Unraveling Consulting and Coaching for Window Treatment Small Businesses: Pt 2

With part 1 of this blog already covered, we can differentiate the distinctions between consulting and coaching. Now, let's navigate the next steps.

It’s time to figure out what aligns best with your small business. And it’s time to get into the nitty gritty.

Start by understanding the weight of your decision. If you’re struggling and on the fence, jot down a pros and cons list to visualize the optimal choice for your small business. But once you've made up your mind, stand firm in your decision-making, whether addressing immediate issues or envisioning long-term successes. Once committed, there's no turning back. This means investing time wisely to identify which path aligns best with your small business needs.


You need consulting if you face specific challenges requiring immediate, targeted solutions. It’s all about a structured, results-driven approach, mainly if you aim to tackle issues within a defined timeframe.


On the flip side, coaching resembles a journey of professional evolution for enduring success. You value a more adaptable, reflective problem-solving approach to nurture leadership skills for sustained business growth.

Both approaches have their strengths, and the best choice depends on the unique challenges and goals of the individual or organization. It also depends on how QUICK you need things to move forward.

When you’ve reached a new level of growth, you might encounter obstacles or uncertainties about the strategies that once worked. This uncertainty can be overwhelming, leading to indecision or a lack of clarity on the way forward.

That’s why Behind the Design is here to help you figure out that scary “before" transition into sustainable growth.
