What background do coaches come from?
We have a wide range of coaches from different backgrounds ranging from corporate organisations, previous business owners, bankers, accountants and even the military.
People often get into coaching because they have a desire to help others succeed.
What do we look for?
You don’t need extensive business experience to start an ActionCOACH franchise. But we are looking for people who have a willingness to learn and develop themselves, enjoyed success in their career or sport and have a passion for helping others.
What businesses do we coach?
ActionCOACH’s core proposition is to help others… to make a difference to the lives of business owners and employees, helping to stop businesses from failing and closing and instead, making them flourish.
We coach small to medium-size business from every industry imaginable. Your ideal client would be 5+ employees, but we have programmes to suit every business.
Is there training & support?
You will receive comprehensive training and support as soon as your franchise agreement is completed.
You will attend the 9-day ActionCOACH University training and also attend Step-Up week training where you will gain hands on experience on how to follow up and turn suspects into prospects. Our UK support team members will be by your side during training.
We also have over 70 training and support days each year which are available to you throughout your life as an Action Coach.
What can I expect from my Action Coach?
We will push you, cajole you, help you, be there for you, and even do some things with you … but in the end you ́ve still got to DO the work.
Ultimately, only YOU can ever be truly accountable and responsible for your own success, but we will guarantee to provide the best service and support available, to answer your questions and challenges promptly, and offer you the most current and appropriate processes and approaches.
We are fully committed to helping you become successful (whether you like it at the time) or not.
Once we ́ve helped you set your goals and create your plan, we’ll do whatever it takes to make sure you achieve your goals … at the same time promoting a balanced lifestyle as an overriding theme in all we do.
What is One-on-One coaching?
We offer many different coaching programmes, all designed to help your business grow revenue and profits and while you can always start with a group coaching programme, nothing gives you the results that one-on-one coaching does.
Typically, it takes 3-5 years of weekly participation to get your business into its most profitable state. The following two years focus on wealth creation.
There isn’t an area of your business that one-on-one coaching doesn’t touch. From weekly coaching calls and goal setting sessions to working with you on your new marketing pieces, you will develop new sales strategies and business systems so you can work less and learn all you need to know to make your dreams come true.
What’s an Alignment Consultation?
The Alignment Consultation is where your Action Coach starts with every business owner. During this meeting
your Action Coach will learn as much as possible about your business, your goals, your challenges, your sales, your marketing, your finances and so much more. An Alignment Consultation is done with three goals in mind:
- First, to know exactly where your business is now.
- Second, to clarify your business and personal goals.
- And third, to get the crucial pieces of information needed to create an Action Plan to get your business and life to where you want in 12 months’ time.
The plan isn’t a traditional business or marketing plan, but instead a step-by-step plan of action you’ll work through each year of your one-on-one coaching programme … The plan
is also what makes the annual Alignment Consultations so profitable for our clients.
Why would I need a Business Coach?

This is how your Action Coach helps you make your goals and dreams come true.

It doesn’t get any simpler than that.

