Coaching is Your Key To Success

Optimize Your Performance with Coaching

Couples/Partners/Copreneurs:

Every couple should consider coaching when starting a business together. While the rewards of running a business with your partner can be tremendous, there are many potential pitfalls that can undermine the success of both your business and personal life.

Pamela Beaudet is a certified life coach who specializes in coaching small business owners, and partners/couples, in particular. She encourages you to contact her for a complimentary exploratory session.

Along with all of the usual stress that comes with building and maintaining a successful business, copreneurs have the added challenge of working together and keeping your relationship intact. Sometimes you need help navigating each other’s personalities and work styles. Pamela will work with you to create a partnership that blends your talents while keeping you focused on a common goal: the success of your business.

In addition to being a certified coach, Pamela Beaudet also holds a Master’s Degree in Communication and feels that learning how to communicate with your partner is an essential, and often overlooked, part of running a successful business.

Together with your partner, you can learn to:

  • Identify your individual strengths so that you are both working on what you do best
  • Define your roles clearly
  • Avoid unwittingly working against each other
  • Understand and accept that a business partnership is not always a 50/50 proposition
  • Recognize the line between your business and personal relationship, and take time for both
  • Deliver supportive and constructive feedback in a manner that suits your partner, rather than criticizing
  • Present a united front to your employees to avoid delivering mixed messages
  • Communicate, communicate, communicate!

Small Business Owners/Solopreneurs:

Do you ever feel like you’re alone with your ideas and you don’t know how to manifest them in order to move your business forward? Do you ever feel as though your employees don’t ‘get’ you? Are you challenged by what to keep on your plate and what to delegate to others- or maybe a little concerned about delegating at all? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then coaching may be just right for you.

Today, you need to run your business more efficiently than ever. Your ability to communicate clearly with your customers and employees is crucial. The main reason that many of us don’t get what we want is that we don’t know how to ask for it. When it comes right down to it, we aren’t being clear. Whether closing a sale, delegating a task, conveying needs, or setting the rules and policies, clarity is key.

Pamela will work with you to define what you want your personal and professional life to look like and help you to map out a plan to get there. She holds your agenda and then holds you accountable to take the necessary steps to accomplish all your goals.

Pamela has found that even though each client comes to her with their own unique challenges and agendas, there are some common benefits that they’ve gotten through her coaching process.

When you partner with Pamela, you can expect to:

  • Discover your strengths and lead with them
  • Prioritize your goals and stay focused
  • Determine the best path to get what you want and how to get there
  • Wipe out distractions that aren’t contributing to your goals
  • Take action to create clarity
  • Pick yourself up quickly and move on when you misstep

When you work with Pamela, you’ll quickly realize that action creates clarity, so even doing the ‘wrong’ thing can lead to success. She believes that when you lead with your strengths and values, you hold the key to success and she’ll be there with you every step of the way, helping you to achieve more than you ever thought possible.

Pamela, you are so right what you say about “clarity.” Thank you for reminding me about this – it is where I have sometimes fallen short when trying to clinch a deal. I will take your advice.
I must say I am very impressed by the clarity of your website and what you are trying to do to help others. No one can go it alone – we all need each other’s help.
All the best
Pauline

Hi Pauline-
I’m so glad that you like my new site. I worked with Power Blog Service. They actually designed the site and they make it very easy for me to blog on a regular basis, knowing that I’m set up to be found by the search engines.
I can’t overemphasize the importance of being clear in your communications. When we fail to clinch a deal, it’s often because we don’t actually ask for the business. I do an initial complimentary session with potential clients and I used to end the conversation on a tentative note. Now, if I feel that we’re a good fit, I tell the person that I’d like to work with them and ask what the next step is. I’m never pushy- I’m just clear so that the other person knows where I stand. My clarity makes it easier for them to make a decision.
Thanks again for your post. I hope you’ll visit again!
Best,
Pamela

Hi Pamela!

I am contacting you because my husband and I began a new business venture together, and though we have been working together for 3 years, we are finding it difficult to own and operate a business together. We seem to have the same vision, but executing and communicating the same information to our employees is becoming a shortcoming that is hard to resolve.

We are based out of central Florida and willing to do whatever it takes. Our marriage means more to us than anything, and we believe we have someting special to offer as copreneurs and would like to see this venture through.

Hi Savannah-
You obviously understand and appreciate that good communication is crucial to the success of your business and that’s the first step to overcoming your challenge. The fact that you share the same vision is great. I’m going to contact you privately and we can discuss the possibility of working together to help you better manage the execution of Third Wheel Apparel.
Best Regards,
Pamela
