A Message From Greg

Thank you for your interest in the services I provide and your consideration in allowing me into your organization. I am sincerely humbled, honored and appreciative.

My mission and focus is the development of the individual, team and organization. My vision is that as a result of reading my books, attending my workshops, experiencing one of my keynote speeches and/or a recipient of my coaching/consulting, you will leave a better person. When this happens, your organization will naturally be a better place to work.

I’m driven by a laser-like focus on the power of purpose while reaching the highest levels of engagement. My first book, Building Cathedrals: The Power of Purpose, provides readers a blueprint for personal, team and organizational effectiveness. In its fifth printing, the principles of leadership, redemption, purpose, engagement and touching others in a deep and meaningful way continues to inspire readers while the keynote speech is moving thousands in the pursuit of excellence.

My second book, Soft Skills Field Manual (4th printing), accompanies the workshop, Soft Skills Boot Camp, and is based on the essential skills needed for succeeding in the workplace. The book and the workshop are unique in that I expand the concept of soft skills to be much more than basic work skills. In short, soft skills are ALL the dynamics (purpose, engagement, communication, appreciating differences, teamwork, emotional intelligence, culture, customer satisfaction, forgiveness and reconciliation, grit, problem-solving, etc.) outside the technical aspects of one’s job.

I’m delivering this powerful workshop and keynote speech to business/industry, associations, education, government agencies and prison systems (Reentry). In fact, every inmate in Kentucky Corrections has access to my Soft Skills Boot Camp and receives “Good Time Served” off their prison sentence. Additionally, my Soft Skills has been featured on the Ohio Correction System’s Hope TV program.

I’ve been called, the “Real Deal.” Guilty as charged. I don’t hold back. I’ve lived it, breathed it, been promoted for it and fired by a really good manager but a horrible leader! And as a result of that experience, I’m more passionate than ever of spreading the word that it’s not “management OR leadership,” it’s “management AND leadership.” Most organizations, in my opinion, are over-managed and under-led. My goal is to assist managers, leaders and organizations in creating that balance for which everyone is yearning. Building those “Cathedrals” versus simply “laying bricks” and “building walls.”

Considered an expert in human behavior and organization dynamics, Greg Coker's vision is as a result of reading his books, attending his keynotes/workshops; recipients are moved to achieve higher levels of performance and their organizations better places to work. He is the author of Building Cathedrals: The Power of Purpose and the Soft Skills Field Manual. His third book, Healing the Wounds: Forgiveness & Reconciliation in the Workplace, is due on book shelves later this year. His clients include education, business/industry, correctional facilities (Reentry) and high performance individuals who benefit from his personal coaching.

Battle-tested wisdom and experience working for you and your organization!
