Lake Charles, Louisiana (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
The economic growth burst expected in Southwest Louisiana inspired a local executive to leave Corporate America and launch a business to help area business owners and professionals drive success and balance their lives.
According to Dr. Loren Scott, a consulting economist and retired professor of economics at LSU, the Lake Charles Metropolitan area plans a remarkable $20.6 billion in new construction work in 2012 and 2013– including three of the largest projects in southwest Louisiana history.
As the new President of The Growth Coach of Southwest Louisiana, David Narigon has a great deal to offer local businesses during this expansion. Narigon is a former executive in the insurance industry with 31 years of management experience. But, he also has a unique sideline - he owns and manages a farm of nearly 800 acres of land in Corning, Iowa, 780 miles away. He’s a master at balancing two businesses successfully, and wants to share his skills with those who struggle to keep even one enterprise operating smoothly.
“I’ve seen too many business owners spending the majority of their time handling snafus, answering phones and taking care of everyday tasks their employees should be handling, essentially making them feel overwhelmed and unhappy,” says Narigon. “My goal is to work with local business owners and leaders and help them run their businesses more effectively and efficiently, while balancing their professional and personal lives.”
As a business and sales coach, Narigon helps business owners achieve greater success and satisfaction by utilizing the Growth Coach Strategic Mindset® process, helping them with “between the ears” types of issues and to overcome limiting beliefs, bad habits and bad business practices. The process helps owners learn to run a business, be better leaders and managers and think and behave more strategically – and make more money working fewer hours. They are given the structure and discipline on a regular basis to think, create an action plan, and then receive on-going accountability to stay on track.
Narigon says the process doesn’t tell business owners how to run their businesses. It gives them the skills to figure it out for themselves. “We empower business owners to solve their own problems and seize their own opportunities,” he added. “They are the experts. I just give them the tools.”
Jackie Hickman, executive director of BARC, a Louisiana state non-profit organization, recognized the organization’s need for coaching and is currently working with Narigon. “I’m learning to identify the areas of our organization that are not functioning at capacity and structure effective plans for change. After just two coaching sessions, I can already see the value of David’s insights and The Growth Coach Strategic Mindset process. As we move forward, I fully expect to see a better functioning, more productive business model develop and be in practice very soon.”
Narigon’s franchise serves numerous communities in Southwest Louisiana, including Moss Bluff, Lake Charles, Lafayette, Crowley, Egan, Evangeline, Lota, Jennings, Rayne, Roanoke, Scott, Welsh, Deridder, Iowa, Longville, Ragley, Sulphur and Westlake.
