Coaching for success across the Business Life Cycle

Businesses of all shapes and sizes, forms and functions go through various stages of the business life cycle as they strive to succeed. Each stage has unique challenges, pressures and opportunities. The focus, resources and activities of the business need to change to suit the current life cycle stage; strategies and tactics that work in one stage will not be effective in another stage.

Success is the result of a well-managed business across all stages of the life cycle. Which stage is in my business in?

Business coaching for a business in maturity stage

One-to-one coaching with an experienced, accountable mentor.

A mature business is not (necessarily) a stale one – but stagnating it is a big risk to keep an eye on. If you believe your business could do more, be more and achieve more, then our business coaching can help.

Our experienced coaches can accurately identify what’s blocking you and your business from achieving greatness. A customised action plan maps out exactly what needs to be done to get you where you want to be.

That’s worth repeating: PROVEN strategies that deliver REAL results.

Business coaching for a business in harvest/exit stage

All the coaches at Tenfold Business Coaching have owned their own business and sold them for a profit, so they have first-hand, real world knowledge of the process (and how to limit the stress).

Business coaching can help you consider the many different options in the harvest/exit stage of the business life cycle. You may be looking to scale back your day-to-day involvement in the business while still retaining ownership and an income stream. You could be considering harvesting your investment in the business you’ve built up by selling to a third party. Many family-run businesses benefit from coaching as the business transitions from the parents to the next generation.  Whichever option is right for you, the most important aspect is valuing the business and ensuring that you capitalise on the years of effort and money you invested in your asset. An experienced business coach to guide you through the process and acts in your best interest could be your second-best asset.

In addition to our ongoing business mentoring programs, more coaching options that can deliver targeted results include:
