their company. What it all comes down to is a desire to work on their beliefs and attitudes — and a willingness to be coached.
