From 1998-2001 and then from 2002-2006, my job was to initiate, grow and manage innovation teams addressing two vastly different business and technical opportunities, one in the US and the other in Asia. The challenges were overwhelming including making the case for funding, hiring and developing people, building customer and stakeholder relationships, and growing the leadership to make the teams self-sustaining and successful. I was lucky to have Gary's coaching in both these endeavors. He has an extraordinary understanding of all the complexities that impact an organization, and deep insight into people and what motivates them. He uses his tremendous intellect to absorb and organize complex issues, and coaches by questioning and guiding you to reach your own solutions and develop your own capabilities.
