I was surprised at how much business coaching actually helped myself and my company. As a young entrepreneur, I knew I had a lot to learn - but didn't quite realize how much I still had to learn until working with Activate Group. Howard and his team are extremely knowledgeable on how to implement effective strategies for growth. My company has since doubled and I've taken away skills that will benefit me in all areas of business.

I have been working with Howard for about six months on my business. He has helped create structure from the chaos to build a business that runs smoothly, gets results and is profitable, all without me having to work 80 hour weeks. Unlike many coaches I've worked with in the past, Howard has a gift for saying the thing that needs to be said in a way that inspires action. And his advice is always spot on. Working with Howard has had a huge impact on my business!

“My coach is great when it comes to recognizing, adjusting and developing new sales strategies to fit our service and the current marketplace. I have been in outside sales for more than 25 years and my coach brought new ideas to help me deal with the everyday trials of selling a non-tangible service, mostly by phone. I would recommend him to any company that wants to grow their business from inside, with the talent they already have.” Philip Wasserman

As an entrepreneur, I realized that I had not paid enough attention to hiring practices until the business was going through a rough patch. We reluctantly agreed to use Activate Group’s TopGrading selection tools and hired our first ‘A’ player shortly thereafter. What a huge difference! Not only did we find that a true ‘A’ can perform the work of 2 or 3 employees in the same capacity, but they also become a model and motivation for others to improve. Now that we are seeing the successful results, I would not ever think of hiring anyone without the use of these tools. – Omi Diaz-Cooper, President, Diaz & Cooper Advertising, Inc.
