Virtual Element Will Supplement the Business and Sales Coaching Franchise Curriculum

The Growth Coach’s invaluable virtual platform will tap into this trend and reach workers where they are while making use of video conferencing that has now become second nature to working professionals.

The Growth Coach, a global business coaching franchise organization, will maintain virtual coaching as an additional part of its curriculum, based on lessons learned from the pandemic.

The Growth Coach, which is part of Strategic Franchising, is the largest provider of affordable group coaching workshops, and offers group and one-on-one coaching for sales professionals, managers, management teams, self-employed professionals and more.

“We added virtual coaching out of necessity when the pandemic altered the way we all were doing business across the country,” said Lisa Hudson, President of The Growth Coach. “We’ve found it to be very effective and realized this is something that will continue to be useful for business leaders and entrepreneurs moving forward.”

Several companies across the country have already announced plans to allow employees to work from home even after the pandemic ends. Global Workplace Analytics estimates 25 to 30 percent of American workers will be working remotely a few days a week by the end of this year.

The Growth Coach’s invaluable virtual platform will tap into this trend and reach workers where they are while making use of video conferencing that has now become second nature to working professionals.

While in-person coaching will still be the preferred method once pandemic restrictions ease, the online platform will provide unprecedented flexibility to those interested in investing in a Growth Coach franchise.

“The mix of in-person and virtual coaching will help our franchisees decide what works best for each individual client,” said Hudson. “I think this will help us increase our revenue stream and diversify our customer base. I am excited to see how this supplement to our business helps us grow in the future.”

With more than 40 locations currently, The Growth Coach plans to add 20 new franchise locations in 2021. To learn more about the franchise opportunities available with The Growth Coach, please visit
