Candid, engaging and caring, Gregg's passion for leadership development is infectious. His demanding Appreciation-Confrontation-Accountability approach to coaching and training has earned him the respect, sometimes begrudgingly, of clients everywhere.

Gregg’s popular book entitled Unleashed! The Leader as Coach is based on the principles of the highly-experiential workshop, Leader as Coach. The second book in the series co-authored with Ron Crossland entitled, The Leadership Experience: From Individual Success to Organization Significance addresses the necessity for leaders to advance beyond personal success to create a lasting organizational legacy. Gregg’s third book co-authored with Bruna Martinuzzi, entitled The Power to Lead: Lessons in Creating Your Unique Masterpiece, explores the basic building block of the leader – you! Using the metaphor of the art of oil painting, the authors challenge leaders to explore every facet of their lives in preparation for leadership.
