The Coaches perspective
Working with Melissa from Oracle is a great example of an extremely knowledgeable business person who knows their stuff. Melissa is the expert in small business financials; where to find more profit, how to reduce risk, how to reduce expenses, forecasting cash-flow, controlling debt etc! Her biggest struggle was leading a team and growing a business without having someone to bounce idea’s off and keep her on plan.
Our coaching sessions give Melissa an opportunity to vent to someone (me!) who is not finically or emotionally tied to the business. She is often dished up a serve of cold hard facts and it is rare that I am telling her something she is not already aware of. Having my perspective gives her confidence in her decisions and no way to wiggle out of the bits of the business she does not enjoy so much. We set high K.P.I’s for Mel and her team at Oracle to achieve. When does achieve we celebrate, when she doesn’t we revisit the strategy.
That is Melissa on the left and me on the right! In the middle is another client of mine, Marie from Fedorov Family Lawyers.
