What do clients say about working with Kent?
A great feeling, when things get done without you in your business.
This is the experience Josh Ross had when his clients noticed the changes he was making in his business.
There are 2 things that come to mind when I think of Kent and the impact he has had on our team; communication and client appreciation. Working with Kent over the past 1.5 years communication has improved, more than just improved we have some now where we had little to zero before. We have had more real meaningful staff and managers meetings in the past 12 months than we have had in the previous 12 years. We have been in business for over 50 Years and we wanted to find a way to say thank you to our clients. We initiated a Gift Card program for our top clients, we mailed out 446 gift cards ranging in value from $50 to $150. It was a very interesting program for us, so not only did we say Thank You, the program lead to an increase in sales. Forty percent of the Gift Cards have been redeemed, after just 90 days, it has brought in $39,000 in revenue, and we increased our average dollar sale on those transactions by 75%.

The way I work has totally changed; the efficiency of both me and my team has increased. After just 3 months of working with Kent Boehm two of the initiatives I have implemented are already starting to significantly pay off. I started doing a daily team meeting and my team and I created a scoreboard which tracks our daily, weekly and monthly productivity and efficiency. These two things combined have created an environment with a sense of competition, where my staff compete to be # 1 on the board each day. It has be so effective that in month three we produced 25% more work, if that wasn’t enough we accomplished those numbers with a 60% reduction in staff.

Until I met Kent and Action COACH, I was working 60 to 75 hours a week, burned out and helpless to get out of the rut. Now six months later, I work approximately 45 hours a week with the help of my new staff. I delegate better, hire better, with more time for myself and my family. I have learned how to spend my time working on my business instead of in my business. Plus, I have increased my sales in the first half of 2008 by 24%. Action COACH was money well spent!
Ron Fry – President Central Air Equipment
I found the service of Action COACH Kent to be very enlightening. He gave me the opportunity to detach myself from the day to day operations of my company and spend time planning and analyzing formats and procedures. He also gave me the opportunity to safely air my concerns and insecurities about my business.
Roger Hamel – CDI International
I felt a business coach was essential during start-up, when everything was new and I was feeling “out on a limb.” I needed Action COACH Kent for encouragement, building confidence, getting through the start-up questions, and setting goals and strategies. There are many resources out there, but I found that a personal coach like Kent, who focused on tracking progress in my specific business, was the most helpful.
Diane Roddy – Roddy Resources Inc.
I was very reluctant to start business coaching and had many doubts about what the program could offer that I didn’t already have. After three months working with Kent, however, I am completely convinced that coaching it is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my business. In a very short period of time, it has revolutionized the way I think about business, bringing new organization, direction and motivation. As a coach, Kent brings excellent perspective to any situation, whether it relates to day to day operations or long term vision and goals. I wish I had done this sooner!
Kent has a unique set of skills to help you do what it takes to be successful. He helps you stay honest and accountable to your vision for yourself, your family and your business. For small business owners like us, Kent was a great support in bringing some of our many ideas and goals into the real world. He took the time to get to know us and our business, and was instrumental in our process of hiring and training new staff. Thanks Kent!

For a few years we have been trying to find some sort of guide to help us organize our business and work with our company and our ideas. We had talked with at least a half dozen companies. At our interviews all of these companies told us how they could point out we were doing wrong, and that our company would fail if we didn’t get their help.
Then we met Kent Boehm. Right away we noticed Kent’s passion to help businesses and their owners grow and realize their true potential and to show the owners that working on the business rather than in their business would be the benefit.
Kent came to our first meeting and asked us where we wanted our company to go. Kent offered to work with us to make our company stronger.
Our company has worked hard to get all of our ducks in the one pond. Its even better to have someone help us line those ducks up, release the ones we don’t need and take care of the ones we do.
