Marty Coker – Your Growth Coach
Whether you own your own business, you’re managing someone else’s company, you’re in sales or you work for yourself, balancing your business success and your personal life while trying to keep up with the everyday demands of the workplace is hard. I’m Marty Sauer Coker, the local owner of The Growth Coach of Louisville, and I’m here because I want to help you find your “why” and then help you build solutions for your business and your life.
The Growth Coach of Louisville is a locally owned and operated business, but the international Growth Coach Franchise is the largest provider of affordable group coaching workshops. As a Growth Coach, I offer group and one-on-one coaching for sales professionals, managers, management teams, self-employed professionals and more. Other services include remote coaching delivered via phone and web, coaching for special projects, business valuation services, sales mapping and more. As The Growth Coach of Louisville, I serve the entire Greater Louisville area.
A lifelong Louisvillian, I have deep roots in the Louisville area. My 40-year career has focused on strategic, continuous improvement. My journey began at the Louisville Tennis Club, where I grew revenue by developing systems to increase play. I then worked as the membership director for The Jefferson Club, leveraging mutually productive business relationships, and then as the director of business development for the World’s 9th largest employer, Compass Group. I’ve worked in many industries and sectors – corporate, manufacturing, government, corrections, sports, education and hospitality – and, most recently, I served as the director of business development for Unidine, where I concentrated on non-profit senior living communities.
Although I have acquired many business skills and accumulated numerous achievement awards and recognition my purpose and extracurricular involvement has always been focused on family. Whether sports, school board, alumni association or various charitable activities I stayed true to the family litmus test.
I was drawn to The Growth Coach because I’ve always wanted to own my own business and I was finally at a place in my life where I could combine my entrepreneurial spirit with my passion for development, which is how I found The Growth Coach. I am thrilled to be back in my hometown doing something I absolutely love and I’m excited to have this new opportunity to make a positive impact on the businesses and the people in my community. As a Growth Coach, I am certified in The Strategic Mindset coaching process, which adheres to the standards, practices and policies that the International Coaching Federation has set forth in their Code of Professional Standards and Ethics.
I am excited to work with Professionals who want to grow their business and better balance their business and their lives. I want to make your business succeed as much as you do. Together we will uncover your needs, coach to help you find the right path and provide actionable plans to navigate throughout your ongoing journey. The results are a superior professional and personal ROI.
