Tim is a hands on coach. When I have issues that come up in the business, I have a coach that will oversee it from an outsider’s perspective and give me valuable insights. Tim coaches us through developing strategies to overcome challenges and setting a course to implement those strategies.
One of the most tangible coaching results has been the implementation of the business 5 ways report. Our management team can look at the 5 ways and know how we are doing at any given time. This allows us to continually measure if we are on target to hit our sales goals. Tim has helped me grow as a person by helping me recognize change that needs to come about in the business, become a better leader for our team, understand how to work with people and build a team environment in our company. He continually reminds us of how important it is to set time aside to work on the business even while we are busy working in the business.

I am Jim Hafendorfer, President and C.E.O. of Hafendorfer Machine, Inc. I have been working with Tim Jones, Business Coach with Action Coach Business Coaching since July 2008. I originally called on Tim to teach me the knowledge and techniques that a good leader must know in order to take my business to the next level. In the time that I have been working with Tim, Tim has helped me develop my own personal abilities, as well as, develop my business.
Tim has worked with me in realigning my team, making certain that each employee fits their position to the best of their ability. Tim has also helped me handle many of the HR issues that I had been dealing with by teaching me the tools to allow me to focus on the real issues, rather than the emotional ones. I have also been taught new hiring procedures to assist me in qualifying employees in order to build the right team for the future.
By Tim helping me to identify the strengths and weaknesses in not only my business, but in me personally, I am now able to work on overcoming the problems that my company has faced. Together, Tim and I have revamped the whole structure of my company from administration to operations.
I believe that Tim has truly helped me to become a better manager of both my employees and my business. I am excited to apply the tools and techniques that I have learned fromTim and grow my business.

Not only has my business grown since we have been with Tim, but I have grown as a Christian business owner. Tim’s coaching style has always been about accountability. Coaching has given me the ability to know how to work with my team and get their input and buy-in. My team members now come to me with their ideas. The best part about coaching is that I have someone that I can talk to about the problems that come up in my business, and someone to run ideas by. If you are struggling as a business owner, a business coach is probably a good fit for you.

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the time and wisdom that you poured into me last year. I am a different person than I was a year ago. I owe a great deal of this to you and your ability to get me to the thousand foot level view so that I could put things in perspective and focus on the things that were important.
My team is functioning like a well-oiled machine. The key players are all in place now, and they all understand what is expected of them. Their ability to function in their roles has freed my time up to be able to function in the areas where I am most needed, and on the things that are high value for the firm, and high enjoyment for me. My team seems much happier also!
I had lunch with a friend yesterday, and I told her that while I was going through the coaching, I couldn’t really see the value in it as much as I can see it now that I look back on how things have changed in the past 12 months. I encouraged her to pursue a coaching relationship with you, as I believe you could really help her. She is a dynamo, but just having someone to bounce her ideas off of will give her the clarity she needs to reach her goals.
I look forward to a continued strategic partnership between our two companies!

Tim, I just wanted to again, say thank you – not only for the lunch and conversation today, but for the knowledge and wisdom that you helped me obtain that allows me to be a true OWNER, not only in business but in life. I always call you "the Compass" as you don’t change your clients for them, you point them in the direction of change and walk beside them as they make the difficult journey.
