Ron Harris – Harris Technology

I’m Ron Harris with Harris Technology, I’m the president of the company. The reason I chose ActionCOACH is because I met Doug Winnie at a networking event, and over time I got the impression that he knew what he was doing and knew what companies like ours needed to do in order to be successful.

ActionCOACH has affected our lives a way for our business to succeed where it hadn’t been succeeding in the past. We’ve been doing what we’ve been doing since 1982, and this has been a period of time since I’ve been with Doug that has given us an amazing amount of wins; increases in profitability, reduction in cost, building a team…really he’s done so much for us to enable to grow and become the company that I really always wanted us to become. The results we’ve achieved are pretty phenomenal. We’re still in business and we’re thriving, we’re doing better than ever. We have a team that is phenomenal. We’re looking for more people…we’re just doing the right things at the right time. We’re not paying attention to the economy or any of the problems that the world is facing, but we’re taking responsibility for the space we have here in Houston Texas, and growing and thriving. 

ActionCOACH The biggest benefit from working with has been the confidence to take steps that I ordinarily wouldn’t have done. I’m very analytical, very much of a C in the DISC world. I over analyze and I procrastinate…Doug is the counterbalance to that, and allows me to voice my objections to moving forward with some idea, and he always comes back to with a way for me to confidently move forward and succeed. It’s amazing to me how he’s been able to get inside my head, and encourage me to do t the things that need to be done to make our business successful. I consider him part of our team..he’s THAT close to our business. He cares for us…he really does epitomize the term “Coach”. He really encourages us and makes us better. 

I can’t say too much about what ActionCOACH has done for us. It’s a fabulous program and I’m very fortunate to have found a coach like Doug.

My experience with ActionCOACH can really be summed up in just a few words; success, profit, increased earnings, freedom. As the owner of a business, you have the ultimate responsibility for making things go right. You feel like that’s a 24-hour a day job, and through ActionCOACH, I feel like I’ve been able to step away from having to be there 24-hours a day making things go, and now I have a team that helps me get that done. 

If you’re looking for a coach to tell you what to do, tell you how to do things, or do things for you…ActionCOACH isn’t the right place to be…but if you’re looking for someone that’s going to help educate you, and bring you to the realization of certain things that need to be done, the formulas for success and how to do those things…thenActionCOACH is by far the place you should be.
