The Uniqueness of Coaching

THERAPY typically deals with the past and emotional and relational healing. MENTORING is training a person to do what you are doing. CONSULTING focuses on specific problems or challenges and offers expert advice. COACHING deals with the present, helping you find answers within yourself and focusing on a preferred future.

Consider Gary Crawford Leadership Coaching!

Here is what others have said:

  • Gary Crawford is a godly man with tremendous leadership skills. Coaches need a coach; having Gary as mine has been a tremendous value to me. His vast ministry experience, creative spiritual insight & ability to think strategically, yet practically, allows him to engage with clients at many levels. Every leader needs a “Dr. Gary Crawford” in their life. (Bob Durfey, Retired senior military officer & Executive Coach)

  • Gary has a rare gift of being able to listen empathetically while at the same time affirming and validating a person’s experience. Gary provided a lot of support and encouragement to me during a time of significant transition in my life. In only an hour, Gary helped me to gain clarity on what I wanted for the next phase of my life and helped me create a list of specific action steps to reach my goals. Gary truly has a special and unique gift for leading and coaching others and I would recommend anyone who is seeking clarity and direction in their life to seek out the gifts that Gary so generously offers. (Katharine Lavenhagen)

If experience speaks, I should have volumes to fill. In the past 44 years I have been an executive for a major insurance firm, a church planter, and founder of a stewardship firm serving nearly 500 major churches, helping them raise a billion dollars.

Dr. Gary Crawford is in his own class as a leader, coach and trainer. I have had the opportunity to closely observe this man in life’s most challenging situations for over 15 years. The most unique characteristic seems to be the ability to be a visionary leader while mobilizing leaders to accomplish extraordinary feats, with a collaborative management style.

As a trainer, I have observed Dr. Crawford in settings for a colosseum filled assembly, small group training, and one-on-one coaching. The components of Gary’s personality allow him to relate to those from all stations of life’s strata. A good listener, people are put at ease, making the training a naturally occurring event.

-Bill Price, Founder, Impact Stewardship

"The coaching investment Dr. Crawford has made in my life as a leader has given me the confidence to become and do, accomplish and lead effectively."

"The power of personal growth is in applying simple truths with fanatical consistency. Gary not only shares simple but profound truths, he also walks with me to help me consistently apply them. In conflict situations I tended to become reserved and unwilling to share my thoughts. Gary has coached me to share my thoughts in healthy ways that have improved my marriage and work relationships within just a few weeks of meeting him. Gary has the wisdom to identify the core issues involved and how to directly resolve them."
