There are many things to consider when choosing business coaching. One consideration is group coaching vs. individual coaching. While much of the information below can be applied to other coaching programs, the goal of this blog is to help you identify which type of coaching from Amy Lynne Coaching is best for you and your business. Here is a quick summary of group coaching and individual coaching and a couple of examples of each:
The group setting is ideal for people who:
- like to collaborate
-are opening to sharing successes and struggles with a group
-are open to learning and sharing their knowledge
-are looking to strengthen the foundations of their business
-are seeking a lower-cost option
-are okay with less personal attention from the coach
-are seeking to learn about a wide variety of business topics
Example 1: A freelance writer with a few clients has decided to go full-time in their business. They are ready to learn more about their ideal client, how to package their services, and how to find their best (and shortest) route to customers. They are looking to learn from others, ready to share what they know, and want a more structured environment to keep them on track for growth.
Example 2: A home organizer had been working for about a year on their own. While they have been able to build a small client base, they are ready to take their business to the next level and are not sure where to start. They are looking for support, ideas, and tools to help them grow. They are involved in some FB groups and like learning from others. They are looking for some structured learning, more accountability, and a place to connect with other business owners who “get it”.
Individual coaching is ideal for people who:
-have defined goals, but feel like they need some additional tools to reach them
-are seeking accountability and support to keep them on track
-value an outside perspective, and are willing to learn and try new things
-are open to going deep in their business
-are open to a higher-cost service and value personal attention from a coach
-are looking for clarity on the best next steps to help them reach their goals
Example 1: A chiropractor who has been on their own for a couple of years is looking for an outside perspective to help grow their business and provide some accountability. They have a clear idea of where they want to go, and even some of the pieces they needed to get there but have had trouble staying on track and executing well. Each day seems to fly by. They are looking for an outside perspective and more focus and clarity on the best next steps to keep them on a path of growth.
Example 2: A real estate professional who left the corporate world to have more flexibility, and a higher income potential. They are looking for strategy, support, and someone to walk with them on their journey. They crave confidence for their next steps and value having a sounding board. They know they will need new skills to keep their business growing, especially in the area of sales. They are looking for new strategies and ways of thinking and someone to keep them laser-focused on their goals.
