Medina, OH (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Today’s volatile economic landscape can act as a catalyst for business owners to seek solutions not only for basic survival but for advantages that keep their business a step ahead of the competition. Business coaching isn’t new, but recently has grown rapidly as a resource that is not only affordable but delivers a ROI that’s almost instantaneous in many cases.
The 2012 International Coach Federation Global Coaching Study reports that 80 percent of individuals have experienced a positive change in self-esteem and self-conﬁdence as a result of partnering with a professional coach. In recent years, business coaching has reached revenues of nearly $2 billion worldwide, evidence of the growing demand. And, business coaching in the Medina, Ohio area has made significant differences for clients who work with strategic business coach Mike Rao, President of The Growth Coach® of Northern Ohio.
In 2011, Shon Christy, president of Christy Creative in Akron, Ohio, retained Mike Rao as a business and sales coach. Christy explained, “Our objective was to position our firm for exponential growth in 2012. We can directly link Mike’s coaching process to successfully doubling our business during that time, and current projections point to doubling that again in the next year. Specifically, The Growth Coach process has helped us to become more efficient and effective in every area of our business.
“Not only has he helped us streamline the operations side of the business but he has been an excellent connector, guiding us to develop alliances with amazing strategic partners that have and continue to impact our business in a positive manner. We’re adding five to ten new clients a month, because we’ve learned to focus on what we do better than anyone and to not pursue directions that aren’t strong revenue streams for us. We’ve also learned to better leverage our staff resources and operate at maximum efficiency. Without doubt, the Growth Coach Strategic Mindset® process has been a tremendous asset to Christy Creative.”
Rao coaches his clients to be accountable and unleash their talents and potential in business management, sales, marketing, and relationship management. His advice is, “To be coachable, you must be willing to accept that change is difficult and the process will require you to be willing to stay focused on your objectives, no matter what.” Using a the Growth Coach Strategic Mindset process and incorporating state of the art behavioral analysis tools, Rao’s clients are able to gain greater fulfillment both in their business and personal lives.
Mark Dorman, president of Dorman Farrell, described the results of working with Rao as “nothing short of amazing.” Dozens of other small business owners in the area have benefited from Rao’s coaching expertise.
Mike Rao has over 26 years of experience in corporate America, including directing business operations for one of the largest chemical companies in the world. As President of the Growth Coach of Northern Ohio, he is positioned to provide his knowledge for on-going accountability and business mindset to businesses in the area.
