July 20, 2010 // Franchising.com // LAS VEGAS – A certified life coach with 25 years of experience in the corporate world, Susan Davidson knew she found the opportunity of a lifetime when she came across an ad for ActionCOACH in her local newspaper.
ActionCOACH is the world's leader in business and executive coaching. When Brad Sugars, Chairman and Founder, started the company in 1993, it was still in its nascent stages. By franchising the company in 1997, Sugars helped business coaching become more mainstream turning it into the second fastest growing category behind Information Technology. ActionCOACH specializes in coaching small to medium size business as well as executive teams and group coaching.
Susan Davidson's business background goes back to the beginning. Her family owned a business in the auto industry which they successfully sold in 2008, thanks to Davidson's coaching acumen. After earning degrees from Penn State University and New Jersey Institute of Technology, Davidson moved to the corporate world.
Over her 25 years in corporate America, Davidson has worked for several mid-size and large corporations. Her background includes IT management, organizational development, systems and process development, project management and sales. She has worked from some of the biggest names in corporate America like General Dynamics, General Electric, MBNA America, and Sun Microsystems.
Davidson began shifting her focus to her new found passion of coaching in 2003 and has been a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach since 2004. Since the completion of her training, she has been working as Life Coach with individuals in the pursuit of their life dreams and goals. Now, with ActionCOACH, Davidson knows she has the tools to take her coaching to another level.
"As a Coach, my passion has been to help individuals create their best life. ActionCOACH is a proven system of working with small business owners to ensure that they are living the life of their dreams," Davidson said recently.
Davidson found ActionCOACH in the newspaper, but she knew it was the business for her when she took a closer look at the company. "The proven success of the ActionCOACH system and the worldwide community of business coaches greatly influenced my decision to join the team."
Davidson's experience and skills will benefit her clients as she embarks on this new career with ActionCOACH. "I love new challenges," she said, "And my tenure in a sales organization and as a project manager have provided me the opportunity to hone the skills to assess situations quickly, develop a plan to achieve stated goals and the insight to recognize when the plan requires adjustment."
Davidson continued, "My coaching experience enables me to view each client as an individual and work with them in the direction they wish to go. As a daughter of an entrepreneur I understand the challenges, joys and pressures associated with business ownership and I bring this understanding into every encounter with a client." In addition to her career achievements, Davidson works with a number of charities including the Cancer Foundation, American Diabetes Association and the National MS Society. She is also a member of the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce and will soon be a member of the Wilmington Women in Business.
Davidson is excited to start her new adventure with ActionCOACH. She lives in Delaware, where she works with Eric Simmons and his ActionCOACH franchise. She will base her operations from Newark Delaware while focusing on businesses in the northern Delaware area.
Davidson will begin her journey as a business coach in Las Vegas, Nevada where the ActionCOACH Global Office is located. Here she spent 10 days training with other new business coaches from around the world. They learned the ins and outs of ActionCOACH, how to run a business the ActionCOACH way, branding, systems and techniques, as well as how to apply their knowledge to any business and much more.
Susan Davidson brings experience and talent to the ActionCOACH team in Delaware. With her strong business background and coaching skills, she can add a layer of support to any business that works with ActionCOACH.
