Management Team Members Include:
Paul Gillard PhD
As Transformation Associates' founder, Paul brings a wealth of executive-level coaching and consulting experience within the Pharmaceutical, Financial Services, and Manufacturing industries to client engagements.
Paul's successes in enabling organizational transformation efforts are primarily due to his proven ability to engage and motivate executives, line managers, and employees in defining, selling, and realizing both strategic and operational goals. He employs pragmatic, client-centered approaches to enable clients to constructively challenge and navigate their respective "organizational realities" to deliver maximum customer value.
Ultimately, Paul develops close partnerships with clients and adroitly cuts through the "smoke and mirrors" and drive significant change across the enterprise.
Paul holds a Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. He is a member of the American Psychological Association (APA), the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP), the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD), and the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
Paul is likely to be found on the golf course chasing the ever-elusive dream of becoming a scratch golfer when not working with clients or spending time with family and friends.
