The Best of Business Coaching London
London business coaching is not about telling you how to run your business – you already clearly know how to do that if you are running a successful business. No, this isn’t business consulting where we deliver you a recommendation and then leave you to it. This is business coaching – mentoring, training. This is about teaching you how to take your successful business and making it even better – up to that next level that you want to take it to. It’s about changing your reality.
With the London Coaching Group, you will get qualified business coaches in London with a wealth of experience working with medium and large businesses across sectors in the UK and abroad. That means we craft your sessions around what you and your business need and desire – and handpick the tools and strategies to achieve the growth you are aiming for. Growth that we guarantee. Yes, we’re that confident that our methods achieve results.
In London, business coaching has become prolific and business owners who are really serious about making the greatest impact with their businesses are understanding that the outside perspective is becoming essential to building the blocks of a business that is sustainable and profitable.
Business coaching is just as important as sports coaching – you wouldn’t see Cristiano Ronaldo taking to the field without a coach (or even multiple coaches in his case!) watching him carefully to see how he can improve and stay one of the best players. In the same way, business coaching is designed to help you ensure you are at the top of your game by using the best business strategies to achieve your goals.
The business services that The London Coaching Group are providing are becoming standard practice for any business that is seeking to move up to the next level because, well, it just makes sense.
Basically, having a business coach is not just useful, it’s a necessity in any serious business.

Why would I need a business coach?
Every truly great performer, whether an elite athlete, business ‘flyer,’ or performing superstar, is surrounded by coaches and advisors. As the pace in the world of business increases, and becomes more and more competitive, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with the changes in your industry, let alone the latest innovations in sales, marketing, and management strategies. Having a business coach is no longer a luxury… it has become a necessity.
On top of all this, it’s hard to get a truly objective answer from yourself. Clearly you can survive in business without the help of a coach, but it’s really difficult to thrive!
What is an alignment consultation?
This is where we start with every business owner-client. We’ll invest time together to learn as much as possible about your business, your goals, your challenges, your sales, your marketing, your finances, and much, much more.
All of this with 3 goals in mind: first is to get a ‘snapshot’ of where your business ‘is,’ right now. Second is to clarify your goals, both personally and in your business. And third, to get the crucial pieces of information needed to create your individualised coaching business plan for the future.
This is not a traditional business or marketing plan, rather it is a step-by-step plan that we will work with and through during your coaching program.
So... what is a coaching program?
Simply put, it’s where we will work with you to help you make your goals a reality.
From regular coaching calls and goal setting sessions, to creating marketing pieces together, you’ll develop new sales strategies and business systems so you can build sustainable growth for your business and release time for yourself. And, in a one-to-one environment, learn all you need to know to make your business dreams come true.
You are expected to dedicate a minimum of 5 hours a month to work on your sales, marketing, team-building, and business development initiatives, and every element of the coaching plan we developed from our Alignment Consultation.
We will do more than just show you what to do. We will be with you when you need us the most — as each idea takes shape, as each campaign is launched, when you need little pointers for making ‘it’ happen, when you need someone to talk to, when you’re faced with daunting challenges, and most importantly, when you’re just not sure what to do next. We will be there every step of the way.
How long is the program?
If you’ve been in business for more than a few months, you’ve seen at least one or two ‘quick fixes’ that sound great but are only immediate solutions…
We believe that long term success is not gained by just scraping the surface and then doing it for you… rather it means do it with you, showing you how to do it, working alongside you, and creating your success… together.
In the end it all depends on your business and your aspirations. While it can take up to three to five months before you start seeing some real impact from the work we do together, beyond that, team performance, your managment skills, and your business financial performance will only continue to increase month-by-month.
So in short — the program goes on for as long as you are becoming better, doing better, and getting better results.
Is the program contractual?
No. However, when you sign up to the program, the first six months are required to get over the initial hurdles, work through the problems from the past, and forge forward to start making a real impact.
