It’s important to make sure you have the right mindset when assessing the growth of your business model and the steps you need to take to ensure you’re on the right track. Most businesses go through some form of coaching to assist their management team, but knowing what type of business coach you need is the key.
There are a number of things you need to assess before making your decision. It is important to determine what you need out of a business coach. Are you focused on your management team, or the overall processes of the business? Do you need them to address long or short-term goals? Knowing these elements will make the difference as to whether you need an EOS Implementer or a Business Coach.
What is the difference between an EOS Implementer and Business Coach?
The business coach is there for the long-haul, and works with the company through every development of the organization. The EOS Implementer works in a series of steps through a systematic process that is customized for the business model to pinpoint where the organization needs help and the steps to take in order to correct any deficiencies. They have a series of goals and objectives. Once reached, they move on.
Knowing the goals of the company are key in deciding which one is best. A coach will continuously be available to assist with the infrastructure, but an EOS Implementer provides coaching for the management team to be able to handle those issues in the infrastructure on their own for long-term effectiveness.
If cost is a factor, a business coach will continue to use monetary resources over a non-defined period of time. This means there is always an open door for advisement and other business matters. Depending on the type of company you have, this may be effective. An EOS Implementer has a set timetable in which to achieve effectiveness and could be an asset to cost-savings that will not impact the bottom line.
Many managers and business owners like the security of having a business coach to contact when things go awry, while other organizations want to learn the information they need, apply it throughout the organization and keep things moving.
Both can be effective solutions for your business and both will provide insight on how to improve functionality. Determining which one is best is up to you, but in terms of cost-effectiveness, an EOS Implementer may be a better choice to deliver the best overall savings.
