DFW, TX (PRWEB) January 16, 2014
When Chris Day thinks about business and sales coaching, he goes back to his days as a certified flight instructor: it’s about guiding the students and helping them learn how to look forward and then deal with inevitable “bumps in the road” – not about taking control.
And that’s how Day is planning to help clients through his new business, The Growth Coach DFW, Texas.
The Growth Coach, the #1 business and sales coaching franchise in the country for 2013, according to Entrepreneur Magazine, is dedicated to helping business leaders, small business owners, sales people, self-employed professionals and others find success at work and balance in life.
“A good coach should not be there to run your business for you or give you all the answers without discovering some of them yourself. Being a pilot taught me two things that play out over and over in setting a business strategy. First, know where you’re going and have a plan for the path and, second, repetitive processes are required to learn almost everything,” Day said. “With The Growth Coach’s Strategic Mindset® process, our clients will be taught to plan those critical business paths and put processes in place so they can focus on the most important things with the company and in life.”
Before opening The Growth Coach DFW, Day served in a variety of sales and engineering management roles for multiple international companies in positions such as VP Engineering, Director of Operations, Global Sales Director and Global P&L Director.
“I’ve always been clear with myself and with others that I’ve worked for that my goal was to one day own my own business. Until 2013, I thought it was going to have something to do with manufacturing and selling the products we made, but nothing seemed to fit and I just couldn’t get excited about the prospects. Then I found The Growth Coach, with their proven processes and I realized that this business was tailored to my more natural skill set,” Day said.
“New business formations and small business have always been exciting for me. I have several friends who live in the area who own small businesses of great variety. I couldn’t continue to ignore the sheer energy I got out of talking with them, about the issues they’ve been faced with and of course, seeing the solutions that have worked,” he added. “Beyond business - I beat melanoma skin cancer in 2011, which was my 'facing reality' moment and taught me to seek more balance in life. That balance is part of what The Growth Coach aims to help clients find.”
The Growth Coach was founded in 2003, but the company’s leaders have a 20 year track record of successful business coaching. Recently, the franchise 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, owners also provide one-to-one coaching, remote coaching delivered via phone and web, and special projects.
Day is especially excited about helping small business owners is his community learn to better sell their products and services, especially given how combined successes are sure to strengthen the business culture in the Dallas Fort Worth.
“Small business is good for the community. And, the DFW metroplex is growing rapidly in so many positive ways that this seemed like the perfect time for me to get involved in helping business owners realize greater success. I’m truly excited to start contributing more and giving back locally in a way I haven’t been able to do so far in my career,” Day said.
Dave Lewis, Director of Metals at Superior Essex, know from experience that Day will be a great business coach.
“Chris has expertise not only on the technical side of the business, but also on customer relations and negotiations. He spent significant time working on the account, understanding the needs of our business and supplying (our company) with a product that would perform in our systems,” Lewis said. “What I respect about Chris is the honesty and integrity he brings to the contract negotiations.”
