What is the value of coaching?

Have any startup founders here ever had a coach? If so, what's been the main value you have taken away from the experience?  I’ve been coaching founders for a few years now and am always curious/amazed at the takeaways that people leave a coaching relationship with. Often, it’s not what they imagined!

Very simple: Guiding not patronizing and forcing for good without mercy! It is not about business models start-ups need to fit in as they often think outside the box. This means proven models might be right for those doing business for 30 years but not for those doing business in 30 years. Coaches I took the most from have genuinely developed a passion similar to what we feel about our "baby" - giving a clear mission to raise the "baby" together with us and share within, getting their community involved.

@gordianoverschmidt Love this thought of "raising a baby together"…like a co-CEO but without the bells and whistles?

Definite motivation for bad times as well as down-to-earthness in the good times. For us experience & knowledge are important.

Avoid obvious mistakes (which aren't obvious to first time founders)

Coaching centers are the best source of learning and guides. So many students are interested in IAS and I suggest they continue with IAS Coaching in Vadodara and get good results. https://pdgurukul.com/
