3 incredible business benefits of team coaching

Happy people at work stand in circle and raise their hands

Richard Branson, one of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs, once said, “Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the client”.

If you’re a financial planner, this might strike a chord.

As a service-based profession, the success or failure of your business relies on its people and how well they work together towards the company’s vision.

Yet, a surprising number of business owners overlook this fact.

Perhaps you’ve recruited an awesome group of professionals who know their stuff. If so, that’s great! But it’s only the first step towards shaping and growing the business of your dreams.

Read on to discover three impressive ways team coaching could turbocharge your team and take your business to the next level.

1. Everyone in the team feels heard and employee engagement soars

Running regular team coaching sessions is a great way to create a safe space where people can speak openly about the business.

That includes talking through any problems that may arise as well as celebrating the wins.

Creating a culture of transparency and honesty could help your employees feel heard and valued.

This is crucial for employee engagement. Research published by Forbes has revealed that highly engaged employees are three times more likely to say they feel heard in the workplace than highly disengaged colleagues.

So, if you want your employees to feel invested in the business and unified in their mission to create a better business, team coaching could be just what you’re looking for.

2. The business has a clear mission, and everyone is pulling in the same direction

Once you’ve established a forum of open communication where everyone feels comfortable contributing and discussing ideas, the scene is set for truly collaborative working.

By pooling your ideas as a team, you could create a killer business mission and a set of values that are meaningful to everyone.

As the author and inspirational speaker Simon Sinek advised, “Start with the why”. In other words, inspire your people by giving them a sense of purpose.

A solid grasp of your business values and mission could fuel your team to push boundaries and rocket past their goals.

When everyone knows where the business is heading and feels a valued part of the journey, you’re on your way to achieving amazing things!

3. Retaining and recruiting the best people becomes a breeze

Having a clearly defined mission and strong set of values can be astonishingly powerful. You might be surprised at the ripple effect it can have throughout your business.

For example, knowing where you want to take your business and what you need from your team to achieve this could drive your retention and recruitment strategies – from how you attract top talent to how you incentivise your existing employees.

What’s more, communicating your purpose and values during the recruitment process could help you attract candidates who will help the business grow.

Similarly, for your existing employees, tying personal targets to the wider company mission could make them feel part of the business and boost motivation.

Once you have a clear mission, everything will map back to this.
