October 07, 2010 // Franchising.com // LAS VEGAS – Throughout his life, Keith Baldwin has been skilled and passionate at developing teams and getting people to reach their potential. Now, as he begins his career with ActionCOACH, Baldwin has the opportunity to take those skills and help business owners realize their dreams.
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.
Baldwin was unfamiliar with ActionCOACH at first, but once he learned about the company first hand at a "Discovery Day", he knew he found a business that fit his personality and aptitude.
Recently Baldwin said about his coming to ActionCOACH, "I'm excited to work with clients who want to go on the journey and develop their business and themselves, as well as opportunities for my own personal development."
Baldwin has a deep connection to the areas of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire he will be working in, so he knows what it takes for local businesses to succeed. He will take the expertise he has learned through a successful business career with an eye towards rebuilding the economic base of his community by partnering with ActionCOACH.
"I enjoy helping individuals achieve what they didn't think was possible and I never get over the feeling of pride I see in them, and feel myself, when they get there."
In addition to his business success, Baldwin is also an active member of his local church in Wigginton, York, where his wife is the Parish Administrator. He is also a member of the Chamber of Commerce for Leeds, York and North Yorkshire.
Baldwin's efforts will be focused on Yorkshire and Lincolnshire but he will look to work with any business he can service from his office in Haxby, York. Baldwin began his journey as an ActionCOACH in Las Vegas, Nevada where the ActionCOACH Global Office is located. Here he 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.
Keith Baldwin has the skills and knowledge to help businesses of all kinds and sizes. Now, with the resources of ActionCOACH behind him, Baldwin is sure to make a hugely positive impact on every business he works with.
