What is a business coach?

A business coach:

  • is a professional trained in coaching by the leading institutions of personal and business coaching,
  • has been a successful business person in a variety of industries and environments,
  • has a track record of significant achievements in helping others not only in business, but in personal life achievement.
Over the years, Temple has consistently lived up to this defining standard.

What does a business coach do?

A coach is similar to a consultant, but with an important difference: while consulting provides temporary or intermittent solutions, coaching is a consistent, on-going relationship. The coach stays with the client to help implement new skills, handle life or business changes, and achieve goals.

Consulting is about dispensing advice: telling you what you should do. Business Coaching is about helping you discover solutions and carry them through.

Business Coaching is not therapy. Where therapy uses a pathology model to bring understanding and awareness of the past to a client, coaching assumes the client's wellness, and provides support and strategy to create a desirable future.

Coaching is action-based. A business coach is a person you turn to for non-biased advice on business decisions—someone with whom you can check in, to stay focused, to clarify your goals—and then achieve them. They are friends you can trust for advice on virtually any issue from personal challenges to family matters. Their role is to help you succeed at whatever business or personal milestone you set for yourself.

As a business coach, Temple is trained to work with you on the most important aspects of your life and business. He offers a different perspective because of the emotional distance of the professional relationship. He can help you

  • develop the skills,
  • acquire the resources,
  • identify the business opportunities and
  • overcome the challenges
that come with operating and growing a successful enterprise.

Via e-mail and the Internet, telephones and “virtual” meetings, you can be located anywhere in the world and still be supported in the critical success factors driving your personal and business aspirations.
