Las Vegas, NV, --(PR.com)-- ActionCOACH Warren Coughlin recently added executive coaching to his business coaching qualifications so as to bring the agility of the entrepreneurs he coaches into the sophisticated and structured corporate environment.
Coughlin is a certified ActionCOACH Business Coach and has won many accolades and awards for his work in the small-to-medium sized business sector. As soon as ActionCOACH announced its new executive coaching program, Coughlin jumped at the chance as he was seeking business growth and new opportunities.
"I love helping smart and ambitious individuals like those looking to advance in larger organizations and feel the wisdom and the spirit of entrepreneurship will add incredible value in the corporate environment," he said. "The discipline of executive coaching will now help me achieve that."
While running his highly successful business coaching practice, Coughlin was asked to help senior executives on several occasions in dealing with issues such as career development, leadership, and organizational development. Also, given his background as an actor and theater director; he has helped them in improving their presentation skills.
During his previous corporate consulting sessions, Coughlin was surprised by the fact that several fundamental skills, concepts and attitudes were not adequately considered by many large organizations.
"People tend to be very task-focused. They often lose their connection to their own goals, they fail to cultivate their own leadership skills and they are frequently disconnected from the company's overall objectives," he said. "Executive coaching helps executives maintain their enthusiasm, achieve their goals, get the best out of their teams, work effectively with their own leadership, achieve results for the company and advance their careers."
Coughlin sees executive coaching as more focused on leadership issues, process and teams than on marketing and branding.
"In executive coaching, there is a greater focus on leadership and, for lack of a better term, on navigating politics," he said. "The issues can be more complex and the discussions may sometimes require a greater level of sophistication. There is likely to be much less focus on marketing and branding - and much more on leadership, process and team. But conceptually, the coaching relationship and dynamics are very similar."
Coughlin is both optimistic and excited about ActionCOACH diversifying into executive coaching.
"I believe the introduction of entrepreneurial agility into large organizations is desperately needed in Canada," he said. "I'd like to think ActionCOACH is uniquely positioned to become prominent in the executive coaching field because of the breadth of experience among our coaches, our ability to deliver across the world as well as our collective passion and energy for helping businesses succeed."
He is excited about this new role, in which he sees tremendous earning potential and the opportunity of gaining multiple engagements with a single corporation.
Winner of the Canadian Coach of the Year award, Global and North American ActionMAN awards, Coughlin has also gained recognition as being the top performing coach in Canada.
ActionCOACH is the world's number one business coaching and executive coaching firm, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries.
