Meet your ActionCOACHChris Mackey
Creating valuable solutions to improve and grow your business
When he was very young, Chris realized that in order to succeed in the world, he would have to be different. Growing up with a number of health challenges that had him in and out of hospitals for long stretches at a time, he learned to become very self-sufficient and creative in his thinking. Although a very bright child, Chris was diagnosed as being dyslexic and found normal schooling in regional NSW difficult, so he left at age fifteen. However, dyslexia had taught him to be an excellent problem solver – he needed to approach things differently than most people and this served him very well in both learning and in business.
Immediately after leaving school, Chris went to work for the Griffith Coop Society as a paint consultant for two years. The irony of this was not lost on him – he is mildly colourblind. Despite this, he did well, as he had already become an expert at turning perceived weaknesses into strengths.
Chris then moved on to the world of supermarkets, starting as a trainee manager. Through hard work, determination and a healthy competitive drive, he began climbing the proverbial corporate ladder, navigated by his strong organizational abilities and creative problem-solving. Relationship building and his ability to get the job done have been the foundations of who he is today. Along the way, Chris joined what is now the Metcash Company as a buyer, where his career took off. Soon Chris was known as the “go-to” person, the problem solver. He was the conduit to launching the IGA brand supermarkets in Australia and then went on to become their National Marketing and Promotions Manager.
In his over 42 years of experience, what has given Chris the most pleasure is working with individuals and teams to build and grow businesses. He has a unique way of connecting with people and helping them to recognize the value of their own special skills and talents so that they too can find creative solutions to the challenges that inevitably arise.
Now, as a professional business coach, Chris is an integral part of his clients’ businesses, assisting them
in re-defining their future through his guidance, growth strategies, systemizing, people management skills and much more.
“Every business can benefit from having a business coach – often it is hard enough being in business for yourself – why do it alone?”
Having worked in Senior Management roles within some of Australia’s leading companies, Chris has honed his skills in developing and empowering people to deliver results for the organisation but also how to positively impact their lives so they want to do their best and love what they do. As a Business Coach, Chris is now sharing his knowledge with business owners, so they can receive the financial & operational benefits of his experience.
My mission is to teach an individual how to recognize the value of their unique skill s so that they can find creative solutions to the challenges. I know what it is like to not be recognized for your achievements, and we can celebrate yours. I get rewarded for the value that I can bring to my clients.
