What is Business/Sales Coaching?
Coaching is a specific process of interaction designed to help you achieve your business vision and goals, more quickly and effectively than you would on your own. By telling you what you need to hear, instead of what you want to hear, coaching helps you break through limitations, habits and obstacles that hold you back, and develop the strategies, action plans, mindset and discipline you need to achieve the results you’re after.
Get to know Jason
I grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. I was passionate about planes and flying and after high school, I got my private pilots license. That same year, I was promoted to my first professional sales position (the company owner had seen that I was making sales while still on the manufacturing floor).
At this company, I advanced through positions: manufacturing floor, sales, business development and eventually, territory development and business management.
It was during a trip to the Okanagan that I fell in love with the area. Along with the relocation, I also shifted from employee to business owner. With a partner, a retail dealership was born. As CEO, I headed the company from startup to multi-million dollar, award-winning enterprise. One highlight was a Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year award.
Riding high on the success of this first venture, we attracted another partner and launched a second startup. Although a rock solid plan and strategy, little did we know the upcoming US financial crisis would test us harder than we knew.
Here’s where I want to say “long story short” and skip to the present! Our construction industry businesses were not faring well through a tanking economy and marketplace. It was two difficult years before we closed the doors. Today, I can say that I’ve been through it all personally – the highs of business achievement and the lows of making the hardest decisions and tasting failure.
During that time, I became very interested in my own career development issues. By extension, I became fascinated by what made some people successful and fulfilled, while others with equal or higher ability seemed caught in perpetual struggle. I began to read heavily in the fields of personal development, leadership, motivation, psychology, business, marketing, and success. I attended numerous seminars and accelerated learning workshops. I began to develop a passion for personal development and success strategies.
From my first sales position until today, I’ve had remarkable coaches and mentors in my life that I am grateful for. They made a world of difference and sparked my interest in coaching and mentoring.
I’ve received a great deal of training and earned multiple certifications, but the greatest training ground of all has been experience, both personal and that gained working with my clients.
I have served clients in these industries:
- Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners
- Human Resources
- Interior Design
- Real Estate Development, Management and Sales
Solid business acumen, creative innovation to differentiate, and an impressive commitment to quality and execution.
