Executive Coach Gary Wood, G.E. Wood and Associates

Working, Serving, Leading, since 1974

Leadership Coach Gary Wood understands the everyday reality of working with people. With over 45 years leading, and working alongside leaders in businesses and non-profits, he’s experienced the break-ups, make-ups, and shake-ups in organizations. He knows what it means to have to show up and make things happen, always being “on.” He’s put out the fires, resolved the conflicts and had the tough conversations. He’s carried the weight of anticipating and charting the course for the future. He’s felt the pressure of getting results. He knows what it is to have a tired body, brain and soul. He’s been encouraged, discouraged, needed courage and found courage. And thrived.

(Note: Gary’s lived a lot of life, so grab a coffee. This might take a while.)

Gary has served hundreds of leaders, executives and professionals, helping them beat burnout, get clarity and regain effectiveness on the projects and programs that really matter.
