Executive Coaching Testimonials for Chuck Kocher
"I have been working with Chuck and ActionCOACH for 3 ½ years. We are all born with hair. A day can depend on what you do with that hair each morning. A style, this way or that, can make a huge difference in how you look/feel for the day and how others perceive you. ActionCOACH takes what you have been given by God and shows you how to best use and leverage those talents to make a difference each day in your business and your life. The program also addresses our less talented areas helping 'change and develop' them to make us even more successful."
“The coaching program has helped me figure out and focus on the priorities of the company. Because of this better focus, we have been able to achieve all of the goals we have set. Now that the goals are written, I actually remember what they are and know when I achieve them. I now am better at holding people accountable and making expectations clear. I also know how to think through and make solid, realistic goals.”
“Coaching has also helped me become a better leader by making me focus on the areas I need to work on to improve. I do not like to admit or look at my shortcomings. Chuck has made me realize I am not perfect and that’s ok, provided I am committed to change and that I can work on the areas I do not excel in. I can now admit and work on my shortcomings and 'stucks' without worry.”
“Chuck and his team are professional and patient. I can always get the answers I need. The team is very positive."
“There is always a coaching plan! I know what is expected and when it is expected. And we are always treated with a positive attitude! I have never spoken to anyone on the team that did not have a great attitude. On the results side, we have literally doubled our sales within a two-year time frame, we have achieved ~ 60% increase over previous year. BLOOD PRESSURE – my blood pressure has dropped (and maintained) by 20 points since our coaching began.”
“I did start the program with some skepticism, but was pleasantly surprised with direction it has taken me and my business. I now look forward to coaching sessions because they help me think through issues and concerns and look at alternate possibilities. I now stay focused on the important issues. I believe that even the most successful business can be enhanced by Chuck Kocher and the ActionCoach Program." M.B. Owner Healthcare Services and Staffing Company – Fort Collins
“Chuck taught me how to focus more on the important things of my job. I had never been in a coaching program; it has been very beneficial. I feel Chuck taught me how to be more motivated on many different levels.”
“I learned how to fill out the One Page Strategic Plan and understand how it works and how it relates to my goals and, ultimately, to my success. I know that my focus has increased by 75% and the understanding of certain sale techniques by 50%. And now I am focused, confident and poised to have a great increase in my performance.” J.M. Sales Manager – Healthcare Provider – Fort Collins
“I think to be a successful manager, a Strategic Plan, understanding your SWOT and Budgeting numbers is a massive learning curve. More detailed information on strategic planning dashboards. Chuck has helped us make this a part of our business. Chuck is very positive, a great listener and has fabulous ideas to improve my performance when my goals are not being met."
"I have learned how to look at my personality, use it as strength, and be aware of how it can be a threat to the team if I do not look at the big picture and how to interact with others. My ability to lead has improved dramatically. As a company, we have used the philosophy of Above and Below the Line to help mold our office into a better and accountable working environment. Coaching has also helped both our team and our company grow and also hire some great new employees.” H.G. Director – Healthcare Provider
“I would rate coaching a 10; I have really enjoyed learning from Chuck. He is very insightful and informative. I have learned so very much from him. I feel that he was instrumental in the change in me. Chuck and his team are SUPER FANTASTIC. The communication and assistance in the coaching program we received has been absolutely fabulous. I have discovered that things about myself that I thought were bad were actually not downfalls, but rather, make me a better and more rounded person and manager. On a results basis, I have been able to increase the amount of time that I spend out of the office, which is critical for my success. My increased sales are a direct result of the extra hours that I have been out of the office. This is a great coaching program. I did not believe in the financial investment of a business coach; however, I have been proven completely wrong. I would recommend Chuck and his team to other business owners with out a reservation.” B.S. Manager – Healthcare Service Provider - Denver
“Chuck’s mentoring and coaching came about at a time when things were getting out of control in our high-growth business. Our growth had outgrown my management and leadership capabilities. The ActionCOACH team has gone above and beyond to accommodate our fast growth office and team. I’ve had to ask for flexibility far too often and Chuck and his team always managed to find away to help us. Scheduling and communications have always been a real plus! The meetings at the ActionCOACH facility have always been top-notch, as well."
