Executives improved relationships with their direct reports through coaching in ICF study
Our 25+ year old national non-profit (NN) was having difficulties in developing strategies for continued growth and maximizing our staff utilization. As a result, we arranged for Gavin to thoroughly evaluate the organization, including extensive evaluations of the staff. The detailed analysis he performed was incredibly insightful, aiding our Board of Trustees in reevaluating a direction for the group. The Board of NN is made up of professionals with a variety of backgrounds and diverse personalities. Gavin did a remarkable job in working with all members, using our numerous comments and seamlessly melding them into practical and implementable suggestions. The quality of these insights will aid NN as we set our long range goals for the organization. I highly recommend Gavin as a HR consultant and look forward to working with him in the future.

As part of a Chasm Partners search, I was offered the opportunity to work with an executive coach - Gavin - to support on boarding into my newly created position. Their philosophy is to give new executives the best possible chance of success in their new role by understanding the new culture, focusing on the most important deliverables and to build out key relationships in order to support a successful transition. Gavin was extremely helpful in each respective area bringing discipline, structure and feedback that I continue to leverage even today. While Gavin's approach is very clear and defined, his style was very open to additional and urgent areas I wanted to explore. With the trust, professionalism and relationship that we built together over a few months, I’d certainly work with Gavin again in the future. In fact, I very much recommend him to other executives looking to enhance their professional impact.
Steven Denys,Vice President at Glooko
We identified an opportunity to use Gavin's coaching and leadership experience to fine tune and increase the impact of our leadership team through the way they work together. Gavin worked with myself as CHRO and our Chairman, to identify leadership improvement areas for an already high performing business. This created the insights and focus for a team workshop aimed at delivering a specific style and methodology to be used in leadership meetings going forward. We were able to see the immediate adoption and impact. Gavin's personal style and collaborative approach were a key elements in this outcome.
Leslie Glenn,CHRO at Remedy Partners
Gavin provided me with a very deliberate process that helped me define my goals, understand my strengths and define a game plan that has empowered me with both confidence and clear next steps. This process was complemented by Gavin’s engaging personality and management style, making the whole experience fun and rewarding.
Matt Dumas,Ecosys Consumer Analytics (New York)
Gavin has an understanding of international HR, people processes and international employment principles which he applies with a rare blend of subtlety, compassion and rigour. I would be happy to recommend him to others seeking these skills.
Jonathan Sinclair,Group Finance Director Pentland Brands (London)
The growth and change in our business over several years required significant coaching and development of our senior leaders. Gavin has contributed enormously in this process, both through his personal coaching skills and through initiating and guiding tailored personal development programs for our senior leaders. With this contribution, Gavin has driven both business growth as well as personal growth of the individuals involved.
Peter Huijboom,CEO (Amsterdam)
Gavin has a great skill in his ability to teach, persuade and, when necessary, coerce people. He made a huge contribution to the unity of the company. More generally, he played a key role in our success in creating an outstanding culture of synergy and pride. It was the envy of the competition and frequently quoted as the reason for people joining and, on many occasions, returning to the company.
Adrian Chedore,Global CEO (Hong Kong)
Gavin’s role in communication management during the period of significant corporate change was absolutely fundamental to what was achieved. I believe our colleagues are now seeing the real value of the open, honest dialogue that he managed so successfully. This skill places him outside of the traditional HR Executive model in my view and is what made you such a vital part of the leadership team.
