Who I Am
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times."
I've worked with the best of teams, and the worst of teams. I've seen, heard about, or directly experienced virtually any problem, barrier, or roadblock which is preventing you and your team from reaching your potential. I've also had the privilege of being a part of and learning from some incredible organizations and teams who truly exemplified excellence.
As a public and onsite trainer/speaker, holistic psychotherapist, and life coach, I've successfully worked with individuals and business groups who sought out my guidance and became better. I've also worked with people and teams that were forced to interact with me because their boss "made" them; I helped them, too. If you want someone who knows what works and has the passion and commitment to make it work for you...let's chat.
Now, here's the official blurb:
For almost 20 years, I have worked with thousands of individuals and hundreds of business teams (as a holistic psychotherapist, coach, and award-winning international trainer and speaker) to facilitate sustainable, solution-focused change.
Through my training on systems theory and group dynamics, learning and motivation, and neurobiology, I have a comprehensive view of "what works". In addition, my diverse experience of working with thousands of people in 49 states and on 2 continents (ranging from native New Yorkers to Native Alaskans and from the FBI to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) has allowed me to pinpoint some of the universal characteristics of healthy individuals and teams.
(Sounds impressive,doesn't it?)
Gracey effectively simplified years worth of materials in a couple of hours. I thought I'd heard it all before, but Gracey "connected-the-dots" for me in a way so that I can actually use the concepts in my crazy life.
Oh, and she's kinda funny, too!
