When was the last time you sat on your deck

When was the last time you sat on your deck
When was the last time you sat on your deck, stared up at the stars and wondered if we are actually alone? Okay I know romantic thoughts and the nature of a stereo typical construction boss are not normally found in the same sentence so let’s try again. How often do you find your self hiding out on your deck, with a strong drink in your hand just hoping there was some one out there you can call?

 

Well there is and they didn’t just drop from the stars. Who are they? Trades Coaching New Zealand and the reason they did not drop from the stars is because they are ex New Zealand trades people, which means they know what you need, what you want, what you are going through and talk to you in your language.

A Trades Coaching New Zealand business coach does not show you how to use your tools on site but specialises on the business side of your company, however being ex-trades people they do know all aspects of construction including the building act and building law.

Traditionally business support has been via seminars, books, casual advice, accountants etc. All relevant and worthwhile however this passive style of support has one major fault. You go back to work with all the best intentions of putting the advice in place and then the phone rings, materials have not been delivered, the vans broken down, John is sick today, Mrs Jones wants to see you because she thought the kitchen was going to be blue etc etc. Sound familiar? And it’s only Monday! If Tuesday, Wednesday and the rest of the week goes in the same vain the changes you had the best intentions of initiating keep getting put back and back and never actually happen. 

The most effective method of business support is a system of active coaching. This means the advice is given, tailored to suit your business, plus a Trades Coaching business coach is sitting beside you helping you put it in place.

Let’s look at how it works, there are two sides to business coaching. One side is the areas of the business we work with you on, planning, team, systems, marketing, financials etc. The other side is the support side. It can get very lonely being the boss but with a Trades Coaching New Zealand coach on your team means having somebody on your side to talk to, pat you on the back when it goes well, pull you back when your direction is questionable, get a second view point on an idea or decision or just to rant and rave to get it out of your system.

A Trades Coaching New Zealand business coach will look at all aspects of your business without the emotional attachment you have when you try and make a decision. They will make a decision and offer advice based purely on what’s best for you, your business, the future and making sure it is financially viable. 

By far and away the biggest part of business coaching is what they term as the “accountability factor”. Business does not have to be rocket science. 

Bring it back to basics, keep it simple and your business will be successful. As business owners you are the experts, you know your business better than anybody else. The accountability factor means that a Trades Coaching New Zealand business coach makes sure you actually make the changes that are necessary to make. 

So who will benefit from a Trades Coaching New Zealand business coach? The answer is everybody, they have coaching packages to suit all levels of a company’s maturity. If you have an idea and want it turned into a viable business they can help. If you want to grow your company to the next level they can help. If you have grown too fast but your systems and structures have not caught up they can help. If it is time to sell they can help. If you have lost motivation or you are just tired they can help. If there are problems or issues within the business they can help. Being ex trades people themselves and having an extensive support system within Trades Coaching New Zealand there is nothing they have not seen or experienced, even the owner of the company Terry Sage is a qualified carpenter and joiner. One question they get asked on a regular basis is “why do I need a business coach?” Terry’s answer to that is “New Zealand has some of the best sporting stars in the world, none have got to the top on their extraordinary skills alone they all have a support net work and coaches behind them. Put a Trades Coaching New Zealand coach next to you in your office and with their experience you can take your business and your extraordinary skills to where ever you want them to go”.

The first step of business coaching is to request a no obligation, complimentary business analysis session which will allow your coach to look at your business, uncover with your help the path forward and explain where Trades Coaching New Zealand can support you.  

There is one major challenge facing Trades Coaching New Zealand and that’s the issue of having more clients than coaches, a nice position to be in.
In order to keep the quality of service that is demanded by the company owners and to cover the whole country more coaches are needed, read across the page if being a Trades Coaching New Zealand coach could be your future.
