Because, the moment you chose to start a small business, you unwittingly chose to play a significantly larger game than any game you had ever played before.
Being an entrepreneur is a challenging and often a lonely journey. For decades now, successful business Leaders and sports professionals have hired coaches to drive business results. Entrepreneurs are fast realizing that having a coach or a mentor helps navigate this amazing journey of learning, growing, failing and moving on.
Whether you are an experienced entrepreneur or expect to make the transition soon, you will realize that being an entrepreneur means you wear many hats: marketing, business development, finance, operations and the role that entrepreneurs dread the most: managing a growing team.
This experience can be overwhelming. It often is. Having run our own businesses and worked closely with hundreds of entrepreneurs in the past, we understand your challenges. Coaching will help you connect to and focus on the things that matter – the strategic levers and stay grounded in your values, this helping you and your business reach its full potential.
Business Coaching is the process of working with a qualified professional in a safe, structured environment to explore avenues for business and leadership growth. The outcome of an effective business coaching relationship is a successful business.
Our Business Coaching Program is a 10 months intensive coaching program that helps you clarify a sustainable, scalable, profitable business model. Over the course of the program, you will work with trained, certified experienced business coaches to execute your business growth through regular one-on-one intensive coaching sessions. The coach and entrepreneur “meet” once or twice a month in person or on skype.
During the first session, you and your coach will work together to clarify your focus for the coaching and set goals.
- Greater clarity on your business direction
- increased clarity on your customer needs and therefore your value proposition
- improved communication with all stakeholders
- Increased alignment with your life purpose and therefore find more meaning in life and work
- Identify your bottlenecks in growing your business and remove them
- Identify and develop habits that drive performance
- Greater focus on the important things
Neeru is very good at showing different perspectives to the situation or the issue at hand. When I am so busy and overwhelmed by the various tasks of starting up a business and feeling stuck at a particular issue, she helps me see alternative solutions or new ways of tackling it. Both her business experience and coaching skill take part in this greatly supportive mission. Neeru also does her best in sharing relevant contacts and advocating my work outside our coaching session. I consider her a reliable advisor to my new business.
Coaching not only helped me focus on what matters. It helped me focus on what matters in the way that was most effective for my personally.
I met Neeru two days before our Hult Prize project deadline; and in those two days she challenged, provoked, and showed different perspectives that totally transformed the model we where working on. This finally enabled us to find the missing links. She has great knowledge and understanding in many matters because of her experience. In addition, instead of giving out solutions, she helps you in finding them yourself with simple guidance and by asking challenging questions. I would definitely work with her again on future projects.
Neeru’s contribution has been pivotal not only to C3 programs design and development but also to several C3 entrepreneurs. She is an amazingly effective coach as well as a serial entrepreneur. She combines both experiences and translates it in actionable and constructive guidance to challenge entrepreneurs. Under her supervision they have been able to turnaround their companies and truly progress at an impressive pace. We are lucky to have her amongst our partners!
Entrepreneurship is a roller coaster ride, especially in the startup phase, and Neeru came into the picture just when I needed her most. Neeru values optimism, and this creates a wonderful space for me be to courageously creative. Still, she is pragmatic and consistently reorients my vision towards productivity and growth at each phase, and through each obstacle, real and perceived. She holds me accountable, and is clear and focused on achievement of my goals and objectives. It’s an honor and pleasure to have such guidance,.
