Our clients

Check out a few of our fantastic clients!

  • When business owners are searching for answers, and for direction to move their business and team to the next level, but don't know quite how to do that, ActionCOACH can be the answer. As business owners, we used ActionCOACH to improve our team, culture, and business profitability, and they helped us to obtain a higher level of performance. They helped us get results when none were occurring. As our coach guided us down the right path, we realized what could become possible. Many thanks to the entire multifaceted talents of the ActionCOACH team.

  • Accountability is one of the main reasons I hired Jim Palzewicz as my business coach. I’ve asked Jim to hold me accountable, and he’s been very good at that. I’ve noticed him ratchet that up, as we work for better results in the business… in order for that to happen, I need to be held more accountable, and I need to be holding my employees more accountable as well. As a result of all this, I start seeing things in a different light. I’m also holding Jim accountable to help me get the results I want out of my business.

  • "My company attained a certain level and was having a difficult time trying to break through the ceiling and get to the next level. EOS® helped me develop a leadership team that shares in the responsibilities and has allowed the company to get to the next level. By implementing EOS® I was able to get my leadership team involved in the decision-making process in the daily, weekly, quarterly and annual planning meetings.  They are accepting more tasks and are holding each other accountable.  This makes them all feel like they are more a part of the growing business and are more driven to continue to grow and improve the business.  This has also provided individual growth with their professional careers."

    Randy Roeder, MRI (Material Recovery, Inc.)
  • TBG Networks has been a client of ActionCOACH of Elm Grove for less than a year. Our coach is Todd Ruedt. Since we started working with Todd, our total number of clients has quadrupled and our gross revenues have just about doubled. We have been able to move into an office in Wauwatosa - prior to this we all worked out of our homes. We have also been able to hire a full-time technician to help us, using the ActionCOACH Recruitment Process. There is literally nothing I can say about ActionCOACH that is not a rave review. Todd is a force of nature all by himself, but he is one of a group of staff and coaches, all who are focused on doing whatever they can to help TBG Networks grow and succeed. I heartily recommend ActionCOACH for any business that wants to grow. And who doesn't want that?
