Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
Ahmed Abdulbaqi always wanted to be a leader. From his early dreams of being a ship captain to a 13-year career as a pilot and experience as a business owner, Abdulbaqi found himself striving for a career that would allow him to be part of a team while taking initiative toward success.
Now Abdulbaqi is taking the next step: helping others be great leaders by launching his own franchise business – The Growth Coach of Ann Arbor.
The Growth Coach is the only pure business and sales coaching franchise dedicated to help business owners, managers, management teams, sales professionals and others to find success in business and balance in life.
“Coaching allows me to express my natural talents to motivate and inspire people to do what they want to do and to achieve their goals and dreams,” Abdulbaqi said. “Coaching is my passion. It connects me with people in a way that is constructive to both of us. My mission is to partner with clients throughout their journey toward achieving success and fulfillment.”
Before becoming a Growth Coach, Abdulbaqi led a flight crew as a pilot, studied finance and investing, and owned his own business consulting firm in Saudi Arabia. When he moved back to the states, he decided he wanted to launch his own coaching franchise with a priority on helping business leaders find more time for life.
Ghid Abolohom, whom Abdulbaqi has coached, said Abdulbaqi’s approach is a provoking and motivating one.
“Ahmed connected deeply with me. He focused on who I am as an individual and, from there, he worked with me on figuring out what I wanted,” Abolohom said. “By raising that awareness, I found my own solutions and made my own steps to making the shifts I needed. Ahmed is a good coach who listens beyond the words and responds in a supportive manner.”
Another client, Susan Ehman, has been working with Abdulbaqi since March.
“Ahmed displays a genuine concern, awareness and interest in his clients. He is totally engaged during our coaching sessions and very successfully uses all the tools available to him. I look forward to many more positively eventful coaching sessions with Ahmed and am very certain all his clients will feel the same,” she said.
In addition to traditional one-on-one coaching services, The Growth Coach offers group workshops, professional recertification credits, strategic manager programs, sales mastery classes and much more.
“The Growth Coach provides me with the opportunity to touch the lives of business people and others and to be their guide to a more fulfilling life. Business is great, but life is greater,” he said.
Abdulbaqi’s Growth Coach franchise includes Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County. For additional information, visit http://www.TheGrowthCoach.com, email A.Abdulbaqi(at)thegrowthcoach(dot)com, or call 734-353-6488.
