Aundre Pace Brings Corporate Leadership Background to New Growth Coach Franchise

The Growth Coach, the #1 business and sales coaching franchise in the country last year according to Entrepreneur Magazine, opens in Plainfield, IL.

Plainfield, IL (PRWEB) December 02, 2014 - For the last two-and-a-half decades, Aundre Pace has been coaching, guiding and helping his employees with personal and professional growth. Now Pace is looking forward to turning that passion into a business with his new franchise, The Growth Coach of Plainfield and Naperville.

The Growth Coach, the #1 business and sales coaching franchise in the country last year according to Entrepreneur Magazine, is dedicated to helping business leaders, small business owners, sales people and self-employed professionals find success at work and balance in life. Growth Coaches offer workshops, one-to-one coaching services, remote coaching delivered via phone and web, and coaching for special projects as well as alternative financing, business valuation services, web coaching, sales mapping and more. Pace's local Growth Coach franchise will serve Plainfield, Naperville, Lisle and the surrounding communities.

"I have spent more than 24 years in leadership roles with increasing responsibilities and, within that time, most of my experience has been helping to coach, guide, and influence the people that worked with me to be the very best that they can be. Even during my brief stint in human resources it seemed as though I still spent the majority of my time coaching those that I supported from afar," Pace said. "After all that time working in the corporate world I decided that it was a great time to do what I love most – coaching people towards their success – without the corporate moniker, and The Growth Coach provides the opportunity for me to do that and own my own business."

Pace's father was a career marine, so Pace grew up in a military household. His background taught him the importance of hard work and self-discipline. He has spent the last 24 years with Wal-Mart, Starbucks and Mars leading multi-unit organizations at the executive level and that has given him the opportunity to impact thousands of people throughout his career.

The Growth Coach was an attractive franchise for Pace because it will allow him to utilize his professional background and passion for helping people to enhance the lives of business leaders and business owners in his community.

"The Growth Coach truly meets my calling. I was searching for the opportunity to do what I love and my family and I agreed that The Growth Coach fit the bill for my desired quest to coach and develop people for long term success. I'm looking forward to bringing that to The Growth Coach of Plainfield and Naperville," Pace said.

Demetrius Barbee, who has known Pace for the last seven years and worked with him at Starbucks, said Pace is a team player who will be a great champion for his clients.

"I've observed him coaching up, down and side-ways in various corporate settings and Aundre consistently coaches to win. He is a very energetic, authentic and strategic leader. He effortlessly incorporates leadership and communication principles then layers on life lessons coupled with the individual's needs and objectives to achieve the goal. He understands the heart of a coach is always about helping the individual evolve and grow into his/her best self," Barbee said.

Outside of his career, Pace, who has lived in the Plainfield area for more than a decade, also coached both of his sons in baseball and football during their younger years.

The Growth Coach was founded in 2003, but the company's leaders have a 20 year track record of successful business coaching. Recently, the franchise was included in Bond's "Top 100 Franchises" and has been recognized in Entrepreneur Magazine's "Franchise 500," "Best of the Best" and "Top Home-Based Business" listings.
