When considering employing a business coach and mentor, there are several key considerations to keep in mind:

1. Expertise and Experience: Look for a coach and mentor who has relevant expertise and experience in your industry or the specific challenges you are facing.  Their knowledge and insights can be invaluable in guiding you through your business journey, giving you insights relevant to your specific challenges and goals.

2. Compatibility: Ensure that there is a good fit between you and the coach or mentor.  You should feel comfortable with their communication style and trust their guidance.  Discuss their approach to coaching and mentoring to ensure it aligns with your needs.

3. Goal Alignment: Clarify your objectives and ensure the coach or mentor can support you in achieving those goals.  Your coach and mentor should have a clear understanding of what you are looking to achieve, and they should be able to support you in reaching your objectives.

4. Accountability and Support: Determine how session progress and goals will be measured and ensure the coach or mentor provides ongoing support and accountability.  Regular check-ins and evaluations can be beneficial for tracking your progress.  A good coach and mentor will have excellent communication skills and will be able to provide support when needed.  They should be able to listen actively, ask thought-provoking questions, and provide constructive feedback.

5. Time Commitment and Availability: Consider the frequency and duration of coaching or mentoring sessions needed to achieve your chosen objective(s) and ensure that your chosen coach and mentor can fulfil the role you need them to up front.  Look for a coach and mentor who is committed to your growth and success.  They need to be able to hold you accountable for your actions, help you stay on track, and push you to stretch beyond your comfort zone, and they need to be available to you when you need them.
