Sun City, South Africa – ActionCOACH Mike McKay was named Global Executive Coach of the Year at the franchise’s global conference and awards in South Africa. The local franchise, ActionCOACH of Madison, was also named to the Top 10 Global Business Coaching Firms for 2016.
“Many executives rose through the ranks because they have great technical or management skills,” said McKay. “It’s a completely different set of capabilities to lead the entire company, work with a Board of Directors, and deliver on goals through other people. We work with many leaders who want to become better, or overcome the things that prevent them from leading the kinds of companies they know they are capable of running. It’s quite an honor to be recognized amongst our peers in this way.”
The Top 10 Global Firms ranking is out of 76 ActionCOACH firms around the world. “We believe healthy companies build healthy communities,” said Susan Thomson, partner of ActionCoach of Madison. “Last year our client companies grew net profit by 62% after our fees. We’re committed to continuing to grow our capacity locally; the more companies we can reach and help like that, the stronger our local economy.”
The 2016 Global Conference and Awards hosted 150 of the top coaches in the world. Held in Sun City, South Africa, the event represents ActionCOACH’s commitment to training and delivering the best, most effective and highest ROI business programs and coaches to business owners, entrepreneurs, and their teams throughout the world.
