What is one thing about your business that others want to know?
I'm curious to know if SavvySMEs are aware that others might want to know about their Business. Teaching others is a great way to generate new energy in and around your Business. What one thing would others want to know about your business? Have you ever tried to teach others some aspect of what you do?
I like your question Ingrid, and I will try to provide a short answer! With my industry - Virtual Assistance - the main thing that others don't know about is that we exist, especially in the regional areas. The attraction with partnering with a VA varies on the client needs and their business goals, and the benefits are varied. But what I really want to tell business owners about VAs is 2 things - VAs care about your business success and we are collaborative!
Virtual Assistant work very well to support small business.
Great question Ingrid.
As a business and transformational coach 'Teaching others...' is arguably an integral part of the process as 'one thing' consistently asked (about my business) is what exactly is 'Coaching'?
From experience, individuals tend to label coaching as; counseling, therapy, training, teaching, mentoring or into a niche / specific business specialism. In reality coaching is a blend of all of these things yet so much more; leadership, positive psychology, confidant, etc.
Regarding your final inquiry '... teach others some aspect of what you do?' As a prerequisite to any engagement, I always have an open discussion around their definitions and expectations of the coaching process before I define my role as a Coach is to;
... facilitate 'Insight' into 'Action' or 'Acceptance'.
Once again, great question and hope this helps, regards Bill
