Why all recruitment businesses need a business coach for growth.

If you’ve never had a Non Exec, a Business Coach, or a Mentor, but have been successful with your business so far you could ask why you would need one. I was in this position myself five years into growing my first business. My profits were excellent, staff retention was great and the office culture was fantastic. Why then would I need any help?  The answer can be as simple as “you’re good, but do you want to be even better?” Novak Djokovic is without doubt the best tennis player in the world and he has a coach, and appointing Boris Becker made him even better! With your natural talent, the training you’ve gained in your career up to now and general recruitment business experience, you’ll get so far but at some point you’ll hit a ceiling when your business growth will slow, stop, or worse still, start to go backwards.

I'm in the fortunate position to give you a very long list of real life examples of the benefits I’ve enjoyed from working with the Non Execs / Business Coaches I’ve appointed. They’ve helped me with the growth of my businesses, expanded my breadth of skills, and improved my vision on the future for me and my businesses and given belief and encouragement to think even bigger.  They’ve even helped me with my personal growth too; understanding the importance of the time you’re out of the business and how getting your work/life balance right not only benefits you and your family but really can help you perform better when you are in the business.

To become a recruitment business owner you do need to have confidence and a strong will, however these attributes can mean you are far more likely to turn help away. This may be because you don’t recognise the need for it, the arrogance a lot of great recruiters possess or subconsciously you want the world to see that all your success was purely down to you. I speak from personal experience, I had a bit of each of these, but don’t the smartest people hire people better than themselves? If I decide to work with a Business Coach and both myself and the business become even better for it, that was my decision so it’s still me who’s ultimately responsible for the success.
