How Business Coaching Works

Companies hire a business coach when they believe that investing in their employees is the best way to grow and sustain profitability for the business. CEOs hire a business coach to help their managers and employees work more effectively, efficiently, and enthusiastically. What does this actually mean?

Activate Group’s Certified Business Coaches work to implement foundational habits in five categories that may be missing from your organization: strategy, planning, accountability, stewardship, and human capital management.

Within the Business Acceleration System™, Activate Group’s Business Acceleration Tools® are instrumental in providing the platform for you to achieve objectives and facilitate the growth process within your organization.

Business Acceleration Tools

The Business Acceleration Checklist helps identify foundational habits that may be missing from your organization, which could impact long-term effectiveness in areas such as priorities, meeting habits, core values, accountability, communication, vision clarity, strategy, transparency, and talent management. The Business Acceleration Calculator helps identify 21 different ways to accelerate and grow the amount of cash in your organization.

Stewardship Tools

Through the application of a culture enhancement worksheet and a purpose worksheet, your team can quickly identify specific areas where resources and industry opportunities are not being optimized to their fullest potential in alignment with core values.

Strategy Tools

Strategy tools engage the broader vision of your organization, helping to clearly identify the distinctive contribution of your organization to the industry-at-large, as well as identify internal strengths and weaknesses in light of emerging external trends. The three-year focus tool helps to simplify your focus, pulling back the curtain on the core elements for elevating your organization over the next few years toward your one, audacious goal.

Human Capital Management Tools

Human Capital is your organization’s greatest asset. These tools help provide a visual of the effectiveness of each member, identifying the areas where core values are not in alignment, and providing a system for developing role accountability at every level. This ensures the right people are filling the right roles.

Planning Tools

Planning tools aid your setting goals, prioritizing, and aligning your organization to your audacious (10+ year) goal from both a strategic and financial perspective.

Accountability Tools

Accountability is essential in the strategic planning process. Every worthy goal needs a set of KPIs to propel forward momentum. The accountability tools help identify measurable steps toward long-term desired outcomes, as well as an outline for meeting rhythms and follow-through, to help propel the vision forward in a systematic manner.


We believe leaders have unlimited levels of untapped potential which lead to greater fulfillment and profitability. The key is to unlock this potential within all your employees. By mastering the right leadership methods, you can achieve audacious goals, reduce stress, and invest in what truly matters.
