Transforming the way you live and lead
Gary Hawk is Managing Director of Clarity International®.
Gary serves as an executive coach and mentor for CEOs, business owners and senior executives. He guides and challenges his clients in clarifying business and personal goals, and in thinking through the ongoing means to attain them.
Each coaching relationship is tailored to the specific needs of the client. It focuses primarily on increasing the ability to be an authentic leader of self and others; increasing awareness and insight into behaviors and personal impact; developing clarity of purpose and methods to achieve it; evaluating choices or alternative behaviors; and the planning and implementation of more effective action and increased performance.
With over 40 years experience in both large and small businesses, Gary brings a rich business background to his coaching relationships. He has executive experience working in both manufacturing and service environments.
Gary ran the franchise division of a $450 million health services company. He is an attorney and served as General Counsel for a producer and syndicator of television commercials, as well as a rapidly growing, plastics manufacturer. For several years Gary was owner of a four-unit chain of weight loss franchises.
Since 1994, Gary has also facilitated peer groups for CEOs, and business owners. His peer groups provide a safe harbor for business owners to discuss the sensitive issues and challenges of leading and running a business. It is hard balancing the demands of work, family and personal growth. The groups tackle these challenges head-on. The monthly meetings are a time for visionary, strategic thinking, and for working “on the business”.
