ActionCOACH Barb Kyes Has a Plan – and It's Working

May 28, 2008 // // - ActionCOACH, the world's number one business coaching firm, held its annual North American conference recently in Las Vegas. Included in the week-long agenda was an awards dinner to honor its highest performers. Selected for the company's Systems Award was Barb Kyes, an ActionCOACH firm owner from Pinellas County, Florida.

That Kyes achieved success after less than one year as a business coach is not surprising. Like every ActionCOACH, Kyes brought significant business experience and a passion for mentoring to her firm. Active in the regional business community, Kyes has chaired the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce's Entrepreneurial Academy Alumni Association and sat as a perennial judge for the Chamber's Small Business Awards. She has won several major community awards in recognition of her leadership in the community.

Originally trained as a healthcare professional, Kyes credits her decisiveness to the pressure of life-and-death situations in the hospital's ICU environment.

"The organization and attention to detail I learned in the acute care arena carried over when I left the hospital to start my own business. One successful business venture led to another, until I realized that my real talent was starting and growing businesses. As an ActionCOACH, I apply my proven strategies and management style within the framework of the company's business solutions to enable my clients to be more successful."

As a Coach with experience owning or operating small businesses, home-based companies, women-owned business, and non-profit organizations, Barb encourages entrepreneurs to take "one step at a time."

ActionCOACH is the world's number one business coaching firm, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries. To learn more, go to
