MEANING OF A BUSINESS COACH
Every endeavour of life requires one form of coaching or the other. Business coaches are the catalysts that help business owners get to their desired business goals and objectives. A business coach is not a teacher like many people think. Coaching helps nurture what is already within (something you learnt or a talent). A business coach does not come to the stable with business ideas. This is where MOST business consultants make promises that can never be fulfilled.
