We're a leadership development design and delivery company bringing hip products and services to three primary markets; entertainment, women and technology. We place expert coaches, facilitators, consultants and designers into organizations for short and long-term engagements. All of our experiential learning programs and leadership development products are customized to suit each customer.
Our differentiator? They sell theory, we sell practice!
Barry Posner said, “Leadership development is fundamentally the development of one’s self,” and we agree.
There is no better tool than coaching for a leader who wants to accelerate their performance. It's the proactive component to a leader's professional life; one that helps liberate them from limiting barriers and assists them with leveling up their game!
Bill Gates and Eric Schmidt even endorse coaching and believe everyone needs a coach no matter what their profession.
All of our coaches are credentialed. That's something not all companies can claim. The majority of our coaches are credentialed through the International Coach Federation (ICF), the only global credentialing organization in the world.
The combination of coaching certifications, thousands of hours of practice and advanced degrees specifically in coaching and consulting business leaders qualifies our team to be ahead of the pack.
The icing on the cake is that GumballEnterprises places coaches who are also subject matter experts in our client's given fields of entertainment, technology and women.
Facilitators are conductors, and facilitation is the art of conducting conversations for the sake of growth and development. This type of growth and development leads to a generative outcome for individuals and for the organization.
Gumball's leadership development programs, off-sites, workshops, and retreats are custom designed and deployed to address real business needs. Facilitated engagements are highly experiential and deliberately targeted to specific business scenarios.
Our facilitators are masters at mediating the difficult conversations; all have worked with Fortune 500 companies nationally and internationally, and hold Master degrees or higher in the field of leadership.
Ideation & Design
Though we can't claim to be IDEO or DARPA.....yet, we do approach our design work in a similar way. First we find the greatest projects on the planet, secondly we find the most talented ideators and designers perfectly suited for the task, and thirdly every design is guaranteed to be experiential, pertinent to your business, and fun.
Experiential learning and play are accelerators for development at all ages. We just don't do this because we like it, we do it because it's the more effective way to get the job done.
In addition to our teammates being subject matter experts and brilliant designers, diversity of thought, gender and ethnicity is key. We assure our projects are intentionally balanced with a global and social mindset. Why? Because there is enough research proving it's the smart thing to do if you want a competitive advantage.
Our teammates don't need to be motivated by us, they come to us motivated by the work. And when the work is done we walk away proud and fired up for the next 'furry hairball'.
