His office is strategically located on the fringe of CBD Melbourne in Kew.
The executive coaching certification is being offered only to the “best of best” within the ActionCOACH community.
Kazakis has been involved in team building and is adept at mentoring teams for success.
“I understand the dynamics of building winning teams and when I was approached by the ActionCOACH head office to add executive coaching to my existing practice, I immediately decided to go for it,” he said.
Prior to becoming an ActionCOACH, Kazakis worked as an independent business person in creating successful supply chain relationships with many corporations not only in Australia but also globally.
“I excelled at building relationships in my business because I believe that when individuals are provided a landscape to excel and over perform - they always will,” he said. “In recent times, I have assisted some highly positioned executives in the banking sector excel with their objectives personally and gain promotions and also helped accelerate the performance of their teams in the process.”
Kazakis believes that every executive needs a trusted outsider looking over their shoulder mentoring and guiding them accordingly.
“In the tough corporate world, the strains on individuals in their professional and personal relationships as well as goals are immense – so it is critical for everyone to have a qualified Executive Coach by their side,” he said. “I personally have an Executive Coach and I trust him 100%.”
Kazakis will be concentrating on networking opportunities to promote his executive coaching services.
“My strategy is all about becoming accessible and available via the networking angle, which will ultimately lead to direct opportunities as well as referral business,” he said. “My established networks are strong and I have a reputation for being results-orientated. I look forward to growing this opportunity officially and leading the charge with my fellow selected coaches in Asia Pacific.”
Kazakis has a grand vision for his business.
“I see the opportunity to work with Elite sportspersons particularly in the AFL (Australian Football league) and NRL (National Rugby League) in assisting with transition management,”
Kazakis stresses that ActionCOACH, being the leader in business coaching and having a network of highly qualified coaches within its community, is a natural fit for executive coaching.
Kazakis found the training for executive coaching to be a perfect refresher.
“It’s solid in its delivery and approach and will make my coaching business more profitable,”
Winner of several awards, including the Global Action Man award (2006), the Victorian Rookie Coach award (2007) and the Asia Pacific Rookie Coach award (2007), Kazakis is looking forward to a more profitable business.
