Las Vegas, NV (PressExposure) December 08, 2009 -- Satyawati Susanto, general manager of PT. Ajidharmamas Tritunggal Sakti, a chemical company, recently won two awards within days of each other: the Standard National Indonesia award and Indonesia most influenced Woman of the Year 2009.
Susanto gave a speech about her success and gave thanks to her ActionCOACH Business Coach Prijono Nugroho, Indonesia Master Licensee Herman Susanto and to Brad Sugars directly at the "Billionaire in Training" dinner in Jakarta on November 25.
Nugroho has been coaching Susanto and her chemical company for a bit more than two years, ever since she hired him through his Business Rich workshop in October 2007. At that time, PT. Ajidharmamas Tritunggal Sakti had a turnover of more than $15 million.
"It's amazing how ActionCOACH system works," Nugroho said. "When Susanto first hired me, our goals were to improve the company net profit - it increased quadruplicate in the first six months - her leadership skills, how to be ON the business instead of IN the business, and finally, create a winning team."
Nugroho said Susanto has learned a lot from his business coaching sessions. "She is the role model for our business coaching practice - very open minded, positive, and her motto is 'create a masterpiece every day; be the Michael Angelo of your life,'" he said. "One important thing I've learned from her is to always stay one step ahead in terms of coaching skills. Just by coaching, I improve my coaching skills."
But Nugroho or Susanto never expected that her business and managing skills would garner not one, but two awards: The Standard National Indonesia (SNI) award and the Indonesia most Influenced Woman of the Year 2009.
The SNI, a non-departmental government institution with main responsibility to develop and conduct standardization activities in Indonesia, was established with reference to Presidential Decree of the Republic of Indonesia. One of its main objectives is to improve product quality of companies in Indonesia. To eligible for an SNI award, businesses must first be a member of companies (SME and Corporate) who use and promote the SNI in their business. Once determining that, the SNI will send a team to conduct a five-month assessment.
After the assessment, winners are chosen based on improvements of a national product, conformity assessment and competitiveness, Susanto's company won the SNI award for the medium-size company/producer category.
"The SNI Body, the Ministry of Research and Technology of Indonesia and the Ministry of Industry of Indonesia nominated Mrs. Susanto," Nugroho said.
For her Indonesia most Influenced Woman of the Year award, she won based on performance and contribution she give back to the community.
Nugroho alerted ActionCOACH CEO Brad Sugars of Susanto's achievements. Upon hearing this news, Sugars asked for Susanto to speak at his "Billionaire in Training" dinner in Jakarta to share her and her company's journey to winning both awards.
However, just because Susanto won these awards doesn't mean the business coaching work is done. "Next up, our goals are to finish the implementation of rapid transformation to her organization, expand the company to three times its size and go public by the end of 2012," Nugroho said. "Her personal goal is to run a profitable company without her being in the company."
