Manassas, VA, April 15, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Gerry Peters has been coaching and mentoring people for more than 30 years. Along the way he discovered his entrepreneurial spirit to help business owners while building his own business and the best way to take advantage of both his skills and passion was to become an ActionCOACH.
ActionCOACH is the world's leader in business and executive coaching. When Brad Sugars, Chairman and Founder, started the company in 1993, the field of business coaching was in its early 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.
Peters' path to becoming an ActionCOACH is unique. He spent 20 years in the U.S. Marine Corps as an Aviation Supply Officer, before spending the last six years as a Senior Program Manager for two custom software development companies. His experiences leading people and leading organizational change will certainly help Peters with advising businesses.
"I helped reengineer many different kinds of organizations for efficiency, working to build effective, productive teams," Peters said. "I have the discipline and accountability that encourages knowledge retention and high functionality of those with whom I work. I think these factors will really help me in this field."
Now that he knows the power of the ActionCOACH methodology, the only regret for Peters is that he didn't join ActionCOACH sooner.
"There are probably hundreds of businesses that could've been saved from bankruptcy or closure if they'd just worked with ActionCOACH. I am positive I can help businesses prepare and take advantage of the opportunities they obtain while growing a profitable bottom line during the economic recovery."
When he's not coaching businesses, Peters is a member of the Software Engineering Institute, Army Navy Club, Naval Academy Alumni and Naval Postgraduate School Alumni Associations, two Parent Teacher Associations and Booster Club, Knights of Columbus, Men at Malvern Retreat House, All Saints Parrish and a charter member of the Prince William County Chamber of Commerce where he now serves on several committees. He is also actively involved in coaching two soccer teams and serving on the Board of Directors for the Ben Lomond Swim Team and Northern Virginia Soccer Club.
Peters is a franchise owner with his office located in Manassas, Virginia, where he will help businesses located throughout Prince William County. His Master Licensee is Sheri Winesett.
Peters 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 and franchise owners 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.
ActionCOACH Virginia is currently recruiting coaches to join their team. Contact Sheri Winesett at (703) 881-7768 or email@example.com for more information.
