Business Coach for Therapists
Our business is helping you. Our success is tied to how well we can help you succeed.
Helping You Grow to the Next Level
As a therapist, you are committed to helping your clients help themselves. With empathy, compassion, knowledge, and skill, you work with them to overcome challenges and unearth potential. What about challenges you face as a business person? What about the potential that you want to unlock in order to grow your practice and realize enhanced results? An experienced business coach for therapists works with many of the same tools as you do: empathy, compassion, knowledge, and skill. AMB Performance Group is committed to helping therapists help themselves achieve the goals and objectives that are most important to them.
Business Coach for Therapists
What are your goals? Whether it is to increase your client base, bring on a team of therapists, start another business, write a book, or secure speaking engagements, you have the motivation, drive, and determination to make it happen. What you may be lacking is the “how to.” How do you accomplish these objectives? Where do you start? What’s next?
An experienced business coach for therapists can provide the know-how, as well as the insights and depths of understanding you need to be successful in your chosen endeavors.
What are some business coach “green flags” to look for as you search for a professional to help you take your practice, and career, to the next level?
Experience In Your Field
Imagine a football coach who never played a down or a track coach who never sprinted towards the finish line. Yes, coaching involves a different skill set, and effective coaches do not have to be elite-level athletes. Coaching, however, requires a solid foundation of first-hand experience. A coach who only coaches, in other words, is unlikely to deliver the insights you need to grow. Look for a professional who has worked in your field in some capacity. While there are certainly benefits to having someone outside the therapy world advise you, there are unique challenges and opportunities that must be addressed directly for best results.
On the other side of the same coin, it is essential that a business coach for therapists also have experience in coaching specifically. As mentioned, it requires a different skill set than that acquired by practicing in the field itself. Do they have the tools to help you advance, grow, develop, and achieve your goals?
Skipping the Jargon
Business coaching is grounded in researched best practices; it is not a collection of catch-phrases. Whether it’s telling you that you need to “live on the edge,” “push past discomfort/pain,” “hustle harder,” or whatever they imagine would look good on a poster, some “coaches” simply trot out tired platitudes and rely on jargon. As a trained therapist, you will see through this.
An effective coach will help you evaluate and utilize your skills and competencies in order to grow as a professional and as a business, while developing additional capacity to tackle even bigger goals.
By the same token, watch out for dated approaches to business coaching. Again, it is easy to pass off “good tips” as original or intuitive. Don’t accept, or settle for, advice you could just as easily get with a Google search. The point of engaging with a coach is to get personalized, customized, and targeted guidance. Your coach should be practicing up-to-date, effective methods.
No reputable business coach will promise unrealistic outcomes. You may see those claiming you can make $X in Y days or hit seven figures by a certain quarter. No. As you know through your role as a therapist, you cannot guarantee or promise specific outcomes. While monetary gain is a metric of success, it is not the whole equation. Beware of anyone making claims that are simply too good to be true. You need to put in the work!

Do you need a business coach?A
In the end, only you can answer that, but here are some things to ask yourself when considering the decision. Are you feeling stuck, indecisive, or without good sources of advice? Are you nervous that you’ll take the wrong step when trying to bring your company to the next level? Would you value an outside unbiased point of view? Do you feel yourself getting sucked into an unchallenging routine of comfort? Are you seeking accountability? Would your business benefit from your expanded network? Do you know your weaknesses? If so, are you actively doing something to combat them? Are you looking for clarity? Are you a small business? Medium business? If any or all of those sound like you, then it’s worth looking into. Not saying you must need a business coach if you answered yes, but it’s worth having some initial conversations.
Ask yourself this question, why do the most elite athletes in the world have a coach? Because no matter where you are, having someone looking in can always make you better.
What questions should I ask a prospective business coach?A
- How much experience do you have?
- What is your vision of success for a client?
- What are your top three values?
- Do you have plans that will fit my needs?
- What timeline do you think I’m looking at in terms of what I want to achieve?
- What certifications do you have?
- Why are you a business coach?
- What separates you from other business coaches?
- What is your preferred method of communication?
- What are some of your previous results?
How do you find the right online business coach for you?A
As in many industries, there are (unfortunately) a lot of people out there who call themselves business coaches, build a website and attract clients, all without having gone through real training or ever building any kind of business themselves beforehand. So, what should you look for in a business coach? Well, you should look for proof of tangible results. Statistics from other businesses that the coach has worked with. In some cases, it may be worth looking into the industries that the coach’s past or current clients are in. Client testimonials are a good starting point when considering an online business coach. And ask around your network. Does anyone you know work with a business coach? What have they said about their experience? This could be telling one way or another. But the coach who is right or wrong for one person may be the inverse for you. So, to go further, you want to ask the right questions of a prospective business coach when having the initial phone call or meeting. Ask about results and methodology and past industry experience, but make sure they are asking the right questions of you as well. Then what it will come down to is personal fit. Is this someone you would be excited to partner with? If you’ve checked all of those boxes, then you’ll have your answer.
