Who is compass business coaching?

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.

How Did Garry Get Started?

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.

Why Should I Trust Compass Business Coaching?

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.  

Business Coaches are Good For Business

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.
