Why 2018 is the Year of The Growth Coach Franchise

A growing economy means significant opportunity for B2B franchises

The past year has been pretty great for The Growth Coach, as more entrepreneurs are turning to our business and sales coaching franchise to further their careers and join the $11 billion coaching industry. And 2018 is shaping up to be an even bigger year for our group coaching franchise.

“We’ve welcomed dozens of new franchise owners and prospects to The Growth Coach family from cities across the country, and they’ve all got one thing in common,” says Ray Fabik, Brand President for The Growth Coach. “They all understand how important business and sales coaching can be to helping owners and managers navigate business growth and balance lifestyles. Many of them saw it in their own careers in the corporate world, and now they’re seeing the changes they’re helping make in the lives of each of their clients. The Growth Coach is a transformative business, and that message is really getting out there now more than ever.”

The Growth Coach is an industry-leading business coaching franchise, established in more than 150 markets in the United States and abroad. Our business coaching system eliminates the barriers that prevent smaller operations from gaining the benefits of coaching — our proprietary coaching system is delivered in a group setting where owners, managers and salespeople meet quarterly to work through our effective management, sales and interpersonal coaching programs. Since our founding in 1992, our coaches have helped thousands of small business owners achieve their personal and professional goals. Now in the midst of one of our biggest expansions ever, The Growth Coach franchise is looking for entrepreneurs and business leaders in a host of smaller cities and suburban business centers. Here are just a few reasons that 2018 will be a great year to become a part of The Growth Coach.

The Growth Coach programs help transform leaders

Consider the mission of a business coach – to help business and sales professionals achieve their goals. Maybe they want to grow sales or are having difficulty balancing the demands of an expanding staff. That’s where The Growth Coach franchise excels.

“I hear all the time clients say to their coaches, ‘I’m not managing my business. It’s managing me,’” says Growth Coach founder Dan Murphy. “They get into The Growth Coach program, they start working through their personal assessments and listing their challenges and goals, and suddenly, they start seeing a path out of the weeds. By the time they’ve completed the program, they’re managing the business again and their work-life balance is restored.”

As businesses across the country grow and expand, time and performance demands placed on managers and owners increase. Businesses are turning to coaching to help see them through these busy periods, and The Growth Coach’s group coaching model opens up the power of coaching to the 28 million small- and medium-sized businesses that otherwise can’t afford it.

The Growth Coach franchise supports a much larger market

Traditional coaching franchises that focus on providing one-on-one coaching face two significant hurdles. First, the coach’s business is severely limited by the number of hours they can work. Second, coaching can be prohibitively expensive. The Growth Coach changes all of that, as Ray explains.

“Our unique, group coaching settings make coaching more affordable for business owners and managers, and it means the coach can take on more clients – many time more than a traditional coaching franchise,” Ray says. “The result is a robust clientele from a broad spectrum of industries and businesses, all of whom bring their experiences, their perspectives, and their expertise to bear.”

Ray and Dan both liken the group coaching experience to a board of directors. Group members are accountable to their group for the decisions they make in their businesses, and they seek advice from them – benefits typically only found in the largest companies.

Coaching is a vital service in virtually any economy

When the economy is booming, coaches can help business leaders manage growth. During economic downturns, though, savvy business leaders turn to coaches to help them navigate the challenges posed by shrinking margins.

“We’ve been around for a long time, and what we see is that The Growth Coach performs well in both boom economies and recessions,” Dan says. “Clients know their coach can help them grow, and they also understand that they have to make good decisions as their business contracts. Coaching helps them achieve consistent results and stay on track to reach goals, both personal and economic.”

The result is a robust business that performs well in almost any economic condition. It’s a great time to become a leader in your local business community with The Growth Coach franchise.
