October 21, 2010 // Franchising.com // LAS VEGAS – Ed Gagliardi has enjoyed the journey that has given him the experience to take on his new role as an ActionCOACH franchise owner. Now it is time to take that experience and turn it into real results for businesses that work with ActionCOACH throughout southern Florida.
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.
ActionCOACH caught Gagliardi's eye because the company culture and overall business model fit both his experience and matched the goals he has planned for himself.
"I have 35 years of management and marketing experience. I've run smaller businesses within large corporations and this has provided me with a skill set and ability to grow any business, large or small," Gagliardi said recently.
"ActionCOACH provides the platform and culture to work with clients who want to learn and grow. Seeing clients' satisfaction when they have strong business growth results is personally very gratifying to me."
In addition to his business success, Gagliardi is a member of the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce, where he is a member of the Leads group. He also enjoys time with his family which includes four children and two grandchildren.
Gagliardi will be an ActionCOACH firm owner under Master Licensees Nick and Arcelia Dove. His firm will be located in South Florida, focusing on the Palm Beach and Broward County areas.
Gagliardi's journey as an ActionCOACH firm owner began in Las Vegas, Nevada where the ActionCOACH Global Office is located. Here he spent 10 days training with other new firm owners and 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.
Ed Gagliardi has a wealth of experience and talent to share as the newest member of the ActionCOACH team. He is looking forward to seeing firsthand how his clients can benefit from working with him. There is no doubt he will be a powerful resource for any business that works with ActionCOACH.
