Business & Entrepreneurial Coaching

Business & Entrepreneurial CoachingWith a Senior Management corporate background, Shaman Jonathan Hartman has worked alongside a large number of corporates to help them understand the psychology of their business and people and effectively roll out strategies designed to help those organizations grow going into the future.

Understanding your business

At the heart of understanding how your business operates is the psychology of the different kinds of people that you will find in your business environment.

The Entrepreneur

This go-getter is the driving force behind the business's presence, initiating deals and sales, generating ideas, starting projects.... and then running off to focus on the next exciting, people-focused aspect of the business. However, the projects and deals the Entrepreneur has initiated need to be managed. So step in...

The Manager

Picking up where the Entrepreneur left off, the Manager's role is to coordinate and manage the day-to-day realities and tasks involved in the project, ensuring that the dream becomes, and remains, a profitable reality. But no man is an island, and every Chief needs Indians to do most of the running around.

The Technician

Your lowest-level employees, the Technician is responsible for carrying out the day-to-day tasks assigned by the Manager.

The combined team

When you have all three these levels in place, your business will operate profitably, with new deals and opportunities being generated by the Entrepreneur, ensuring a constant stream of business that the Manger and Technicians can roll out and manage.

Most businesses however have an imbalance in these levels. Small businesses for example are often heavily driven by the Entrepreneur who, due to lack of funds or competent staff, feels the need to do everything him or herself. This quickly leads to burnout because it's impossible to spend eight hours a day on the road and in meetings and then come home and do another full eight hours of work.

Likewise in larger corporate environments, you may have a lack of entrepreneurial spirit, which leads to a lack of initiative, stagnancy and eventually will crimp your new business flow, if only because your competitors are doing a better job than you and introducing new products.

Another common imbalance in corporate environments is too many Chiefs and not enough Indians, with no one taking responsibility for doing the actual work that needs to be done to generate cashflow and income.

What can you expect from business coaching with Shaman Jonathan?

The initial stage of the Business Coaching will involve a meeting, or series of meetings, with Senior Management.

Shaman Jonathan will spend time with you, understanding your concerns and the challenges you are facing, as well what you'd like to achieve going forward.

Stage two of the process involves a diagnostic and research gathering procedure to determine the psychology of your people and how your team is split up among Entrepreneurs, Managers and Technicians.

A tailored plan and strategy to help your business grow its bottom line

From here, Shaman Jonathan will determine a coaching plan of attack to roll out in your business. The duration and complexity of this strategy will be determined by the client's needs and the size of the organization. 

This strategy will help you to address the imbalances of staff in your business, growing harmony and cooperation, and restructuring the business in a way that orientates it towards the area you need to be more focused on, e.g. bringing in new business or even slowing that down so you can focus on the business you already have.

Modalities for rolling out change include:

  • One-on-one coaching and mentoring sessions
  • Group coaching and mentoring sessions
  • Workshops to create awareness among the staff of their and others' psychologies, eg. understanding that when the Entrepreneur blurts an idea out it's not meant as rude, it's just because he or she is a creative and impulsive mind
  • Team building events
  • Meditation practice

Additionally, for those of you that are spiritually inclined and would like to incorporate spiritual practice into your business, Shaman Jonathan can offer a range of spiritual tools as well:

Importantly, Shaman Jonathan is always cognizant of the religious beliefs of others, and is happy to structure all the modalities in a way that does not offend anyone's sensibilities or cross the boundaries of their belief system. Click here to read more about how we will honor your religious beliefs.

In terms of hiring new staff that will meet the demands of your company culture, the coaching process will leave you empowered with a clear understanding of the kinds of people you need to introduce into your organization, and tools and question sets to help you identify them during the recruitment process.
