Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
The Growth Coach, the #1 Business Coaching Franchise in the Country, is proud to announce John Chiaro of the Savannah area as our Growth Coach of the Year.
“I could not be more delighted that John was recognized by the Growth Coach Franchise System as rightly deserving to be our Coach of The Year. This award of highest distinction is based on outstanding client service, business performance, demonstrated leadership and contributions to our overall franchise system. We’re very honored to have John in our franchise family and grateful for all the significant contributions he has made on a local, regional and national level,” said Dan Murphy, Growth Coach Founder and CEO.
Chiaro opened his Growth Coach franchise close to six years ago after retiring from a long corporate career where he held multiple leadership roles with Staples, including the President of Staples International. Chiaro also has led in the merger and acquisition of multiple businesses and was the founding partner of Ward Joseph Consulting before opening his Growth Coach franchise.
“I was pleasantly surprised to be named Coach of the Year. In any walk of life, such recognition is seldom sought but much appreciated. I’m proud to be joining the ranks of our other coaches of the year who came before me – it’s a fantastic group of people and professionals,” Chiaro said. “I’ve tried especially hard to support other coaches around the country and work with Growth Coach Headquarters anyway I can. I think they realize I’m someone anyone in our network can turn to for help or advice.”
In addition to his successful career, Chiaro received a bachelor’s in business administration from Bryant University and an advanced degree from Babson College in strategic planning and management in retailing. He’s also a member of the local chamber of commerce, on the boards of the Palmetto Health Hospice and the Crisis Pregnancy Center of Lowcountry, and the President of the BNI Savannah.
“When I became a coach, it wasn’t to be recognized, but rather to serve and be seen as someone people turn to for business and sales guidance. That’s what I love about being a Growth Coach – it’s a great way to give back, serve others and be involved in the community while owning a fulfilling and financially-rewarding business,” Chiaro said.
The Growth Coach, founded in Cincinnati, sold its first franchise in 2003. However, their proven and guaranteed coaching process has a 20-year track record of helping clients. Today, the business and sales coaching franchise, in over 140 markets in North America and abroad, continues to serve small business owners, management teams, sales teams, and self-employed professionals. While most of the coaching is delivered through affordable group workshops, they also provide one-to-one coaching, remote coaching delivered via phone and web, and special project coaching.
The Growth Coach was recently included in the Bond’s Top 100 Franchises and has been recognized in Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Franchise 500” as the #1 Business Coaching and Consulting Franchise as well as in the magazine’s “Best of the Best” and “Top Home-Based Franchise” listings. The company’s Strategic Mindset Coaching Process is so effective that it comes with a money-back guarantee.
“John is a genuine Go-Giver. He not only helps countless numbers of clients in his community have greater success and personal balance, but also helps the larger Growth Coach franchise community innovate and improve,” Murphy said. “He is highly respected as a leader by his peers and constantly gives back to the franchise system with his time, talents, ideas and contributions. While very successful and accomplished, John has always stayed grounded, humble, and of service to others. John generously serves on our prestigious President's Forum, leads our national Marketing Help Desk, faithfully participates in our training and peer-to-peer education sessions, and always steps up to present at our regional and national meetings.”
