Mark has over 20 years of experience in team leadership, marketing, sales, engineering, quality improvement, training, human resources, and finance. In 2004, after 20 years playing the corporate game, he had an “Entrepreneurial Seizure” and became a business coach.
For the last 16 years he has been dedicated to helping other Entrepreneurs achieve their dreams, the way he achieved his. Just like you, Coach Mark has experienced the ups and downs of running a business, and understands the difficulties of succeeding at each step along the way, from start up to growth and expansion.
Coach Mark has won numerous awards locally, regionally, and globally, has been a Conference Presenter, and has been a Top 100 Coach for several years. Now the founder of Engage & Grow Bluegrass, where he is a Certified Coach and Distributor for the team, Coach Mark can help you find your way to success the way his coaches helped him find his. No two journeys are the same, but the decisions to be made, the priorities to be set, and the actions to take all come from the same place inside of us.
Born in the Chicago suburbs, Mark has lived in the Midwest his whole life. He started his coaching career in Columbus, Indiana in 2004. In 2015 he moved to Louisville, where he lives with his wife Liz. He balances his work and play by collecting bourbon, traveling, and rooting for Notre Dame.
“This program was amazing for me as the President. I have already recommended this to the other business owners that I know. I want to make sure that this continues in our Company.”
“Fantastic program for companies who would like better insight on how groups tick.”
Sandy has had a long and varied career, spanning a number of roles and industries. Positions as a project manager and business analyst, recruiter, and human resources director all contributed to her ability to run two businesses of her own. After recent positions in healthcare administration companies, Sandy has turned her attention to the world of Employee Engagement.
She understands that developing employees can be one of the most rewarding and the most challenging endeavors business leaders face. Joining Engage & Grow Bluegrass brings together her knowledge of business and her passion for helping people succeed. Her analytical skills are balanced by her people skills.
Sandy grew up in the Cleveland area, and has preferred the milder winters of Louisville for the past 30 years. She has two amazing children and gets to spoil four grandchildren. She is a regular volunteer and supporter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Louisville Skating Academy. Her latest and most challenging hobby is aerial fitness.
I would recommend Engage & Grow to any business serious about transforming vision and mission statements from words on the wall into a living culture.
I feel that this program has taught us ways to strengthen our team both on the management side and employees. It has also lead us down a path to continue developing these strengths even after the session is complete. It showed us how we can focus on common goals and has brought us closer. I believe that this program is highly beneficial for the head of the company as well, as he gets a better feel for where others stand and who he can lean on when need be.
The 12-week program was huge for us! By engaging 25 team members, it allowed the company to achieve its best sales month in seven years.