"Some specific areas that I have seen improvements is in these areas:
"We’ve now returned to stability after a rough year of explosive growth and a near complete internal implosion. We hit significant marks in sales and profits and received an industry award for performance for the third time. Chuck has also coached us to hire several key new leaders for the future growth of our company!”
"Chuck and the ActionCOACH Team came along at just the right time for me. I was clear that my management and leadership growth was not keeping pace with the high growth of my business. My business is much stronger already and, to a large degree, thanks to my personal development of working with Chuck. Chuck, my entire team appreciates the difference that you’ve made as our coach.”
"Chuck has done an outstanding job as my coach and I have learned a tremendous amount from his coaching. I am now keenly aware of how I communicate and learn. I now know that I am very visual, I am a hands-on learner, and I also know how to recognize how other employees learn. This has helped me be a better trainer and a better manager. Chuck and his Action team have been very helpful coordinating our meetings and reminding me to do my SMART goals and I am always thinking how I can utilize the tools Chuck has given me to be a better manager and team member. This is the first experience I have had with a business coach and it has been very pleasant and helpful in both my business and personal life. I am more confident in my decision-making and making high-quality decisions. I have learned to better manager with my head and then with my heart and emotions. On the results side, our sales have increased by 18% and our overall productivity and performance has increased by 25%. I am working towards increasing that to 50% by the end of this year."
“My personal success through business coaching has been an eye-opener for me because I thought I knew myself pretty well. I have learned that I have more strength than I give myself credit for and that my weaknesses can be changed with hard work, focus and utilizing the tools and techniques that Chuck has taught me. I have learned that I need to trust my instincts and I now do!” C.V. Manager – Healthcare Provider - Pueblo
“Chuck is doing a great job as our coach. I am learning a lot about myself. Chuck coaches me to think, visualize and have goals for myself and the company. He is giving me the tools I need to be a better manager. I have learned to see myself as a manager and am confident in my decision-making as a manager. I have also learned that I am an analyzer. I am learning to use the strengths of this and learning from the weaknesses, as well. Our performance, professionalism and productivity have increased a great deal. I don’t have a number for this, but you can see it when you come into the office or speak to us on the phone. [Coaching success] also shows with our sales.” B.A. Manager - Healthcare Provider - Pueblo
“I have been working with Chuck and ActionCOACH for 3 ½ years. The coaching program is outstanding and has made me more aware of my management and leadership style and where I need to improve to become more effective as a manager/leader.”
“The coaching services Chuck and ActionCOACH provides are invaluable. I have enjoyed the fact that I have identified my management style and you have helped me to see how to adapt my style to best manage my team.”
"Chuck’s coaching style allows me to adapt your teaching and coaching to the atmosphere that exists in my office. You inspire me to feel that I can accomplish, change, and manage the change in a positive environment. The tools that you have provided to us to assist us in the strategic planning, to grow the business, has been extremely beneficial."
"I have received so much insight into my own personal mannerisms/behavior and what I need to do to change, to help with my management of other teams. I have benefited in a massive way from the resources provided to me by business coaching, especially the resources for planning the future growth of our office. We have enjoyed an 18% increase in our sales over the previous year. I think this is in direct correlation to the knowledge that we have received from coaching, to assist in growing our business. The performance of the staff has increased by 25% and I feel that this will increase significantly with new restructuring and reorganization of the office duties and foresee a 50%increase in performance in the very near future. I, personally, believe that with the assistance of Chuck’s coaching, we have grown not only as an office, but as a total team and organization. As our coach, you have helped us open up avenues of communication that has been greatly needed. We now receive more communication, feedback, and sharing of information than we ever had in the past. I have greatly benefited from your coaching and I feel that I have grown as a manager and a leader and will continue to grow in the future. Thanks, Chuck!” DY Director – Healthcare Service Provider - Pueblo
“The coaching program has helped me to be more aware of myself as a manager. I always feel optimistic about the future of my department after the coaching sessions. Coaching with Chuck is Great! Chuck is always personable with great ideas and his support team is outstanding. I’ve learned how to organize and prioritize better than I did before. I feel my management skills have greatly improved in the past year as far as communication of expectations.”
