Dear Juan,
 
…. I have only been coached now for about 4 months, and though I was not expecting to see results so early, I have already seen some real changes. My direct reports are using many of the philosophies now themselves, and some have even started passing those teachings onto their staff as well. Coaching has had a direct positive impact on our efficiency, keeping us more organized, more structured, more consistent and ultimately more profitable.
 
I gave coaching a try on a referral from a friend, and though I was skeptical, I thought I would give it a try. So far I couldn’t be happier; sales have improved, profits are up and I feel I have the best understanding in years about how to take my business to the next level. 
 
In the end, what could be more valuable than that?

Dear Juan,
When you first started coaching my brother Darryl and me, our flower company in Toronto was barely surviving. In the first 3 years since you started working with us, our sales have more than tripled and more importantly our profits have steadily gone up.  Today we have tripled our facility locations and have recently acquired an established gift basket business with its own facilities to expand our product offering. Without your help and the accountability you instilled in us, the outcome would likely have been a very different story. It was a tough decision to make at first, but looking back, your services turned out to be the best business decision we could have made.

We have engaged with Juan on several client projects over the years, ranging from planning and managing through corporate restructurings through strategic workforce planning. In these engagements, Juan has always been the lead consultant, bringing us in for specific support in key aspects of the project.

We’ve found found him a pleasure to work with – full of senior-level experience, pragmatic, and client-focused. His values and approach are very aligned with ours, which makes collaborating to achieve shared objectives (the client’s success) clean and easy.

We don’t hesitate to recommend Juan when the opportunity arises.

2009 was a very challenging year for me. Business was slow, margins were under pressure and we seemed to be running around in circles. Having 20 years of management experience I knew we needed something different but I wasn’t sure what it was. I had made significant investments in the business, and hadn’t drawn a proper salary in 4 years. Considering this, I decided to invest a little more money and work with Juan Folch, a business coach from ActionCOACH, to see how he could help me.
 
I am happy to say that we will end Qtr 1- 2010 with sales more than budget. I have a great team working for me and I am more relaxed and focused on the key issues in front of me. I now make the time to work on my business.   I spend time planning on how we get to the next level and am confident of my business plan for 2010.
 
Juan helped me get focus and understand what my key issues were. The coaching sessions help me prioritize my work and plan my time better. I love bouncing my thoughts off of him and he helped me turn thoughts into plans and then actions. I came away motivated from the sessions and wanting to achieve more. He forced me to document how I actually spent my time and then make a plan to do those important but un-urgent tasks that never seemed to get done. He also helped me identify very key personality issues, in the way I handle my customers and this alone has helped me achieve a lot in my business.
 
He tells you the things as he sees them, and sometimes it hurts… Hence if you don’t have the stomach to hear what needs to be done to turn your business around, then Juan is not the Coach for you. But if you want to get new awareness and guidance to move towards your goals, I recommend you talk to Juan.
 
If you are thinking of working with Juan Folch, I will be glad to spend some time to share my experiences about being coached by him.

Juan,
I am encouraged and enabled by having you as an objective sounding board to ideas and business practices we are using or contemplating. The diverse business background you bring to our sessions is appreciated. Your coaching is helping me focus effectively on important, priority issues that are long term solutions to issues our business faces. In the few months we have worked together your great business instincts and leadership have helped me achieve the highest sales per square foot in our category at our mall. Thank you.

Juan,
Your program has revitalized me in many ways; particularly it has helped me to refocus my priorities, reminded me of the initial reason I was so excited to go into business for myself, and propelled me to systematize all the processes of my business so that I can now easily delegate work with the confidence that it will be done with consistent quality.

Hi Juan: 
Thank you for the inspiration and direction that you have given us in the Business Owners development Program. We learnt a lot of new things and also it helped us reaffirm our faith in certain principles that we were already following in running and growing our business.  Basically, we now have a new direction and are again very excited about the future and our growth plans.
 
We met a great bunch of new people, and being in a group, we could share our experiences and also learn from each other in addition to the business coaches.
 
I would recommend joining one of your programs to anybody, it was fantastic!