Following that, there is a 1-month notice for both us. That is, if we think we are not well-matched, or you are not putting in sufficient effort, we will give you notice to wrap things up.
Equally, if you feel that coaching is not what you expected, you can inform your coach and we will use the final month to tie up any loose ends. We want you to enjoy this relationship and commit to the process of growth without feeling tied down.
How can I be sure this will work in my industry and in my business?
We are experienced in the areas of strategy, finance, sales, marketing, business development, business management, and team building. With literally hundreds of different profit-building strategies, you’ll soon see how truly powerful our systemised approaches are.
On the other hand, you are experienced in your business… and together we can apply our systems to make your business even more effective. Add to this the fact that at least one coach from our worldwide network will have either worked with, managed, worked in, or even owned a business that was the same or very similar to yours.
We have the full resources of the global coaching company to call upon for any and every challenge you might have.
Won't this just mean more work for me?
Clearly, when the initial plan is set up with us, it might seem like a great deal of work… but then, no one ever said attaining your goals would be easy.
In the first few months it’ll take some work to adjust, some effort to get over the ‘hump,’ so to speak, but the further you get into your plan, the less effort you’ll have to make. You will find yourself becoming more focused and getting more done —that’s the whole point.
With your focus, our coaching, and most importantly, our coaching systems, you’ll be achieving a great deal more with the same, or even less work.
But how will I find the time?
Again, the first few months will be the toughest — not because of extra work, but because of new tasks. Your coach will show you how, on a day-to-day basis, to get more done with less effort.
After those first few months you’ll find that you’re not working more, just differently. Then, depending, of course, on your goals, from about month 6 onwards, you’ll begin to see the results of all your efforts… and, if you choose, you can begin working less than ever before.
It’s important to remember, that it’s about changing what you do with your time —not putting in more of it.
How much will this cost?
Nothing… if you consider it from our perspective. That perspective is the difference between a cost and an investment. Everything you do with us is a true investment in your future
Not only will you begin to create great results in your business, but you’ll end up with both an entrepreneurial education, second to none. Not to mention the knowledge that you can repeat your business successes, over and over again in other ventures.
Will it cost me more to implement the strategies?
Give us just a half an hour and you’ll see how to turn your marketing effort into an investment that will yield sales and profits rather than just running up your expenses.
In most cases, we’ll actually save you money by exposing approaches that aren’t working for you. And yes, you’ll likely have to spend some money to make some.
When you follow our simple testing and measuring systems you’ll never again risk more than a comparatively few pounds on any one campaign. When we establish the ones that do work, we make sure you keep profiting from them, time, and time again.
Remember, if you use the traditional ‘accounting’ way of reducing costs, you will only ever add just a few percentage points to your bottom line.
Following our formula, you’ll soon appreciate that by driving sales, marketing, and income growth, your possible returns become exponential…
The sky’s the limit, as they say.
Are there any guarantees?
For most of our coaching programs, your investment will be restored or else we give you the money back.
That is, if all tasks are completed on time as agreed on a regular basis and your business does not generate a return on investment as a result of coaching in 6 months (or a duration we agree during our Alignment Consultation) is not equal to, or higher, than the investment you have made in business coaching, then we will pay you the differential to ensure that you only experience an upside to working with us.
Our business coaching strategies have been tested and proven all over the world. As long as you make the good-faith effort, do all the required work assigned to you, attend coaching sessions, events and workshops and complete your committed decisions and assignments by the agreed-upon dates — you will see your business improve.
We really are that confident in our system. We’ve seen it work; we know it can be done. All you need to do is get up and do it.
What results have other business owners had?
Our clients have consistently seen more profitability growth, more time released for themselves and a better team working on improved systems.
The results will speak for themselves, but take a look at our Impact Stories booklet and view the videos on our website for specific examples of our real clients, with real businesses, getting real results.
There are three fundamental reasons our approach will work for you in your business…
First, your coach will help you become 100% focused on your goals and the step-by-step processes to help you achieve them. This focus alone will have an extraordinary effect on both you and your business results.
