Tony Colombo – Your Growth Coach
I’m Tony Colombo, the local owner of The Growth Coach of Middle Tennessee. For me, The Growth Coach is about developing leaders through personal and professional growth. It doesn’t matter what job you have or what path you’ve walked – if you can become a better leader, you can build more successful businesses while reaching your personal goals. So yes, I want to help a sales person make more money, but I really want that sales person to learn how to be a leader in their industry so they can grow on a personal and professional level. That’s what sets me and The Growth Coach apart.
The Growth Coach of Middle Tennessee is a locally-owned and operated business, but, on an international level, The Growth Coach is the largest provider of affordable group coaching workshops. Coaches around the world offer group and one-on-one coaching for sales professionals, managers, management teams, self-employed professionals, sales people and more through a wide variety of programs offered in three series – the Foundational Series, Fundamental Series and Fast-Forward Series. As a Growth Coach, my goal is to help my clients in Nashville and Franklin build more successful businesses and more balanced lives. 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 started my career as a Special Operations Engineer Sergeant with the United States Army. As a Green Beret, I had the tremendous opportunity to learn and experience firsthand how leadership and teamwork skills are essential to achieving goals. At the completion of my military career, I leveraged my mechanical engineering degree and spent over 20 years with a Fortune 100 company leading diverse teams and driving success through effective leadership.
Before becoming a coach, I realized that in all my past roles, my passion was in successfully coaching leaders to refine the tools and skills that enable them to develop organizational cultures that achieve extraordinary results. The Growth Coach franchise gives me the unique opportunity to package my experience, passion and expertise with a proven, time-tested suite of programs and services to have the strongest impact on my clients and my community.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from The University of Memphis and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Belmont University and I live in Franklin/Grassland community with my wife Bettie and three daughters Diane, Isabel and Zoe.
The Growth Coach has some amazing programs, but it all starts with listening to the client’s goals, challenges and successes to help them develop their own growth plan. The Growth Coach is about working together to make the most of your business and your time. I’m looking forward to working with you.
