AdviCoach: Elevating Mid-Michigan Businesses

Saturday, June 1, 2019

"The thing that got you to a certain point, won't get you to the next level."

These are words often said by Tom Hamp, business coach at AdviCoach of Mid-Michigan. He has devoted his career to helping others elevate theirs.

In February of 2011, Hamp joined the AdviCoach franchise and launched his business in Lansing. Since opening, he has trained businesses owners throughout Michigan.

“When an owner is up to their eyeballs in day-today activities, I help them delegate tasks and prioritize,” Hamp says. “As a CEO, you have presidential responsibilities and AdviCoach is here to help you realize those so you can be the best leader.”

A common trend Hamp often sees is the plateauing of successful companies. Whether it’s hiring someone with more expertise or improving time management with current employees, Hamp has the knowledge to get your business to the next level.

The first step is a 30-minute phone conversation discussing everything from company background to biggest successes and challenges. Next, Hamp sets up an in-person coaching session that provides a preview of the coaching structure going forward.

Before Hamp leaves each session, he asks: “as a business owner, what are the five highest priorities you have to get done until I see you next?” Hamp says he begins with baby steps and over time, as clients make efforts to improve each week, the results slowly begin to show.

The typical contract is three-months, with Hamp visiting each week. Many business owners want to provide for employees but there may be a lack of education on how to do so. AdviCoach is a resource, allowing owners to put money back into their business.

“I may be your coach but that doesn’t mean it’s a weakness. It’s actually very smart,” Hamp says. “You don’t have to hire me forever. You can always come back.”

Hamp says one of the most rewarding aspects of working with Lansing businesses is guiding them to make smart business moves, and in turn their success is also the community’s success.

Hamp encourages business owners to set up an initial call if any of the following scenarios sound familiar: salaries do not match employer’s talent, a profit is not drawn, struggling check to check, continually working overtime, internal family/employer drama or inconsistent sales.
