Hello, welcome to the business breakthrough radio show. I’m so excited to share with you today. Over the past 2 decades of studying business owners from all over the world I have found ONE simple key that ensures success. This is not a complex principle and it is a principle that has stood the test of thousands of years. It is a word that accompanies every person of high success. It is a word that is not fun but yet it inspires us. Any idea of what it is? It is the word “coachability”. Now you might ask WHY I would choose that word. I know, I know you think I’m biased because I’m in the top 3% of coaches in the world. Haha, but no, that’s not why.
Coachability has requirements of us. It requires awareness. It requires acknowledging when we are wrong. It requires drive and fight. It requires learning. It requires action. It requires accountability. Do you know how to ensure absolute failure in your business and life? It’s quite simple, don’t be coachable. So if you are the type of person who has it all figured out, then please don’t join us. If you are not coachable, you aren’t invited to this podcast. If you aren’t willing to put in the hard work then please don’t listen.
So the reason we are starting this podcast here at Higher Impact is to help you know what you don’t know. One of the first elements of our coaching process is creating awareness. Once you know it, you can begin to change it right?
It reminds me of a story of a ship owner who’s engine wouldn’t run on his ship. He called in every expert and no one could figure out how to fix the ship. They had given up all hope, but one of his crew members remembered an old retired repairman who used to work on the ship. They searched everywhere and finally found him and convinced him to come to the ship. He went into the engine room with a small little tote stuffed with tools in every pocket imaginable. The owner of the ship was standing there as the repairman inspected the ship. After several minutes of inspecting the ship he turned to the ship owner and said dryly, “I can fix your ship”. The owner was ecstatic. He said, “how much will it cost?!” The repairman said $10,000. The ship owner knew the value of his ship and the money he was losing each day his ship was grounded. So he reluctantly agreed to pay it. The repairman dug in his tools and found a ball peen hammer. He went over to a spot on the engine block and gave it three small taps. And miraculously the engine started! The owner was dumbfounded but struggled because of how quickly the ship was fixed. He said to the repairman “why should I pay you $10,000 to just tap on my engine. Please give me an itemized receipt for this.” The old repairman took out a small pad of paper and wrote on it:
The moral of this story is that we can have action on many things. We can work hard all day long. But knowing WHERE to focus is 99% of the battle. This is why coaching has a 400% return on investment. Because you don’t know what you don’t know.
So what are your greatest challenges that are holding you back right now? Do you know where to tap the hammer to get the greatest results in your business? In your life? In your time? With your money? With your staff? With your family?

Your time management is crucial to the success of your life and business. If you had more time, what would you do more of? If you had more energy, how much more could you get done in a day? We teach you how to manage your time and energy in such a way that you can gain as much as 40% of your time back into your life. What kind of difference would that make for you? If you need more time, reach out to us for a free consult.
If you could increase the productivity of your employees by as much as 40% would it change your profitability as a company? Engaged and happy employees are a crucial part of your company but most often employers don’t look at the financial impact this has on their organization. A healthy team makes a world of difference for you in your organization. If you have high turnover, internal bickering or clients who are complaining, call in a coach to assist with your employee engagement.
True leaders are hard to find in this day and age. Could your leaders be better at leading? Do you ever have communication breakdown within your organization? We work with the business leaders, management and influencers inside your company. We help inspire them to live true leadership in work and home. If you have turnover in your company, or if you have fighting and bickering amongst your employees, pull in a coach to help uncover the problem and create positive relationships inside your company.
Sales results are the fastest way to turn around cash flow in your life and in your business. Too often sales people don’t know the key behaviors that they need to track in order to create the success they are after. There are two key areas that are crucial to sales success.
True sales results create more time and freedom in your life. As you track your sales behaviors, you will see momentum and your productivity increase. As your productivity ur pipeline will fill up.
Most business owners don’t know where their marketing dollars go. They don’t track the numbers. Sometimes it’s because they don’t have time, sometimes they just don’t know which numbers are crucial for their marketing success. We build a tool that contains the marketing metrics that are crucial for you and we track the results. After we have begun to track our results, we modify our strategies and tactics to match what marketing vehicles are the most successful. Your marketing should generate business for you. Through coaching, focus groups, customer surveys and employee questionnaires, we can assess where your brand is, where it should be compared to your competitors and your plan of action to get there.
What is that one thing keeping you from going to the next level in your life? Do you know what it is? Most people don’t. They have tunnel vision. They don’t have clarity of the big picture. They don’t know what their life calling is. They know they want to leave a legacy that spans many decades of time, but they don’t know what they could do that would actually achieve this. All of these things keep us from our true destiny. In life coaching we look at the behavioral, emotional, mental and physical elements that are keeping you from going to the next level. We help you see your greatest faults, your biggest strengths and how you can leverage them to create momentum. Life coaching can create massive change in short periods of time and can sustain it through ongoing accountability.

What is truly holding your business back from going to the next level? Is it you? Is it your sales? Your processes? Your team? Your cash flow or profit?
Business Coaching helps you look at five key aspects of your business:
Business coaches know the questions to ask to find the metrics that are important to you. They can help you find risks. They help you see problems. They know how to take a business to the next level. They can help you find how you are getting in the way of your own business. They help you see what you don’t know even when you don’t know it. They see the common patterns that we all make in our businesses. Not only are they aware of the greatest things holding you back, they know how to create action that will create lasting and sustainable results.
A good business coach should be able to pay for themselves within 6 months of you hiring them.
