I've had the pleasure of working with Gerry Hansen for quite a few years. Most recently I have hired her as an executive coach to work with some of the senior leaders in our organization. Her focus on leadership skills and team building have truly helped her clients move forward in a positive manner where staff have commented seeing impressive results with their immediate supervisor. She takes the time to listen to her client's issues and help create a development plan to excel in their leadership roles. She has worked closely with the client's teams to ensure the group dynamics are moving in the right direction and how to better interact with their leader. I would highly recommend Gerry is a great business partner who is results focused and is successful in moving leaders to the next level of leadership.Bill Davidovich, Senior Human Resources Executive

My search for an executive coach ended abruptly when I interviewed Gerry. Mid-way through our discussion, it clicked, and I knew she had what I was looking for.
Gerry helped me take an objective look at how my past and current behaviors and how they were contributing to my performance as a leader. She brought a balance of psychological insight as well as practical, real-world experience from her background that helped me take a new look at my own ways of being.
Gerry quickly got to the point where she knew me so well, that 20 seconds into a phone session, she could detect whether I was having a good day or if something was stressing me out. In these cases, we were always able to put the long-term thinking aside and focus on challenges at hand. It was great!
Finally, our coaching engagement ended with taking a long-term view and thinking about what would be next for me in my career. We always grow and improve our best when on a learning curve, and working with Gerry has helped me avoid the plateau of complacency and reset my expectations of myself for the next 10+ years of my career journey.
I cannot recommend Gerry highly enough, so if you have the opportunity to work with her as I did, you should do so!Nick Buckner, Hewlett Packard Enterprise VP, Sales Operations - Strategy, Planning and Analytics
