New programs are tailor-made to help big and small businesses throughout Wisconsin

LAS VEGAS – In her role as an ActionCOACH Business Coach, Susan Thomson has helped businesses throughout Wisconsin grow more profitable while helping business owners build profitable, commercial enterprises that work…without them. Now Thomson’s firm is adding programs to help executives in larger businesses grow more stream-lined, efficient and, of course, profitable.

Executive coaching is different from the usual business coaching that ActionCOACH does because it focuses on larger companies and their leadership. By creating stronger leaders for these companies, Executive Coaches help the companies grow more profitably, providing jobs for the local economy.

“This advanced training and certification as an Executive Coach gives us more tools to work with,” Thomson said. “No matter how big, how complicated the management structure, or how global the businesses, we’re already seeing some pretty exciting results from executives and teams in these new executive coaching programs.”

“Susan is a terrific coach who has made a huge impact on her clients in her career as an ActionCOACH Business Coach,” Founder and Chairman of ActionCOACH, Brad Sugars, said. “By adding our licensed executive coaching programs, her firm is bringing some phenomenal resources to mid-market and large businesses. Her focus will be as direct as it is with all of her clients – these are not cookie cutter programs.”

ActionCOACH is the world’s leader in business and executive coaching. When Brad Sugars, Chairman and Founder, started the company in 1993, the concept of business coaching was still in its infancy. By franchising the company in 1997, Sugars helped business coaching become more mainstream, turning it into the second fastest growing category behind Information Technology. ActionCOACH specializes in coaching small to medium sized businesses as well as executives and teams.

ActionCOACH is the world’s number one business coaching and executive coaching firm, with more than 1,000 offices in 50 countries, coaching more than 15,000 businesses every week. To learn more, go to
