Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) August 12, 2013
As a long time business consultant, Doug McDavid knows what it takes to build and grow a successful business. He worked as an executive consultant for IBM for 15 years and has experience counseling everything from large companies and government departments to small business and start-ups around the world.
Now McDavid is excited to better serve local companies as the owner of The Growth Coach of Sacramento, California.
“In my professional experience, I’ve focused on being a business architect. I think it’s important to look at the big picture, but still be able to drive into the details. That’s why I’m looking forward to being a Growth Coach. The Growth Coach advocates looking at an entire business and making long-term improvements that will encourage success at work and balance in life,” McDavid said.
The Growth Coach, founded in Cincinnati, sold its first franchise in 2003 and has a 20-year track record as a leading business and sales coaching franchise dedicated to helping business owners, entrepreneurs, company leaders, management teams and sales professionals.
Today, the business and sales coaching franchise is in over 140 markets in North America and abroad, and was recently included in the Bond’s Top 100 Franchises and has been recognized in Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Franchise 500,” “Best of the Best” and “Top Home-Based Business” listings. 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 projects.
McDavid said he’s looking forward to making the switch from a big business consultant to a community-based business and sales coach.
“I’m truly an advocate for the businesses I work with – I look at myself as a collaborator and colleague, not just a consultant. I’m excited to start my encore career as a Growth Coach owner because it will allow me to truly be a coach and make a lasting positive impact on my community,” McDavid said.
Joris Claeys, who worked with McDavid in the past, knows McDavid will make a great business and sales coach.
“Doug is an excellent team member, a real networker, capable of bringing out the best in himself and others to move the team forward ... He understands the little but important thrills it takes to bring new initiatives to success. His past expertise, combined with his innovative approach to new ideas, enables creative sustainable results for your team. Doug is simply a great personality to work with,” he said.
In addition to his professional experience, McDavid holds multiple patents in knowledge management, software chargeback and business modeling. His work in business development has been published in more than a dozen publications. Today he’s a member of a variety of professional organizations include the Board of Directors of the Business Architecture Society, the International Society of Service Innovation Professionals, and the International Society for Systems Sciences among others.
“I believe Doug was the best communicator I had the privilege to work with,” said Roy Roskilly, a longtime colleague of McDavid. “Doug’s communication skills (are) the key to his success … in building and leading strong teams, along with his relentless drive in achieving a large scale, high impact goal, which gave him the ability to prevail and succeed.”
