Have you ever thought about working with a child care coach but weren’t sure if your business could afford it? Our guest Lisa Giancarli spotlights this topic and how invaluable a coach can be to facilitating a successful child care business.

Lisa shares her unique backstory that led her into the child care field and the challenges she faced while learning the ins and outs of the child care business that she and her husband stumbled into.

Searching for answers to successfully run her business led Lisa to join a coaching program. Lisa expressed that to work with a coach “feels like you go into a partnership…with someone that has had success.” “They’re helping you identify your problems, helping you take action and see the results.”  Lisa shared the positive impact coaching had on her as she navigated leading her child care team. Coaching helped her take an honest look at herself and helped keep her accountable.

Child care owners are often trying to balance many spinning plates at the same time. It’s easy to lose sight of different dynamics. Coaching can help owners look at “everything”. “What’s going right?” and “what’s going wrong?” are equally important.

Lisa believes in “working on your business not in your business”. It can be a difficult transition from a director to an owner. “A good coach does help you take a step back and look at the school as a whole.”

What is the power of one-on-one coaching? Coaches get to know you and your business more intimately. The time spent with a coach is quality time; where specific areas of concern can be addressed.

Lisa estimates that one-on-one coaching is the “best money I’ve spent in my business life.” “It’s a personal journey, not just for your business. Coaching can change your mindset.”  Coaching is an investment in your child care business. Lisa affirms, “it’s an investment. Not only an investment in your business, it’s an investment in you.”

As a Child Care Genius University professor, Lisa can’t wait to help other child care owners experience greater success with their businesses.
