Action coaches, guarantee for success
For nearly 20 years, ActionCOACH Business Coaches have been teaching businesses how to be profitable and showing business owners how free up more personal time in their lives. There have been many studies showing that the coaching process works and the most recent offers powerful evidence of the impact of business coaching.
A recent study has shown that businesses that work with an ActionCOACH Business Coach have grown their revenues, despite difficult economic times. Although statistics for small and medium sized business are not available for Namibia or Southern Africa, in the state of Florida in the USA, businesses have grown their revenue by more than US$12 million.
Those same businesses had also grown their profits by more than US$4.3 million, for average increases of 79% for revenues and 106% for profits. All in all, those businesses saw a return on investment of US$7,50 for every dollar they spent.
Former ActionCOACH Chief Executive Officer Jodie Shaw was happy with the results of the study, but hardly surprised.
“We know that business coaching works, and more importantly, our clients know that it works. They see it in their ledgers and in the quality of their lives,” Shaw said. “But the fact that businesses have grown so rapidly with coaching is just more proof that, no matter what the economy is like, working with an ActionCOACH Business Coach delivers outstanding return on investment.”
ActionCOACH is the world’s leader in business and executive coaching. ActionCOACH founder, Chairman and President Brad Sugars started the company in 1993 and began franchising in 1997. Since then, the company has led an industry that is recognized as the second fastest growing business category behind Information Technology.
“Our systems, and our coaches, are the best in the world so we expect to get outstanding results from people that are committed to following our methodology and willing to be accountable. This study shows how much can be accomplished when people are committed and how much we, both individually, and as a franchise, can accomplish,” Shaw said.
ActionCOACH has been operating in locally since 2009 with very good results. “These results are a reflection of the Florida Study”, says Francois Smith a local ActionCOACH business coach.
According to Smith, one of the major challenges for most business owners is that although they now their industry, not all have a formal education in business management, He elaborates, “Most business owners have learnt to manage their businesses by trial and error. As a result of this, some of their operating strategies do not always support optimal business growth.” According to Smith, many Namibian businesses do not reach their full potential.
ActionCOACH offers business owners a proven and guaranteed system of business building that focuses first on growth in cash flow and profits, as well as systematised ways to retain customers and generate qualified new leads for any business in any business category.
