From Greg Neil, CEO, GNA, Inc.

There is only one thing I do, and that is business executive coaching. I coach people to have levels of success that they really want; that they have always wanted and never had, and that they have never even dreamed as possible yet.

In the most functional business cultures where employees are thriving at work accomplishing new, higher levels of productivity resulting in performance breakthroughs, businesses are very profitable and successful. These higher levels of productivity live between people doing what they are inspired to do and what they are committed to do.

 

GNA Engages People

In all the national surveys of people’s actual engaged effort is 30%. They’re about 30% productive of their optimum discretionary effort. And, it’s been hovering at 30% for decades.

We build the foundational infrastructure to support people thriving at work at every step and all levels of the business, from interviewing new potential employees all the way to collecting final monies.

GNA is changing the way the industry does business. When you offer employees honor, dignity, autonomy, accountability, and respect, they thrive at work, productivity goes way up, and profits follow. We inspire win/win scenarios, where what is best for the employee turns out to be what is best for the business. The last 22 years of success with businesses demonstrates that when leaders take care of their people, when they have an affinity for them and take action consistent with that – supporting employees, empowering them, coaching them—employee engagement goes up dramatically. This freedom-based management is the new paradigm. In empowered business cultures, employees become the driving force of the business.

 

GNA Vision

When we say “the business”, what we’re referring to is the people that work in that business. At GNA our experience has been that a very high percentage of employees are not only basically good, but sometimes even great, and sometimes completely awesome.

The defining characteristic that moves businesses from Good to Great is not only how well they take care of their customers, but how well they take care of their employees.

Everyone loves playing for the winning team. GNA says that every business has the opportunity to be great by supporting the greatness of the people working in that business.

GREGORY NEIL

Chief Executive Officer
I grew up around building and construction. When I was a kid my father was a schoolteacher, and during his summers off he worked in construction. Whenever we needed something, we built it ourselves, decks, patios, even minor upgrades. So naturally when I got out of school and got a job it was in construction.
One day when I was 20 years old, my boss had me and another other guy distribute a large stack of sheetrock that was collapsing the corner of the 2nd floor of the motel we were building. After figuring out I had just carried my half of 20,000 tons of rock in 3 days, I realized if I could do that, I could run my own business. So, the next day, I told my boss I was starting my own business. I can still see the look on his face, a combination of curiosity, concern, and amusement.
The first year or so was a bit thin, but it wasn’t long before I got licensed, (#428883) and was making way more money than all my friends who were still in college. My business grew and financed my early studies in psychology, human motivation, and organizational transformation, as well as exploring every great restaurant in San Francisco, and a lot of fun weekend ski trips to Lake Tahoe.
I never saw a career as a business coach coming, but one day many years later, while traveling I found myself meeting a fellow traveler named Simon for coffee every morning. We were in India at the time, and he was from Germany. To my surprise one morning, Simon invited me to come to Germany so we could work together. A few months later, just before my visa expired and down to my last $100 and a plane ticket, I took him up on his offer. With his introduction, I got a one-year contract to offer sales coaching to a software company with 9 locations all over Germany.
The year was 1997…. now 22 years later, and over 8,000 weekly meetings with companies all over the US, Germany, and a bit of time in Canada, I have had lots of time to study the challenges of our industry, and put together a curriculum that offers solutions integrating the best practices in all areas of business, combined with over 40 years of study in human motivation and organizational transformation.
We take the success of your business seriously. The GNA curriculum offers a step by step simple, practical, yet powerful methodology, to unleash the real potential of leadership, ownership, and accountability at all levels of your business. Our commitment at GNA is to build a new way for all of us to engage in the way we do business.

KEN BARNARD

Finance Genius
Ken was a GM for a Boston-based restoration firm when he met Greg. They worked together for a few years and grew the business from $3 to $12 million. The owner offered the business for sale, but Ken decided not to buy it and went into the business for himself instead. 4 years later, Ken’s restoration business is thriving as measured by no debts, mid six figure cash reserves and a new island house on Cape Cod that he paid cash for.
