November 16, 2011 // Franchising.com // LAS VEGAS – In his career as a military trainer, Andrew Van Horn developed the leadership skills and training techniques to succeed in virtually any industry. It is fortunate for the business owners in and around Lexington, Kentucky that he chose to use his skills and aptitude to become an ActionCOACH Business Coach.
ActionCOACH is the world’s leader in business and executive coaching. Brad Sugars, Chairman and Founder of ActionCOACH, started the company in 1993, when the concept of business coaching was still in its infancy.
By franchising the company in 1997, Sugars helped business coaching become a more mainstream industry. ActionCOACH specializes in coaching small to medium sized businesses as well as executive teams and group coaching.
“For me coaching is a natural extension of training,” Van Horn said. “I still get to teach and train business owners, but now I have to hold them accountable for results and see the improvements that are being made. I find this lasting impact the most rewarding aspect of coaching and training.”
Van Horn’s commitment to his community and his family, and the faith he has in his ability to positively affect those around him are certain to make him an outstanding resource to the businesses in and around Lexington, Kentucky.
“Becoming a coach is about the challenges. I have always been tested, in many ways. It is that testing, that room for personal growth that makes me excited to help local businesses earn more from their efforts. Plus I get to spend more time at home with my family than I did in the military.”
Van Horn is a franchise owner in Lexington, Kentucky. He began his journey as an ActionCOACH Business Coach 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.
