Bill Gates believes that every business owner should have a — Business Facilitator or Coach

A Business Facilitator provides guidance, ideas, and accountability at every stage of a business lifecycle, from the initial set‐up, to managing growth, to overcoming the obstacles that will surely crop up along the way. Good coaching is as crucial to ongoing growth and success in sports and in business.

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) that were voted as being the best performers in a national survey by Glassdoor all had a Business Facilitator either working with the business owner or their staff.

“A good Facilitator can help you see what you’re missing and identify your blind spots.”- Michael Cooper

“You get help and guidance, you learn, you stretch, you grow, and you become willing to take actions that are seriously outside of your comfort zone.” – Michael Mapes

 “A Facilitator is one who contributes structure and process to interactions so individuals, teams or groups are able to function effectively and make high-quality decisions. They are a helper and enabler whose goal is to support others as they achieve exceptional performance.” Ingrid Bens
