Austin, TX, June 24, 2010 — ActionCOACH, the world’s number one business coaching company, is partnering with the leading employee assessment company, Profiles International.

ActionCOACH has made a strategic alliance with Profiles International to provide a comprehensive suite of assessment and coaching solutions. This alliance brings together two leaders in the human capital performance space; ActionCOACH, the world’s leading business coaching company, and Profiles International, the preeminent leader in employee assessments.

“The combination of valid assessments with targeted, personal coaching is very powerful for executives accepted to deliver in this economy,” Profiles International President Bud Haney said. “This alliance is a major win for our companies and our clients.”

Coaching is something that is necessary for any organization to improve; through training, guidance and development, business coaching identifies the highest priority needs that should be fixed or improved to advance the overall business. But sometimes these priorities are harder to identify without knowledge of an executive’s natural behaviors, management style, and leadership strengths and weaknesses.

ActionCOACH has created an international business out of identifying what needs to be improved within any executive’s company and giving guidance, encouragement and “homework” to business owners to help them achieve all their goals and, in turn, get their business running the way they want it.

Like ActionCOACH, Profiles International helps organizations worldwide. Profiles International offers assessment solutions that enable organization to select the right people and develop them to their full potential. Profile International’s assessments provide employers with information used for hiring, promoting, succession planning, 360-degree feedback programs, management development, training, motivating, improving customer service, and other employment issues.

“Assessments are necessary to evaluate businesses and gauge their levels of success, and business coaches assess their clients’ businesses on a consistent basis,” Jodie Shaw, CEO of ActionCOACH USA and Canada, said. “By partnering with Profiles International, I know utilizing their employment assessments will bring out the best in all our business coaches’ clients.”

Together, ActionCOACH and Profiles International will help and guide companies to be their best and produce their best work.
