FRANCHISEFOCUS INVESTMENT: FROM £6 9,000 Harnessing talent


ActionCOACH franchise partner Rob Pickering joins forces with a star employee coach


R


ob Pickering has always felt torn between the money available to work within large businesses


and the pull of being his own boss. Having moved swiftly from a computer programmer to managing his own team, he finally received his first management training when he was 27 years old. It was during his regular squash session that Rob was asked why he didn’t offer business coaching alongside his management consultancy work to make the recommendations happen. “It was this that led me to ActionCOACH.


From my initial contact, they weren’t salesy or pushy – they genuinely cared. Very early on in my discussions, they shared their 14 Points of Culture, and I thought if a company could live to this high standard of values, I had to be a part of it!” Rob is soon to celebrate a decade


as an ActionCOACH franchise partner, working with business owners in Reading. He recently stepped up to the new Firm Builder licence, where he focuses on a 10-year development plan in an exclusive territory of 10,000 businesses.


Nurturing talent “Part of that development includes building a team of employee business coaches, but the first of my employee coaches came through a much more organic process. Lisa Chaffey and I have worked together for almost as long as I’ve been an Action Coach. Her company used my coaching services and I used her marketing services, so we decided to join forces.” Lisa continued with her forte of


marketing and worked alongside the ActionCOACH team. But Rob had seen Lisa’s potential and invited her to attend as many ActionCOACH support events as possible. In October 2017, Lisa met with another Action Coach, Cassandra Bodington, and felt inspired to become an ActionCOACH employee coach. Lisa says: “After my training, I’d already

got three one-to-one clients. All those years attending conferences with Rob had paid off, as I was ready to start coaching by myself. Six weeks later, I launched my first ActionCLUB with 10 clients. My main focus was to introduce a group coaching environment that could benefit everyone. From my own personal experience as a client, I was passionate about delivering these as I knew they work.”


A rewarding role In her very short time as an employee coach, Lisa has many successes to be proud of.


“One client has got to a point where he


could take three months out of his business to climb Mount Everest! We worked on a strict one-to-one basis and he has since written a book and currently works just four hours a week on his business.” Lisa’s successes are not always client- based; she took home the title of UK Business Coach of the Year 2019 at ActionCOACH’s annual conference. “One of the most fulfilling moments has been building a strong community of over 30 ActionCLUB clients. It’s been amazing to see them all grow and flourish to the


point where they’re all achieving great things in both their business and personal lives. It makes me feel extremely proud to see them employing staff, collaborating with one another, referring business opportunities and becoming fans of what we do at ActionCOACH.” If you would like to build a strong team


to make a difference to business owners in your community, and you're the kind of person who: A) loves learning and developing themselves; B) has enjoyed success in their career or sport; and C) is willing to invest if they see substantial returns can be made...
