Buffalo, NY – Experienced business leader Sallie Herberger is pleased to announce the launch of her new business and sales coaching company – The Growth Coach of Western New York.

The Growth Coach is the largest provider of affordable group coaching workshops in the nation, but Coaches also offer group and one-on-one coaching for sales professionals, managers, management teams, self-employed professionals and more through a wide variety of programs via three industry-leading series: Foundational Series, Fundamental Series and Fast Forward Series.

The Growth Coach’s mission is to help business leaders build more successful businesses and more balanced lives through coaching, support and accountability. Herberger is looking forward to being part of the resurgence that is taking place in the area and to work with businesses to succeed and help balance the lives of business owners, professionals, and executives by servicing clients in Buffalo and its surrounding communities.

“What I have enjoyed most over my career is the opportunity to develop leaders across all levels of the organization. It is very exciting when working with leaders on their personal development and you see the changes in their behavior and their interactions with others improving,” Herberger said. “I recently had the opportunity to step back and consider a new career path when I read a book about finding your passion. I have always wanted to own my own business and was in a place where I could combine my entrepreneurial spirit with my passion for helping people and decided to go into coaching full time, which lead me to The Growth Coach.”

As a Growth Coach, Herberger is 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. The company’s landmark Strategic Mindset Process is so effective that it comes with a money-back guarantee.

Prior to launching The Growth Coach, Herberger who earned her Business Administration degree at State University of New York at Fredonia has had a successful career as a business leader with expertise in operations, strategic planning, team building, growing revenue and improving customer confidence. Herberger started her career with Nestle Purina and then managed the Mid-West Distribution Center for Proctor & Gamble and has worked in a variety of capacities including project management, corporate strategy, regional leadership, continuous improvement, sales and marketing and most recently held General Manager and Vice President roles at multiple companies.

“Trying to balance the day to day business demands with your personal life is a challenge if you own your own business or are managing a business for someone else. There doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day to get everything done. The Growth Coach encourages business leaders to take a step back, evaluate their businesses, think and plan strategically and take action,” Herberger said, “Success comes from setting goals and following systems and processes that help you succeed through accountability and follow up. As a coach, I’m here to help you develop a plan that will work for your business and your life and to support you along the way.”

“I bring a unique background to this business – my extensive management background, experience with operations and associate engagement has taught me how to ask the right questions to facilitate change. When you combine that experience with the curriculum and tools The Growth Coach has developed, it’s a powerful program. I’m looking forward to combining my own experience and business knowledge with The Growth Coach tools to make a positive impact on businesses and to people in my community,” Herberger added.
