How to Choose a Business Coaching Franchise

Everybody wants to be on the winning team. To build and grow your coaching business into a winning one, be discerning about the company you keep. There are many business coaching franchises out there but because the industry is not regulated, you need to be careful about which one you buy into.  The best business coaches are visible, they are great thought leaders and excellent communicators. They are also savvy and know how to utilise the media, fully understand the power of marketing and social media and have success stories to tell. Importantly, they have built their reputations and credibility on strong values and walking their talk.
These are the types of business coaches with whom you want to be associated. Carefully choosing the company you keep is crucial when you are buying into a business coaching franchise. So how do you choose a business coaching franchise in which to invest? Firstly, you should create a list of your expectations. Know what you want, what you stand for and the type of coach you want to be to your clients. What do you expect from your franchisor in terms of support and training? What values are important to you? Where do you expect your business to be a year from now and in fives years? Secondly do your research on the different business coaching franchises. You have to ensure that the franchise you choose fits your agenda and that you fit theirs. You cannot grow as a business coach or as a franchisee if your values are at loggerheads with those of the franchisor or the rest of the coaches in your network. Look carefully at what they are saying.
