October 07, 2010 // Franchising.com // LAS VEGAS – Malcolm Upton has made his mark on the world as a member of the United States Air Force and a business owner and operator, but he's sure to make an even bigger impact in his new role as a business coach with ActionCOACH.
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.
Upton thought ActionCOACH was just another consulting firm until he looked closer. "ActionCOACH is primarily focused on building skill in the business owner, not doing it for them. ActionCOACH is passionate about applying their systems to themselves, so there is none of that 'do as I say, not as I do' mentality so prevalent in consulting."
Upton has called the Fort Worth area home since 1998, so he has a deep connection to the area. He will take the expertise he has learned through a successful military and business career and help rebuild the economic base of his community by partnering with ActionCOACH franchise owner Stephen Marino.
"I've been coaching people on how to analyze and improve their business for my entire professional career. ActionCOACH greatly expands the areas where I can help business owners achieve their dreams."
In addition to his business success, Upton is also an active member of the Northwest Tarrant Chamber of Commerce and the Top Producers Network of Fort Worth. With the Tarrant Chamber of Commerce, Upton is also a member of the Leads and Leader Network as well as an Ambassador for the Chamber.
Upton will focus his efforts primarily in Northwest Tarrant County but will look to work with business throughout the Fort Worth area. Upton began his journey as an ActionCOACH firm owner 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.
With a wealth of experience from a long and successful professional career and the discipline of a military background, Malcolm Upton will be a fantastic resource for businesses in and around Tarrant County. With the ActionCOACH team behind him, Upton knows success is imminent.
ActionCOACH is the world's number one business coaching and executive coaching firm, with more than 1,000 offices in 32 countries. To learn more, go to actioncoach.com.
