The Need for ActionCOACH
Have a think about local business owners you know... chances are they set up their business because they were an expert in that field. For example, most hairdressing businesses are owned by people who are great at cutting hair, but does that make the owner great at managing people, managing finances, sales, marketing, and systems? You're right, probably not. That's where ActionCOACH comes into play...
Over the last twenty years plus, ActionCOACH has become great at the business of business - finding out what works and what doesn't work in every kind of business. With more than 3,500 strategies and tactics to draw on, a trained and licensed business coach can confidently guarantee their business owner clients a return on investment from an ActionCOACH service inside 6 months.
Whether it's a fish and chip shop or a consultancy practice, there are only five ways the business can make more profit and ActionCOACH has developed dozens of strategies to grow each of those five ways... a model that you can learn about at an ActionCOACH Discovery Day.
There are over one million UK businesses in& ActionCOACH's target market for its flagship 1-2-1 mentoring programmes. Each Action Business Coach has enough time to personally mentor ten business owners, so to reach just 1% of that target market, ActionCOACH needs a team of 1,000 business coaches in the UK… so far they’ve recruited the first 150 of that team.
If you think you have definitely got what it takes, the opportunity is there for you to start making a difference for the business owners in your local community.
