Business coaching programmes that match the current state & ambition of each of your clients...

From years of experience coaching SMEs and learning directly from some of the leading business advisors, the founders of UK Growth Coach have developed a couple of foundation models from which all of the programmes are derived.

The first of these is ‘The Progress Mountain’’ model. It seeks to identify where the business is at now, and the step needed to reach the next level. 

The higher the progress, the better the results – from merely replacing a job, to generating wealth within the business, to creating a company that is attractive to investors.

These progress steps have unique symptoms and challenges, and the programmes we offer to clients are designed to address the right issue at the right time and be progressive.

This is the foundation to become a small business coach with UK Growth Coach!

"Once I saw what UK Growth Coach could provide, it was that missing piece of the jigsaw for me in order to make this vision a reality."

Coaching services to become a small business coach

1-2-1 small business coaching

This type of service forms the bulk of the coaching services available if you become a small business coach with us, and can be delivered face-to-face and/or online. 

There are four distinct programmes available based on the stage the client is at on The Progress Mountain. There are common elements across each of these 1-2-1 programmes, including what we refer to as a North Star Meeting, Short-Haul Planning and Long-Haul Planning. You can watch videos explaining how these work further on the links above.

The Basics Programme: supporting startups to turn into functional businesses

The Basics Programme is for business owners who have an idea of a business but are not sure of the right approach, tools, systems or ways of doing things. In order to avoid costly and time consuming, trial and error, they can work with a business coach franchisee at UK Growth Coach.

This will give them education and guidance in how to run, operate and establish a viable business. Something very few business owners ever receive! This helps ensure that each of the 10-points of the Coaching Star (the 10 fundamental points to business success) are developed into a consistent approach.

Growth Programme: growing and scaling a business

You would take the 10-points of the Coaching Star and explore how to make elements work better and more efficiently to deliver better outcomes. You would typically focus on systemisation, processes, roles within the company and delegation, as well as sales and marketing among other things.

Independence Programme: not reliant on the business owner in order to be profitable and growing

This is not to suggest that the business owner becomes redundant, rather focusing on which roles and activities they should and shouldn’t be doing!

If their business is solely reliant on them for x activity, it presents a point of failure, as well as stress and inability to take a break from the business. In this programme you will work as a small business coach to identify and reduce these points of reliance.

Independence is achieved when the business owner can choose to work or not, and their attendance is not what dictates the business’ performance.

Exit Programme: for sale or succession

Becoming a small business coach means being prepared for the myriad of ambitions your clients may have, and this is exhibited perfectly in the Exit Programme.

Some may want to create a valuable asset in their business to retire or invest elsewhere, others will want to be able to hand over the business to others through succession planning or a management buy-out, and some might want to stay partially involved on specific terms.

During this programme you work with the business owner to prepare them and their business for this change.
