Having a map helps you get where you want to go.
A personal business, leadership, finance, or life coach gives you the expertise of someone who walked down that road before you. The destination is specific to you, and only you can decide where you want to go. However, a coach can help you get there by walking with you, helping you avoid the pitfalls, and speed up the journey toward your ultimate destination.
We offer coaching in several areas beneficial to business. Don't see what you're looking for? Contact us today for more information or to book your appointment.
Small Business Startup
There has never been a better time than today to start your own business, but he key to success is starting off right. Most small businesses fail because they do not plan wisely. Sofus’ Small Business Coaches can help you think through, plan, and execute the startup of your business.
Sales & Marketing Optimization
Your company can have the best product, website, or logistics, but if your salespeople can't close deals or you can't turn traffic into sales, your business will fail. Sofus Group will do an assessment of your current sales and marketing and work with your sales team to teach them how to bring in and build a loyal customer base.
Marketing & Social Media
Marketing is teaching. Every business teaches its customers why its product is better than the competition. Delivering the correct message, correctly, at the correct time, is a skill all businesses must master. Contact a Sofus Marketing coach to help construct the messages and methods best for you and your business.

Change in any organization is tough; it affects all aspects of the business. A Sofus Change Management coach can help you process ideas you may not have thought about. We can work with you to design a plan to implement your change as well as manage or help your team members accomplish the project.
No one sets out to make financial mistakes. Most people want to do better managing their money but they may not know-how. Where do they start? How do they get organized? How do they know what to do and what not to do, and how do they set some goals in the first place?
Sofus Financial Coaches have life experience. We know what it is like to be scared and worried about being one unforeseen emergency away from disaster. Our coaches act as teachers and mentors; we won't do the work for you, but we will hasten the learning curve and help you establish realistic goals. We will give guidance and hold you accountable for your financial decisions. Part of changing your future is working the plan for yourself and realizing the sense of accomplishment that comes from seeing success.

Leadership & Executive Coaching
Executive coaching can have profound results for the individual and for an entire leadership team.
Executive and leadership coaching can be used to bring new managers and leaders up to speed in an organization and help them prepare for the challenges of leading others in the organization.
A coach can also be utilized by a board of directors to help facilitate communication on the board level or build unity around an organization's common core concepts.
An executive and leadership coach will be able to work with the individual or team to help both grow in the skills needed for better future results.
A new leader is promoted in the organization who has the technical skills but needs help in the people and cultural sides of leadership.
There is a concern by a board or CEO that one of the middle or upper managers is not where they would like them to be and need a seasoned leader to guide and direct their performance.
A small business is growing and the leader is not sure how to make the transition from owner and day-to-day-worker to strategic leader working on the business and not in the business.
The next generation has taken on the family business and struggles to make it their own while preserving the culture that was successful in the past.
The road of life can be littered with detours, flat tires, and other unexpected circumstances. You may feel stuck in the slow lane while others are passing you by. You may lack focus or feel unable to make decisions and desire wisdom and direction for the future. You may struggle to feel connected to yourself and life. You are not alone.