Second, we will hold you accountable to get the things done you’ve committed to, not just for the day-to-day running of your business, but for the dynamic growth your business will experience. You’re investing in your success and we’re going to help you get there.
Third, we’re going to teach you, on a one-on-one basis, as many of the hundreds of profit and business building strategies and approaches as you need. So, whether your goal is to be making more money, or working fewer hours — or both — your goals can become a reality, and all within the next 12 months.
Again, just listen our videos and read the booklet to hear about the specific results other business owners just like you have achieved.
What areas will you coach me in?
We will work with you in 5 key areas, and the emphasis in each will depend on you, your business, and of course, your goals.
These key areas are:
Obviously, the backbone for creating a profitable business, and one area in which we’ll help you get spectacular results in.
Marketing and Advertising
If you want to make a sale, you’ve first got to find a prospect. During your program we will teach you amazingly simple, yet powerful, streetwise marketing techniques and approaches. Marketing that will drive profits. Team Building and Recruitment – You’ll never just wish to find the right people again. You can have motivated, passionate, enthusiastic, and loyal team members when we show you how.
Team Building and Recruitment
You’ll never just wish to find the right people again. You can have motivated, passionate, enthusiastic, and loyal team members when your coach shows you how.
Systems and Business Development
End the hopeless cycle of ‘the business running you’ and begin running your business. We will show you the secrets to having the business ‘work’… even when you’re not there.
You will learn how to deliver your product or service consistently, making it easy for your customers to buy, leaving them feeling delighted with your service. Also, we will teach you ways to incentivise your current customers to give you referrals and to ensure their repeat business. These are just two of the many strategies we will teach.
Can you train my people, too?
Yes, we can. We believe that providing training is as important as coaching you.
We can provide you with many different training modules, which include team-building, overcoming obstacles, managing change, sales made simple, telephone power, raving fans customer service training, and more.
It is amazing how much enthusiasm and commitment comes from your team with each of our training programs.
We can also provide testing and evaluation to help you gain perspective on opportunities for team development, hiring, discovering individual strengths, and more. We will discuss these with you, should they be required.
Can you write ads, letters, and marketing pieces for me?
Yes, your coach can do it for you, or we will train you to do it for yourself, or we can simply critique the marketing pieces you’re using right now
Should you want us to do it for you, for a low, one-time fee, you won’t get just one piece. Rather, we’ll design several for you to take to the market to test which one is the best performer
If it’s just a critique you’re after, for an even lower fixed fee we’ll work through your piece and offer feedback on, if required, what to change, how to change it and what else you should do.
Last, but not least, we can recommend a variety of books or resource materials which provide a ‘home study’ opportunity for you.
Why would you also recommend books, videos, etc.?
We do this to save you both time and money. You can learn the basics on your own time so that when we get together we’ll be working on the higher level implementations rather than the very basic ‘how to’s.’
This provides a very powerful way for you to speed up the coaching process and, as a result, achieve phenomenal rather than just ‘great’ outcomes.
When is the best time to get started?
Yesterday, of course! Seriously, right now! Today. This minute. Before you take another step, waste another pound, lose another sale, work too many more hours, miss another family event, or forget another special occasion.
Far too many business owners wait. Wait for the mystical, magical experience, the ‘laying on of hands’ that will transform them and their business to the “one” of their dreams. They believe the old saying about how working harder will make it all better.
Remember, what you know got you where you are… to get to where you want to go, you’ve got to make some changes and more than likely learn new things.
How do I get started?
Get back to us about setting up a discussion if you haven’t already.
There’s only very simple paperwork to complete and then you’ll be on your way. You’ll have to invest a few hours to get us familiar with your business. Together we’ll create a plan… and that’s when the ‘work’ starts. It may seem like a big job at the beginning, but with a coach, you’re sharing the load… and together we’ll accomplish great things.