When is the best time to get started?
Right now! Before you take another step, waste any more money, lose another sale, work too many more hours, miss another family event, or forget another special occasion, you need to call ActionCOACH today.
Far too many business people wait and see … mistaken in thinking that working harder will make everything better. Remember, what you know got you where you are today. To get where you want to go, you’ve got to make some changes and most likely, you’ll have to learn something new …
There’s no time like the present to get started on your dreams and goals.
Why do you also recommend books and videos?
We do this to save you both time and money. You can learn the basics in your own time so when you get together with your Action Coach, you’ll be working on higher-level implementations rather than the basics …
It’s also a very powerful way for you to speed up the coaching process and get phenomenal rather than just great results.
Can ActionCOACH provide training for my team members too?
Yes … in fact, we believe training your people is almost as important as coaching you. Your Action Coach can provide you and your business with many different training modules, including TeamRICH, SalesRICH, PhoneRICH and ServiceRICH. You’ll be amazed at how much enthusiasm and commitment comes from your team as they experience each of our training programmes.
We can also provide testing and evaluation to help you gain perspective on opportunities for team development, hiring, discovering individual strengths, and more. Your ActionCOACH will discuss these with you, should they be required.
Speak to an Action Coach to see which training modules are best for your business.
What areas will a Business Growth Specialist coach me in?
Our “5 Ways” and “6 Steps” are two of the most powerful formulas in the world of business and we put them to use to work with you in all areas to help you multiply your revenues and profit and get your business to work so you don’t have to. When you work with an Action Coach, the emphasis taken will depend on you, your business, and of course, your goals.
The key areas are:
• Sales and Finance – You can’t know if you’re winning if
you don’t have a full understanding of the scoreboard. This is the backbone for creating a profitable business, and one of the areas we’ll help you get spectacular results in.
• Marketing – If you want to make a sale, you’ve got to find a prospect first. Over the next 12 months, your ActionCOACH will teach you amazingly simple, yet powerful, streetwise marketing techniques and approaches to drive up profits.
• Team Building & Recruitment – You’ll never wish to find the right people again. You’ll have motivated, passionate, enthusiastic, and loyal team members for your business when your ActionCOACH shows you how to put our de-selection process to use.
• Systems & Business Development – End the hopeless cycle of “the business running you” and begin running your business. We will show you the secrets of having your business “work” … even when you’re not there.
• Mastery and Customer Service – Discover how to deliver your product or service consistently, making it easy for your customers to buy and leaving them feeling delighted with your service. Learn new ways to motivate your current customers to give you referrals and to ensure their repeat business. These are just two of the many strategies we will teach you.
What results have other businesses achieved from Action Coaching?
Everything from owners previously working over 60 hours a week down to working just 10 … right through to revenue increases in 100’s and even 1,000’s of percent. Our results speak for themselves and are highlighted by specific examples featuring real people with real businesses … getting really great results.
First, your Action Coach will help you get focused on your goals and the step-by-step processes to get you there. This focus alone is amazing in its effect on you and your business results.
Second, your Action Coach will hold you accountable to get things done, not just the day-to-day running of the business, but for the dynamic growth of the business. You’re making an investment in your success – and we’re going to get you there …
Third, your Action Coach is going to teach you as many of our 328 profit-building and business building strategies as you may need.
So, whether your goal is to make more money, or work fewer hours … or, both … every year you can turn those goals into a reality.
But don’t take our word for it. Just ask any of the thousands of existing ActionCOACH clients or the tens of thousands who have worked with ActionCOACH to achieve their dreams.
Will it cost me extra to implement the strategies?
No, implementing the strategies is part of the ActionCOACH experience. Give your Action Coach just a half-hour to show you how to turn your marketing into an investment which yields sales and profits rather than just increasing your overhead…
In most cases, an Action Coach will actually save you money when they help you unearth areas that aren’t working for you or your business. For some marketing or team building programmes, you will need to invest some money to make more money. And yet, when you follow our easy-to-use systems, calculated risks net substantial returns over time.
Remember, when you default to the accounting way of saving costs, you can only add a few percentage points to your bottom line …
Following the ActionCOACH formulas, the returns from your sales, marketing and team members can be exponential.
Won’t business coaching just mean more work for me?
Once you know the ActionCOACH definition of a business, you will never ask this question again. Our goal is to help you build a Profitable, Commercial Enterprise That Works … Without You.
The last two words are the most important because, in the end, our goal is to have you no longer working IN the business, but, instead, working ON it. That means more time to spend doing what you want to do while the business serves you, instead of the other way around.
Of course, when you set the plan with your Action Coach, it may seem a bit overwhelming and you may need to find a few extra hours in the first few weeks, but no one ever said achieving your goals would be easy …
However, the further you work into the programme, the less work you’ll actually have to do. And at the same time, your company will be more productive and profitable.
Simply put, you’ll be working smarter. You will be amazed at how focused you’ll be and how much you’ll get done. With focus, an Action Coach, and most importantly the ActionCOACH systems, you’ll be achieving a whole lot more with the same or even less work and effort.
How can I be sure coaching will work in my industry and in my business?
ActionCOACH is expert in the areas of sales, marketing, business development, business management, and team building and, with literally hundreds of different profit-building strategies, you’ll soon see how powerful our business growth system is.
Because you are the expert in your business and industry, together we can apply our system to make your business more effective.
Because of our network of coaches all over the world, ActionCOACH will have worked with, managed, worked in or even owned a business that is the same or very similar to yours.
Our extensive network means when you hire an Action Coach, you hire the full resources of the entire ActionCOACH team
to find a solution for any and every challenge you may have. Imagine hiring a company with the collective knowledge of thousands of experts, in virtually every industry, in every corner of the world, ready to help you.
How long will I need to work with an Action Coach?
For as long as you’re in business… Well we would say that, wouldn’t we! However, participate fully and it’s odds on every year your Action Coach will turn out to be one of your most profitable team members. And why would you ever sack a profitable team member?
If you’ve been in business for more than a few weeks, you’ve seen at least one or two so-called “quick fixes” …
Most consultants seem to think they can solve all your problems in a few hours or a few days. At ActionCOACH,
we believe long-term success means we aren’t just offering suggestions or doing the work for you; it means doing the work with you, showing you how to do it, working alongside you and creating success together.
Each year, you’ll see your goals become a reality, you’ll gain both the confidence and the knowledge to make it happen again and again.
