Las Vegas, NV,--(PR.com)-- Businesses rise and fall. Cycles come and go. But the cream always rises to the top.
Solid companies overcome economic challenges and turn them into opportunities, and ActionCOACH - the world's number one business and executive coaching firm – has been doing just that.
As a result, it has been recording exceptional growth despite the weakening economy.
"Business coaching remains a growth industry and ActionCOACH Business Coaches are not looking back," founder and CEO of ActionCOACH Brad Sugars said. "With record earnings, they have been helping small and medium sized business owners, who are even more susceptible to this uncertainty, see opportunity in the midst of the present crisis."
Most recently, Business Coaches from three regions of the globe were recognized and honored for their performance in 2008 with the coveted "Coach of the Year" award.
"The performance of our coaches in these trying times has been outstanding," Sugars said. "The help they are providing in this economy to business owners is invaluable and we would like to see a coach in every business – so that businesses don't succumb to the pressures of the economy and are in a position to overcome these tough times with relative ease."
During the company's Asia Pacific conference held in Queensland, Australia, Bruce Campbell (who was also the first coach to have banked "Diamond" level earnings) received the "Coach of the Year" award for the Asia Pacific region.
"I have done business in 31% of the world's countries," he said. "I use ActionCOACH strategies to complement my diverse business background bringing great results to my clients and their businesses – recession or no recession."
The North American conference, which was held in Las Vegas in March, saw ActionCOACH Earl Kemper come out a winner. A Diamond Coach, Kemper, dismisses the recession.
"I feel this 'recession' has become a media-driven 'state of mind' and with the support of a Business Coach and the implementation of ActionCOACH principles, this time will prove to be a temporary blip in history," he said. "Because of this outlook, I have positioned my clients to start taking advantage of this market, and many are actively looking for business acquisition opportunities."
Finally, Michael Shinnick from Ireland bagged the highest honor at the EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa) Conference held in London.
Like his peers at ActionCOACH, Shinnick also believes this economic environment presents an excellent opportunity for business owners.
"This downturn is a good time for business owners to review the structure of their business and adapt their current structure to not only survive this recession but to also gain serious market share," he said. "Business owners have had a very tough time over the past few months and are now crying out for positive focus and direction. It is a fantastic privilege to be able to offer such a rewarding service."
Every crisis is an opportunity to regain balance and by concentrating on the positive, companies are able to ride the winds of change and endure the toughest economic times.
By adapting this positive mindset, ActionCOACH Business Coaches are also helping their small business clients do the same in order to take advantage of these rough times.
ActionCOACH is the world's number one business coaching and executive coaching firm, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries.
