Garry Kishbaugh is an accomplished business coach and keynote speaker with over 20 years experience advising business owners and entrepreneurs on how to sustainably grow their company.
Garry started his career in the medical field but soon transitioned to owning and/or operating several small businesses. While managing these companies, Garry began to notice a trend amongst each of the organizations. He and his employees were working long hours and not seeing the growth they should have been achieving. While each company was successful, Garry knew they could be doing better.
He sought out the guidance of a business coach and his then company quickly began to reap the benefits. Over the course of the next several years, Garry’s business coach helped his company increase sales by 450% while acquiring three of its competitors. Profitability was 40% greater than the industry average and he was attracting excellent employees, all while maintaining a more manageable work/life balance.
Garry moved on to become an executive for a Fortune 500 company but saw that even they experienced many of the same challenges smaller businesses experienced. Considering the incredible impact his business coach had made on his company as well as his personal life, Garry became inspired to begin his business coaching career to help others the way his coach had helped him.
Over the last 20 years, Garry’s valuable insights and expertise in business development and management have helped companies of all sizes and industries achieve both short-term and long-term goals. He helps his clients work more effectively verses harder with longer hours.
It’s his belief that having a business coach isn’t just for new or struggling companies, it’s an important compliment to any size organization at any level. Every famous athlete or celebrity has a coach, and every famous business mogul or influencer has some kind mentor. Having a coach is an opportunity to gain a fresh outlook on industry trends, your company structure and culture, system effectiveness, marketing and sales efforts, and effective management strategies.
In addition to business and leadership coaching, Garry is an experienced public speaker. He has been a leader at conferences, seminars, and hosts his own series of programs that have motivated audiences to take action and change their life.
Many consultants and coaches focus on either the finance and operations side, or the sales and marketing side of the business. What they typically overlook is the cultural component. In our case, Garry was able to identify key areas on the cultural side first, which then brought everything else into sync.
Instead of the owner (me) leading the charge and filling in the performance gaps, managers, supervisors and employees (after our cultural evolution) were able to step up and accept responsibility for the company’s performance - giving me more time to work on the business vs. in the business.
The biggest impact has been on my stress level and my outlook on the business as well as my life. I no longer feel as if the business is an anchor, but an asset that will help my family reach our goals. I would recommend that any business person that wants to grow or become more profitable, while strategically planning for the future, should work with Garry Kishbaugh.
Garry Kishbaugh has helped our customers generate cash flow that allowed them to fund a comfortable lifestyle for their families. His philosophy teaches businesses to assimilate into the cultural tendencies of their customers to expand and attract more business. Garry has helped our clients make more money and build better organization skills, while simultaneously reducing the numbers of hours they worked. I strongly recommend that all of our clients work with Garry.
Garry is engaging, thought provoking, intuitive, disciplined, encouraging and experienced. His book of life lessons and common sense approach is helping me in my processes and he has instilled in me that everything can be tested and measured. My business is improving, my thoughts and actions are changing and my company is adding more structure and increasing revenues. I am owe the success regarding changes to the coaching I receive from Garry and am fortunate to have him as part of my team.
I was first introduced to Garry Kishbaugh’s strategies and tactics several years ago. If you are serious about taking your business and your career to the next level, you should work with Garry and implement his strategies. The strategies will work whether you are a Fortune 500 company or a small business.
When I first started working with Garry Kishbaugh, I told him my goal was to grow my business by 40% over the next three years. Garry challenged me to think bigger and set the goal to grow the business by 233% in a slightly longer time period. He completely changed my mindset, and not only will we achieve our larger goal, but we will do so in less than half the time. Garry recently challenged me to think differently about an opportunity that I otherwise would not have considered. This opportunity turned out to be so lucrative that the first year’s profit will be 20x his annual coaching fee. I would highly recommend his coaching services to any business large or small.
There were many occasions that Garry Kishbaugh coached us into taking courses of action other than what we had originally anticipated utilizing. In each case, the new direction was the correct action. Due to his coaching, we were able to sell a multi-billion company, resulting in $330,000 in additional revenue.
Garry Kishbaugh has impacted my management skills by giving me fantastic “tools” to deal with team members of varying personalities. He has great analogies I draw from. I have more meaningful discussions with team members as well as my partners because I better understand their individual personalities better. On the personal side, Garry has impacted my life by relating the business coaching practices to my home life. Much of the interactions at work coincide with those at home. I would highly recommend that other businesses utilize Garry’s coaching because he not only helps with difficult decisions, he makes it fun along the way.
Garry Kishbaugh has been my coach for several years. The strategies and tactics he teaches are what helped me to elevate my business and profits. Garry has taught me how to look at my business in a different way, change my mindset which has helped me to and grow my business but also love what I am doing again. Garry has helped to organize all those strategies with it laid out by asking the important questions. Ultimately, doing all these exercises that Garry teaches, I have more business and more freedom which has been my ultimate dream.
Garry’s strategies have dramatically expanded our number of new patients even though one of the largest area employers is closing this location and relocating the employees to other cities and states. During our first year working with Garry, our profits were up more than 40%. Because of the increased patient counts we are now planning to add two more operatories and an associate dentist in the next 18 -24 months. When we began working with Garry, we averaged $125,000 per month and we have now had our first $200,000 month.
The impact that working with Garry has been significant. We grew by $1,000,000+ in one year so we are doing very well. We also created a culture where we work as a team instead of being management and employees. We are all team members now.
If you’re ready to finally achieve the results you want with the work-life balance you desire, you’ve come to the right place.
