Executive Coaching for Leaders

Gary Wood

I provide executive coaching for leaders. I've been doing this for over 26 years. Clients come from many sectors, business, non-profit, government and institutions. To give you an idea of who they are, what follows is a shortened list of clients I have worked with.

Clients who engage my services are highly committed. They carry major responsibilities, and often a demanding workload. These men and women are under high expectations both from others and from themselves. 

"Very powerful … it was like having a telescopic view." SVP

"You probably kept me from stepping on my own land mines. Many thanks." CEO

Companies and Organizations

I provide executive coaching for leaders across many sectors, and across all top responsibility levels of the organizational chart. 

What is the importance of this to you? As a thought-partner, I am able to bring a depth of insight to our coaching because of the broad cross-section of individuals, thought and practices I am exposed to on a daily basis.

Executive Coaching for Leaders

Gary Woods

Assuming we determine there is a fit in working together, I would be honored to have you as one of my clients. We'll determine that by having a conversation together.

Be prepared to outline what it is that leads you to feel that working with an executive coach would be helpful right now. Also be ready to outline what it is you would like to achieve through our work together. 

Please note, I only accept a limited number of clients at any one time so I can deliver the best coaching possible. I set this standard so you can have a Coach who can help you make a difference where you are, and around the world.

"Gary has been a great partner. His insight and objectivity were invaluable to me and really kept me focused on my goals and objectives. Never did we cover a topic or issue that I felt Gary was not qualified to handle – he consistently provided thoughtful input and suggestions to all our meetings."
