Beat Burnout

Clarity, solutions, and support for high-demand, high-intensity periods of work and leadership

Gary Woods

Leadership and Executive Coaching

One on One Executive Coaching Since 1998

Along with the leaders, executives and senior-level professionals who retain my leadership and executive coaching services, you share these characteristics.

  • You are highly committed 
  • You carry major responsibilities 
  • You have a demanding workload in an often changing environment
  • You manage high expectations, both from yourself and from others 
  • You MUST remain productive, even during periods of significant stress 
  • You feel overloaded, or maybe even on the edge of burnout 

Contact me to discuss how I might be of assistance. Here's what clients work on: In their own words.

For over 25 years, my job has been clear. Help leaders and executives maximize contribution and achievement while minimizing those things that can lead to overload and burnout.” 

Executive Coach, Gary Wood

Reflect on the Benefits of an Executive Coach


Three or six months from today, what difference will leadership and executive coaching, and specifically our working together have made? For you? Your team? On your key objectives? 

  • Are you leading through an extended, challenging, and stressful period in the organization?
  • Do you feel like you're trying to accomplish objectives in the face of constant volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity?
  • Are you working on sluggish initiatives that are in need of clarity and momentum? 
  • Are you simply trying to up your game as a leader?

In order to gain the benefits of an executive coach, take some time to reflect on your current situation, and what it is that you’d actually like to work on. 

Then, let’s schedule a conversation to discuss what's happening, what's needed, and what's next.

I’ll answer any questions you have. 

“My time with Gary Wood was an investment not only professionally, but also personally. In selecting an executive coach, it was important to me that I work with someone who comes from a place of shared beliefs and values and I found that in Gary. Through our 2+ years in collaboration together, I gained a better understanding of myself as a leader, developed new confidence in partnering with senior leadership, and landed my first executive-level role.”

“Thank you so much for being there for me, especially at times when I really was lost about what to do.”

Executive Coaching and Support for Leaders Feeling Burned Out at Work

Concerned Leader

Most of the leaders I serve retain my executive coaching services when they know they are at a crossroad and must address the following ...

  • High stress: There is a need to deal with persistent intensity, overload, or burnout. 

Let's minimize those things that lead to overload and burnout.

  • Their own sluggish performance: There is a need to regain personal productivity and effectiveness that has been eroded over time. 

Let's elevate those things that sustain contribution and achievement.

One things is for sure. You still need to keep things moving forward, but it’s tough. A hard, sometimes toxic, mix of situations, people, and expectations have left you feeling drained.

As experienced a leader as you are, you may feel like you are dealing with some significant stress, maybe even on the edge of burnout.

I invite you to connect to discuss what's possible. I've professionally coached in this type of situation for over 25 years. Sometimes one conversation changes everything.   

"With Gary as a non-judgmental sounding board, I was able to say out loud those things that were clouding my outlook and making me lose sight of the bright possibilities."  


Executive Coaching for Leadership Problems and Solutions


Whether you work and lead within:

  • Corporate or Nonprofit
  • Government or Business
  • Faith-based or General-market 

I am noted for zeroing in quickly to help you clarify and act on those few things which make the biggest difference in moving you and your priorities forward. That's important when you might find yourself under significant pressure.   

After many years and many thousands of hours of personal coaching, strategic planning work and client success, I understand how to help committed individuals regain and increase their capacity to work and lead through those more challenging periods.

A perfect example of toggling between problems and solutions occurred as I provided healthcare executive coaching during the Covid pandemic. I had the privilege of providing coaching support to a number of healthcare executives during that time.

To say they were strained almost sounds like an understatement now. Coaching made a difference during a difficult few years. You can read a little more of that story here.

Call ME to work through those few demanding, extended periods of intensity.

Christian Executive Leadership Coaching

Lion Character

A large percentage of my clients identify as Christian leaders, executives or senior-level professionals.

Some are able to be very public about their Christian beliefs.

Most work in settings where their private faith informs their public behavior and thinking.

Every one of my clients wants to be sincerely living out the positive characteristics of a Christian leader to a watching world that longs for their public and private leaders to "walk the talk." 

All bring passion and high-level contribution to their work.

Whether you work in a secular or faith-based setting, we will custom design coaching to address your unique situation. I have no difficulty working in either setting. More information. 

Perhaps like never before, navigating leadership in 2024 will pose new challenges that will necessitate Christian executives taking advantage of coaching and support. 

Since 1998, I have been privileged to serve many hundreds of leaders, executives, and senior-level professionals, all wanting to run better businesses, lead more influential organizations and guide cause, project or program initiatives to success. I would be honoured to explore how I might best be able to serve you.

Leadership and Executive Coaching Sponsored by Your Organization

Often, individuals are sponsored by their company or organization for leadership and executive coaching. While I've worked with leaders from many sectors, they have one thing in common ... they HAVE to keep doing their job and bringing in the results.

Hopefully your organization will be interested in seeing you do well. Having said that, most executive coaching clients are paying their own coaching fees when it comes to dealing with overload and burnout. Simply, they want to keep it confidential. 

I can help you identify those FEW THINGS that will
make the biggest difference moving forward and
know which ONE to concentrate on first.

I provide support. I work with leaders, executives and professionals privately and confidentially. The support is personal, live and full of care and understanding. I'm not working from theory. I've been there and understand what's going on. Let's explore how I might be of service to you. Contact me here.
