Our methodology and software
can be very helpful in building your practice
and giving you a point of differentiation
over other Business Coaches, consultants
and accountants. Our systems will help you
- Create recurring revenue. The scorecard
can be established as a monthly service.
This means that you would set up a regular
review of your client’s performance.
- Vary your role: You could either act
as a facilitator, a trainer or as a consultant.
You could help your client collect the
data and prepare the scorecard or review
the results at the end of the month and
supply strategic guidance and advice.
- Win new clients: Not only does the scorecard
service give you a point of differentiation
but the presentation of a simple methodology
and a laminated copy of a scorecard can
help to win new clients.
- Up-sell existing clients: If you have
an existing accountancy or consultancy
practice, the scorecard is a great way
to upsell your existing clients to new
- Stay within your Comfort zone: The scorecard
type approach allows accountants and consultants
to stay within their comfort zone. The
conversation can be steered around performance,
what went wrong, what were the obstacles
and what is the action plan for next month.
Your main role is to help focus, motivate
and encourage and at the same time to
provide sound business advice and direction.
- Profitability: The software provides
you with a tool that can manage your client
information and produce scorecards. The
objective of any service based business
is to maximize revenue and to minimize
labour time. The software allows you to
produce nice presentations and monthly
scorecards in a short period of time.
Most importantly the service that you
can charge may be billed at very profitable
- Delegation: Some of the administration
aspects of the scorecard service may be
delegated to junior staff members. This
means that you can build up your service
based business relying on other members
of your staff to earn revenue.
- National Advertising: The One Page Business
Coach concept is being nationally advertised
to thousands of organisations. The software
is being retailed through the Institute
of Management bookshops and the Australian
Institute of Company Directors Bookshop.

The positive: The corporate
and business coaching market is one of the
fastest growing industry categories and
represents an excellent opportunity for
people that are wishing to establish themselves
in a new business. It is estimated that
the total industry grosses $1 billion dollars
worldwide and there are over 10,000 full
and part time business coaches.
There are many types of coaching assignments
and coaching packages. According to the
International Coaching Federation website
a business coach could typically expect
to charge between $300 and $500 per month.
And experienced certified coaches, or those
that work with executives or entrepreneurs
start at $500 and go up from there. The
work could typically be performed by a ½
hour phone call per week or packages can
be designed to suit both the candidate and

The Negatives: Many newstart coaching and
consultancy businesses fail. Every month
the dreams of those new start operators
are shattered. One of the major problems
that most newstart operators have is in
winning new clients. This is partly due
- Low confidence levels
- Lack of understanding of the marketing
- Trying to sell rather than build a brand
- Lack of knowing how to network
- Lack of drive to regularly network
- Lack of a support group
- Cash flow problems
- Poor systems and positioning of the

do I add coaching to my existing consultancy
Coaching is a slightly different
concept to consulting. We explain this in
further detail later in this page. But in
a nutshell, consulting implies that you
identify a problem that a client has and
you propose a solution. Coaching is more
about the facilitation of a process so that
the client can self help.
In reality, the more business
and consulting experience you have then
the more that you will interplay both disciplines
in the one assignment. You will both coach
and at the same time steer your client toward
a solution that from your experience you
know is the best option.
Our philosophy at Corprat
is to ignore the constraints of definitions
and concentrate on the one thing that you
were employed for....to make your client
money. And I don't think that either you
or your client will care whether this is
done through coaching, consulting, mentoring
or training. At the end of the day it is
what makes you and your client comfortable.
The important part about coaching
is that it can increase dramatically the
profitability of your business. Let me explain.
As a consultancy, you need to first find
a pliable client and then find someone with
a problem that falls within your expertise.
This limits your market size and then when
you win the assignment your revenue is limited
to solving the problem.
Coaching on the other hand
broadens your entire market and offers you
a different framework to market your services.
In coaching your marketing communication
is all about..."Have you achieved what
you wanted to achieve, I can help by acting
as a coach". Your methodology then
revolves around diagnostics, goal setting
and action planning. And from a billing
perspective you bill on a monthly regular
basis. You provide regular management guidance
that covers broader issues and problem solves
along the way.
So there are two major things
you will need to do if you are to transform
your business. You will need to improve
your understanding of the coaching process,
you will need to study and understand the
marketing process (how to win clients) and
how you gear your company towards this opportunity
and you will need to implement a set of
systems and processes to transform your

am an accountant, how do I add coaching
to my existing business
For years accountants have
been trying to diversify their business
away from just compliance work. In fact
business coaching can be highly rewarding
and highly profitable.
We have recently talked with
5 practices (2-5 partners) that have all
decided that they want to get into the area
of "management guidance and advice".
The biggest barriers stopping
any accountancy firm from moving into this
area is confidence, processes and the gearing
of the business.
Out of the five practices
that we recently held talks with, all had
geared their business so that one of the
partners had more time available to expand
the practice in a new area. But each was
holding back because the partner was not
feeling confident enough to dive into the
area of business coaching. This lack of
confidence was also highlighted because
of the lack of business coaching processes.
Corprat is not an accountancy
business and does not have any qualified
accountants that works as advisors. We understand
business coaching, we understand the processes
and systems to make coaching work.
Over the years through the
experience of Peter Hickey, who successfully
authored and launched products that have
been sold to thousands of accountants (including
MAUS Profit Builder, The Consultants Guide
to Business Planning and MAUS KPI Manager)
Peter has a unique understanding of the
barriers that confront an accounting practice
in this transitional period.

a business coaching business to your practice
we can provide you with some free advice
that may make your starting point much easier.