"I know our customer service has improved since coaching has begun. Also, putting SMART Goals on paper has helped my department to achieve +80% of our goals from the prior year. Chuck, with ActionCoach, has helped me personally to become a much better manager. He has given me tools I can use in my everyday work week to help me stay organized, focused, and always looking toward a successful future.” J.M. Manager Healthcare Provider – Pueblo"
“If you would have asked me this question three years ago, I would have said I hate it and get rid of it. But NOW! I look forward to the coaching sessions. Chuck has helped me become a better leader and have kept me from jumping off the roof! Chuck and the ActionCOACH team are all great… The consistency and focus from coaching keeps me on track Our Colorado Springs Homecare met all but one goal last year. We met our financial goals: both revenue and profits, for the calendar year. We were right on the goals that we set. I can only speak for the homecare division but in 2008 and 2009 we achieved more financially than we ever had. We met goals important ones for the first time and felt and saw the results. The 2010 planning was easy to do and I was actually excited to start working on our goals!” D.W. Director Homecare – Healthcare Service Provider – Colorado Springs
“I have noticed a significant change in everyone: we are all able to communicate better. We are all able to help each other, knowing what each of us need or just knowing anyone’s 'stucks.' And, I feel that we are all moving all in the right direction as a total company. I always know that I can go to Chuck if I am stuck, when no one else can help, and this gives me tremendous confidence to face the never-ending change in our business. With Chuck’s coaching, I am now able to face any confrontations with others, without it being an argument, or I don’t back down. Accountability is now part of our DNA; everyone is accountable for their actions both good and bad. As a results go, we increased our office staff and team and this, in turn, has increased my employee staffing by at least 15%... My overall sales have increased each year in coaching!" M.G. Staffing Manager – Healthcare Staffing – Colorado Springs
“I’ve seen excellent results from the coaching program. People involved in the program have worked hard on their constraints, once they were able to recognize what their issues were and how best to work with them. This is a direct result of coaching. Chuck and his team is fabulous, the communication is always pleasant and professional. Revealing your 'self' is easy with Chuck. There is a level of comfort, yet definite accountability. I’ve absolutely seen a positive change in myself and in the people I work for. I’ve benefited from knowing my personal constraints and how to make changes to overcome those constraints."
"I, personally, have achieved a huge goal in receiving a promotion that I believe was afforded me due to the change in office culture that Chuck helped us achieve in our company. I have watched the business grow and goals set, which are then reached. Using Chuck as our business coach has changed the way we run and think about our business. Coaching has taught us how to identify the office culture we want and empowered us to make the changes needed. I highly recommend ActionCoach to any organization that is interested in positive change for their organization!” E.R. C.O.O. Healthcare Services Provider – Colorado Springs
“Chuck has helped me in so many aspects; I feel I have become a better manager, as far as 'putting my foot down' when I have to. [I am] better at holding my team 'accountable' and taking ideas that have been given to me and using them to develop an even better team. Coaching with Chuck has helped me set great goals and how to be a better manager by seeing the 'Big Picture.'"
"We have been able to build a much better team, as far as attitudes, and actually building a sense of team in my department. In area of sales, Chuck is coaching me that I can do this, too. In Feb ’08, I took over as HCBS Branch Manager. By April 1st, wasn’t so sure I could do the job. After my first few coaching sessions with Chuck, he showed me I really could. I’ve implemented what I’ve learned into the team and HCBS department, and we will continue to grow huge and offer the best quality of care possible. Thanks, Chuck!” L.I. Manager – Healthcare Provider – Colorado Springs
“I really enjoy the coaching sessions. Things seem to be great. I think you really nail the personality tests and understanding how I am motivated. We now have clarity on our direction as a team, and better follow up receiving the tools Chuck has taught us how to use. I have learned to be much more assertive and to not be as afraid to speak up in difficult situations. I am also becoming much more organized and methodical with my self-management. Without the coaching, I feel neither my company nor I would be as strong as we are today. Chuck really challenges us, as a team, and me, as an individual, in making sure that we are totally accountable for our actions.” J. R. Manager – Healthcare Provider – Denver
"Coaching has really focused me in understanding my management style and knowing what works for every one of my team members. Coaching has also taught me to communicate to bring a team together. Learning different ways to communicate to one's peers to get their buy-in for the advancement of the company or growth is monumental.”
