Testimonials

BizFizz is different – it has no rules, no set systems, no boundaries! The coach is entirely free to pursue a course of action that directly benefits the community, no matter how unconventional that course of action may be. And it works! — Fred Forshaw, Bizfizz Coach, Tuxford

Enterprise coach training

BizFizz is a revolutionary approach to business, enterprise and entrepreneurial development using coaching and network support to encourage, enhance and grow local economic regeneration, wealth creation and well-being. Applying the lessons from the BizFizz approach the Enterprise Coaching programme has been developed for practitioners who are or will be supporting enterprising residents.

The Enterprise Coaching programme is run over two modules and each participant will explore the purpose and methodologies of coaching as applied to business/enterprise support.

The programme includes:

  • Responsible enterprise and the regeneration of local economies
  • Values that underpin the coaching approach to enterprise
  • Coaching methodology
  • Coaching practise
  • Coaching tools
  • Building & maintaining networks
  • Working with clients

  • Regeneration Officers
  • Enterprise Development Officers
  • Enterprise Coaches/Business advisors
  • Community development workers

Method

  • To share with participants the experience of coaching. The participants experience the approach through applied coaching and tools and Tutors mirroring the approach throughout the workshop.
  • To provide the opportunity for participants to consider ways in which they may apply this methodology within their work.

  • The workshops are run over five days (with a review at month 3 and 6).
