The ActionCOACH Story

The ActionCOACH Story

Over 20 years ago, a young Australian man set out to create a business-coaching firm after realizing the demand of need for proven how-to processes for growing a business that would one day be sellable. Through hard work, determination and a well-organized approach, Brad Sugars started Action International, today referred to as ActionCOACH. Sugars knew that to help others’ businesses succeed; that his own company must first thrive. This is why ActionCOACH has become the most successful and recognized business-coaching firm in the world.

Today, ActionCOACH has more than 1,000 offices in over 70 countries and ranks #35 on the Top 100 Global Franchise List. Sugars created a simple, yet systematized approach that gives us a streamlined way of conducting business. By taking the principles of our success and sharing it with our clients, we help them grow their businesses and achieve their goals.

At ActionCOACH, we have a vision of world abundance through business re-education. We believe that the economy can only grow through productive and lucrative businesses. The more we give business owners the education on how to build a business that works without them – which gives them more profit and free time – in turn, they will create abundance with more wealth, more businesses and more jobs in our local economy. And nothing helps a business thrive more than the guidance of a business coach who provides a “trusted sounding board.” This is why our goal is to place a coach in every business.

We seek to give our clients the highest level of education possible, in a fun and positive learning environment. We guarantee to offer the most practical, applicable and innovative strategies for business growth. ActionCOACH allows you to expand your horizons through business development in multiple areas such as planning, marketing, sales, systematization, financial mastery and measurement, time and production, leadership development, team selection & development to name a few.
