ActionCOACH USA and Canada CEO Named Finalist for Coveted Stevie Award

Jodie Shaw recognized among elite businesswomen, honored by nomination.

October 28, 2010 // // LAS VEGAS – It has been a banner year at ActionCOACH and the success that the company has experienced has been recognized with ActionCOACH USA and Canada CEO Jodie Shaw being named a Finalist for a Stevie Award in the category of "Best Executive in the Service Industry" (for companies with up to 100 employees).

ActionCOACH is the world's leader in business and executive coaching, and Shaw has led ActionCOACH USA and Canada to an incredibly busy and successful 2010.

Among the achievements she has been directly involved with or coordinated are a redesign of the company's website; the introduction of ActionCOACH's first ever 17 Week/ 7 Point Guarantee and the company's Coaching for a Cause Program (designed to bring business coaching principles to non-profit organizations).

She was also directly involved in organizing ActionCOACH Founder and Chairman Brad Sugars' world-wide Business is Booming Tour.

Besides the successful completion of those important projects, Shaw has also overseen the growth of ActionCOACH, which has now expanded into 32 countries around the world.

The challenges of overseeing a truly multi-national franchisor means there is never a slow day for Shaw and her team, but not only does she enjoy challenges, she thrives on them.

"One of the things I like best about my position is the constant, fast pace. The work never stops and that is when I am functioning at my best. Work is always exciting to me and a big reason is that there are always new challenges," she said.

"Sometimes the office is like a soap opera, sometimes a rugby match, but one thing that never changes is the way I approach what needs to be accomplished and I truly believe my team responds to that approach. I think that's why we are able to accomplish so much".

Thanks to her no-nonsense approach and ability to get to the heart of any challenges facing her business, Shaw is truly a CEO to emulate. She embodies hard work and the passion she has for her career is unrivaled and filters down naturally to her team.

"Being nominated for this award with other great candidates is truly incredible," Shaw said, "And winning would be an honor for not only myself, but the entire ActionCOACH community all over the world."

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 about ActionCOACH and Coaching for a Cause, go to or