"Three Massive Learnings that I have had:
"Coaching has improved effective communication skills and helped us set specific goals to improve productivity. Brain-storming and setting action goals with my coach, Chuck has been just fabulous…"
"Some of the additional areas that I have learned about in coaching with Chuck have been:
"We have built a solid foundation for the new office that we have opened and we have hired on a great new team… thanks to Chuck, I am excited about the great future that we have!" B.M. Director – Health Services provider – Louisville, CO
“[The] program has been a great help with focusing me on my goals and how to set the right goals and prioritize them. Chuck and his team are a pleasure and enjoyable to work with. Coaching has really helped bring our employees together, as a team, to reach and exceed our corporate goals. Coaching has also taught me how to use a systematic way of tracking my department and to stay focused on the road to achieving goals. We have also increased our caseload, which has increased our top-line sales revenue. I have obtained both personal and business growth that has enabled me to make better use of my existing business skills and, on top of that, I have also developed new and better business skills so that I can lead my office into the future, thanks Chuck!” C.M. Manager - Healthcare Provider – Colorado Springs
Master Coaching Testimonials
“Chuck Kocher has been my ActionCOACH mentor coach for over a year. What I love about working with Chuck is [that]... he’s a wild man! The energy and the drive is truly inspiring to me. One of Chuck’s greatest gifts is recognizing and coaching the client the way they need to be coached in the moment. In our last coaching call, I asked him if I was playing small and he said "Yeah." That was all it took; he knows when to give me room, how to hold me to account and when to push me. I have been around a bunch of coaches over the last nine years and that is a rare gift. Since we started working together, I both achieved and have banked platinum consistently. I have gotten close to emerald several times and have shifted my focus and commitment to growing a firm. He has helped me work through the issues of building a firm and I have brought in two additional coaches. This time, we’re getting it right. That’s all great and I am grateful for those achievements while working together; however, the most important thing to me, personally, is how he has guided my growth in leadership and confidence. I LOVE my Coach.”- Jody Johnson Master Coach/Firm Builder ActionCOACH Miami, Florida

If you’re serious about stretching yourself emotionally and intellectually, as well as being held to account, hire Chuck. If you’re not, good luck!” - Andrew Kureishy – Gold Level Business Coach St Ives, Cambridgeshire UK

“Chuck is an amazing master coach. I selected Chuck in the very beginning because I liked him the first time I met him at a conference. I was tired of getting the same results and knew that I was a really good coach; I just needed someone to bounce ideas off. He is authentic, knowledgeable and can adjust his style to handle any personality. He listens, asks challenging questions and provides support, when needed. His business acumen is a real added value to think differently about the ins and outs of the business and coaching. Chuck has been my coach since September 1, 2009 and my personal and professional growth has skyrocketed. Look out, Global, Barb is coming!” - Barb Kyes – Firm-owner/Business Coach Palm Harbor, Florida

“Thanks for being my Mentor/Master Coach since February, 2010. It has been a challenging road for me and you have helped make it possible to achieve my success, to date. Whilst at times it seemed easier to throw in the towel, you kept me on track to see the light at the end of the tunnel. You have helped me focus on building Strategic Alliances, Diagnostic Preparation, Goal Planning, asked me great questions and especially, preparing for the Business is Booming Tour. Whilst a recent focus was very driven towards the BIB Tour, this has now paid off with about 20 Diagnostic prospects in the pipeline. This has now helped me go from a Bronze Coach to a Gold Coach in ONE MONTH by closing some great 1-2-1 clients and getting three months prepayment and Alignment fees all upfront. Now I am on track to reach for Platinum, hire team members and start to grow my organic Firm. Your ongoing support will now be crucial to see me through some new great marketing ideas, client retention and some great team building for my organic firm growth. Your experience and willing to adapt to any situation has been priceless; thanks for keeping me accountable. Now it is time to reap the benefits and reach even greater heights”.- Nathan Smith – Business Coach – Las Vegas, Nevada
