About Coach Gary
I have an undying passion to make a difference for people by coaching leaders in the areas that will make the biggest difference. Business coaching is the avenue I choose to inspire others to have their dreams fulfilled. I love it when a client comes to me and says, “not only have we transformed our organization, but I have a family that I have fallen back in love with and I feel like a different person.”
There’s nothing like walking into an organization and hearing a cheerful greeting from every employee I pass in the hallway “Hi Coach Gary”. It’s a glorious day when I know that I have earned that level of respect and then I know THEY GOT IT. They know my word is gold and when I say I am 100% committed to their dreams I am being completely authentic.
After a long entrepreneurial journey of owning businesses and a difficult, but successful ten year career in real estate, I realized there was something missing in my life. I realized my ego had gotten too big and my heart had gotten to small. The truth is although I had reached most of my financial goals by the age of 30 I was not happy.
I met Jim Selman and he said the words “Business Coach” back in 1989 when no one recognized the term, including me. But the words rang in my ear like no others ever had. I was so inspired by this great industry and getting involved with an industry that really truly made a difference for people. This was a path I could be proud of. I also realized, however inauthentic I was at the time, that this work was a way that I could also transform my own life and commit to staying on a path that would keep me fulfilled and honest. Integrity, commitment and accountability come at all new levels. But, mastering these distinctions made and makes all the difference.
After 20 years of providing business coaching to literally hundreds of organizations and every industry imaginable I believe I can say without a doubt that I am an expert on human performance, sales, cultural design, customer service, strategic planning and leadership. I cannot imagine that an issue I have never faced would show up. But the stories and the faces are different and the level of the challenge is always an exciting venture that I am thoroughly excited to commit to. Any leader who is to the point of throwing his or hands up and can say, “please help me I don’t know how to get beyond this point”, I am there. I love removing those barriers and seeing new found freedom on people’s faces. It’s what I live for.
About eight years ago my personal goal to transform the world really took hold and I realized the only way to make that happen was through sharing our methodology. I began developing, what some have declared, as the leading training model for business coaches.
I have facilitated over 5000 meetings and retreats and have spoken at over 200 events on topics such as: Business Coaching, High Impact Leadership, Building a Powerful Team, Holding Employees Accountable, Strategic Planning Made Easy, Excellence in Customer Service, Training a Successful Sales Team and many more.
My articles have been published in Fortune, Entrepreneur, The Sacramento Bee, Business Journals and Managing Success Magazine as well as many others.
I am available to any leader who would like to discuss the impact business coaching can have on their organization. Please call me at (916) 922-7766. I am often traveling around the world, but check my messages daily and will get back to you as soon as possible. Blessings, Coach Gary
