6 Coaching Questions for Business Building

It's the start of a new week and a new month. For some of us we have another five weeks before kids are
back in school and summer holidays end for most of the workforce, and for others they return to school this month. For those coaches who work with business owners of any stripe, today's series on Six Coaching Questions is for you. For those of you who also run a business, consider these questions in the context of your business right now:

1. What's the biggest opportunity facing your business right now? What would it take to maximize this?
2. What's your number #1 priority this month? This quarter?
3. If you knew you would succeed, where would you place more attention and resources?
4. What's your biggest challenge right now? What do you need to say no to?
5. The one project on your to-do list which needs to be completed this month is....? The one project on your to do list which really needs to come off the list (because perhaps it's been carried over and carried over....)
6. I want to be putting more attention around x this month...

As a bonus, circle back to question #3 about "If you knew you would succeed, where would you place more attention and resources?". What's interesting about your response there? Whats important about that?

Have a great start to the week,
