Las Vegas, NV, February 19, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Terry Elton was looking for a new challenge that would allow him to apply the wide range of business experiences he had accumulated during the course of his previous career – when he came across ActionCOACH.
“While researching jobs and other opportunities within the sphere of mentoring and consulting, I came across several references to ActionCOACH,” he said. “The more I read and learned about ActionCOACH, the more convinced I became that this would be the perfect fit for me.”
With a passion to help fellow business owners prosper as well as a strong desire to also give back to the community, Elton decided to invest in an ActionCOACH franchise.
Master Licensee Rafael Maymi recently named Terry Elton as an ActionCOACH in Oregon.
His office will be located in Tigard, which is located south of Portland in Oregon. He will be providing coaching services in the Portland area and also the Columbia George region of Oregon.
Elton retuned from the east coast to the Pacific Northwest after enjoying a successful career in Washington DC in senior management roles that included positions like: Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Vice President of Operations, General Manger for major business groups, Corporate Chief Information Officer, General Manager for a national customer support center, and Senior Program Manager.
He also served over 20 years in the United States Air Force - planning, implementing, and managing mission critical Air Force communications and computer systems - and leading, motivating, and mentoring teams to successfully accomplish their missions and goals.
“I worked with a broad spectrum of businesses and with an equally diverse range of business owners,” he said. “I have been successful in many industries, including, manufacturing, software development, the technical services industry, commercial call centers, networking, computer security, information processing, telecommunications, systems integration, and federal and state government contracting. I have also successfully worked with companies with 4 to over a 1,000 team members.”
Elton believes his skills and experiences in both small and large companies when combined with ActionCOACH’s world-class training and proven systems will allow him to help local business owners not only increase their bottom lines but also improve their work/life balance.
“The ActionCOACH opportunity made me realize that coaching is something that every business and business owner can benefit from - not just big businesses and corporations, but also small businesses,” he said.
With a desire to gain more accountability and responsibility for his own life rather than going the corporate route again, Elton decided to change gear and take on the role of an ActionCOACH.
“A major motivation was the feedback I received from personally talking with other ActionCOACH Business Coaches across the country,” he said. “Their excitement in working as a Business Coach and the impact of their coaching on small businesses was contagious; I immediately caught the bug.”
A member of his local Chamber of Commerce, Elton is excited about his ability to help small business owners and at the same time, continue on his personal growth journey – adding to his skills set.
ActionCOACH is the world’s number one business coaching and executive coaching franchise, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries. To learn more about business coaching and ActionCOACH, go to actioncoach.com.
