is a seasoned veteran of organization design and development. He has
spent the better part of the last thirty years helping executives
and corporations make better decisions and move faster toward their
goals. His ability to help maximize leadership potential, bring diverse
teams together to plan and strategize around a business problem, and
create targeted action plans has made him a highly valued consultant.
After spending thirteen years in sales and marketing, he was drawn
to organizational development partly because he felt as if he "always
had an instinct for it" and partly because he was genuinely excited
about the educational component of it - which he still finds a very
rewarding part of his work. And, it's this focus on empowerment -
on partnership with the client - that enables Gil to achieve real
individual and systemic change.
What motivates Gil most is being able to apply his vast skills and
knowledge in different settings and really seeing the fruits of
his labor - "Watching people achieve superior performance and
results, and doing it in a way that leads to overall system success,
that's what it's all about."
Prior to developing his own consulting practice, Gil started down
the path of organization development for General Electric as a Programs
Manager with the Aircraft Engines business group, where he helped
implement the pioneering "Workout" process. His move to
Digital Equipment Corporation further cemented his abilities, where
he held several senior organization development management positions
in corporate marketing and worldwide corporate engineering.
Gil has worked with IBM, General Electric, Harvard Pilgrim Health
Care, Rockwell Automation, Duracell, Polaroid, and Residential Funding
He received a degree in Sociology (summa cum laude) from the University
of Hartford and has attended the Advanced Program in Organizational
Development and Human Resources Management at Columbia University.
