Facilitating the Development of the Executive Committee with a New CEO

Gary supported the Battelle Executive Committee during our early formative stages under a new CEO to establish alignment across the team and to assess and catalyze a new strategic direction. I served as the President of one of the business divisions and a member of the newly formed leadership team.

Gary enabled a reinvigorated sense of clarity on priorities while helping us to make personal connections with each other that enabled unity toward our common goals. Gary is a true facilitator, creatively guiding a team through a series of discoveries so that outcomes and decisions are shared and owned. He does so in a highly refined manner that brings forward both individual and collective strengths and opportunities.

With his guidance, the business leaders at Battelle improved their effectiveness. I found Gary's supportive approach extremely insightful during these formative stages.
