July 15, 2008 // Franchising.com // - Scott Baird is part of the first firm in Utah working with Master Licensee Kevin Alft.
This firm is located in Provo, Utah.
"While most of our clients will be coming from the Utah area, we will be taking advantage of opportunities in Texas, New Mexico and Idaho as well," he said.
Baird needed accreditation as a certified coach in gaining a large government contract and felt that by becoming an ActionCOACH, he will receive not only accreditation as a certified Business Coach but also the training, tools and products needed to fulfill the expectations of his current and potential client-base.
"I have worked with a number of Fortune 500 companies and have turned their businesses around from bankruptcy into industry leaders," he said.
In addition to writing three books on business, Baird has also created a product mix of tools, processes, services and training opportunities for business owners.
He has also had the opportunity to coach some of the leading executives in the business world.
"ActionCOACH's products will add more value and accountability to this effort. Many of my business clients are ready to add business coaching to the range of programs I have created for them," he said.
Baird believes that ActionCOACH is a professional, aggressive and focused company that has consistent messages at all levels of the organization.
"I am especially impressed by the strong support system of the company," he said.
The current trends in the business coaching industry helped strengthen Baird's decision to join ActionCOACH.
"Business coaching is the second fastest growing industry and ActionCOACH is the number one business coaching firm in the world; the decision was easy," he said.
A financial supporter of the Diabetes Foundation, Baird is actively involved with the Boy Scouts of America, both on a local and council level. He also runs a foundation called "Because We Care," which helps elementary schools set up and run after school programs.
A past committee president for Businesses Relations with the Provo/Orem Chamber, Baird is also an active member of ASTD and SHRM.
