Strategic Coaching – Client Testimonials

Working with Gil as a thinking partner has delivered tremendous value to me personally and professionally. He’s helped me think through the big picture, frame up tough challenges in productive ways, anticipate and plan for difficult situations before they arise, challenge myself, and – maybe most importantly – reconnect with my own sense of self-confidence and joy at finding and doing work I love.

—Rodney McDonald, President, McDonald Sustainability Group

I went to Gil for his experience in sustainability, but received much more in return. He has a unique ability to ask open-ended questions which help you get to the heart of your specific challenges. His approach is sustainability-focused, psychology-inspired, tough love coaching. I am glad I hired him.
—Fortune 500 Utility Company Executive

Gil has the ability to bring just the right amount of strength, love, and wisdom to the people he works with. His passion and advocacy for your authentic success in sustainability and all thing business (and life), make him a powerful force for your greatest future and a compassionate space for you to vision, strategize and navigate through that future.
—Anese Cavanaugh, Founder, Craft Impact Leadership Program

It’s a nice combination to get both content & process expertise from one person. Life coaches without sustainability backgrounds were helpful, but they didn’t know where to push us—where we’re pushing the edge and not. With Gil I didn’t need to burn any time explaining things.
—Fortune 500 Climate Director

Working with Gil as a strategic coach and mentor helped me understand why I do what I do, and helped me fundamentally re-structure my approach to achieving my goals and aspirations—in ways that I know will stick.
