Your Business Coach Guildford

Angus Lyon is a business coach in Guildford.

Hi, I’m Angus Lyon your local business coach based in Compton (GU3) on the outskirts of Guildford.  You might have wondered what a business coach is, and how it might benefit your business.  I’m of course happy to have a no obligation chat with you – but here’s a bit of an overview of what business coaching is all about as well as an overview of some of the more ad-hoc workshops I can run for your business.

What is business coaching?

Business coaching ensures that you know what your priorities are and that you meet your goals and targets on a consistent basis.  You get mentored on how to grow your business in a way that is sustainable for you and your team.  In essence a business coach helps you go from good to great; and means you get the things out of life that are important to you

Works with Business owners

Ensuring your business is heading in the “right” direction

As a business owner, you have clients to satisfy, a team to manage and suppliers to chase – to name but a few things that are on your plate.  This day-to-day running of your business may not give you the time to take a small step back, check that your business is still heading in the right direction, and to focus on growth.  Sometimes owners that I work with have lost sight of their direction.  That’s fairly normal – and one of the things I can work with you and any partners you have is to facilitate you to rediscover / reimagine the direction you want to take your business.  I’ve found it’s one of the things that can really help business owners with their time management.

Providing owners with the skills they need for growth

When a business grows, more skills are usually needed by the business owner.  With time often at a premium usually a 2 day course based on someone else’s agenda is not what you need.  Your business coach Guildford can provide often short specific pieces of training input tailored for you and your business at the right time, to set you or your team on the right path.  This could range from a 7 minute video, to a 1 day tailored workshop – and everything in-between.

Facilitating your thinking

As an experienced business owner, most of the time you know the answer to issues that arise in the business, but sometimes, with 99 other things going on, the answer can be a bit buried deep in your mind. Or perhaps you’ve used an approach in one situation which could apply in a different situation. Your business coach Guildford enables you to unlock the answers that you already know. When something is your idea, you’re likely to be more committed to taking action. Sometimes you just want answers, and FAST!  I have experience and ideas which can move you and your business forward.

Providing accountability

Have you ever noticed that a week can just pass … and some of your priorities slip? Perhaps you don’t have clear priorities and goals.  Surely you don’t want to get to the end of the year, and have “no change” in your business?  I can provide accountability for you and your business.  Knowing that you’ve committed to do something, knowing that it fits with your businesses growth plans mean that YOUR likely to commit and deliver on that commitment.

Business Training

A shocking statistic was produced by a government agency that found that businesses that didn’t invest in business training were more likely to close than businesses that do invest in training.

Because training is important for individuals and the economy part of our mission is to share business growth tips.   On this site we plan to post useful articles about things that will be of interest to business owners.  For example, topics such Business Growth, Leadership, Team Development, Marketing and Innovation. You can use these tips to develop yourself and your business.  Please them for yourself and feel free to share them with others.  Of course, as your local business coach in Guildford, we’d love for you to become our client – but I only have a limited number of one to one coaching spots, and I also recognise that business coaching’s not for everyone – but our best selling Alignment and Strategy day is awesome … go on, you know it’s what your business needs.

Training others

When training other people Suzanne suggests that you use the 4MAT structure.

  • Tell people why it’s important
  • give people enough background so they know what you’re asking them
  • give them a chance to practice, and to see how it works and answer any questions
  • review – celebrate success or modify for future

We can of course run training sessions for you and / or your team. Contact us to confidentially discuss your specific requirements.

I have lots of tools, tips and techniques which can assist you in taking control of your business, putting in systems and very importantly taking control of the finances.

Free business healthcheck with Angus

This is a one hour FREE coaching session. Prior to the meeting, I will spend some time on the phone finding out a bit more about your business so that when you sit down to meet, you can make the most of your time with him.  It’s a good opportunity to see if the “chemistry” is there.   Might be worth mentioning that 3 of my entrepreneur business clients reached the finals of an International Business Awards competition.  I say that because I’m pretty confident that you’ll get massive value from the session.
