Brief Business Coaching is different from Life Change Coaching in that it is problem specific and related to business, work or career. Sometimes we have so much riding on the decisions we make that it has become hard to be unemotional about those decisions.
In this form, coaching could be tax deductible but you would need to check that with your accountant or tax agent in the area where you live.
Brief Business Coaching is for all levels of people in the workplace. It is based on decision-making processes and situational or problem analysis. We all, from time to time, have to make decisions in the workplace that may have large ramifications in our careers and on the lives of other people. It helps to have a third, dispassionate eye to assist in making the best decisions on which you can rely on in the future.
In business, you need to focus your mind and be an excellent problem solver, as well as have the ability to project outcomes ahead of time.

Examples of Brief Business Coaching
Terry had been at university for several years and gained a Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree in Business Studies. While his grades were reasonable he had not achieved the outstanding marks he had wished for. He had been for three job interviews, two of which were the positions he wanted and one at a bank he wanted to work for but with a lesser position than he would have liked. He came into coaching to decide what position to advance his career best.
Margo was the managing director of a large cosmetics company. She started with her original company and then acquired a large share in a smaller company. The remaining shareholders in the second company turned out to be dead weights who did not pull their weigh and cost her profits to the extent that it was a drain on her original company. Her accountant advised her to close the second company and make large redundancies but she felt that was against her long-term plans. She came into coaching to work through her options.
Phillip was a banker who was about to retire when he was offered a job with a pay cheque that was triple what he currently earned. At 56 his wife was against him continuing to work. He, on the other hand, could see that the extra money he would earn over the next five years would allow them to retire with the kind of lifestyle where he would never have to worry about income again. He and his wife came into coaching to make their decision together.
Coaching is done either in person (Sydney, Australia), by telephone or Skype.
