Get to know GVG

Guided Ventures Group is an Executive Coaching and Leadership Advisory practice in support of leaders who want to be more effective and drive higher levels of team performance and results.

Our “human first” approach acknowledges that getting discretionary effort is more challenging than ever and leadership skills have shifted drastically from command and control to coach and collaborate.

We specialize in building capabilities around emotional intelligence, adaptive communication and creating an environment that inspires and elevates people.

Are your leaders ready for the journey? We can be your guide on the path to great results through better leadership.

Our Philosophy:

We believe that growth and results require awareness, choice and connection.

At GVG, we know that organizations don’t change, people do. Great leaders realize this. They know success is based on hiring the right people and creating an environment where everyone can bring their best selves to work every day.

We believe people want to be inspired and do good work. Our job as leaders is to help them get there. We start by understanding that we are not just employees but also individuals.

From there, we guide leaders and teams as they improve their leadership effectiveness, vision and strategy, all critical to drive team and personal performance.

GVG brings a wealth of coaching methods, tools and insights from years of real leadership experience to support your leaders.

Step One – Awareness

The true path to change starts with awareness. It can be awareness of self, others, context or all of the above. Awareness is ALWAYS step one.

Step Two – Choice

Every choice we make is a vote for or against who we are becoming as a person and a leader and whether or not we will meet our desired goals.

Step Three – Connection

Focus on the most important actions consistently and inspire others by being true to yourself. Connection helps us stay on the path we choose.

 Our Purpose: 

A better world through inspired leadership.

Our Mission: 

GVG is dedicated to guiding leaders in creating human-centered organizations with great results through shifting mindset and building an environment of collaboration that inspires and elevates people.

C.O.R.E. Values

Our approach supports our C.O.R.E. values as well.

They include:

C – Curiosity with an open mind (versus judgment)

We bring intellectual humility and a growth mindset for always learning and trying new things.

O – Ownership for self and actions

We take personal accountability for our mindset and attitude and the commitments we make to ourselves and others.

R – Respect for others, disagree on issues, not people

Everyone deserves respect just for being human. We value diversity of thought and experiences and recognize there is rarely one right answer to a problem.

E – Empathy and compassion for self and others

We have all come to this world from different experiences. Taking another’s viewpoint is critical for building relationships and connection.
