MBA1835 Q&A Wednesday: I’ve hired several coaches, but no improvements. What’s wrong with me?

Does coaching really work?

It’s Q&A Wednesday! We’ve got a listener who’s an experienced entrepreneur, but looking to get to the next level. They’ve tried coaches before — more than once. Each time, our listener feels like they’ve wasted their time and money. 

The question is…why?

Today, we discuss what makes coaching work, and what makes it fail. We’ll explain what you need to do on your end to get the best ROI from a coach, plus how to make sure your coach is the right fit for you. 

Fortunately, our host Omar’s had coaches before — both good and not-so-good.

With so many coaches out there, it can feel impossible to figure out who’s the real deal. Tune in, learn a few strategies, and find the coach that can take you where you need to be. Click Play!
