The real benefit of a dashboard for your business coaching practice is an enhanced conversation with your client. There are plenty of benefits like saving you (or your client) time from manually collecting data, a clearer understanding of the numbers, etc. but all of that leads towards a stronger conversation which will keep your client more engaged and make them more successful because of it!
There are a few different dashboard options that we offer, along with some business coaching dashboard examples below, but if you have a specific example in mind or want to talk further, feel free to reach out! We love talking shop!
Business Coaching Tools: The Dashboard
While there are many important business coaching tools out there, a dashboard can be a part of almost all of them. The goal of the dashboard is to show client performance in a very digestible way so that the conversation can revolve around actions, not an explanation of the numbers, thus enabling an even better conversation!
On your side, as the business coach, gathering all of this data for each client can be a huge hassle. Dashboards remove that annoying piece of the puzzle and allow you to have automated updates (or at least ones that take less than 5 minutes) that show up in somewhat of a standard view. That way you have a common way to both update and view your client’s performance, in a dashboard that you can design. Your own customizable standard dashboard (intentional oxymoron…).
Financial Dashboards for Business Coaches
One of the foundations of a conversation between a business coach and a client is the financial conversation. Putting the client’s financial KPIs into a dashboard will help you focus on the results, the progress, and the strategy as opposed to the meaning of the numbers - everything will already be laid out for you in a client-friendly way.
I guarantee that clients will gravitate towards a dashboard instead of an income statement printout. Check out the comparison below for reference!

Marketing Dashboards for Business Coaches
How your clients bring in business is another staple piece of the coaching conversation. Putting numbers to each marketing avenue is difficult enough, and changing the conversation from "feel" to data-supported results is another layer of challenge. Unless you have a dashboard of course! Being able to summarize all their marketing efforts in one place, with easily updatable data, and calculations of ROI make the marketing conversation one of the highlights instead of one of the headaches.

Operational Dashboards for Business Coaches
How do your clients spend their time? Can they prove it with data? The operations are, of course, the lifeblood of the company, so being able to see time tracking, hourly rates, sales cycles, inventory levels, and anything else that fits into the day to day of your clients will provide you with the best intel on how to help them and build a strategy for them. The only way to succinctly do that is with a dashboard that puts everything into a simple view.

We Build Business Coaching Dashboards That Make Your Life Easier
Standard and Efficient Ways to Track Performance
Unless you are working with one client, it’s probably very time-consuming to have to gather all the data you need to have a productive conversation. Not with a business coaching dashboard it’s not!
Building simple processes on the backend allows you to eliminate manual data entry, and have everything updated in a client-friendly dashboard. That dashboard can be unique to your practice, but each of your clients can have their own. So you not only save time from data gathering, but you also can jump right into the most productive conversations by letting the dashboard explain the history for you.
Differentiate Yourself from Your Competition
A lot of business coaches will focus on long term goals, mindset, and professional style assessments. Those are all hugely impactful and can make a big difference in your client’s business!
The differentiation comes in when you start tying numbers to all those pieces, and the overall performance of the company. Keep the goals conversation going with a dashboard that shows what has been working best (and what might need to be paused). Bring the mindset and professional style along with some analysis of performance - since refocusing, how have sales conversations been? It’d be best to show a quantifiable difference to prove that everything is working according to plan.
Having a dashboard and accompanying analysis will give you a significant advantage over the dozens of other coaches in your area that will result in more clients, higher retention, and higher fees!
Simple Summaries for your Clients with All Data in One Place
Regardless of what client industry you work in, there are likely several different programs / software that your client uses - each one having its own data. Each one will also have a slightly frustrating presentation of the data that isn’t quite right or isn’t quite what you’re looking for.
A simple dashboard summary will not only give you the exact metrics you and your client want to look at, but it will also consolidate everything into one place for you. Thus eliminating the frustrating default summaries, the need to hop from program to program, and all the confusion that comes with that!
Become a Financial Expert with the Help of a Dashboard
Finances may be a staple of the business coach / client conversation, but that doesn’t mean it’s your favorite subject to talk about. Whether it was a minor part of your experience or all you ever focused on, a good financial dashboard can level the playing field.
Having a dashboard be the foundation of your financial conversation with clients will make the process and conversation easier. Updating the data will be largely automated (if not entirely) so you won’t have to deal with that, and numbers will be clearly presented with indicators of performance against prior timeframes. At a minimum, you could just read the dashboard in the meeting (therefore covering the financial piece to a large extent) and move onto the “why” and strategic discussions from there!
