/24-7PressRelease/ - LAS VEGAS, NV, July 24, 2008 - Jean-Louis Sabin is an ActionCOACH based in Paris, France and won a prestigious European Award of "Best improved Master Licensee of the Year" award during ActionCOACH's annual UK/European and African conference, held recently in London.
Jean-Louis attended the Audencia international business school before starting a career with multi-nationals such as Procter & Gamble, IBM, and Sara Lee, where he rose to become Vice-President Europe for the bakery branch EuroDough .
Jean-Louis came to ActionCOACH in 2005, becoming the first ActionCOACH in the country.
"I saw in ActionCOACH an opportunity to help business owners develop and succeed," he says. "I thought that it was a fantastic concept and was proud to bring ActionCOACH to France, where I knew it would thrive."
He is now the Master Licensee for North and Paris where 7 of his coaches are operating. As well as being an active coach himself, he is concerned with attracting other business owners and senior executives to a role with ActionCOACH.
Jean-Louis's clients come from the Paris and Northern France area and have a wide variety of backgrounds, from restaurant owners to solicitors. He finds that the most common problems his clients face are related to money, time and personnel.
"My clients tend to spend too many hours on their business," he says. "They have the usual problem of being unable to pull back from the day-to-day operations and they fail to spend enough time developing their business for the future. They also tend to have poor financial systems in place and are not developing their teams properly. I help them implement efficient strategies and systems that can allow them to take a more hands-off approach to their business, enabling them to plan for the future and enjoy life more. Successful business coaching is an ongoing process and when my clients stick with me then I can help them transform their business. Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than turning an ailing business around and seeing the owner begin to enjoy life again."
Jean-Louis is excited about the future of ActionCOACH in France and has ambitions to increase the amount of ActionCOACH Business Coaches in his territory and in France to 100 in five years time. He wants ActionCOACH to be able to help every progressive business in Northern France.
Outside work, Jean-Louis has a busy social life and likes to play the acoustic guitar and travel. His overriding ambition is to help others, be that on a personal or business level.
"I like to help people succeed," he says. "I enjoy building relationships with others and teaching them how to use their talents and abilities to get to the top."
Jean Louis's prescription for success?
"The key to success in business is to believe in what you do and have fun doing it. If you are passionate, then you can do anything you put your mind to."
