Could you imagine an AFL Club or A-League club without a coach? Sport understands the value of coaches and sporting teams have significantly increased the numbers of coaches they use over the past 10 years.
Businesses however have been slow to catch on. Who keeps you accountable, who clarifies your goals and actions and drives you to achieve the results……….?
Your accountant is naturally the person who should have the head coach role in your business as that person should know the numbers of the business and the desires of the owner more than anyone. Sadly it is not happening.
The assistant coaches should include people with expert skills in information technology, marketing, recruitment, HR, sales, negotiation, property, banking, legal, insurance as well as an industry expert in your craft to help with operations/productivity etc.
