Cancer Kills One Cell At A Time

Trump You are firedCancer kills you one cell at a time, so does a toxic employee. This is a friendly reminder that if you have a bushel full of apples and you place one bad apple in it – the whole bushel goes bad, not the other way around.

Whenever you have a ‘problem’ employee you need to pull the plug as soon as possible.

I say this because as the new financial year starts, you need to think of new beginnings.

New year, new destiny.

Sometimes tough decisions need to be made. Rewards go to those business people who are brave and courageous to stick to their vision, plans and goals.

If you have a contrary, toxic employee – you know it.

The question is “What are you going to do about it?”

Mentor or Motivator?

Dr Marc Dussault - Mentor Or MotivatorOne of the many questions I get when I introduce myself as The Exponential Growth Strategist is “So does that mean you’re a motivational speaker or guru?

That’s when I realise a lot of people don’t know the difference between what I am, a mentor versus a motivator.

Warning Signs To Look For When Hiring A Business Coach

Coaches are everywhere these days. Coaching is a recognized discipline used by many professionals.  However, as a distinct career it is relatively new and there are no set regulations.  Government bodies have not found it necessary to provide a regulatory standard for coaching and do not govern the education or training for the coaching industry.

Australia has no industry group or association of business coaches and no accreditation is required. You simply set yourself up as a business coach and let your work speak for itself.

Deciding to hire a business coach is a big decision. One that could mean the difference between brilliant success and utter failure. If you don’t know what you’re looking for and the qualities you need in a coach, you may end up wasting a LOT of time – and money – and end up no further ahead than you were when you started.

Life coaches are not therapists, nor consultants, therefore psychological interaction and business analysis are outside of the scope of their ability.  Some critics claim that life coaching is similar to psychotherapy, without restrictions, oversight or regulation.

So hiring a coach sounds simple enough, but you may need coaching yourself just to learn how to get the most out of a coach!  The key to success is understanding that you are largely responsible for keeping your coaching experience on track and on target.

The coaching industry is very crowded. You need to identify the right one for you. A professional who can deliver quality coaching services.  Anyone can claim to be a “business coach,” but only the top small-business coaches have skills, abilities and aptitudes and personal characteristics that make them stand out and worthy of consideration.

Here are some of the warning signs to look for when selecting a business coach:
