Business-Coaching-Intake-Questions-Sheet Business-Coaching-Intake-Questions-Sheet BACKGROUND: As your business coach, it's helpful for me to understand how you view your business and your involvement in it. These questions are to stimulate your thinking and make our work together more productive. And because the personal affects business and vice versa, there is a page of business-focused and a page of personal-focused pondering questions. It's helpful to answer each of these questions as clearly and thoughtfully as possible, although a short answer – a couple of words or sentences - is usually enough. PAGE 1: Business Focus1.
