Bob Paden is Growth Coach’s Rookie of the Year

Bob PadenThe Growth Coach, the international business and sales coaching franchise, is pleased to announce that Bob Paden, the owner of The Growth Coach of North Indianapolis, has been recognized with the company’s Rookie of the Year Award. The award was presented at The Growth Coach’s national conference on February 4, 2020.

“Bob's passion for helping business owners and executives think differently about their business has led to a great year. As a Growth Coach, Bob quickly began working with clients to focus on becoming strategic and building processes to grow their business rather than being reactionary. I am proud to call Bob our Rookie of the Year and I’m looking forward to seeing him continue to grow his business,” The Growth Coach President Lisa Hudson said.

“I want to thank each and every person who has helped me succeed since opening The Growth Coach – my family, my clients and my networks in Boone and Hamilton counties as well as throughout the Indy Metro area. I attribute my quick growth to their support and to my focus on listening to the needs, desires and visions of my clients and working with them to solve problems,” Paden said.

As a Growth Coach, Paden 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.

Although his award calls him a Rookie, Paden has been in the coaching business for a long time. Paden is a graduate of Purdue University and, before becoming a business and sales coach, he worked for global corporations including Rolls-Royce, Qantas, Cummins, QuEST in various technology and leadership roles. He launched a business strategy and supply chain consulting company in 2008 and in 2014, was tapped to help launch a downtown Indianapolis-based engineering outsourcing office with QuEST-Global. He grew the business to a full build-out in downtown Indianapolis with 70 employees locally and another 70 globally. In March of 2017, he decided he was ready to go into business coaching full time through TIER321 LLC. He bought his Growth Coach franchise from former coach – and now The Growth Coach president – Lisa Hudson in the summer of 2019.

The Growth Coach is unique because the focus isn’t just on the business, but the wellbeing of the owners, leaders and employees. They are more than just numbers and their mental wellness, health, focus and growth matters. We are working on more than just business growth, but growing a business by improving the business owner’s knowledge, actions and leadership, which then flows downward and outward to the community,” Paden said.

“I want to thank Lisa Hudson personally – I met her more than a year ago and she, along with The Growth Coach, truly changed my life and the lives of my clients. Without her leadership and her team, helping business owners like we do would not be possible,” he added.
