4 In A Row For ActionCOACH Ireland

 

ActionCOACH Ireland’s winning streak at the European Coach Conference continued this year in Liverpool with a double win. This marks our fourth consecutive year of taking top honours at the annual gathering of business coaches from across the EMEA region.

John O’Sullivan was presented with the prestigious EMEA Employee Coach of the Year 2018 beating off competition from over 200 business coaching practices across the EMEA region.
John  was both surprised and honoured to be recognised as the best performing employee business coach in Europe

”I’m delighted, I want to thank our MD Paul Fagan whose leadership has brought me through seven years of business coaching to winning this honour.”

As a business coach, John is more used to congratulating his clients on their achievements. Most recently Little Learners Pre-School & Montessori received double accreditation at the Business All Stars Awards for innovation and team. John was quick to pay tribute to those who he credits with helping him to win his EMEA Employee Coach of The Year Award,

“This is really an award for the team and my colleagues back in Dublin not to mention my clients without whom I wouldn’t be receiving this award.”

“This is a team award so I couldn’t achieve any of things to earn this award without my team back home in Ireland, our coaching team, the franchisee team so thanks to all the guys and girls who have helped us get to here today. “

Paul also acknowledged how proud he is to be building better businesses in Ireland using the ActionCOACH system 18 years now.

“Thanks Brad for the system, we have been rocking and rolling in Ireland now for 18 years using the ActionCOACH system and it’s been the most fantastic and rewarding journey. To have won this award for the 4th year really means a lot.”

Achieving Goals Requires Prioritised Planning

Achieving Goals Requires Prioritised Planning

It’ much  easier to talk about making a plan than to actually create one. One of the first issues you’ll encounter is determining how to prioritise each task. This is why it helps to divide your plan into three categories:

  1. Needs
  2. Wants
  3. Would like to’s

By categorising your priorities this way, you’ll have a better understanding of what is important, as well as the best way to approach it. Let’s look at these categories in more detail, helping you to differentiate immediate needs from short- and long-term goals.

Needs:

“Needs” refer to what you’re business cannot survive without such as paying the bills, obtaining product, maintaining a monthly profit. A “need” should always be your first priority, and the goals you set for yourself should reflect these.

Wants:

“Wants” represent what you want to achieve either a business or personal goal. For example, you might want to boost your annual sales by 25%, or take a holiday at the end of the quarter. “Wants” are a great way to chart your course in the short term, and can be of great use in motivating both yourself and your team to raise the bar. However, it’s important to remember that a want isn’t necessarily a priority for you, nor will it provide the kind of long-term vision that is required for you to attain true success.

Would Like To’s:

“Would like to’s” will ultimately be your guiding force in the long run, and ideally your “wants” and “needs” will align with what it is that you hope to achieve. If your “needs” are barely being met, then you won’t be able to satisfy your “wants” or achieve your “would like to’s.” Don’t just meet your needs – beat them.

Instead of breaking even, reach for a 20% profit by the end of the year. Then, use those profits to expand your business, attract more clients and perpetuate a virtuous cycle of self-propelled growth!

Each one of these three types of priorities have their own important role within your growth plan. Keeping them in harmony with each other is a crucial underpinning in successful businesses everywhere. If you understand how to balance these priorities when creating and executing your plans, you’ll be amazed at how much more smoothly everything runs.
