BEL AIR, MD. (PRWEB) JULY 16, 2018

Mark Ford has always valued his role as a coach, both in business and in athletics. So when the opportunity to move into full-time business and sales coaching arose, he jumped at the chance. Now Ford is pleased to announce the launch of his new business and sales coaching company, The Growth Coach of Harford County.

The Growth Coach is the largest provider of affordable group coaching workshops in the nation, but coaches also offer group and one-on-one coaching for sales professionals, managers, management teams, self-employed professionals and more through a wide variety of programs through three industry-leading series – their Foundational Series, Fundamental Series and Fast Forward Series. The Growth Coach’s mission is to help business leaders build more successful business and more balanced lives. The Growth Coach of Harford County serves the greater Harford County area as well as some of Baltimore County in Maryland.

“In all of my roles, no matter what my title has been, my focus has been on developing my team and supporting them. Over the years I’ve earned the nickname Coach, partially because of my love for athletics, but also because of the effort I put into training my staff members and then putting them into positions where they can be successful. In some ways, it’s a lot like playing sports. Everyone has different strengths and, once you find someone’s strengths and help them amplify those strengths, they can be extremely successful. I’m looking forward to using that same philosophy to help small business owners, managers and other company leaders as a Growth Coach,” Ford said.

As a Growth Coach, Ford is certified in The Strategic Mindset coaching process, which adheres to the standards, practices and policies that the International Coaching Federation has set forth in their Code of Professional Standards and Ethics. The company’s landmark Strategic Mindset Process is so effective that it comes with a money-back guarantee.

Prior to becoming a Growth Coach, Ford built his career in sales, management, staff training, team development and business planning. He spent more than 25 years in the pharmaceutical industry. He has been known for building high-performing sales teams throughout his career. In his last role with Shire GI, he led a team of eight sales specialists who became the top-performing team in the business unit. Prior to that, he worked as a District Sales Manager for Altana Pharma and Savage Laboratories. He has a bachelor’s degree in Communications from the State University of New York at Albany.

“The Growth Coach is unique because it allows me to combine my own experience and my passion for coaching with the Growth Coach’s exciting, proven coaching method and materials. I want to see my clients through to success – not just give them a few suggestions and walk away – and The Growth Coach empowers me to do that by focusing on accountability, progress and continuous improvement,” Ford said.

The Growth Coach, founded in Cincinnati, Ohio, sold its first franchise in 2003, but its leaders have a successful 20-year track record of helping business leaders find success and balance. Today the business and sales coaching franchise is in more than 100 markets worldwide. The Growth Coach was included in Bond’s “Top 100 Franchises” and recognized in Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Franchise 500” and “Best of the Best,” in USA Today and has been featured on FOX, CBS and NBC.
