Lethbridge ActionCOACH Rewards Successful Businesses with Awards Ceremony

Lethbridge, AB– Every day, in every major city across Canada, we see “For Lease” or “For Sale” signs on local businesses on every major street; with rents going up, local businesses are finding it tougher & tougher to survive.

Still, some local businesses thrive, even during the hardest times. Local business expert Greg Stonehocker knows what makes a business thrive: “Above all, a passion for excellence. You have to want to be the best, to really be the only viable option for your customers. Competition will always be fierce. What will set you apart? That’s why I gave out these awards to Alberta business owners—they are showing that anything is possible!”

At the Awards ceremony the Mastery Award was given to Russ Gallant, owner of Water Proofing Roofing Ltd: Russ used to let his business run him, instead of the other way round. Now revenue is up 200% from 2008 & his golf game has never been better. Getting off the roof and working “ON” the business turned out to be the key.

The Leverage Award was given to Gerrit & Jane Bezooyen, of Bezooyen Contracting. Greg gave them this award because Gerrit was recently appointed as the local Canadian Home Builders Association President, which has increased his already busy schedule. We put a plan in place and a system to hire a new person, allowing him to leverage his time and resources.

The Team Award was given to the Boys & Girls Club of Lethbridge: over the past 2.5 years they have consistently upgraded their systems & procedures to make their staffing 100% better. Trever Broadhead, their general director, made incredible strides.

Greg spoke to Trevor, who said “It validates all of the hard work we have been putting forth to achieve our strategic objectives. For the first time in 2 ½ years I feel like we have the best team structure in place, with the most qualified and enthusiastic team members.”

Greg went on to say: “Finally, the Focus Bat Award goes to the company that shows the most significant results and consistent effort over the past 90 days. It was a real privilege to give this to Rudy & Stella Reger, of EnergySmart Canada, who have shown incredible resolve to make things better. Among other things, they have implemented a number of Sales, KPI, Marketing Systems, have hired a General Manager, renegotiated financing and inventory levels. Business in Alberta is booming–& owners like Rudy & Stella are showing us the way!”
