Leadership Workshops & Corporate Keynote Speaker

Welcome to Gaynor Consulting

Building high performance teams through strong leadership has been a lifelong passion. In 2003 I left my own leadership career (see bio) and opened Gaynor Consulting to offer my experience through workshops (both in-house and off-site), individual coaching, speaking, facilitation and consulting services.

There is so much faddish thinking in leadership today – each new bestseller offers another new "better" way. My experience has convinced me that all great leadership is built on timeless practices. The most successful leaders have always done the same things well. They advance a vision they care about; they care about people and mission; they provide skillful direction; they build accountability; they communicate and coach well; they are purposeful about culture, and they have great performance management skills. These are among the topics I focus on. I offer the same practices I used so successfully as my career advanced from sales supervisor to president of a large daily newspaper with over 700 employees. My work is highly practical. I want people leaving a workshop, keynote or coaching session with practices they can put to work right away and I deliver each one personally - no substitutes.

As an individual coach, I am as comfortable with senior executives as I am with entry-level leaders. I offer a trustworthy sounding board (someone who has walked the path personally), striving to help each client make thoughtful choices and develop his or her fullest leadership potential.

Is your team performing at its best? Are you giving the members of your leadership team the opportunity to develop their skill sets? Are you thinking about your own development? Call or write me to learn more.

LEADERSHIP ARTICLES

October 2017

Follow Well To Lead Well
