Our Diverse Business Enterprises (DBEs) coaching and business development services are provided in two different programs: In a one-on-one business coaching basis or in a group coaching alternative.
A &P is confident to say that this is by far one of our main differentiators from its potential competition in the market place. Our one of a kind individual coaching session is customized according to the need of the coached business owner, the readiness of the business and the individual requirements of the corporation or government agency, it will be introduced to.
This strategy provide a solution to the frustration of the diverse business enterprise that goes to the certification process as a minority, women business owned, disable, veteran or LGBT, then goes to all the events provided by those agencies that certified them, or by other agencies offering matchmaking events with their buyers, to find out that after the event, their phone calls and emails are not returned, and no business opportunities are offered. Simultaneously we provide a solution to the frustration of the corporations and government agencies that are approached by hundreds of diverse suppliers to find out that only few (almost 5 to 10%) are qualified to work with them.
Group coaching is a live two monthly sessions, peer-to-peer coaching one-year program, made up of 6 to 12 members facilitated by a certified transformational business coach.
Our group coaching program offers an outstanding, cost effective coaching solution for entrepreneurs, investors, partners, and couples in business, at any growth stage through a joint learning environment. You and 4 to 7 other members will team up with an experience business coach to discover how to enhance your relationships, integrate your values into your business and grow your top and bottom line while making a community impact.
This group coaching alternative offers: three hours – monthly group coaching session; a monthly individual one-hour session with a certified business coach; peer support, advice and accountability and an opportunity to connect with other business owners.
