What is entrepreneur coaching?
Entrepreneurial Coaching helps business owners develop as leaders and learn how to bring others along on their business journey.
Our Entrepreneurial Coaches act as sounding boards for new ideas or business challenges and help you find the solution within yourself.
They will provide advice on developing key leaderships skills and behaviours as well as critical competencies such as communication, influence and emotional intelligence that hold the key to an effective leadership style.
You will also learn how to get the most out of your team as it develops and expands over time.
Why might you need coaching as an entrepreneur?
All business leaders can benefit from focusing on their own personal and professional development and entrepreneurs are no exception. Indeed, there is a risk that entrepreneurs become preoccupied by the pressures of sustaining and growing a business and don’t give sufficient time to their own development and that of the people around them.
An Entrepreneurial Coach is on hand to guide you through the challenges of growing your own business and support you in developing core skills and behaviours such as communication, time management, leadership and focus.
How can AGP help?
We work with entrepreneurs to develop strategies for navigating the challenges of business ownership.We develop tailored programmes that identify individual strengths and target key areas for development.
Self-learning is at the heart of our approach. We work within a framework that helps you achieve the self-awareness, confidence and adaptability that empowers you to excel as a leader, make better decisions, improve communication and enjoy stronger working relationships with colleagues and clients.
Our aim is to provide you with tools and techniques that can sustain effective behaviours and high levels of performance long after the need for coaching has ended.
Our clients trust us to find the right person at the first time of asking
I would recommend Tony in a heartbeat.
Tony has a wide network across the UK retail market and knows what’s going on across sectors. Tony is able to match his clients to candidates in smart partnerships with close consideration of cultural fit, which is very rare in my experience.
As a candidate, Tony always kept me updated on the progress of any project and then remained in touch throughout the assignment, providing valuable executive support and advice.
I am always grateful that Tony picks up the phone to me frequently with such interesting opportunities
Following a change in career direction, I was fortunate enough to work with Tony in some 1:1 coaching sessions. Tony’s style of coaching is excellent – he builds rapport easily and asks probing, perceptive questions that enabled me to clarify my thought processes.
His challenging but empathetic style really delivered for me. He encouraged me to self-reflect and recognise my underlying concerns. Once I had this clarity, he really helped me to identify and evaluate potential options and alternatives.
I came away from our coaching sessions with real insight into my concerns and a clear action plan to make the positive changes I needed.
I have known Tony for some time both as a client and candidate and he never fails to impress. He quickly and efficiently understands the brief and then delivers strong candidates who have the necessary skills and expertise.
Tony invests time in both his clients and his candidates even when there is nothing specific to discuss. This is what makes him a great search specialist: he is approachable, engaging, warm and incredibly well-networked.
