Ann Gallagher embodies our higher levels of leadership themes. She goes beyond the probable to create the possible, views uncertainties as opportunities, and thinks conceptually - building on the why, when others focus on the what. Ann personifies what it means to be committed to her clients. Those she serves greatly benefit from her unique ability to turn complex issues into simple statements that can lead to success.

Gallagher Consulting Group was a tremendous asset in helping me find my focus and perspective and worked with me to align both my personal and professional goals. Their executive coaching program established practical, workable solutions that were custom to my situation and priorities. Overall, I was especially impressed by the wealth of information and helpful tools provided to me.
Ann got me to believe in the benefits and results executive coaching and leadership training and seminars can have on a business. Gallagher Consulting has assisted us in getting to the bottom of tricky issues that no one really wants to talk about. As an off-site facilitator, she helps the team work it out – she's in the trenches with everyone and you can't help but be fueled by her desire and determination to sort things out and get things done. I continue to use her services and encourage others to make themselves, and their businesses, more effective and efficient by calling Ann.
